Cutting the carpet around the door
1. Before you can double-sided and to adhere sufficiently, you must vacuum and degrease the soil by using a trichlorethylene substitute, then put the double-sided adhesive around the perimeter of the room keeping it upper protection band.
2. Bring the roll of carpet to one of the walls so that a few inches go up along the plinth.
3. Cut the edge of the carpet vertically at the beginning of the plinth, flush with the bottom of the door frame.
4. Cut the cutter or chisel with precision, the carpet at the base of the frame of the door.
Cutting the carpet around the room
1. Using the back of your cutter, mark the natural fold of the carpet along the plinth. We worked here with a retractable blade cutter.
2. Pass the carpet cutter, being careful to press it down along the plinth. Work slowly to get a clean cut.
3. When cutting with the reamer is stopped (the length of the tool does not allow the carpet to be cut to the adjacent wall), turn the carpet upside down and cut the scissors in a vertical direction. detached by the tool.
4. Turn the corner of the carpet upside down and draw in pencil on the foam back, a rectilinear straight line in the exact extension of the cut made with the leveler.
5. Follow this mark to scissor off the edge of the edge of the carpet.
6. Fold the cut carpet back to its original position and attack the cutter to be cut along the baseboard of the adjacent wall.

2. After locating the exact location of the joint that will be formed by the two carpet tiles, mark a line along the entire length of the room. Use for this a ruler and a pencil.
3. Apply a strip of double-sided adhesive to the line thus drawn. Do not remove the protective paper that will be in contact with the carpet tiles. Of course, you have dusted and degreased the entire area.
4. Position edge to edge accurately, both sides of the liner by removing the protective strip as they are joined.
5. Thus carefully positioned, the two strips are folded over the adhesive tape and form a seal virtually invisible. Slip the joints of the two carpet pieces together with a caster. Apply the same pressure on both sides.
