Whatever the method of attachment chosen, it is necessary to store the unfolded carpet in the room for a few hours to allow it time to relax. Make sure the floor is perfectly dry, clean and level. Only after positioning, cutting and fixing can be achieved.

Position the carpet

Bonding is used to stabilize carpet in large rooms or rooms that are heavily trafficked. Choose a suitable repositionable glue. There are special fixers which, while maintaining the carpet sufficiently, allow to replace it without damaging the support (parquet, etc.). The deposits left by the old coating can be removed without leaving any traces. As a carpet is replaced every five years or so in rooms with high traffic, it is a valuable asset.

Unfold the carpet

Unfold the carpet

Place the carpet tile in the center of the room. Unfold it so as to distribute the falls over the whole periphery. Walk in socks and clear the main folds by pulling on the carpet.

Cut the surplus with the cutter

Cut the surplus with the cutter

In the direction of the width of the river (up to 4 m), falls are sometimes excessive. When the carpet is properly centered, it is possible to cut a part freehand, the cutter.

Spread the fixer on the roller

The falls must not exceed 20 cm. The installation completed, fold the carpet on half.
Coat loose soil with fixative: Roll out a thin, even layer.
