Helpful Reminders for Carpets
All our fitters are fully competent in their trade and we have every confident in them fitting your Carpets to the highest standards. To assist us in the preparation of your carpet fitting could we ask the following questions to ensure our quality of service.
1) Will the rooms be cleared of furniture?
2) Will existing floor coverings require uplift and disposal?
3) Are there any pipes or electrical wires we should know about?
4) Will existing doors clear the new carpet?
5) Do any loose floor boards need securing?
6) Will any valuable items need to be moved to gain access to areas to be fitted?
7) Do you know where any joins may be?
All carpets are liable to pile shading differences, light and dark areas arising from unequal surface pressure. This is not a manufacturing fault and is not detrimental to the wear of the carpet. The regular use of a suction cleaner with a beater bar, and on Saxony and long pile carpets, a carpet rake is recommended and will ensure lasting satisfaction with your purchase.
All berber carpets produced involve the use of random blends of natural colours. As a result, when seen in full widths, a linked effect may be apparent which is not always visible in short lengths. This is not a manufacturing defect, but is characteristic of Berber carpets, which are primarily intended to offer the purchaser a product which resembles the “hand-made” carpets and rugs produced by Berber tribesman, from whom the name is derived.
