Preparation Steps: Top 5  Carpet Pre-Installation Tips

Preparation Steps: Top 5 Carpet Pre-Installation Tips

If you’ve recently ordered carpet with installation, then you need to know how to prepare your room for the job properly. There are several things that you must do before the workers arrive. If your space isn’t set up properly, then the worker will lose precious time, and your installation will take even longer. Even worse, if the contractor gave you a per-hour quote, the time that they spend clearing out and setting up the space will cost you more money. Don’t let that happen to you. Instead, follow these five tips.

1) Clear the Room

There should be nothing in the room that the flooring is going to be installed in. This means that you should remove all of the furniture, as well as everything that is hanging on the walls. You don’t want one of the workmen to bump into a picture or painting and destroy it accidentally. Even if they are fully insured (and they should be) this is just one additional headache.

2) Set Up Some Workspace

Not only will the workers be in the room where the new flooring will go, but they will need some space to work. They’ll have some tools with them that need to be spread out. You should clear a few tables or a patch of floor in an adjoining room so that they have plenty of room to work. They’ll thank you for doing so – and your installation will go much more smoothly.

3) Create a Pathway

You also need to create a pathway that leads from the front or side door, whichever one is easier for the workers to use. They’ll be moving in and out for some time bringing in your new carpeting, as well as their tools. Make sure that they have a clear path to follow, and if you want to protect your floors along that path, place some plastic sheeting down. This will keep them from tracking mud or slush in from the outdoors.

4) Remove All Breakables

You also want to remove everything that’s breakable along the path that you’ve just created, just like you did in the room itself. You don’t want anyone bumping into your precious antiques or collectibles. It’s just easier to rehome them until the work is completed.

5) Begin Demolition

One of the last things that you can do before your carpet installation team arrives is begin the demolition job. This means that you can start removing the old flooring. It’s very easy to do, especially if you’re just replacing the existing carpeting. If you manage to get all of the old flooring up and out of the way, all that the installers will need to do is get to work. They can start putting your new flooring in right away.

Ordering carpet with installation and then preparing your space isn’t as tough as it seems. As long as you follow the five tips outlined here, you’ll be in good shape when the contractor and his team arrive.

Here’s What You Need to Know About Extended Travel

If you love exploring the world around you, chances are you’ve thought about traveling for an extended period of time. There’s just one question: how are you going to afford it? Traveling can be pricey, but there are several ways you can make traveling for long periods of time work for you. With planning and preparation, you’ll be able to discover how to afford extended travel and how you can make this part of your life.

Live Simply

The first thing to keep in mind is that you’ll need to live simply. You likely won’t be staying in 5-star hotels if you want to travel for extended periods of time. Instead, make sure you pack lightly and choose affordable housing options. Hostels, for example, can be an efficient way to travel for long periods of time. They are low-cost, offer private room options, and typically have on-site laundry available. This means you won’t have to bring too much luggage with you and you’ll have a safe place to sleep while you travel.

Rent Out Your Home

If you’re going to travel long-term, there’s no need to keep paying for your home or apartment, yet you might not want to sell it. Consider renting out your house or subletting your apartment while you’re away. This can cover the cost of your mortgage or monthly rent payments and ensures that your home is lived in and taken care of while you’re traveling. Just make sure to find a policy for renters insurance online that covers situations where an apartment is being sublet. Note that if you’re going to be out of the country, you may want to hire a property management company to assist you with leasing out your property. They’ll be able to handle emergencies and maintenance requests while you’re gone.

Work Remotely

One effective way to fund your travels is by working remotely. With today’s modern technology, you’ll find there is an assortment of jobs you can take advantage of that don’t require you to attend work in-person. Consider selling graphic design services online, tutoring foreign students through an interactive website, or even becoming a freelance photographer. Working remotely means you can work where you want to and when you want to. It also means you won’t have to put an end date on your travels. At least not yet!

Consider a Local Job

If you want to stay in a particular area for a while, you might consider looking for a local job. Note that this option will depend on the terms of your visa, if you have one. Local jobs can include cooking, cleaning, babysitting, tutoring, or gardening. You might even be able to find a part-time gig bartending or waitressing. The possibilities are endless. A local job means you’ll be able to make money while you live in your dream location, at least temporarily.

No matter where you want to travel, don’t be afraid to make it happen. Planning ahead can be an incredible way to make sure you’re able to reach for your dreams and to obtain your goals. With a bit of thought and preparation, you can discover exactly how to afford extended travel and to make this dream lifestyle a reality for yourself.
