Property owners and managers have always favored commercial carpets over other flooring options. However, traditional wall-to-wall carpets seem to be sliding out of favor today as modular carpet tiles become more popular—and for good reasons.
Carpet tiles look and feel just like wall-to-wall carpet, but they also offer some unique advantages. You can customize your carpet flooring by combining different textures, materials, shapes, gradients, colors, patterns, and even sizes for starters. This modular form of commercial flooring in NYC is straightforward to install, replace, cost-effective, durable, and low-maintenance.
Carpet Tile Installation — DIY Steps
If you want to install carpet tiles on a concrete floor, you can certainly do so as a do-it-yourself project with these easy-to-follow steps. (Note: If you want the job done right the first time and with no fuss, you should opt for a professional carpet tile installation.)
- Step 1: Remove all the furniture from the room.
- Step 2. Remove any existing flooring or carpeting before installing the carpet tile.
- Step 3. To ensure that the underlayment and subfloor are completely flat, fill any chips or cracks in the concrete with concrete patch repair.
- Step 4. Vacuum and mop the concrete floor thoroughly to ensure it is clean and free of debris, small particles, and grime.
- Step 5. Use a high-quality concrete sealant to prevent seepage and stop mold and mildew growth. Allow it to dry for at least an hour, or follow the manufacturer's directions.
- Step 6. Mark the center of the room so that the edges and boundaries are uniform throughout.
- Step 7. Install the tiles. Start at the center with one square and work your way out to the wall. Keep an eye on each tile's orientation. Apply the flooring adhesive to each tiled square and press it into place. Continue to align the tiles carefully across the room.
- Step 8. Cut the excess carpet tile—and DONE!
As you can see, laying carpet tiles on a concrete floor is not too tricky. However, for the best results, it is advised that you hire a professional installer.
