Carpet Tiles Fleet

Cheap Carpet Tiles Fleet (01252)

If the surface of your floor is flat and sound, carpet tiles are a great value way to quickly and easily apply an attractive floor finish. Carpet varieties are offered for any room, and come in a wide range of colours, styles and textures to enhance any interior decoration.

Before fitting you must ensure your floor surface is sound, level and free of debris. Since carpet tiles feature a cushioned backing membrane there is not any need for underlay. This means that installation can start straight away and the tiles can be laid without fuss. Affix the carpet tiles to the floor with spray-on adhesive, for those smaller areas, or use liquid glue applied with a foam roller if it's a large area. It's advisable to glue either the floor or the back of the tile, never both, since this will make it easier to remove and replace if stained or damaged in the future.

It's a somewhat different challenge to carpet a flight of stairs than it is with a level, flat room. There are two main types of installation; the wrapped nose method, also called cap and band, and the waterfall technique.
