Do I have to remove my old carpet?

What about the bedrooms?

All sheets, blankets, and spreads should be removed from beds before the installers arrive. All items from the tops of dressers and from closet floors should also be cleared.

What if my doors no longer close?

Some doors may need trimming to accommodate the thickness of your new carpet. Doors that do not open and close properly due to the new floor may be removed during installation, and it will be up to you to have the doors cut and re-hung.

What about the molding?

It may be necessary to remove moldings and reattach them during installation. Because some moldings, particularly quarter round, are fragile, breakage could occur. If it does, you will be responsible for replacing them. Scratches or nicks to baseboards are also a possibility, and you will be responsible for the touchups. Shaw's revolutionary soft carpet backing, SoftBac, virtually eliminates damage to walls and baseboards during installation.

How do I maintain tile flooring in a dusty Arizona environment?

Who moves the furniture?

You should detach wiring from TVs, VCRs, stereos, and computers. You should also clear desktops, tabletops, and bookshelves.

Will you move a piano?

The complimentary removal of furniture is often limited to those items that two men can easily handle. Some retailers may charge an additional fee for large, cumbersome items, including pianos, pool tables, aquariums, and oversized furniture. All of these items may vary by retailer and you will need to verify this with them before installation of your new carpet.
