Installation Facts & Preparation

The hard part is over, you’ve selected the perfect carpet for your home! Now it’s time to prepare for your installation. All of Russell Martin’s installation staff members are part of our team so there is no need to worry about subcontractors or inexperience at your installation. Our team has over 70 years combined experience to make sure your installation goes smoothly. But you can help us by being prepared.

Before the Russell Martin installation team arrives, please have all small items, breakables, knickknacks etc. removed from the tops of furniture. Electronics should be disconnected and moved. If we are installing carpet in bedrooms, please have linens removed from the beds, and closets cleared to waist height. Ideally, we hope for 3 large pieces of furniture to be moved by our installers in each room.  Unless already discussed with a member of our design staff during your measure, large furniture items like grand pianos and pool tables need to be moved prior to our arrival.

If you are having painting or other work done in your home, it’s best to have this completed before having the carpet installed. Paint takes around 2 weeks to cure completely, so if you can allow some time between painting and installation, there will be less touch up needed after the carpet installation!

On average, carpet take about 1 ½ weeks to arrive at our warehouse location. Once your carpet arrives, our installation manager will open your carpet and inspect it. We look for any noticeable defects in the carpet, check that the carpet came in the correct length etc. Once your carpet passes our inspection, one of our showroom managers will call to schedule the installation. Installation times vary depending on the complexity of the job, the carpet being installed and the furniture situation. We’ll give you an idea of what to expect when we set up your installation. The staff at Russell Martin works hard to make sure your carpet installation goes as smoothly as possible, every time!
