How we install office carpet tiles in Dubai
A step by step guide on installing carpet tiles in 6 easy steps:
1. Remove the old flooring or office tiles carpet.
If you have old carpet or any other type of loose flooring currently installed in your basement, get rid of it. Take your time and make sure the floor is clean and dry. You might even want to take this time and add some additional waterproofing to the basement using a good water-based waterproofing sealer before you lay down the new carpet tiles. You’ll need to allow for adequate curing time before you start installing the tiles so before you start waterproofing, make sure you have step 2 done first.
Once the room is all ready for the new office carpet tiles flooring, you need to calculate how many square feet of carpet tiles you’ll need. Do this by measuring the length and the width of the basement floor and just multiply the two numbers together to get the total square footage. Now that you know how big the area is, you’ll know how much square foot of tiles you’ll need. Depending on the size you buy, you’ll just pick up that many boxes of carpet tiles (hint: each box usually has the amount of square foot it will cover)
Acclimate the carpet tiles by unboxing them in the basement and letting them sit for about 24 hours before installation.
To start the actual installation, you’ll need to find the center of the basement floor as this is where you’ll start. It’s actually not that hard if you have a chalk line and a friend. Stretch the chalk line from diagonal corners and snap it to make your first mark. Then do the same from the opposite diagonal corners. Find the centers of each wall and again snap a chalk line from opposite sides. This will make a huge grid on the office carpet tiles floor and where they all cross is the center of the floor and where you’ll start. Don’t worry if your room is not perfectly square, but you’ll be close.
Start on the center line in the middle using full carpet tiles and work your way out from there to opposite walls. There should be no spaces between the tiles and they should be fitted snug together. Don’t forget about the arrows on the backside of the tiles to make sure they are all pointing the same direction. If you are trying to make a pattern, make sure that you follow the pattern of the arrows throughout installation.
When you get to the sides where the walls are, it’s quite possible that a full tile won’t fit. This is where you’ll need the straight edge and the utility knife to cut the carpet tile to fit. Here’s the trick, turn the tile upside down and put it under the last whole tile making sure that the tile being cut is flush to the wall (that tile touching the wall should have the backing face-up now). Using the sharpie, trace the edge of the other tile onto the one that’s upside down. Use your straight-edge if you need to to make the line a little better. Cut the tile on the line using the utility knife. It may be a little hard to cut so just take your time and go over the cut a few times until it’s in two pieces. Turn the cut tile back over and install it just like the others.
