Maintaining your economy carpet tiles is as easy as follows:
- Spills should be removed immediately with an absorbent cotton cloth and clean water.
- For tough stains, you can remove any floor carpet tile to replace it with a leftover tile from installation.
- If you choose to vacuum your economy tiles, we recommend using a vacuum without a beater bar as to not damage the fibers.
Carpet Tiles are easy to install. Installation of our Carpet Tiles is as follows:
- Thoroughly clean subfloor. It must be clean, dry, smooth and dust free.
- Find the center point between the two longest wall, mark near each end of the room. Connect center points with the chalkline. Using carpenter's square, draw a perpendicular line crossing the first line at the center point. Extend the perpendicular line to the walls by striking a chalkline.
- In one swift motion, remove protective backing and place first tile in the junction of the two lines at the center of the room. Lay tiles with ribs 90 degrees to each other working from the center of the room out. Continue installation to the walls until you are unable to lay a full tile.
- Next lay a full tile upside down, with the pattern in the proper direction, and overlap the last tile installed near the wall. Mark a straight line on the bottom of the tile where the tiles overlap. Cut the bottom of the tile along the line. After cutting, lay the tile with cut edge to the wall.
