    Carpet fitted using glue?

    Flooring Specialists

    I'm supposed to be getting a carpet fitted in a few weeks. The fitter told me that he'll be using a glue and I'm worried about this. Should they be using glue at all? Will I be able to get it up if needed as there is pipework under the floor. Any advice before the installer comes would be great! Thanks in advance.

    "If the carpet is being installed without underlay then glue is the only way it can be fitted properly, if it is only a perimeter fix then removing it at a later date should not pose a problem"

    "If it’s spray adhesives it’s ok. If the carpet is going down with underlay then they should use grippers."

    "If you are having a feltback carpet fitted the fitter will use a spray adhesive around the perimeter of the room, this can easily be pulled back to gain access if needed."

    Some carpet fitting types require using glue, however the fitter can use glue with very small grab. Of course you need to ask about that and take full responsibility of choosing this method which will allow you to easy access to sub-floor."

    "We all would need more info to answer the question.

    What carpet/flooring is being put down?
    Is it going on underlay?
    What type of subfloor? Concrete or wood (floorboards etc.)

    He may be correct or he may be wrong but everyone would need to know the basics before giving a definitive answer."
