Home: I'm laying the carpet myself - how should I proceed on the staircase
By following our instructions, your staircase will receive even better sound insulation.
Laying carpet in a straight staircase
With a view to reducing noise in your house, you had better opt for carpet in your staircase. If you go for this option and to ensure that your floors do not wear out too quickly, we suggest that you choose high-resistance carpet. For optimal results, proceed as follows:
Phase 1: Clear the floor of any impurities.
Phase 2: Start with the bottom step, gluing the step and riser - having cut just one piece of carpet - using highly-adhesive glue. Compliance with the sticking time is essential.
Phase 3: Assemble the carpet by applying the covering on the riser first and adjusting the edge cut at the bottom of the floor covering.
Phase 4 – Lay out the top of the step.
Phase 5 – Smooth down the carpet using a smoothing tool.
Phase 6 - Level off any excess and repeat the operation.
There are highly-adhesive dry glues that can be used instead of neoprene.
What if there are turns in my staircase?
In that case, you must fold the carpet back against the step and affix it. If you chose a thick carpet, you will need to cut out the turn for each step so the material can align neatly with the shape of your staircase.
