How To Lay Carpet Tiles on Wood Floor

Answered by Brendan ~ February 13, 2011 ~ No Comments

I have a small cabin and want to install carpet tiles on the plywood floor. The plywood has been down for about five years. We use area rugs for carpet. How do I prep the floor for carpet tiles? Keep in mind the floor in spots did not have any rug so its been walked on.

Preparing your plywood floor is going to be as simple as removing all dirt and loose debris. It would also be a good idea to make sure that the plywood is not de-laminating anywhere because this could cause carpet tiles to come loose. Other than a thorough cleaning of the plywood, finding the exact center of the room for the carpet tile layout is the only other thing you will have to do in preparation for the install. It is also very important to review the manufacturers installation instructions before you start sticking tiles to the floor. If you start with a very clean plywood floor and follow the installation instructions, the installation should go smoothly.
