Common Questions

What needs to be considered when using Ever in offices and studies?

tretford Ever is suitable for use in living areas. If your office chairs are on wheels you should safeguard your carpet by using a heavy duty plastic carpet protector.

As an alternative, we recommend using our heavy-duty to extreme wear carpet styles:
SL tiles – heavy duty (for home office)
PLUS 7 – broadloom or tiles – extreme wear (for commercial use in office, for example)

Are the seams obvious when several carpet webs are laid side by side?

It is not possible to prevent a slight seam when laying several carpet webs. A particularly neat seam can be achieved by trimming the factory-finish edge. As a rule, it is virtually impossible to perfectly align the individual ribs in two webs because the carpet shifts slightly as the glue dries.

Usually the seam is quite noticeable right after laying when the room is still empty of furnishings. In our experience, this appearance soon diminishes due to the traffic on and use of the carpet. With time, the ribs "settle" and the individual fibres become overlapped. This conceals the seam somewhat so that it is less noticeable. It is, however, not possible to make the seam completely "invisible".

What do I need to consider when laying tretford on stairs?

Use tretford stair profiles when laying tretford Interland or Ever carpet on stairs. We recommend tretford Plus 7 broadloom carpet for stairs with heavy traffic. 

Are tretford Ever products manufactured without mothproofing treatment?

Yes, thus tretford Ever is an alternative for anyone wanting to do without such substances: it is deliberately manufactured without the addition of mothproofing agents.

All other tretford carpeting qualities with natural materials are treated with mothproofing agents, more specifically with permethrine. The GUT (Association for Environmentally-Friendly Carpeting) calls for all carpeting made of natural materials to be protected against moths. To do so requires at least 120 mg permethrine for every kg of wool or hair. We comply with the prescribed quantity.

Does tretford have to be glued down?

The entire surface area of the continuous carpet should definitely be glued to the sub-floor with a suitable carpet glue in order to guarantee the full 5 year warranty. Careful preparation of the sub-floor is essential for optimum results. Please also observe our detailed carpet laying instructions.

What do I need to consider when laying carpet over underfloor heating systems?

When laying tretford continuous carpet over underfloor heating, make sure the entire surface area is glued down. Observe the supply temperature of the heating system.

An electric underfloor heating system, for instance, has a supply temperature that is too high, which is why tretford carpet is not suitable for use with this type of system.

Ensure that there is sufficient relative humidity during the heating period.


Can tretford also be used in cellar rooms?

Prior to laying tretford carpet, regardless whether carpet tiles or continuous carpet, ensure that the sub-floor is absolutely dry, level and free of all grease and dust. It is essential that a moisture barrier be added prior to laying the carpet in damp cellar rooms to prevent the carpet from warping.

Why is broadloom carpet only available in a width of 2 metres?

Owing to production factors, it is not possible to manufacture tretford carpets wider than 2m. The advantage of this width is that the carpet rolls can be transported more easily in stairways, for example.
