Carpet is the most commonly used material installed on hardwood floors. Did you know that once you are aware of a location of a carpet seam, you will always see it? If someone told you seams are not visible, they lied to you. Even with repeated vacuuming and seam sealer, they won't go away. That's why most people replace their carpets every 3-4 years. Your FloorLabor.com specialist will abide by your preferences for seam placement, preferably in non-high traffic locations.
