Replacing Carpet in Rented Property

By Andy Laird  |   |  Sep 9, 2015

At all our shops across the South of England, we get many enquiries about replacing carpet in rented property. It is something that is necessary sometimes, between tenants and is something we do a lot of and also an aspect that we are really good at.

The flooring that you need will depend on the type of house and the tenants that you will be letting to. If the property is for multi person occupancy or student let, you will need to purchase functional, hard wearing carpet that is easily cleanable. Bathrooms and kitchens will need a robust vinyl, preferably in a neutral colour that will go with fittings and units that are already in place.

If the property is of a higher specification, then the carpet will need to be as well. Good quality man made carpets will probably be more advisable due to price suitability and for the ease of cleaning and maintenance. Wool blends are softer and with good colour schemes, but in many cases will outlast the length of the letting term. This means that you will need to consider changing the carpet at the time of the new tenancy.

Fludes Carpets have a long experience of property letting flooring requirements and are able to provide a quick and simple process to make the job of arranging the new flooring easy and without inconvenience to the landlord or letting agency.

Carpet types that we would recommend are available in all of our stores; the most common are listed below. Generally we would recommend carpets and smooth flooring that is not completely plain in colour and in very hardwearing areas we would recommend a loop pile.

Polypropylene loop pile carpets from £8.00 sq.m to £16.00 sq.m

Polypropylene and Stainfree Nylon ranges cut and twist pile ranges from £10 to £25 Sq.m.

We can arrange for Letting agencies to have sample books of selected ranges to allow a choice being made without the need to visit our stores, we can then collect keys to a premises, measure and then send a quote by email or fax directly to the agency for approval. Simple, safe and speedy.
