Installing Carpet in Your Garage

Installing indoor/outdoor carpet in your garage can be a great way to prevent dirt and mud from being tracked into the house. It’s fairly inexpensive and only needs small pieces of carpet tape to hold it down.

Attaching the carpet with tape, rather than glue, makes it easy to replace when it becomes worn and damaged. Make sure the floor is clean prior to installation, or the tape won’t stick.

    • Hi Sonya,
      Since most glues are meant to be permanent, it can be hard to remove them. Glues that are not waterproof can often be broken down by soaking the item in hot water. Solvents like denatured alcohol, mineral spirits, and acetone may work on some glues. Other more permanent glues, like epoxy glue, can be next to impossible to remove once cured.

    A ‘property inspector’ is not qualified to comment on this.
    Check NFPA regulations.
