There has been a room size area rug sitting in my garage since OCTOBER! I FINALLY decided today---I was through waiting for help---I would put it down myself.
FIRST--you have to get the dining table and chairs out of the dining room---the chairs were a piece of cake---the table was ANOTHER story---finally managed to slide it on coasters out of the way.
Then I brought in the griper pad---Not too bad---light--easy to maneuver--worst thing was getting it unfolded from a 8" x 12" to a 10' x 13'---it's sticky--it grips--therefore it sticks together and you have to pry it apart--square by square by square.
THEN---I get to bring the rug into the house --NOW it is rolled up the LONG WAY--I have to get in the middle--get it on my shoulder--get it in the door and around 2 tight corners. Then you get to cut the plastic and unwind it-----SO FUN---you have to be sure you have it placed where you can just unroll it on the pad---SILLY ME---I started on the wrong end!
After lots of tugging---pulling---swearing OOPS!---I finally have it in place.
Put the chairs back--easy---Now slide the table---WAIT---the sliders don't slide on the rug---SO man (OR STRONG WOMAN) handle it into place.
I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO HAVE A HEART ATTACK AS MY HEART JUST ABOUT BEAT OUT OF MY CHEST!!! WHERE IS A GOOD MAN WHEN YOU NEED ONE?
