Carpet tiles are a real blessing for many people who have need to replace worn or stained carpet areas frequently. 

Carpet tiles are perfect for homes with frequent spills and stains, those with pets that have accidents or folks with high traffic walkways. 

Carpet tiles have become very popular in nursing homes, retirement facilities and hospitals too.

Typical Carpet Tile Sizes:

How do they stick to the floor? 

Pressure Sensitive glue, spot gluing where necessary, or by using double-sided carpet tape.  No special tools required.  A tape measure, chalk line, straight edge, utility knife, and double-faced carpet tape is all that's needed.
