lifting carpert to run cables then replacing carpet
We have just moved in to a flat which has had new carpet laid. I need to run a phone cable under the carpet rather than a mile around the door frames.
There are two door strips I could use to get under the carpert one is a joiner where 2 bits of carpet are joined, the other is a round edge type where carpet meets vinyl.
the latter seems to be screwed down - i noticed after lifting slightly. I have no access to the screw heads so how do I remove it with out pulling the screws out of the floor?
and if i do lift the joining strip to run the cable (its about 3ft wide the carpet between the round edge and the joining one) Will the carpet go back down ok or should I avoid lifting it all together? Is there any thing else I should know?
one more question, any easy way to deal with new carpet fluff - the stuff gets everywhere.
