Home gym on carpeted loft?

Recommended Posts

Just moved into new home with fiance and kids. 

I have no idea how to even judge what kind of weight and force(from deadlifts) the floor of this loft can handle. 

I'm planning to have a bench press, a hex bar for squats, many dumbells, 2 or 3 barbells, 6 to 8 45lbs plates, and a cable machine. I'm guessing up to 2 or 3 thousand pounds of equipment? 

Should I check the integrity of the loft? 

Whats the best way to do so? 

Is the carpet a problem? 

I would like to mount wall mirrors.

Should I replace the carpet with something else? Or can I put something over the carpet that won't mess with my balance and footing? 

How do I manage the long term effects of sweat to the floor?
