Even if you do not use carpet remnants to replace your existing carpeting you should still realize that they may be useful. Some people cut up their carpet-remnants and use them in order to place under the legs of chairs and tables in order to prevent them from making a permanent indentation in your actual carpeting and the carpet pad. You may have also seen people using carpet remnants as a small mat in their kitchen area or to cover up a stained area of carpet. Most people can find uses for their carpet-remnants throughout their house. For this reason it is always recommended that you save your carpet remnants when you initially purchase a new carpet. Do not think that you will benefit from getting a very small amount of money for your remnants. After all your remnants will match the color and texture of your carpeting they are not meant to be given to someone else. If you save your carpet remnants you will surely be able to find a good use for them.
Getting a good quality carpet steam cleaner is essential to the cleaning process. Make sure you have one that is of good construction. It is very frustrating to keep fixing a machine that keeps breaking down throughout the process of trying to get the carpets clean. A good carpet steam cleaner should also provide enough suction to pick up most of the water put down in the process. Your carpeting should be damp not wet when the entire cleaning process is done. If your carpets are wet it will take a very long time to dry and it is also an indicator that the carpeting is not as clean as it could probably be. The last thing to look at is the scrubbing action. Most new models of a carpet steam cleaner either use a rotating roller scrub brush or spinning scrubbers. I believe either is good but I prefer the spinning brushes because they seem a little easier to remove for cleaning. If you have pets that shed you will probably be cleaning them several times throughout the project.
From the moment a carpet is installed its beauty and life are on a downhill slide. Unlike dirty resilient tiles or hard floor surfaces carpeting cannot be completely revived. It can be compared with a new car which has a terminal life span. Therefore proper carpet maintenance is the key to the extension of the life of a carpeted floor surface. Before wall-to-wall carpeting became popular cleaning was handled primarily by professional carpet cleaners. The cleaner would pick up the carpet put it in a truck and take it to the shop. At the shop the cleaner would measure the carpet carefully and then place it on a concrete floor to vacuum it thoroughly. The carpet would then be scrubbed with a rotary floor machine equipped with a solution tank and a shower feed brush.
I usually plan my base of operations as the kitchen and work the entire project to end in the kitchen. Cleaning your carpet steam cleaner- It seems one of the biggest problems I see with machines breaking down or not working after the first or second use is not taking the time to properly clean out your machine after use. It is very important to flush out the entire machine with clean water to ensure that no soap ends up clogging the solution discharge system especially the discharge nozzles. Many manufactures view lack of cleaning as neglect and are hesitant to warranty any mechanical problems that arise because of it.
