Every once and awhile people find that their carpeting has stains that they cannot remove no matter how hard they try. They may also find that high-traffic areas of carpeting look flattened and discolored. When you want to fix the appearance of your existing home carpet with a new one you should first consider replacing the areas that are bothering you the most. One way to target highly-specific areas of your carpet for replacement is by utilizing carpet remnants. Replacing your existing carpet with carpet-remnants is very easy to do and will look great once you are finished. The reason that you will end up with an excellent-looking carpet after adding carpet-remnants is due to the fact that the carpet remnants are the exact same color material and texture as your existing carpet.
Choose a scrap of carpet thats leftover from the original installation for the carpet patch. If you dont have any leftover scraps of carpet then youll need to remove a piece from a closet or from under a piece of furniture. Some people try to find a piece of matching carpet at a carpet store but its nearly impossible. On occasion we will have the customer buy some carpet from a carpet store that is very close to matching. We then take carpet from a closet to do the patch with and use the new carpet in the closet. Determine the direction of the nap. Carpet lays down more when you brush your hand in one direction than in other directions. Its incredibly important for proper carpet patching that all the carpet runs the same direction. Sometimes its really hard to tell which way the carpet nap runs. All I can say is to keep brushing your hand in different directions until you really get to know the carpet. If you keep at it youll figure it out.
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.
The last phase basically neutralizes the carpet leaving it to be as presentable as it must be. Cleaning will leave no dirt behind but instead remove cleaning residue. Carpet cleaning involves methods mentioned and these usually leaves some of the cleaning materials in the carpet. This can actually do more damage and even leave the carpets looking dirtier. This is why this last step should never be neglected and always be done to ensure that the carpet is left clean as it should be without leaving behind particles. This even makes the carpet feel as soft and looking as new as it was. Whether you would have your carpets cleaned by professionals or by yourself you should be knowledgeable when it comes to carpet cleaning.
