Many people install their own tile but dont know how to finish the job with the carpet to tile transition. Often professional tile installers dont know how to finish their job with a proper carpet to tile transition. There are several good ways to do a carpet to floor transition that I will explain in the carpet to tile transition article. When people refer to a Berber carpet theyre referring to a looped carpet with rows. Its not really a Berber carpet but for our purposes here its okay to call it Berber. For an interesting read on the history of Berber carpet click here. Berber carpet repair is often needed due to a snag in a Berber carpet or a pull in a Berber carpet. A pull in a Berber carpet happens when one or more threads get caught either in a vacuum or some other way. Often times its the family pet or a child that pulls Berber carpet and creates the snag or run.
There are several good shampoos on the market depending on the type of carpeting and how dirty it is. There are many different brands and options out there so I really cant give a good recommendation as to which one is best but I would start by reading customer reviews. There are some things to consider that is being considered more and more in the cleaning industry and that is the harmful chemicals that are used many of the traditional carpet steam cleaner shampoos. The two main ones to be conscious of are Perchlorethylene (PERC for short) and Naphthalene. PERC as a popular solvent used in carpet cleaning solutions and in larger exposure amounts can cause dizziness and nausea can lead to kidney and liver damage and is possibly linked to cancer. Naphthalene is also commonly found in carpet cleaners and has been known to harm the kidneys and liver as well as the central nervous system. Both of these chemicals are harmful if the fumes are inhaled; not to mention bad for the environment.
If there is just one Berber carpet row that has been pulled it can be re-burled (glued back into place). If the Berber carpet run is more serious say for example a dog was trapped in a room and tried to dig her way out then a patch is in order. If your Berber carpet is loose then it will need to be stretched. Stretching Berber carpet isnt really any different than stretching carpet of any other type. If a carpet comes apart at the seam it can be repaired in several different ways. One way is to glue it back together another way would be to remove the old seam tape and do the entire seam over. If the seam that came apart is on a Berber carpet then it becomes a bit more challenging.
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.
