Just as carpet manufacturers specify the appropriate padding type for individual carpet types so they also specify appropriate carpet stretching methods and amounts. Whats right for some types may not be appropriate for others. For example tufted carpet with a jute fiber backing needs to be a bit tighter than tufted fiber with a synthetic fiber backing. And some woven carpets will stretch in one direction but not the other. Consult manufacturer instructions or a carpet repair specialist so you have all the facts before you get started. After all knowing what youre working with is just as important as knowing what youre doing.
In spite of these advancements carpet for a household can represent a significant investment. If you are planning to stay in your home for years to come having carpet installed that will be durable and stand up to years of use in an important consideration. To achieve that there are some steps to take that will ensure you get the best value for your investment. Here are some factors to consider. Padding: Keeping carpet looking its best for many years begins even before you look at the first carpet sample. It all begins with the carpet padding. When it comes to carpet padding it may be tempting to go with the least expensive option since its one of those "out-of-sight out-of-mind" materials.
Most people are familiar with the fact that padding lies below the carpet which helps give it its comfortable feel when you walk on it. This is the bottom layer. Common types of padding include foam (cheap) rebond frothed foam slab rubber waffle rubber fiber (such as jute recycled textiles synthetic fibers etc.) and in some cases special Berber padding. Between the pile and the padding is the backing which is made of two layers and holds the fibers together so the carpet doesnt fall apart. When the carpet is manufactured needles are used to push the fiber through the primary backing. Its then sealed against the secondary backing with very strong adhesive to keep everything in place.
As time passes by the popularity of carpets in homes have changed the way that people are cleaning their carpets. In the past carpet cleaning only meant having to use baking soda paste scrub in order to remove whatever is trapped in the carpet fibers. As time passed by people have devised so many cleaning methods in order to ensure cleaner carpets.
