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.
Once youre familiar with how your carpet is constructed its easier to envision how patching works even if youve never done it before. These are the basics of your carpets anatomy and should help you in assessing how far down the damage has gone which is an important step in carpet repair and carpet patching. If you dont have any leftover carpet from the installation we may be able to steal some carpet from a closet beneath a radiator or from under a piece of furniture that you never move. (Now youll never move it for sure.) If your carpet is a relatively common style a nearby retailer may have a perfect or near-perfect match that you can purchase. (The chances of finding a perfect match are somewhere between slim and none.) If you need to patch a significant area that matches the rest of the house (such as several steps in a stairway or a hallway one great carpet patching alternative is to re-appropriate matching carpet from another room such as a bedroom. Re-carpeting just that one bedroom means the hallway/stairway still matches the rest of the house and costs a LOT less money than replacing the carpet for whole common area.
Be sure and read the mixing direction on the back of the product you purchase. A solution that is too diluted will not clean and too much soap will leave your carpeting full of suds and will not extract properly. The nice thing about many new carpet steam cleaner machines on the market is their ability to mix the correct amount of soap right onboard the machine so you dont have to worry about measuring. I would recommend cleaning furniture drapes and small area rugs first. Any over spray from cleaning these will end up on the carpeting and will be extracted later anyways. Always check labeling before cleaning furniture to make sure that it can be cleaned with water. Also steer clear of soaking down furniture too much with the solution. Because furniture is contoured and uneven it is difficult to create a good seal on the extraction wand which can limit the water removal.
This process was accomplished with a profusion of soap or detergent and water. When the operator thought that the carpet reached maximum cleanliness the carpet would be very thoroughly flushed with water and then suspended on a rail in the air to dry. Another weighted rail would be on the lower end of the carpet to stretch it back to its original dimensions. When the carpet was completely dry the back was resized to replace the sizing lost in the scrubbing procedure. After this step the carpet all clean and beautiful once again was returned to the owner. It was good for another few years of traffic. Although this cleaning method is still employed today it is probably used to a lesser degree since wall-to-wall carpeting has become popular. Wall-to-wall carpeting cannot be removed to provide it with a thorough scrubbing. Therefore one must resort to a variety of alternative methods to achieve this same end. Basically this consists of three steps: a thorough vacuuming spot cleaning of the surface to be scrubbed and the scrubbing-cleaning operation. The cleaning operation may be performed in a variety of ways generally divided into two classifications: surface cleaning and deep cleaning.
