Then a third bead of seam sealer is supposed to be applied to one edge of the seam to "weld" together the carpet panels. Most carpet installers and retailers are unaware of this requirement. It is no wonder that seams are fuzzing in so many buildings. Unfortunately the blame for fuzzing seams gets placed on the carpet manufacturer the carpet cleaners the vacuum cleaners and the latest one is the new LEED approved carpet adhesive. There is nothing further from the truth. The reason the architects and the carpet manufacturers insist on all cut edges of the carpet be encapsulated with a seam sealer is that they need it. The construction of carpet and the adhesives used to bind the primary and secondary backings has changed for a number of reasons primarily to make carpet a carpet "greener".
A large carpet in a small room will just make the room look even smaller and cluttered and the beauty of the carpet will not shine through. Balance is key so you might want to consider selecting an appropriate shape that complements your room(s). A rectangular carpet looks great in large spacious rooms whereas you could opt for an oval carpet for a smaller room. These days carpet buyers are also experimenting with shapes like triangle rhombus as well as asymmetrical shapes. This is going to be one of the most important factors that will determine the longevity of your carpet. Most of the time carpets are placed at the heart of any room and the chances of being walked across or upon it are quite high.
Even if it doesnt rain very much in your part of the world take into consideration the amount of humidity and general dampness in your area. For a different look in outdoor carpeting plush carpet is available. Most outdoor plush carpeting should be installed in covered areas only. For fully exposed areas use a high grade grass carpet with a marine backing. Outdoor plush carpet not only looks different it feels different when walked upon. Mid grade plush carpet is suitable for application in covered outdoor areas receiving low foot traffic. For higher traffic areas use a high grade plush carpet.
Carpet in high traffic areas of the home such as halls and stairways can be problematic if you dont make the right choices. A tough hard wearing carpet is a must. When youre buying a carpet the hard wearing ones will be clearly marked but if in doubt ask your retailer. Even if youre buying your carpets online dont forget that you can still ask questions. Any good online retailer will soon reply to your emails and will answer your phone calls promptly. You should also consider colour in these high traffic areas. You may have to compromise for the sake of longevity. You may have your heart set on a pale cream hall carpet to brighten up your dingy entrance way but in reality youll be spending so much time trying to keep it clean that youll probably wish youd gone for something a little darker. Halls get a lot of wear and tear especially if you have a large family. A dark or mid coloured carpet with a pattern is the best for not showing the dirt.
