Sliding heavy furniture: Carpet is made of layers of fabric. When heavy furniture slides across the carpet its likely that it will cause rippling. Latex: if the latex holding the backing together deteriorates its called delamination the carpet essentially loses its grip on itself resulting in buckling and loss of fiber. Improper padding for carpet type. Certain pile types require specific padding types; if these are paired improperly the right amount of grip and support may not be present resulting in carpet buckles. Make sure you consult a trained professional or manufacturers guide when purchasing carpet so you get the right padding to accompany it.
There are basically different phases that need to be completed when cleaning a carpet. Of course this is a very delicate thing in your household which needs to be cleaned properly. Without following these phases you are just risking the worsening of the condition of your carpets so you should always keep these in mind and you are on your way in maintaining the best conditions for your precious carpet. The first phase of carpet cleaning involves the pretreatment of your carpet. This may seem to be an unnecessary carpet cleaning step but in reality this is the most important cleaning step. This prepares and conditions your carpet so that it will be cleaned easily. What is done in this step is that the carpet is spayed or sprinkled with a particular solution that help in cleaning of the carpet. It basically lets the solid particles soils dirt and dust which are trapped inside the carpets to resurface and lift up. This will now make it easier for the particles to be cleaned.
When an original installation is done properly you should never need to re-stretch loose carpet. Proper installation requires a tool called a stretcher or a power stretcher. (Not a kicker kickers arent nearly enough.) When you see ripples wrinkles or bunched-up carpet thats when you know you need to have it stretched. Most of the time a loose carpet can be re-stretched without needing to take apart seams. If seams do need to be taken apart it opens up a whole other can of worms. If theres some furniture in the room we can often use our carpet stretcher without having to clear the room entirely. Often we can move the furniture from one side of the room to the other and stretch one side of the room at a time.
Cut the seam tape to the size of the carpet patch. Line up the carpet seam tape so that half of it is under the existing carpet and the other half of it will be under the patch. Use the glue gun to apply a generous amount of hot glue under the seam of the carpet. Slowly work your way all the way around the carpet until you have glued the carpet patch into place. (hint have a glass of water right next to you for when you get molten hot glue on your fingers. A quick dip will cool it off right away and prevent you from experiencing nearly as much pain.) When gluing the carpet patch down using the glue gun pay special attention to the backing. You want to glue the backing down so that its butted up just right. Also be especially careful to avoid getting the nap of the carpet pushed down into the hot glue. Its a mess when that happens and theres no recovery.
