Determining cost vs. value can be a bit of a balancing act. Understanding use and traffic may also keep you from buying budget priced carpet that over time will be disappointing. Short-term savings may result in greater long term cost. Maintenance: No matter what style or price carpet you choose without proper care and maintenance it will wear-out prematurely and need to be replaced before its time. The single most important thing you can do for your carpeting is summed up in three words: vacuum vacuum vacuum! Regular thorough vacuuming removes sand dirt grit and dust before it can work down deeply into the carpets fiber and backing. When these contaminates are allowed to grind their way into carpeting they have an abrasive action that can damage fray and even cut through carpet fibers.
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.
Turn the carpet patch over and use the straight edge to cut a perfect patch from the back. If you are untrained chances are that you wont be able to cut a perfect patch. (Tip use a fresh blade in the slotted blade carpet knife) Now that the carpet patch is cut exactly perfect without any gaps or overlaps at the seams its time to seal the edges. You can seal the edges with latex or with a glue gun. Just use the slightest amount of glue along both edges so that there wont be fraying in the future. Not everyone seals the edges but it is highly recommended. The carpet patch is cut to perfection the edges are sealed and now youre ready to adhere the carpet patch to the rest of the carpet. The way we do it is to use a special carpet seam tape with an iron or with a hot glue gun. For the beginner Id recommend using the glue gun.
Carpets are indeed one of the most important things that we can find in our homes. These can make or break the look the whole room. This is why most people always make it a point to have carpets in their homes so that their homes will look as elegant and as nice as they should be. This is true only under one condition. Carpets usually look their best especially when they are still clean and new. A newly bought or installed carpet would always pull the look of the simplest room there is. Most carpet owners do make it a point to maintain the cleanliness of their carpets. We all know how carpets attract dirt so much. Even if we try to take care and keep our carpets clean there will always be a stain that will begin to pop out of it.
