Buying a carpet can get really expensive and hence cleaning and maintaining it should be one of your top priorities to get the maximum effect out of this investment. It is advised to vacuum your carpet at least twice a week. If you are someone with a busy schedule and with less time to devote towards cleaning your carpet you will do well to choose one in fibres like olefin nylon and polyester. Besides that you will have to instantly attend to spills so that they do not dry up and set in deeply. Since youre going to spend a lot of moolah on your carpet it makes sense to buy it from a well-known carpet retailer to avoid unpleasant experiences. If you dont know any ask someone among your friends and family who own a good carpet.
Carpeting has had a long and storied history that dates all the way back to the 3rd millennium BC nearly 4000 years ago. Found in Siberia the oldest surviving carpet is thought to have been created in the 5th century BC. Traditionally carpets were handmade composed of thousands of knots intricately woven together to form beautiful works of art too valuable to put on the floor and walk on. Sadly carpet technology remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years. The 1930s changed the carpet industry forever. A few entrepreneurs figured out a method of using a machine to make carpets and almost overnight they were an item that the emerging middle-class could splurge on. It wasnt until the late 1950s with the introduction of synthetic fibers that wall-to-wall carpeting in homes become common-place.
Youve found the perfect carpet and you are thinking about keeping your cost down by using either the old carpet padding or non at all. Stop! Youll regret this decision very quickly. There are good reasons why you need to use carpet padding! Using your old carpet padding isnt a wise decision either because it will have broken down with age in fact when you lift the carpet you may find it is actually crumbling. Most times it will have little or no actual padding left to it. The one youll notice the most is the comfort when you walk on the carpet. Just by walking on the carpet you create a hundred pounds of pressure per square inch on the carpet.
Another installation related issue creating havoc with installations is lack of adhesive being used to hold the carpet to the substrate. If there is one place where corners can be cut its by cutting back on the amount of adhesive used to hold down the carpet. You can double the "savings" if the carpet is a double-gluedown installation. This type of installation is when the carpet is affixed to the underpad and the underpad is affixed to the concrete. There are charts that clearly outline what kind of trowel to use to apply the adhesive on different styles of carpet backings. Unfortunately its rare that installers to abide by this chart. The rule of thumb for a properly affixed carpet is that it would be extremely difficult to peel back a carpet and if you could that there would be legs in the adhesive. Legs in the adhesive means that the where the glue separates from the concrete there are strings of adhesive between the floor and the carpet backing.
