The dilemma for most condominium corporations is the assumption that carpeting is being installed by spec. When a company who does things properly quotes against a company who does not the price difference is quite substantial. Inevitably the companies who make short cuts or dont know the standards get awarded the contract. Unfortunately the sad truth is very few companies are installing according to standard. Antique carpets add a touch of grandeur and glamour to your home or office interiors speaking volumes about your rich and sophisticated tastes! Antique decorative carpets are extravagantly beautiful home furnishings and solid art investments.
Pile crushing will cause the carpet to look ugly and to start to sag or stretch. Pile crushing is caused when the crushed carpet is walked on all the time and in the same spot or area. So lets say from the kitchen to the sofa is a high traffic area. This is where you will see pile crushing. Hallways are another good example of were crushed pile will show up. A good carpet padding or under lay will help decrease the amount of pile crushing by allowing the carpet to maintain its pile height so it will stay looking newer longer. It has been proven that under lay will increase the useful life of a carpet by as much as 50%.
In case plain water has failed to do the trick dilute a small amount of mild bleach in water together with a small amount of liquid detergent (go for bleach mixtures that can be used on colored fabrics and test in an inconspicuous area such as inside a closet-DO NOT USE BLEACH ON NYLON OR WOOL RUGS). This mixture will help remove the remaining stubborn stains. But if the carpet stain is not entirely removed by the said solution go for a mild chemical stain remover for carpets. You have to choose the milder solution because we all know how sensitive expensive carpet fibers are we want the stain removed but we do not want our carpets damaged.
Most of the manufactures will not void their warranty on the carpet if there is no under lay. You will also find that most carpet manufacturers require the right under lay or pad to honor their warranty. And most installers will not install unless you agree to have the correct type of carpet padding installed. The carpet pad or under lay is available in three basic forms rubber foam and fiber. Each type of under lay comes in several varieties and constructions. The different types and thicknesses will be needed depending on the room the carpet will be going in. Traffic patterns will also determine the type of underlay you will need.
