I usually plan my base of operations as the kitchen and work the entire project to end in the kitchen. Cleaning your carpet steam cleaner- It seems one of the biggest problems I see with machines breaking down or not working after the first or second use is not taking the time to properly clean out your machine after use. It is very important to flush out the entire machine with clean water to ensure that no soap ends up clogging the solution discharge system especially the discharge nozzles. Many manufactures view lack of cleaning as neglect and are hesitant to warranty any mechanical problems that arise because of it.
If you have carpet that looks more like the ocean than a flat carpet you may have a problem. As soon as it begins to loosen up and become rippled it wears faster. The bigger the ripples the faster the ripples grow. This is because carpet is designed to lay flat and not move at all. When you walk on carpet ripples it causes the carpet to move up and down further loosening it. If your carpet is loose its time to take action. In most cases carpet stretching can fix the ripples and buckles and theres no need to waste money replacing the carpet because of how it lays. Carpet stretching is a common type of carpet repair that essentially involves pulling the carpet up from around one or more edges of the room re-stretching it to proper tightness cutting the carpet to the proper length tacking back down into place and finally tucking it in along the edge.
Once youre familiar with how your carpet is constructed its easier to envision how patching works even if youve never done it before. These are the basics of your carpets anatomy and should help you in assessing how far down the damage has gone which is an important step in carpet repair and carpet patching. If you dont have any leftover carpet from the installation we may be able to steal some carpet from a closet beneath a radiator or from under a piece of furniture that you never move. (Now youll never move it for sure.) If your carpet is a relatively common style a nearby retailer may have a perfect or near-perfect match that you can purchase. (The chances of finding a perfect match are somewhere between slim and none.) If you need to patch a significant area that matches the rest of the house (such as several steps in a stairway or a hallway one great carpet patching alternative is to re-appropriate matching carpet from another room such as a bedroom. Re-carpeting just that one bedroom means the hallway/stairway still matches the rest of the house and costs a LOT less money than replacing the carpet for whole common area.
Over soaking your carpeting- Be careful not to over soak your carpeting. While getting caught up in the frenzy of getting you carpets as clean as you would like you may want to go over spots several times until the water extracted will virtually run clean. The problem with this can sometimes be getting too much water soaked into the carpet pad which can then easily mold or mildew. Depending on several conditions that vary from house to house drying can be a problem for some and not others. I would suggest if you would like to get your carpets as clean as you can breaking up the project into two different weekends to allow the carpet ample time in between to dry.
