When you begin to shop for carpet bring a detailed description of the room where it will be installed. How much foot traffic will there be? Are there outdoor entry points? Does the room get direct sunlight? Do you have pets? Will this room be used regularly by children? Knowing these answers will make it easier to work with a carpet professional to be sure you purchase carpeting that is best suited to your needs.Color: The color of the carpeting can really set the mood for a room; from elegant to cozy and even dramatic. Lighter neutral colors give a feeling of openness and space and work well with bold colored furnishings walls and accessories. For a warm cozy feel more color in the carpet may be something to consider.
From the moment a carpet is installed its beauty and life are on a downhill slide. Unlike dirty resilient tiles or hard floor surfaces carpeting cannot be completely revived. It can be compared with a new car which has a terminal life span. Therefore proper carpet maintenance is the key to the extension of the life of a carpeted floor surface. Before wall-to-wall carpeting became popular cleaning was handled primarily by professional carpet cleaners. The cleaner would pick up the carpet put it in a truck and take it to the shop. At the shop the cleaner would measure the carpet carefully and then place it on a concrete floor to vacuum it thoroughly. The carpet would then be scrubbed with a rotary floor machine equipped with a solution tank and a shower feed brush.
Adding carpet remnants to your living room can be perfect for preventing your existing carpet from getting damaged. A carpet remnant is considered to be any remaining strip of carpet that is left-over from your carpet-installation process; remnants will vary in size and shape. They are typically cut down to a specific size in order to help fill in a carpet space that is damaged or that is getting replaced. When buying a brand new carpet for your home chances are good that you saved all of the extra carpeting that was not used. You may have sold it but most people choose to save their excess carpeting due to the fact that they know that they may need places of their existing carpet to get replaced.
When it comes to vacuuming invest in a good quality vacuum cleaner. In the long run it will save you money on two fronts: your carpets will last longer and you will get more years use from your vacuum. A good vacuum cleaner also removes more dust and allergens from carpeting and keeps the air cleaner as well. To maximize the life of your carpeting you should have it professionally cleaned once or twice a year. Vacuuming alone cant provide the required deep cleaning your carpeting needs. Of course its important to clean spills as soon as possible but over time they will leave their mark. Even home carpet shampoo machines have limitations. Its common for do-it-yourselfers to not get cleaning agents completely rinsed and removed. That residual detergent leaves a bit of a film on carpet that actually attracts dirt resulting in carpets being soiled and stained sooner.
