That’s a lot of extra sweater. You’re like, well where do all the extra sweater come from? And the extra sweater comes from the fact that over every foot the carpet can relax just a little bit. We’re talking about small, tiny amounts, but every foot it starts to add up. By the time you get all the way down to 10 feet, you’ve got maybe one inch. So you got, you know, fractions of an inch growth here and there and a lot of the growth so to speak. The carpet doesn’t really grow, it relaxes. So a good example we tell all of our customers is think of getting a nice pair of new leather shoes and those nice pair of leather shoes have a uh, you get them the nice tight fitting. Now, you know, just so you can put them right on, start to enjoy them. They fit just perfectly. Tulsa’s carpet cleaner since 1998.
Speaker 1: (23:07)
And then over about three to six months as you walk around in these shoes, you start to break the shoes in and as you break those shoes in, that will start to relax and you will start to form around your foot a bit and they may even start to get a little bit bigger. I’ve got some brands that buy a half size smaller because they know as they wear them, they will then break them in so there’ll be a little too tight to begin with. And then there’ll be the perfect tight tightness after they’ve worn them for a month or two. Let us be your carpet cleaner. I got other people who buy a shoe that’s a little bit loose to begin with and then it’s just sloppy loose after a couple of months and they like it. They want something that it can just slip right on and write off. They don’t want to have to try to shoehorn it on.
Speaker 1: (23:48)
They want it to just take a foot, push up and just drop your heel right into it. No real resistance at all. So depending on what you want, you know that that’s possible and that is what happens with carpet. As you walk on it, it bends up and down. Now the exception that we’re all, all the things that we’re talking about right now, stretching, et cetera, is all about carpet that has been stretched in. These are stretched in place. Carpets, the commercial spaces do not use stretched in place purpose and you might ask why. Why would you not stretch the carpet in in a commercial space that you do in your residential spaces? There’s two answers to that. One, the first part was comfort. People in a home want to have carpet that’s more comfortable and are used to carpet that has a better feel to it than normal places do. And so they’re wanting to have this princess and the pea experiment, they want to have something that’s kind of spongy and rebounding and feels good. Tulsa’s carpet cleaner since 1998.
Speaker 1: (24:45)
And so they want something that’s kind of plush. We want that posh experience in a commercial space. They don’t care so much about the posh experience. They care more about durability and longevity because if you put together, put all the carpet into commercial space and then fill that commercial space up, you really don’t want to pull that carpet back up anytime soon because it’s a, a Monster’s undertaking to redo the carpet through an entire floor of an office building or through an entire theater in. And every theater, uh, plays that you’ve put it down. Let us be your carpet cleaner. So what they do there is they forsake comfort and they go for durability. And so to do that, they actually take the carpet and just glue it straight to the floor. And when you blew the carpet straight to the floor, then the carpet no longer moves. It will sit right there in place because it is glued in place and if it no longer moves, you know no longer need to have a need to worry about the wear of it.
Speaker 1: (25:42)
Moving up and down, let’s talk about this many times before, but if you take a coat hanger, you can put your coat on it, put it in your closet and you will hang there just fine holding your coat for a year, two years, five years, maybe 10 years, could be a multiple decades that you have that coach sitting here with no problem at all and then you have a coat hanger and you need to that you take the coat off of it and you’ve been the coat hanger up and down and as you bend it up and down you will quickly find out that the coat hanger will break that metal coat hanger that has been sitting there for over 10 years holding your coat with no problem. All of a sudden breaks within just a few minutes of bending up and down because it was meant to hold its structure and strengths without moving. Tulsa’s carpet cleaner since 1998.
Speaker 1: (26:28)
But if you start to move it and now start to get extra wear against it that it was not designed to have the same thing as with a branch on a tree, it’ll be fine just sitting there, but then you have a strong enough wind or a strong enough storm and all of a sudden the branches snap right off. Can they get bent to beyond the capacity they had to flex carpet is real similar in that as you move up and down, every time you step on it starts to slowly break down just a little bit and an average carpet should last 10 2030 years. Let us be your carpet cleaner. You know, it moves up and down and it’s enough. It’s got nothing to last a city that I can move up and down without bending and breaking. But if you put thick padding underneath the carpet, the carpet will move up and down a lot and it will quickly where the carpet out faster than you would than it is designed or expected to wear out.
Speaker 1: (27:19)
