Tulsa’s highest and most reviewed Carpet Cleaner. The padding is very thin, but so you get a little bit of comfort, but the carpet is still in place so you don’t have to worry about stretching. Big huge distances of carpet. Carpet cleaning tells us it’s 1998 we are complete carpet today we’re talking about Patty and the different functions and forms of the Patty in your place. You’ve got the mat pad. The slap pads that you were just talking about would be like a double glue pad. It’ll be a slap pad or a mat pad. Then you have no pad, which you just glue the carpet straight to the floor and this allows the maximum durability of the carpet. W nothing else you could do. The carpet would make it last longer than this. This is your maximum mile. Um, and then you have your next level which would be um, or your final level, which is having carpet stretched in place, which is typically done in a residential setting.
Speaker 1: (06:56)
And the carpet that’s stretched in place will hold itself in place with the uh, attack strips on each side and it creates like a tent over the Patty. So the padding stays in place and the carpet on each side is tucked into place. Now this has a couple of different sides that now it used to be, you had a lot more options, but now most people do not give you very many options because it will wear the carpet out a lot faster if you go to some of the higher end options. Tulsa’s Carpet Cleaner since 1998. Those higher end options would be taking your carpet and putting it in through a a and trying to use it outside of your normal sphere. So if you put a, let’s say a three eights to a half inch pad, that would be pretty much considered normal wear and tear. Tulsa’s highest and most reviewed Carpet Cleaner.

And so your carpet warranty would hold just fine. But if you go up to one inch of pad, that is not the way the cargo was designed to be held in place. And so it will void the warranty on the majority of carpets. And the reason is now you’ve moved from half of inch of movement up and down to one inch, up and down. That creates a lot more movement. And because of that, the carpet will wear out a lot faster. Go back to our coat hanger example. That coat hanger could hold that coat in the closet for a long time, but as soon as you start moving it up and down, it will break pretty quickly and you will have carpet that just cannot maintain it stretch because the carpet will break down. It’s not designed to move that much. And so that’s why typically three, eight, and seven sixteens is this standard pads thicknesses for, uh, putting it into your carpet and a half an inch and above typically is either luxury or they just don’t even let you do it because it will void the warranty. Also. It’s just not that comfortable. Put one Japan underneath your carpet as you walk across the carpet, it will kind of feel like walking in sand and your knees and ankles actually start to hurt over time because it’s so much flex and give. It’s like walking your living room and all your hallways and stuff. We’re all like walking through sand every day. It just is an extra wear on all of your stuff that’s just unnecessary. Tulsa’s Carpet Cleaner since 1998.
Speaker 1: (09:22)
It’s a unnecessary extra, uh, wear on the carpet and stuff that you want to get to. Uh, so one of the things that you want to try to do to, uh, help that as you’re going forward is that you need to make sure you’re keeping those, uh, the carpet and the padding in good shape. Uh, one thing that Ron wanted to touch on also while we’re talking about padding is that a carpet Patty is a, I think of it like a two by four. It’s unique in that it never gets seen. Nobody sees the padding that’s under their carpet. They just feel it. So, uh, think of it this way. If you were to have a two by four and you had it in your wall, so the stud in your two by four that’s holding up the wall, let’s hold up the sheet rock holding up the um, brick.

Everything else that’s on the outside that, that’s being held by the, the frame of the house on the inside. If somebody tried to come and sell you a two by four, but they said, Oh, this two by four is a super special. Dubai for this particular two by four is uh, we have actually sanded it down. Tulsa’s Carpet Cleaner since 1998. It’s very a very beautiful two by four. We’ve actually stained it, um, this kind of rich Walnut color. And uh, we’ve actually a hand carved special decorations onto this two by four. And you’d say, okay, that’s cool. Uh, it still is going to go inside my wall, right? Oh yes. But really you should spend a little bit of extra money to get this really high end specialty two by four because it’s going to be the thing that you’re, I mean this is really going to add value to your house and you’re like, yes, I get that, that this would be a very special expensive two by four, but it also is going to be inside of my wall.
