Hopefully you vacuum it out, but if you don’t vacuum it out, it will just kind of fall and get shaken down through your carpet and eventually it falls down into the pad and it will sift through the pad and end up on the concrete below. If you hold a moisture barrier pad that every bit of dust that falls into that carpet that falls down in the backing, when it sifts out, it stays in the backing. It can’t go anywhere else. It stays. Also, all the grit and grime in your home stays in the backend of your carpet and it will start to chew up the glue in the backend of your carpet because you’ve got an essence, a whole handful of pound of sand paper sitting down underneath your carpet. Every step you do is rubbing against that, whereas on a traditional padding, it’s not moisture barrier. Tulsa’s Carpet Cleaner since 1998.
Speaker 2: (17:12)
The dirt would fall down into the padding and it will fill up the Patty with Dustin dirt and the backing of the carpet. We’ll have a lot more capacity for dirt. Just filter through it. Every house is this way. Every carpet we installed carpet for about seven years in every single house I ever went to the exception of one house. Um, always there was a layer of dirt underneath the carpet and padding on the ground. Um, and if you ever wonder this, uh, go anytime anyone’s ever spilled water or had a water leak in our home, you will notice that the water comes up a slightly kind of uh, uh, reddish Brown color. The reason it comes up and kind of a brownish color that makes this kind of look like water ring on the carpet and wa, uh, kind of a water stain their call. Tulsa’s Carpet Cleaner since 1998.
Speaker 2: (17:55)
It is because the water has gone down to the concrete and down on the concrete is dirt or sand or dust and yadda in that dirt, sand or dust. Uh, it has mixed in with the water that is spread throughout and that water will mix in with the dirt and the dirt then has turned the water into a, a semi mud kind of color. Think of a, a river as it starts to really churn and flow, the water goes from clear like it would in a Lake with a water stagnant and it goes into this kind of muddy Brown color at the water’s churning through across the ground because it is um, uh, mixing up with the dirt of the river bed. And so the same thing will happen in your home. You mix water across the floor, underneath the carpet and it mixes with the dirt down there and then it floats it back up into the carpet.

Speaker 2: (18:54)
And that’s why after water damage, it’s good to have your profit’s clean, to rinse that dirt back out of the carpet so that it will be taken away. But that dirt, you do want it to remain away from your carpet if you can. So either you vacuum it up and off the carpet or as you walk on it, it will shake itself down below the carpet, underneath the padding, away from the backing of the carpet where it would have the potential to really break it down. Now of course with exceptions, carpet can be really abused and whether no matter what pattern you put underneath the carpet, if you don’t ever vacuum and it’s just really, it takes a beating. Tulsa’s highest and most reviewed carpet cleaner. All carpet is going to break down over time. There’s no carpet out there that’s a hundred years old that is, you know, still looks like it does. When it was new though, I have clean carpets that were up to 20, 30, even 40 years old and it still was in decent shape.
Speaker 2: (19:46)
So not having that moisture barrier padding allows that dirt to fall through the pad and into, down to the concrete below. Uh, and so going back to our first example, um, just like the two by four that has all these fancy bells and whistles, you don’t need all those fancy bells and whistles for your, um, padding because it again is going to be underneath your carpet. So take that extra money to take that extra two, three, $4 a yard and put that into better quality carpet, cause better quality carpet will last longer. Now don’t you want to, you know, balance that between how much you want to put into your home. If you’re only going to live there another two years, don’t put $10,000 in carpet into your home because it’s just you’ll never get that investment back out and it will be wasted money.

Get something that you think is going to last five to seven years so that when you go to leave, you’ll have gotten a good chunk of the use of that carpet out of it out before you go on. It’s sort of like buying a vehicle and expecting to sell it in. Say I bought a vehicle and expect to sell it in two years and I put a hundred thousand mile tires on it. Well, in two years, there’s no way I’m driving a hundred thousand miles on just regular daily use. Now, if I’m some type of long haul truck driver shirt, I’ll put on that much easily. But for just a regular daily use for people who are just driving to work each day, you’re not going to get through a hundred thousand miles. So you’ll put buy these really expensive nice tires and then sell them with only and sell it with only 30,000 of the a hundred thousand miles used off of it. Tulsa’s Carpet Cleaner since 1998.
Speaker 2: (21:17)
And of course the person you’re selling to won’t really care how many thousands of miles are left on the tires. They just think the tires look good. So I’ll just buy it for the price that it was. You’re not going to increase the price by the amount of the tires to just offset the expense you put. And so I always recommend our customers put all of the extra money into getting the carpet that fits their budget best. And then just get standard rebound pad because the rebound pad lasts longer and is a nicer look to it and they all will crush it and feel the same because they are again, a seven sixteenths or half inch, six or eight pound pad is all gonna function the same underneath your carpet. And so this has been our podcast long series, a multiple part series here on Patty and some of the functions and forms that it can have for you and how it can benefit your home. Hopefully that helps to educate you on what it is that’s sitting there underneath the carpet and how you can do to maintain the life and longevity of your carpet.
