We were talking previously previous two episodes about repairing carpet and uh, one of the things that we touched on last was making sure that you have some extra carpet for whenever you have.

[00:49] New Carpet. Installs is an important part that most people will overlook, but if you always have excess carpet when the carpet’s finished installing, it will just be reminiscent scraps. They may just be a one foot by five foot piece. It may be just a little, a bunch of little chunks, but a lot of times people will take this excess carpet, roll it up, and they’ll put it in a closet, put an attic space. Maybe they’ll put it in the garage to store it for later. Um, to be able to use it again. Now, one thing I would caution you against that’s I do see customers do every now and then, I quickly told them that they just need to toss it is do not save the excess. Padding. Padding is fairly cheap to buy. It’s not a very expensive material, but it is highly flammable and so you don’t want to store a big roll of pad in your attic space or in your garage or somewhere that if it had it got exposed to some type of heat source or flamed out near it, it would catch on fire really quick comparatively to other materials in your house.

[01:41] So it’s best not to store that in a sight unseen space so that you can make sure that you keep the majority of your home and in good working order. Um, one of the things that’s important, I think is also to make sure that when you are storing these scraps that you can use for later these good pieces of carpet. Some people use them as integral and exit rugs in their house. This could work also, but normally I would keep you, I’d go get a different type of carpet for that. Uh, you can pick up. It’s a great way to make a quick rug. A little sidebar here. A Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 we have, I have recommended to our customers for almost 20 years that the best way to get rubbed, a cheap way to get rugs is to get out there and go to a, any carpet store, uh, an outlet center and go and get a remnant piece of carpet.

[02:26] So a piece of carpet that’s an end run, something that they’ve sold all the rest of the carpet and there’s five feet left. And so they can’t sell that five feet, so they’re going to sell at a discount as a, an extra piece of carpet or as an end run visa carpet or a second piece of carpet. And you could take that piece of carpet, get it really cheap and then cut it into area rug sizes. And then you can have those pieces for like 50 bucks. You can get a five by 10 piece of carpet and then you cut it into 10 or maybe six different little, um, two or three pieces of carpet. And then you can use those entry rugs and your front and back door garage door. And the good side of this is that since it’s so cheap for these different little pieces of frogs that you’ve made, um, and they’re really fluffy and they’ll pick up a dirt off of people’s shoes quickly.

[03:10] It’s keeping your house cleaner is that you can, after six months to a year, you can just throw it away instead of trying to get it cleaned or trying to make sure that your entry mats are always good condition. You could just, um, just chuck the old injury, Matt and bill to make sure that they’re always in good condition because they have been as easily separated in what, uh, be able to take that dirt out of your house. See this so many times where I’ll come to a job or come to a place and their entry, Matt coming in from the garage or into your mat in the backyard, coming into the house is actually so dirty that if you walked across it, you will likely pick up dirt and come in and you can have fresh and brand new shoes. Walk into the house, walk across that entered Matt, and now you have got dirty shoes because you’ve walked across a very dirty intranet that you’ve now picked up the dirt and you’re now bringing it into the house.

[03:54] A carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998. One of the things that I run across so many times is that, um, people are storing their extra carpet in an inappropriate way. Remember that carpet is a valuable, um, fabrica. And just a quick breakdown. You’ve got the backing of the carpet, which is this Nylon Mesh, um, that’s kind of like a big netting that goes across the back of the carpet. You then have on the top, you have all of the fibers of the carpet which are like all these little u shapes. And so the fibers come up and they were all kind of cut to be a certain length and then the middle part of each fiber gets stuck down in, is a squished into a big layer of glue. Glue is gone all across the bottom of the fibers to hold them all together. And then they put it back, you know, at the top that glue in a backing to the bat to that glue to the bottom of the fibers so that the whole I’m a carpet can all stick together and hold together, um, and be able to stand up to where it usage.

[04:47] And one of the thing that’s important about this is that, um, that you remember that it’s all synthetic and so it’s all going to hold itself together. It’s not going to react to water like old carpets use. Do with the juke backing, not have the same type of sensitivity of shrinking and growing quite the same way that older carpets do, but it will remember its shape as it is. It can be molded to a degree. If you put something extremely heavy, it’s kind of cut down in a little hole where that’s pushed. If you roll up the carpet, you can also bend creating crease or folded in a way that over time that it’d be permanently becomes that shaped, sort of like a console. The old console vans that have the front console is covered in carpet. That’s actually just a flat straight piece of carpet.

[05:27] They got wet and then put bricks on and held it around that curved shape long enough that eventually it dried and it molded to that shape, so be careful with your extra remnant pieces of carpet. If you can lay them flat to store or if you do, roll them up, roll them into a circle and do not let something sit on top of them. Also, do not stand them up on end because the ends will then get crushed and flattened and then you’ll end with wrinkles that have been pressed in there for a year to 10 years and when you go to use the piece of carpet, it’s so wrinkled. It’s hard to use. We are carpet, Carpet cleaning Tulsa running community since 1998.
