Since 1998 we’ve had many different situations and times to be able to help people with customized needs and their carpet cleaning or their carpet repair. Uh, one thing that I wanted to cover in this particular episode, we’d go over both the care and maintenance of your carbon, but also, um, why some carpet is more squishy or fluffy than other carpet than why other carbons are stiffer and more firm than carbons. carpet cleaning Tulsa And how that affects the longevity and the enjoyment of the carpet. A carpet padding is your main source of a cushion underneath your carpet to change the way that the carpet feels, the way that you, um, uh, work without, throughout, throughout your carpets, life and longevity.
Speaker 1: (01:06)
And so you’ve got to find this right balance between the life expectancy of your carpet and the enjoyment of your carpet on a daily basis. Um, do, we’ll start off with maximum efficiency. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 we’ve seen this many times, but you’ll, you’ll notice it yourself with a carpet that is um, in a commercial space, say at a movie theater or hotel, uh, down the hallways. Most of the time that carpet or in an office space, that carpet is glued straight to the floor. There is no padding underneath it. It is actually just glued straight down. And that is because when a carpet is glued straight to the floor, one, the carpet cannot move. The carpet can’t move, it cannot wear out. Think of taking a hangar, you’ve got a hanger that is sitting in a closet. It can hang a coat on there for a 20, 30, 40 years and it’ll just sit there nice from stiff because it doesn’t move at all.
Speaker 1: (01:55)
You put the coat, hook the hanger on there and it can hold the jacket for a very long time. But if you take that very same hangar and pull it out and start bending it up and down, it doesn’t take you, but maybe 60 seconds to bend that wire and break it in half because now you’re creating, moving the wire beyond its normal limitations and stressing and twisting it in a way that slowly we’ll break it down or actually quickly break it down where that pain or could sit there for a decade and have no problems at all. It can be broken down and destroyed and just a matter of minutes by taking and using it in a way that it wasn’t designed to carpet is very similar. If it start, the more the carpet starts to move, the faster route will break down. Just like that wire bending up and down, it will start bidding up and down and slowly start to degrade both the glue and the backing and the carpet.
Speaker 1: (02:46)
So if you glue that carpet directly the floor, it will never move and it will last the maximum amount of time that it can before it wears out. And typically that type of carpet will wear out because it accumulates dirt in the backing because backing is sitting directly into the ground, end up in a layer of glue. carpet cleaning Tulsa So any dirt that can penetrate down through the backing into the carpet starts to break down the blues in the back of the carpet and the glue to the floor. Uh, this happens because people don’t vacuum it on a regular basis or keep it clean on a regular basis to keep the dirt from really grinding down into it. But a glued down carpet and a commercial space could last 10, 15, 20, 30 years with hundreds of people walking across it every single day. Now, if you had hundreds of people walking across your carpet in your house every single day, your card was going to last maybe one year because you’ve got a nice big pad on it and it allows the carpet to move a lot.
Speaker 1: (03:36)
Now, some of your nights nicer, more poshy, uh, commercial spaces. They’ll actually put a very thin, where they call a slap pad or a quarter inch pad or maybe even up to a three eights dense pad, probably at eight pound pad underneath the carpet. And they’ll actually blew the pad and the carpet to the floor. carpet cleaning Tulsa So here are the carpet is again glued to the floor. It’s not stretched in, so it doesn’t, it has less movement to it, but it has a little bit of cushion underneath it cause it glued to a patty or the carpet itself has a padding built into the back of it and it’s still glued to the floor so it can’t move around reducing the amount of movement it has by giving a little bit of cushion. And this will last the next layer, a little bit less than blue directly to the concrete, but it’ll last a lot longer than if it has a padded installation and a stretched in situation.
Speaker 1: (04:24)
Now most people don’t like that stiff feel in your house. So you switched for the houses into, uh, somebody who has a carpet and pad over each other, loosely laid, and then stretched into place. The tack strips. This will be all you’re stretched in carpets. You don’t use a stretched in carpet in a commercial application because the carpet will wear out the first year at the put in, it become loose and floppy right away. I guess one other one you can do in the commercial aspect is your carpet squares. They don’t stretch or wear down as a carpet square itself gets damaged. You replaced the square and put a new square in, which is a new trend and helps to keep large areas of stuff lasting a lot longer without having to get replaced. Carpet, stretch, carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 uh, we see. We’ll jump right into the last section here quickly about padding.
Speaker 1: (05:15)
For residential spaces, you’ll have simply about a three, eight, seven 16th or half inch padding. And that padding is there to give the consumer a nice soft, cool smooth ride as you walk across the thing. You don’t want it too thick though. Typically they don’t go above a half an inch. Even most manufacturers won’t even let you use half inch anymore. Um, but if you put one inch of, of padding underneath the carpet is going to wear out the carpets so fast, or you end up with wrinkles everywhere. Could the carpet is moving way too much. It’s like walking across a room with sand. So you want to stick with it very, um, you know, five eights, sorry, not five eighths, three sixteenths to a, a seven sixteenths, three eighths area, somewhere in there. Um, to keep a nice stiff feel or you want to use a six pounds and eight pounds padding juice so that you’ll help to extend the life of your home commercial carpet, carpet cleaning Tulsa.
