[00:55] Uh, today we’re going to be talking about, um, dust the, a universal sand paper. Uh, one of the things that’s important is that the whole point of cleaning carpets, the whole point of vacuuming, the whole point of the sweeping and mopping is to try to capture and to remove as much dust grit and debris off of your flooring surfaces to allow them to last longer, to have, to get a longer life out of that surface. Many times they put protective coverings and all kinds of different things over the different flooring surfaces, trying to keep them in good shape. But one thing that we talk about quickly is, um, if you have wood floors and you’ve got a rug over your wood floors, make sure that it’s got a backing on it. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. Many times I’ve seen people have a nice big rug in the room, but they do not have either a backing on the, on the rug or the rug does not have a, um, a mat or a pad underneath it.

[01:53] And the main reason for this, the two parts is one, um, if there’s not a rubberized backing or something on the, each time you step on it, the rug kind of shifts on the floor and move one or two times across it, or even six months or a year of walking across it won’t make too much of a difference, but you get five or 10 years down the road and that rug has rubbed the surface right off of the wood floors because that backing of the rug is like sandpaper to the floor. And any dust that gets through or sits underneath that rug, then every time you step on that rug it rug is moving, is shifting on the dust. The layer of data has sifted through the rug. So it’s good at least once a year to pull the rug back and vacuum out from underneath it because dust does get trapped underneath the rug.

[02:36] And then every time you step on it, you grind that dust into your finish of your wood floors. Uh, the other reason is if there is not a backing on the, are you not a rubberized netting on the back of the rug, then the actual backing of the rug itself can also be pretty harsh and so it can be as rough as sandpaper without any dust or dirt at all just by stepping and on it. Um, so that’s one quick tip to be able to try to extend the life of your hard surfaces when you’ve got rugs or carpets on top of them. The other part is that if you took your hands, I tell customers this all the time, carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. If you take your hands and you rub them together, like you’re in front of a fire or you’re out in the cold and you start rubbing your hands back and forth together, you could rub your hands back and forth together for quite a long time before you’ll start to rub a blister or start to have any problems they get.

[03:27] For the most part, you’ll just generate heat. Just sitting there going back and forth. Now, if I took a bunch of dust or any sand and put them over your hands and then had you rubbed your hands together than your hand, you would probably only go 30 to 60 seconds and the berry most before he started rubbing the skin right off your hands because you add something that’s stronger or more course than the softness of your skin and it will. It will cut through right through your skin and your carpets and your flooring surface and it just the same way. If I took a paper towel and I wiped down all of the dust off of a a the top of the cabinet or off of a table. End Table is sitting for a long time. I took all that dust on the paper towel.

[04:10] Then I went over to a mirror and I started rubbing the mirror with that same paper towel with all of the dust on there and I just kept rubbing it and I went to sat, rubbed it for about 10 minutes. That whole area of the mirror will be completely fogged over and scratched up even though I had a soft paper towel. I had picked up dust off of a end table narrative and then rubbed it on the mirror. It would just, it would just scratch and haze over that mirror and the same thing is happening to your carpets. Every time you walk on them that you’re allowing a layer of dust to just sit down in those fibers. Each time you step on it, the fibers rub against each other and if they’re clean, then they just rub against each other. No big deal, but if they have grit and sand and dirt and chips and little particles down in the carpet, and he showed me step on it, it’s cutting the fibers, causing them to break apart and mix in with each other.

[04:59] Eventually get mad at down carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. We are complete carpet and we’d love to connect with you. It’s real important to try to stay on top of your vacuuming. Stand up top. A regular carpet cleaning. Carpet cleaning is necessary when a backroom can’t get the dust and dirt and debris out of the carpets, so you want to back him on a regular basis. I suggest the first five to 10 feet of your entry areas were dirt, comes in at least a couple times a week and then do the whole house maybe once a month and once you vacuum over and the dirt does not come out with a vacuum, then you need to have us come out to carpet clean because then you need to use a wet process to break down the dirt so that are sticking into the carpet and get those back out.
