[00:50] In this episode we’re going to talk about the importance of managing the dirt before it comes into your home. We’ve talked to previous podcast about how dust is the universal sandpaper and all of the different areas that that can affect whether it’d be your rugs, making sure that they stay place and pulling the Mac and dusting underneath them, sucking up underneath them every now and then about having good filtration systems throughout your house also every now and then, open up all the windows and doors and just really changing out all the air so you can get a fresh batch of air and a fresh perspective throughout the house and doing your spring cleanings and fall cleanings. Uh, one of the things that’s important is to, um, also to manage the dirt as it comes into your home entry mats a while they can be decorative.
[01:35] Also have a functional use of being able to knock off the dirt off of people’s feet before it gets into your house. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. Have given so many customers, thousands of customers this advice over the years, over the decades that one thing you need to make sure that you do is that you were on a regular basis. Clean your entry. Matt, uh, the Internet at once, it gets full even by you not using it, it can get full. Think of your entry, Matt as like a wastebasket into your home and once that wastebaskets gets full, then it starts spilling over. So as people come into your home, they can actually pick up dirt off of your intranet and walk into your house. Now, it may not be that the person’s shoes are dirty. It may not be that you’ve made the entry matt dirty at all, but the matt is outside and so every time it rains, every time the wind blows, every time the sun goes up and the sun goes down, it is the environment outside of your home is getting dust and dirt onto your intro, Matt, and it may be getting kind of ground down in there just by the inclement weather around Carpet Stretching Tulsa
[02:39] Tulsa is in our fiber. And one of the things that’s important before you have to get to the point that your carpets need to be stretched is that you need to make sure that you’re limiting the amount of dirt that’s coming in from the outside. Your instrument can do that for you, but if it’s been sitting outside for six months in the snow and the rain and the wind, and then the dust, it actually become a source of dirt so people could come up to your house with clean shoes on, rub their feet on your dirty entry bat, pick up dirt onto their shoes, and then walk that dirt into your house. So on a regular basis, I recommend most people do it every six months, three to six months or so. Just get out there and take a garden hose and your intro, Matt, and just rinse it out and then let it set out on a sunny day on the driveway.
[03:20] Let it dry out. Um, whenever you do rent them out, it’s best to lay them flat and let the sun do the drawing. If you lay it over something, nine times out of 10 when the fat, the interim that dries it dries and kind of an a frame shape, it dries to the shape of the thing that you laid it over. And so now it’s bent and try to lay it in front of your entry and it’s just, it will never leave completely flat. Back Down in your intro, Matt again, uh, as well we’re on the topic of mats. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. One of the things we’ve seen is that people like to use decorative intro match instead of functional injury match. Uh, they did a study and found that if you do a, a pretty, uh, a pretty welcome, something with words on it, maybe a family crest or you do something that’s decorative or nice as your instrument, um, that the majority of people as they come up to ring your doorbell, will actually ring your doorbell from behind the Internet.
[04:12] They won’t stand on it because they don’t want to mess up or a muck up your pretty entry. Madec becomes more like a picture than it is a functional use. And most instruments are a little bit too small if it’s only a a one and a half by two foot or two foot by three foot instrument. Most people will stand either at the instrument and when you open the door, they’ll take one step onto the internet and one step over is the only one foot ever hits the instrument because it’s a little bit small and so you’ve got. You can have a two inch your mount system, one on the outside, this decorative and one the inside that’s functional. Or you can have the one on the outside be functional, want to insight, be decorative, but you want to have two separate ones or one big one so that you can get people to be able to step both feet on it.
[04:55] You need to be at least two and a half to three feet deep and three or four feet wide so that people will have to. They can’t jump over the mat. I can’t step over the mat. They’ll actually have to step onto the mat. And if you do something that looks a little bit more youtube utilitarian, than people are more inclined to rub their feet and get the dirt off onto it. If it’s decorative, then people are more inclined to just step over it because they don’t want to wipe their muddy feet onto your pretty thing and be the one that messes up the design that’s on their carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. We are complete carpet and the just paint a general attention. Even if you could just grab the vacuum and you do your regular vacuum.

Carpet Stretching Tulsa And there’ll be a huge. You’ll see a huge reduction in dirt all throughout. If you think about almost every major retail space that you go to, they actually take and make into the entire injury the of double doors and have a big black rug that goes across the whole thing and it’s very rough course. It’s meant to knock all the dirt off your shoes and it’s a big area. It’s about a five, seven foot area so that there’s no doubt even just even if you don’t want to rub the dirt off your feet, you have to because you’re just have to walk across it. Four or five, six steps going across this mat to knock all that dirt off your shoe so it doesn’t enter into the store and they cleaned that thing every single day to make sure that the, the, the, the, the traps, the door that, that wastebaskets holds the dirt before it ever gets into this store because they don’t want that dirt running throughout the whole store.
