Uh, one of the things that I believe is important carpet stretching Tulsa in our fiber. And one thing that, uh, that really helps to elongate the life of your area rugs or your carpet in general or any of the other flooring surfaces for that matter, is that you can use a rugs as a protection device. Um, if you ever had moved into a home, you will notice that the carpet, the areas that you first by the carpet, first, by the home, all of the carpet that you see as you walk in, there’s been furniture that laid throughout and everywhere that, that furniture sat, the carpet looks almost pristine because the carpet has been protected by the furniture sitting over top of it.

01:12 Uh, if now, if you look at the areas where the furniture has not been a rogues or not, those areas walk a considerable amount of lore and have worn down, worn out faster. It’s because each time you step on it, the fibers rub against each other. And if there’s dust or dirt, if you went back one of our previous podcasts, we’ve always talked about how that dust in your house is the universal sandpaper that every time anything rubs against that dust, it rubs against the other surface. Really wearing it out quickly. But if you took a hallway with carpet and put a runner down, it, that runner will wear out over time. But the carpet underneath it that has now pushed her, squished flat, would, uh, would not take the brunt of that were so anywhere that you know, this is going to have a high traffic area carpet stretching Tulsa.

01:59 A great example of this would be a underneath a desk where you have your chair that you put your full body weight into it and roll it around while you’re sitting on it. Uh, that area. It needs to have a desk of Matt, something that removes the friction off of the carpet and the glossier one. It’s easier to roll your chair around the two. You want to be able to have something that’s not just grinding into your carpet. Carpet stretching tells us it was 1998. We are complete carpet and we’ve seen this many times where people forget or don’t think to use a rug or a hard mat or something to protect their carpet. Now, this can also be used to protect your wood floors too, especially around the dining room table. I see this many times where somebody will have a very nice wood floors and that’ll have a dining room table.

02:44 And because people sit and scooch and move around and then push their chair out, push their chair in, and then sitting in the chair, they push with their feet, just shoved the chair backwards. There. Ended up being all kinds of scratches and marks on the floor around the dining room table. If the chairs it just directly on the wood, uh, same thing in Olivia’s room. What do you have? Wood floors. You’ve got a rocking chair or a couch that people go and they kind of jump onto the couch. So these are body weight hits the couch, the couch moves, slides, leaves, couches. Um, so it’s good to have some type of a rug or at a minimum you put little felt pads or little pieces of carpet on the bottom of your furniture so that when it slides, it slides against something soft and nylon nut, something hard and abrasive.

03:25 carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998, we are complete carpet. And um, another way that you also can help to maintain where and most all nice rugs, we’ll have this on their care tag, but a lot of people forget about it. I’m the same way that we also forget to turn our mattress every six months to a year, so you don’t sleep in the same spot on the mattress all the time, uh, but you also should turn your rugs, all rugs do not get even wear and this because we typically have a walk path through the house. Um, if they’re coming into your front door, then the first part of your rug is going to get hit and walked on more often than the part that’s 10 or 15 feet in the room. This is twofold. One carpet stretching Tulsa says 98, eight. I’ve seen this so many times where your first part is where it’s going to knock the dirt off your shoe even though the rest could get where and that dust and dirt is a as gritty and grimy and creates the sandpaper like texture in the carpet.

04:26 So each time you step on it, it’s just, it’s destroying itself. So you need to rotate that rug. One hundred 80 degrees. Now you’re stepping first on the opposite corner and allowing it to even out the wear across the rug. So one end, one side, this doesn’t get damaged while the other side’s okay. Uh, uh, hallway rubbed me the same way. You can switch it around a rug. Sitting in front of my couch is probably the one I see it the most on because we’ll have a rug that sits right in front of the couch. And of course where you sit for their couch gets the almost the most were in your house because you’re sitting there with your feet on the ground watching them over your stuff and your feet kind of move around. And you could spend hours sitting there watching movies while your feet shifts back and forth.

05:05 Cross your feet over, uncross them, Kinda wiggle your heel, tap your foot tapping appeal. And so if you turn that rug every six months, then that wear pattern will move around and evenly distributed across the rug and give you twice the amount of life at the rug could have lasted otherwise.
