Carpet Stretching Tulsa | Episode 300
00:00 This is episode 300 and so we’re going to talk about just a bunch of random stuff because they’re going to celebrate our 300th episode or we’re just going to cover all of the blast, the blast of topics that we’ve covered Carpet Stretching Tulsa since 1998. We are complete carpet. Just going to try to go through all the different things, vacuums. You need to make sure you clean your filters on your vacuum. Let’s do it on a regular basis, not just the collection of dust in the container, but to Juniata hit all of the areas where the air is getting pumped out. There’s a filter there too, and if you can smell your vacuum, that means your filter is dirty. You got to clean it. A what type of vacuum should you get? Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. My advice is to pick the one that has the features you want.
00:44 If you’re in 100 to $300 vacuum just to remember that there are all disposable, that they’re only going to last. You buy three to five years. Do you want a more longer lasting vacuum and got to spend more money on it? The more money you spend on the vacuum, the more expensive than motor is. The longer it will last. A backroom do not wear a do not just quit working. Carpet Stretching Tulsa They slowly wear down. So the speed that the vacuum suck, that reduces overtime. You could have a five year old vacuum that now only sucks it like 50 or 40, 30 percent of what it originally started that because the engine inside of it, the motor inside of it is only got $100 vacuum problem. I got a five to 10, $15 motor and you got a $500 vacuum. You’re going to have a $50 motor.
01:24 So it’s just, it’s proportional, proportional to the expense of the vacuum to get over into patching. Carpet Searching Tulsa since 1998 patches, you’ve got something that’s in the carpet. They just cannot be cleaned out or fixed. Let’s say you’ve dropped an iron or you’ve had a log pop out of the fireplace. Maybe you dropped an entire bucket of paint. Uh, you have, um, he had a bottle of hair dye still directly onto the carpet. You’ve had a dog that wants to get out from a corner and got trapped behind the door and try to dig its way out underneath the cart purpose. All these different areas was just completely destroyed or shredded the carpet. We can cut that area out, patch it into a closet or take some existing carpet and try to cover up those areas and get it through so we can make a patch where it almost looks like it’s never been done.
02:09 Like there was no damage ever there. Now this does have its limitations that you’ve got carpet that’s extremely worn down everywhere and we patch it with a piece of carpet that looks fresh and good. There’s going to be a visual difference between, uh, the carpet that is new and the carpet is old, but for the most part we can take those and bring them back, put them back together for you. A one thing that we also can do is seem repair. Say you’ve got a seam that has been broken apart and had to be taken up maybe for period or something like that. We can take those themes and put it back together. Carpet Stretching Tulsa since 1998. Another thing that you want to expect as our carpet cleaning abilities, we get in there and we do a pre spray over all the carpet. It’s important to do a press brake and just soaking your dishes and dawn, you want to get that dirt, debris back into solution so that you can rinse it out of the carpet.
02:56 We use a hot water extraction rents instead of just chemical cleaning. Um, it’s important I believe, to be able to thoroughly rinse out using hot water. There’s lots of things that can only be broken down with hot water. Water really is the universal solvent and as much as you want to, a good chemical cleaning, trying to dry, clean out your carpets. That product never truly gets all the way out of your carpet. Whereas with a steam cleaning, we bought our service. We put all of our products down, burst, and then we go through and just power rents, all of that stuff out so that it’s fresh and clean. There’s no residue of chemical left in the carpet because we actually thoroughly rinsed it out using 30 or 40 gallons of water to just thoroughly, um, remove all of the dirt and contaminants, but also all of the soap that we use to try to break up that dirt and contaminants.
03:38 A heat up your water makes a big difference. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. We’ve talked many times about the heat of the water and how important it is to have high temperature water. Try to get butter off a plate with cold water. It just, it just not going to happen. Try to get butter off a plate using cold water and dawn, you might be able to break it up a little bit and was eventually kind of get through, but all you switch that handle over to the hot side and let that warm hot water roll across that plate in that butter will melt and dissolve right out of their sugars. A butters, oils, greases, all of those will break down. I’m only with hot water, cold water. It just makes it almost impossible to break some of those things down without using some type of a solvent which is really harsh on the carpet.
04:16 It is important that you vacuum on a regular basis because dust is the universal sandpaper of your house. You want to get all of those things across your carpeted areas and it will slowly wear down all those fibers and causes it to matt break down to where it looks just not as fluffy and nice and clean as it did when you first got your carpets. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998 and other thing that we’ve talked about on many occasions is your tile cleaning. What be able to get all those deep grout lines cleaned out for you. As you go in, you mop an area, you’re going to get some of the soap that dries in because it’s mostly will just mop with a soapy solution that mop with a water solution but never thoroughly rinse out the floor and they’re really just mopping around, diluting the self.
04:56 That’s already there, and the first time, not too big a deal. Second time, say you left one percent, so second time, now you’ve got two percent soap. Now third time you’ve got three percent and eventually you get a buildup of soap throughout your grout lines. So that two, three, five, six years later, the grout lines just look dark and gray. And no matter how much you mop them, they just don’t come up. So you need us to come in there, get those a grout lines back to square one so you can then have a nice fresh looking tile again and be able to stay on top of it. We are complete carpet, carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. And one of the things that was lasting I’m talking about is stretching your card. You got the unsightly wrinkles. Maybe you need to get, uh, get the carpets to be able to be sold.
05:35 Maybe it’s a trip hazard and something that might catch up your feet or the inner way or be unsightly moving furniture around. You’ve just accumulated these large wrinkles throughout the house that somebody looks at it. Oh, I got to replace the carpet. Really, you could just stretch it out and make it get some good life out of your carpet. Again, I’ve stretched many people’s carpets and they’ve gotten another five to 10 years of life out of that carpet because now it’s tight flat again and it’s working well, so save the money of a whole new replacement by just spending a few hundred dollars to stretch it out or if you’re trying to sell your home, make sure you have carpet. They’re flat so that you can get the best value out of your home. You’re not gonna increase the price of your home, but you will decrease it quite a bit by people coming in and believing those carpets need to be replaced only and so they’re gonna come in real low ball price because they expect to have to invest money in new carpet. Make those carpets look like they could move right in on them and that way if they wanted to upgrade them, they could, but they can just use the carpets that are already there and not have to bring down the price of that beautiful property.
