We are complete carpet. Give us a call today at nine. One eight, four, nine, four, seven, zero nine three. And we can get you on your way to getting healthy. Clean carpets. carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998 has allowed us to expand our services into carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, tile cleaning, carpet repair. Um, and today we want to talk about the importance of having good tools. Um, you can get, um, you don’t always need to spend the absolute most amount for something, but you do want it to get the best quality of something. Um, it is important when you’re out there looking, you don’t want to overspend, but you definitely can spend a ton of extra time and money by underspending or under.
00:52 I’m not getting a good high quality piece of equipment that you want to use to get the best results. You want to be able to make sure that you’re always using the best equipment and one of the things that we found makes a huge difference is the type of one that you use and the type of glide that you use. On that one. It’s important to have a balanced Wanda and by a balanced blonde, I mean that each one is designed to work with a different type of machine. If I was going to use a small rug doctor, I would need to use a fairly small ones typically with just one jet and have a small, maybe 10 inch head at the most, maybe eight, eight to nine inch head. The small single jet that maybe only has a one or two, a one or two, maybe a three on the tip so that it doesn’t produce, shoot out too much water so it has the right ratio, the right balance between the amount of water that it can suck up and the amount of water that they can put down.
01:44 If you as a big four jet won with a 14 inch head on it and try to connect it to a shop vac, it would. carpet stretching Tulsa I rubbed Dr. it wouldn’t be able to suck up. The other one is so big it wouldn’t have the suction power and it’d be putting down way too much water and it would just flood the whole area. On the same token, you want to use the appropriate size one for furniture, cleaning, carpet, stretching, Tulsa since 1998. We have done a lot of furniture cleaning over the years and one of the things that people are always surprised by is the expense or the cost of cleaning furniture and the main reason for this is that you have to use an extremely small wand to be able to maximize the amount of suction, but also minimize the amount of water that gets to rest on that front piece of furniture.
02:24 This is important because furnitures, fabric is very thin and it’s a. I always tell people that it’s akin to trying to clean a then undershirt while you’re wearing it without getting you wet, so I can’t get you wet, but I get to clean your shirt while you’re still worried it and that’s about what furniture cleaning is like. You’ve got a fabric stretched over a large flat cushion and that cushion is extremely absorbent. It’s like a giant sponge and if you get the moisture down into that sponge, it’s then going to take forever for it to dry or to get back out and it’s going to sour inside there and so you want to make sure that you’re making light passes, quick passes with lots of suction and a very little amount of water and so you have to go over and over and over an area trying to make sure you get it clean and rinsed out without ever getting the cushion inside wet and so there you want to make sure you’ve got that.
03:11 That one is supposed to be balanced very, very high. Such very, very low to the amount of moisture side carpet stretching Tulsa. If you’ve got a large, giant truck mount, you’ll be able to use a much larger one up to six jet won, that’s up to 14 to 16 inches wide and be able to give a very big long wide path, but even then you want to make sure that you’re using it properly. Like if I turned that one up to a thousand or 2000 psi, it’s going to put out much more water than it can be able to suck up. So you want to be able to balance the pressure off of your machine. Typically, most machines should be running around 400, maybe 500 pounds of pressure so that it’s putting out as much water as it’s able to suck back up. If you don’t suck up as much water as you put down, you’re going to eventually soak in the backend of the carpet and possibly the padding below.
03:58 Taking days to dry carpet stretching Tulsa Since 1998, we are complete carpet. Uh, one of the things that’s important also when you’re making these decisions and you’re picking a good quality water, good quality. I’m a tool that you want to use a, for example, like us, a stretcher, a knee kicker, a good iron will be, make the difference because I’m trying to get through an effectively melt the glue will make it a good scene. You need an iron that’s going to get hot quickly and stay hot, uh, so that it doesn’t have to try to keep professionally heating back up. That way it’ll give an even smooth melt to the glue and it will be able to penetrate into the back, into the carpet and making a good flat, uh, um, well locked a theme that won’t come apart over time. How many times I’ve come into areas I’ve seen a, even a freshly doesn’t seem that good.
04:50 You’ll just pull right apart because the iron was not a good quality iron. And so the heat was not consistent all the way across the bottom plate and the areas did completely melt and other areas didn’t melt at all. Or maybe it’s just the skill of the technician, but it is important that you always make sure that you have the best tools and equipment. So that one, you can do the job the quickest possible, the most efficient way, but two, that way you can do the most thorough way. Uh, have always heard it say that the shortcut is always the longest way to do something. Carpet starting in Tulsa since 1998. I’ve seen this over and over and over. If you don’t take care of something right the first time, that just means you’re going to have to, you know, you do a shortcut but a little patch and do something that’s not the full complete way to try to get by.
05:34 Eventually you’re gonna have to go back and fix it and if you have to fix something that’s already been fixed once, that takes typically a lot longer than it was to just have fixed it right the first time. carpet stretching Tulsa And that’s one of the thing that we always try to do a complete carpet is that we want to come out there and get you taken care of the right way the first time.
