[00:51] Nothing you can do is just limit the source of dirt and he got pets. Make sure that you dust them off, clean them off, wipe them down when they come in from outside. If you’ve got kids, make sure that they wipe off the bottom of those shoes. I was wearing your shoes. Inside is not the problem because rubber soled shoes on nylon carpet. Really does it do much damage your carpet. What damages are carpet is people that walk in from outside carrying sand and grit, dirt rocks in their shoes. That then gets wiped off on the carpet.

Another place is to put entry. You’ve got your entry, Matt. So it gives somebody a place to wipe the shoes off. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. I’m seeing as many times. Uh, the other part that you also could do is to put a, some type of carpeting over the areas that get the most wear and tear. I’m, let’s say A. I’m in front of a rocking chair. We have your feet down in here professionally pushing back a little bit to rock your foot is rubbing on the carpet more than all the rest of the carpets. So you know where that area out quicker. Uh, let’s say, uh, at a desk where you’ve got a, you’re sitting in a chair with wheels and every time you move those wheels roll and grinding the carpet is your full body weight so that, that’d be a good place.

[02:29] But like a desk mat, something that would cover that up in front of the chair, you can put a little, I’m a foot mat or a, a injury, Matt there to kind of protect that carpet anywhere that a younger girls or, or women that do their makeup as a good place to put some type of a three by four rug or of carpet down so that the area around there doesn’t to get grounded with makeup that eventually cannot be done now because you can get most make about, um, but when you get layer upon layer of makeup, it starts to, in there, it will start to impregnate her. It really start to get forced down into the fiber and become almost impossible to get out at a certain point. You get too much. But buildup around cat boxes. I want to get one of those big maps of exercise equipment.

[03:13] Do you want to have a mat underneath those so that they don’t wear the carpet out? Um, if you’ve got a small or narrow hallway and an older home having a runner down the hallway, we’ll save that carpet. Got carpet will wear out before the. All the rest of the house does he have three or four bedrooms all connected to one small hallway and then everyone in the house has to walk down that small, narrow hallway every time they want to go to anywhere words that bathroom over any of the bedrooms that you have, the highest concentration of foot traffic along that hallway. Other areas is your a part of your couch. A lot of times people will put just a, a rubdown that covers in front of the couch, out underneath the coffee table. That way, that heavy traffic areas, people sit there watching a movie and they crossed the feed.

[03:55] They somebodies got a bouncy foot that just keeps moving all the time and rubbing against the carpet.

But so far we’re just covering the things that you can do to try to maintain the health and wellbeing of your carpet. Uh, one thing that also like to point out here is when you have rugs and these areas, they are going to get a certain type of wear pattern because they’re in a certain position. So let’s say that it’s a rug that faces your entry area and it goes across to your dining area ceo walk on, typically one side of that rug.

[04:37] Um, as you walk across the room. So every six months to a year you want to turn the rug, 180 degrees that way, the other side of the rug and they get to where it’s equalizing the were sort of like you do with your mattress. When you flip your mattress or turn your mattress, you want to turn the rug so that the other half of the rug can also take some of the wear and the rug will wear evenly all the way across. I’ve seen so many times people will put a rug down and four or five years later, half of the rug is destroyed, the other half the road looks brand new. Um, and they ended up just having to toss the rug because it’s been so badly damaged. On one side, you could get twice the life of the rug if you just rotate the rug and let the other side get some of other.
