Carpet Spot Removal

Anyone who has experience with carpet knows the types

of accidents that can happen. Carpet is very common

with most houses these days, making the risk for

accidents and spills higher than ever. No matter

what the spill may be, mud, blood, or milk - there

are ways to clean everything.

At your local department store or grocery store,

there are several products that you can pick up that

will work great. The only problem with these products

is the fact that they are normally very vague with

how you should use them.

The first thing you should know is that if you

have a red stain on your carpet, you shouldn't try

to get this out yourself, but instead leave it to

a pro. There are certain procedures and very

effective methods that your local carpet cleaning

company can do to save you from ruining your carpet.

Keep in mind that red is the toughest stain to get

out. A professional carpet cleaner is the way to

go, as he is properly trained and equipped to

handle them.

For everything else, there is always an effective

and cheap way to clean spots on both your carpet

and the upholstery. If you are only buying the

products that work for you, then you aren't paying

much attention to the label or the technique in

getting the stains out.

The first thing to do is go to your local Auto

Zone or auto parts store and pick up the auto

upholstery and carpet cleaner in the can. Tuff

Stuff is one of the best you can get. Almost

all cleaners that come in a can are foaming

cleaners, which will make your work a lot easier.

The foam in these canned cleaners will penetrate

the fibers upon contact and as it foams, it will

release and suspend the stains and soils. You

may need to lightly scrub the areas with a

towel or soft bristled brush.

To help you clean the spots, the tips below may

come in handy:

1. You should only use white rags or

towels when you clean carpet and upholstery to

reduce the risk of ruining colors or color


2. You should use foaming cleaners to

clean your entire upholstery, even though it may

state to dry clean only.

3. You should always test your product

of choice first on a hidden area to save yourself

heartache and embarrassment in case things don't

turn out the way you hope.

4. If you need the help of a professional,

you shouldn't hesitate to contact one.

As long as you don't have a red stain in the

carpet, you shouldn't have any problems getting

it out. Stains and spots are a carpet's worst

enemy, which is why you should always get them

out as soon as you can - to prevent things from

getting any worse.

Picking Out A Carpet

(category: Carpet, Word count: 457)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Carpets are available in many different styles and

colors, although when you shop for your carpet, you

should try to buy the best quality carpet you can

get for the money. Even if you happen to be on a

very strict budget, you shouldn't skimp on your

carpeting or your carpet pad, as quality products

will tend to last longer, wear better, and even save

you quite a bit of money in the long run.

Almost all modern carpets are made from either nylon,

polyester, or olefin. Nylon is the strongest type

of material and also the most widely used. Even

though nylon will never wear down to the treads, it

can fade and get very scrubby in appearance. Buying

the proper padding for your carpet and having it

treated with a stain resistant treatment will help

to make it last a lot longer.

When you pick out a carpet, you need to know how

to tell if carpet is good enough quality. One easy

way to test is by looking at the density of the

carpet. This means the thickness and closeness of

the pile, or each specific strand of fiber.

The closer the fibers are to each other, the better

the overall quality will be. You should stick your

fingers into the rub or bend it to see if you can

feel or see the mesh. The less you feel or see,

the better the quality of the carpet. Another

factor with quality carpet is the twist level or

the number of twists in 1 inch length of fiber - as

the more twists you see, the better.

The density of the pile will affect how the carpet

will wear, while the cut of the pile will affect

how the carpet looks. A plush cut carpet looks like

a field of velvet with even color and it's great

for a formal look.

The saxony cut carpet has irregular cuts of pile,

and provides a great everyday look. Frieze is a

very nubby twisted pile, with a less formal look

although the wear it offers is very good.

When you buy carpet, you shouldn't ignore the

carpet pad. Along with going for the best quality

of carpet you can afford, you should also buy the

best quality of pad as well. The padding will cut

down on noise, and also help to act as a cushion

so it's very important - almost as important as

the carpet.

By taking your time and knowing what to look for,

you won't have any problems picking out your

next carpet. Quality and durability are the keys

to great carpet and pad, which is why you don't

want to rush this process.

Kitchen Carpet Spill

(category: Carpet, Word count: 469)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

A spill on the kitchen carpet can be anything from

a child's cup falling off the table to muddy footprints

around the room. Properly dealing with the kitchen

spill is what seperates the professionals from everyone


With a little bit of common knowledge, many of the

spills that occur can be cleaned up and corrected fast

and easily. Knowing how to react to spills in the

kitchen are what makes things easier than ever.

The first thing to do, is use a bit of common sense.

Its important for you to take very quick action and

be smart about the first steps you take in cleaning

up your kitchen carpet spill. To put it in other

terms - don't let the spill sit.

The longer the spill or product sits on your carpet,

the deeper in it will go. A larger spill that has

time to seep into the carpet and into the padding

and reaches the floor boards is one type of spill

that will need extensive cleaning. Therefore, you'll

need to move quickly and effectively.

You can take different steps to remove spills from

your kitchen carpet. One thing that remains the

same throughout every spill you encounter is that

you shouldn't rub them. Most often, rubbing the

spill will rub them into the fibers of the carpet.

This will make them less likely to come off. Instead

of rubbing, you should consider blotting. Blotting

puts small amounts of pressure on the stain to

allow the cloth or paper towels to soak it up. This

doesn't work the stain deeper into the carpet.

As far as getting the spill out of the carpet, you

can use several methods. First, you should try

and remove as much debris from the floor as possible,

wiping as much as you can up. Then, there are

several routes that you can take.

If you own a carpet cleaner, this will be your

best option. Last, there are several products on

the market that you can use. This will help when

it comes to difficult spills. Unless you have

them on hand, waiting isn't an option. Spills in

the kitchen needs to be handled in a quick and

timely manner.

Since the kitchen spill happens in one of the most

used rooms of the home, you'll need to make sure

that you do a great job in cleaning it up. Because

spills can happen frequently, it is important

that you do a complete cleaning of the carpet on

a regular basis.

Even though kitchen carpet spills are nearly

impossible to prevent, you can protect yourself and

your carpet by knowing what to do. If you keep

your carpet clean, you'll have no problems cleaning

up spills as they occur.

Right Carpet For Your Home

(category: Carpet, Word count: 592)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

If you walk into any carpeting store, you'll find

yourself amazed at all of the choices that are there

for you to pick from. You'll find textured plush

carpets, saxony carpets, berber carpets, and even

commercial grade carpets. There are carpets that

can be installed wall to wall, and carpets that can

be cut to size with bound edges and carpet squares.

Your first consideration when purchasing a new carpet

should not be color, even though it is important.

Your first consideration should be how much traffic

you are going to have on the carpet. If you plan

to put carpet in the bedroom, then it won't have as

much traffic as carpet in the living room.

Stain resistance will also be important. This is

something to think about with any carpet, especially

carpet that is going to be used in a dining room

or play room area where there will be a stready

stream of food or possibilities for spills.

You'll also want to inquire about the rating of the

carpet as well. Indoor carpeting is normally rated

on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest

rating. Carpets with a 5 rating are considered the

best for heavy traffic areas. Rating of 4 are

considered outstanding and recommended for heavy

traffic areas of your home.

Ratings of 2.5 to 4 would provide normal durability

for your home. Carpets that rate 2.5 or lower

should only be used with light traffic areas, such

as bedrooms. Choosing carpet based on the type of

traffic it will receive can help you save a lot

of money down the road, although you should buy

carpet suited to your needs and requirements.

The highest quality of carpet you can buy is carpet

made of wool. Wool carpets are very expensive,

although you'll reap the benefits over years of

use as wool will easily out perform any man

made carpet. Two of the best benefits of wool

carpet include its natural soil resistance and

it's ability to retain appearance, meaning it

won't crush or wear down like other carpets.

The downside to wool carpet, is the fact that it

is out of reach for most of us. If you can't

afford to have woold carpet installed throughout

your entire house, then you should instead have

it installed in the room that receives the highest

amount of traffic.

There are several different man made carpets that

you can choose from as well. If you have a high

traffic area, then nylon would be an ideal choice

due to the durability. Nylon is stain resistant

as well, and repels mildew.

Carpets made of olefin is also a great choice for

high traffic areas as it is very strong and easy

to clean. Polyester is another good carpet as

it is easy to clean and repels water based stains.

Polyester is known for the look and feel of wool,

although it is much less expensive.

The color consideration is also important. Light

colored carpets create an effect of a larger

space, although they do tend to show stains more

easily. Dark carpets on the other hand tend to

absorb light, giving a room what many know as

the "cozy feeling".

When you find a carpet that appeals to you, you

should ask to take a piece of it home. Look at

it during natural daylight and at night under

an artificial light to see if the color changes

at all.

Carpet Cleaning

(category: Carpet, Word count: 627)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Although vacuum cleaning can remove a majority of the

dry soil, it is also necessary to clean your carpet

on a frequent basis to remove the oily, sticky soil

that builds up in the pile as a result of odors and

dirt that is tracked in from outside.

If you can clean the carpet before it becomes too

bad, the cleaning chore will be easier to do and a

lot more successful. There is a myth that is totally

false, which states that cleaning the carpet before

it is necessary will get it dirtier faster. The

carpet with the typical household should be cleaned

every 12 - 18 months depending on the number of

people living there and the amount of traffic that

walks on the carpet.

The choice of the right vacuum is important as

well. There are some vacuums that will leave

residues behind, which will promote re-soiling and

basically defeat the whole purpose of household


Professional carpet cleaners

It is in your best interest to use professional

cleaners simply because their experience will enable

them to do a much better job than you can do yourself.

The equipment they use has more extraction power

than the units available to you, and the carpet

will dry faster as well. They know the cleaning

agents to use, and they know the differences in

carpet construction and fibers.

Doing it yourself

If you have made the decision to rent a steam

cleaning machine and do the job yourself, you

should check on several systems before you make a

selection. Most of the units available for rent

don't clean well enough and may end up damaging

your carpet. Therefore, you should always consider

the following:

- Several rental companies offer cleaning

equipment that is similar to what the professionals

use. The equipment should have enough vacuum

power to allow the carpet to dry within 12 hours

of cleaning. You should always avoid rental units

found in retail and grocery stores that don't

have the power to extract the cleaning solution

from the carpet fast enough, as it can actually

damage the carpet due to over wetting.

- Make sure you avoid over wetting the

carpet. Any prolonged dampness can lead to mildew

growth and bacteria in the carpet, or cause a

seperation of the backing. A wet carpet that stays

this way for longer than 24 hours can develop

problems. You can control this by using proper

equipment and the right training.

- Carpets that have stain resistant

treatments have to be cleaned with products that

are formulated for this very purpose, or the stain

resistance will be impaired and the warranty will

be voided. Never use cleaning or spotting solutions

that contain bleaches as they can mess up the color

of the carpet.

- Never use any silicone based treatments

on the carpet.

- You can help to reduce the drying time

by using several fans to move the air around the

carpet. You can use a dehumidifier as well, as

it will pull moisture from the air.

Hot water extraction

The hot water extraction system is highly recommended,

as it considered to be one of the best methods

for carpet cleaning. Also known as steam cleaning,

the process consists of spraying a mixture of water

and detergent into the pile and recovering the

water and soil with a powerful vacuum that puts it

into a holding tank. You can use a truck mounted

unit or a portable self contained unit as well. This

method is easily one of the best, and is ideal for

soiled carpets or pet stains that you have yet to

get out of the fibers.

Dry Foam Carpet Cleaning

(category: Carpet, Word count: 493)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

The dry foam procedure is mostly rather than dry as

the name infers, although the content of moisture

is so low that it can actually be referred to as dry

foam (90% air - 10% liquid). The dry foam machine

is equipped with a pressure tank, which you will

pour a solution of water and shampoo into.

A compressor will work to convert the solution into

foam which is then dispensed all over the carpet

using a revolving cylindrical brush. The brush will

work to comb the foam through the piles of the

carpet so that each individual fiber of the carpet

is cleaned.

To achieve success, you must make sure that the

bubbles being produced are of uniformed size so the

foam can complete the cleaning process before it

is dispersed. Once it has dried, the carpet is

then thoroughly vacuumed to remove the dried crystals

of dirt that have been left behind.

Below, are the steps to the dry foam procedure:

1. First of all, vacuum the carpet and

remove all the stains that you possibly can.

2. Mix the dry foam solution according to

the directions of the manufacturer.

3. Shampoo the carpet then once it has dried,

vacuum the carpet.

4. Depending on the type of carpet you

have, groom the pile to speed the drying process.

5. Complete the work by using a furniture

leg pad or block to eliminate furniture stains

or rust.


The process of dry foam cleaning is capable of

covering a lot of area in a very short amount of

time. There isn't really any danger involved in

saturating the carpet simply because the moisture

content is low. This will also help you to

minimize the problems that are commonly associated

with over wetting.


The dry foam method is capable of removing average

levels of soil. There is however a possibility of

excessive residue and soil build up if the machine

you are using has inadequate extraction capabilities.

Dry foam is the ideal method of choice if you have

older carpet if you want to get your carpet as clean

as possible. You can rent a machine at your local

department or carpet store if you don't think you'll

use it enough to buy it. They don't cost that

much to rent, which is great for those who just

want to give it a shot and see what happens.

Dry foam carpet cleaning isn't that hard to do,

as you'll be fine even if you have no experience

with these types of machines. The above information

will help you greatly, and if you follow it, you

shouldn't have any problems. Dry foam can make a

carpet look spectacular, as long as you follow

the manufacturers directions on mixing the dry

foam solution. Once you've finished cleaning your

carpet with dry foam, you'll probably find yourself

falling in love with the results.

Carpet Tiles

(category: Carpet, Word count: 504)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Anytime it involves your floors, you shouldn't limit

yourself to just carpet, but try the newer carpet

tiles instead. Carpet tiles are available in an

array of designs and a great choice of materials

as well. Bordered, geometric, contemporary, or

bamboo - will give your floors a complete makeover

and a great look as well.

When you go out to buy carpet tiles, you'll need

to think about where you plan to install them.

The tiles will vary in density as well as thickness.

Carpet tiles with more thickness have a cushion

so that it's soft on the surface, making them ideal

for homes. They will also provide a degree of

thermal insulation as well. The thinner types of

tiles are best for offices, gyms, and other high

traffic areas. All carpet tiles are easy to

maintain and will last you for a long time.

The tiles will come in a variety of materials and

patterns. If you choose, you can make your home

a greenhouse by using bamboo carpet tiles, or you

can choose terracotta carpet tiles that will

give your interior an earthly feel.

You may just want to liven things up a bit or

play down your floor, depending on the look you

are going for. Carpet tiles that are made from

foam, rubber, linoleum, and vinyl are best for

children's rooms, office spaces, or other high

traffic areas. The cost for the tiles will

depend on their thickness and density, which

means that the prices can range from 1$ per square

foot up to 40$ per square foot.

Tiles for carpet will offer you several advantages

when you compare them to wall to wall carpets.

They are easy to install and easy to transport,

as you can install them without having to move

any furniture! They are very durable as well,

and will last longer than most types of carpet

even when they are used in high traffic areas.

You can also unleash your creative side as well

with carpet tiles. You can mix and match

different tiles, or use a color for the border

and even create a distinctive look using

various patterns. Unlike wall to wall carpet,

you don't need any professional help in case

of tear, wear, or staining. If they become

torn or stained, just replace that tile with a

new one.

There are carpet tiles available to fit each

and every taste, even budget and furnishings style

as well. As they are less expensive, they will

offer you the chance to experiment with your

interior. Pretty much the same with carpets,

the installation of tiles is very important.

They must be installed on hard surfaces, such as

stone, cement, or ceramic tile. The surface has

to be smooth and clean, so the adhesives will

last and your floor will have a well finished

look. The carpet tiles will normally have cushion

or padding already installed, which will reduce

the cost and extend the life of the carpet.

How Carpet Is Made

(category: Carpet, Word count: 478)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

The carpet that is made today is a mix of old world

craftsmanship and a touch of 21st century innovation.

By combining the two, carpet is able to become the

household feature that we all know and love - and

get tired of cleaning.

Carpet can be manufactured in one of two ways;

weaving or tufting. Carpets that are woven are

primarily wool and are very durable, and very

expensive as well. The woven carpet types can be

hand produced, as it has been for centuries, or by

machine. No matter what method is chosen, the same

procedures are followed.

The yarn for the carpet is woven through or around

vertical fibers known as warps, and then locked

into place with horizontal strands known as wefts.

The woven carpets can utilize a variety of colors

as well to create intricate patterns in the

highest quality of carpets.

Tufting machines can also be utilized as well, as

they use computers to determine the patterns, styles,

construction, and density. No longer does someone

have to do everything by hand or mentally, as the

tufting machines will take all of the guesswork out

and make things easy on the operator.

Once the fibers have been locked into place, the

carpet is dyed using a variety of methods that

will create patterns or effects. For cut pile

carpets, the final stage is stretched,

cutting the pile loops. This is an important

stage, as it will determine the softness and

feel of the carpet.

The carpet will also receive a secondary stretch

backing as well to give it stability and allow

it to be stretched during the installation

process. Most of the carpets of this day and

age will receive stain protection as well, which

happens during the manufacturing phase.

The way that a carpet is made will greatly affect

how the carpet is installed. In the past, the

creation of carpet was a very complicated

process, as there were no computers or technology

to do most of the work. Back then, it was all

done by hand. The carpets were great, although

there wasn't any colors or textures that we

have to choose from today.

The carpet manufacturers of today have a lot of

technology at their disposal, which makes life

at the plants easy. Operators can watch and

operate machines to do a lot of the work, which

makes their job a lot easier.

The continuous fibers found with carpet are heat

set and twisted at the mill to give a tightly

twisted product that is commonly found with

frieze carpets. This type of yarn is less

bulky although it will hold its shape for a long

period of time, which is great for those who

don't like to replace their carpet every couple

of years.

Reasons To Buy Berber Carpet

(category: Carpet, Word count: 626)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Everyone hears about Berber carpet, and just how great

it can be. The carpet was named after a hand made

bulky wool that was textured and used by a tribe in

North Africa, the Berber tribe. The Berber carpet

that is used even today follows the same tradition

of the tribe by using flecked bulky yarns to create

a beautiful carpet.

Below, you'll find several reasons why you should

choice Berber carpet over all others.

The carpet is unique

The flecked looped yarns that are used to make Berber

carpets provide a very unique yet stylish carpet

that makes Berber easily to identify.

Choice in loop sizes

There are several loop sizes with Berber carpets,

so there is always going to be a size for any room

or decoration, from the large knobby loops to the

small and tight loops. There are several choices

as well, that include cut and loop designs, multiple

level loops, and even level loops.

Hypo allergenic

Berber is the ideal choice for anyone who has

allergis or younger children. The carpet is made

from wool so it's non toxic and non allergenic, and

it will stop bacterial growth on the spot.

Very comfortable

The manufacturing process that created the loops

of wool have millions of air pockets in them so

the carpet has a nice and cushioned feel when you

walk across it. It also offers an insulation factor

due to the weaving which helps to regulate the

temperature of the room as well.


Berber carpet is one of the most durable types and

also one of the easiest to clean. The stains are

easily lifted from the carpet and it takes a lot

of miles on the carpet before it will even begin to

show any signs of wear.

Berber is also well known for longevity, as it

always seems to look like it was installed yesterday.

It rarely ever shows footprints, and it doesn't

even show the lines from vacuuming. The only

thing you have to watch out for is snagging, as

you don't want to snag the loops and damage the



This is actually a mystery, as Berber is pure wool

and still cheaper than nylon, olefin, or any other

type of man made carpet, even though it outlasts

the rest and maintains a newer look over a longer

period of time. Berber is one of the most

affordable choices you can make and it still looks

richer than any other available choices.

Choices of colors

The color choices with Berber carpet are varied and

include earthen or neutral colors, dark colors,

and pastel colors as well. There are plenty of

colors to choose from as well as patterns. Berber

carpet offers more choices than any other carpet


Hiding the sub floor

Because the density of Berber carpet is so thick,

you can easily hide anything wrong in the sub

floor without having to spend a lot of money having

the sub floor repaired of replaced. This helps

to make Berber carpet very cost efficient in

older homes that need to have the carpet redone.

Grade variety

Just like with other carpets, you can choose from

a variety of grades that will determine just how

plush the carpet is. Berber is available in

several different grades, even a product grade

that is designed to go on over top of concrete.

Besides the fact that Berber is one of the most

economical carpets to buy, it is also one of the

most economical to install. The carpet is easy

to lay, which will save you time and effort, making

it a truly excellent choice when it comes to

carpet for your home.
