Carpet / April 19, 2018 / Kaye Cooper
Density Matters. Out of all of the factors that determine quality in a carpet, density has to be among the most important. The denser a carpet is, the more resilient and durable it's going to be. This makes all kinds of sense and doesn't really need a lot of explanation. When the tufts that make up carpeting are packed closely together, it is considered to be dense; when they are spaced far apart, the carpeting is considered to be sparser. When you are looking at a sample, bend it back. If the backing is easy to see, it's not dense carpeting. You should also press into the carpeting; if you can feel the backing with ease, you're not holding very dense carpeting.
Fast Intervention when Liquid is Spilled: If you spill liquids accidentally on the carpet, such as wine, milk, coffee, the first thing to do is to remove the excess liquid as soon as possible. Then, you will have to use cold water before detergent. This way, the liquid is cleaned even if the material of the carpet is not affected. Don't rub. Press napkins and toilet paper against the carpet, as by rubbing, you will only fix the stains more in the carpet. Even if you apply these techniques and you are able to keep the carpets clean, the intervention of a specialized company is required at least once a year. This way, you will be able to determine if your carpets are still resistant, and to find out more about the latest and most effective cleaning products that you can use.
