Another line of defense: Unfortunately, as great of a job as the previous tip is for keeping your carpet cleaner than ever, it's a little optimistic to think that nobody will wear shoes in the house. Whether it's that pesky neighborhood kid, an unruly in-law, or your husband, it's inevitable. Fortunately, there are measures that can be taken to combat the unavoidable. Doormats at all entrances to your house kindly remind people to take their shoes off or at least wipe their feet before entering. When I go over to someone's house, my mind is often consumed by not committing some other egregious faux pas and the shoe thing slips my mind. Yet often when I see that mat I suddenly remember and kick them off -just wish I had remembered to wash my feet. Also, high traffic areas will often succumb to wear and tear, like my grass example, even if everyone who enters the house is gliding around on slippers. Runners on high traffic areas keep the carpet cleaner underneath and protect the carpet from moisture. Protectors to keep your carpet cleaner are a good idea as well for food areas. Food and drink accidents are the nuclear bombs of the carpet world and just one mishap can ruin a rug because for some stains, there is simply not enough carpet cleaner in the world. It might seem obvious, but clean it up the best you can as soon as possible and just try to minimize the damage.
There are many uses of carpet tiles in every day use. Here are just some: Children's bedrooms are ideal for tiles. Why not create your own patterns with different coloured tiles? But the main benefit is because the tiles are durable, they'll last much longer than standard carpeting and they'll be more able to withstand the abuse of little feet and hands. Ideal for rented accommodation... If you lease an apartment, chances are that some of the flooring has a lot to be desired. Or, alternatively, you may be a landlord who's renting out a property. Either way, modular tiles are a great, budget-wise solution that fit into practically any room. Vinyl backed tiles will last longer than a normal carpet and as mentioned already, they can save on costly replacements. If a carpet tile gets worn, soiled or permanently damaged, you can simply replace it or swap it with one from a less visible area.
Many people have started replacing area rugs with carpet tiles. The advantage to this is, although area rugs will protect a floor in high traffic areas and beautify a room, it can be slippery. The edges turn up on occasion and can cause a slip. With carpet-tiles, you can create the same effect and get the same use of an area rug that will remain into place without an edge curling up. Carpet-tiles come in an assortment of shapes and sizes. They also are available in a variety of thickness, just like a carpet wood. You can get thick to thin, depending on your need. Another asset to carpet-tiles is the come in an overwhelming number of colors and patterns. This makes it easy to tie into any decor in your room, matching any color scheme you'd like to create.
Once a spill or stain occurs, time is of the essence. There is a certain amount of time that passes before the stain begins to settle in and become nearly impossible to remove. It is up to you to ensure that you get the carpet cleaned as fast as you can. The many chemicals that are on the market can damage a few types of rugs if they are used on them. Make sure that you read the labels in an attempt to determine if you can use the chemical or not. While bleaching a light-colored rug seems like a good idea, the truth of the matter is that this is in fact a bad idea and can actually ruin a carpet with bleached splotches on the rug. Once this happens, it is a trip to the carpet store to replace the damaged item and install new carpet.
As any skilled interior decorator will repeat time and time again, the general color of any newly installed carpet must match the rest of the room. Because of this, it is generally best to install the carpet first and then purchase furniture in the aftermath. Because basements are often a bit dank and dark, however, people may want to choose a carpet color that is more uplifting. Red, orange, and yellow should all work, although these colors may have to be tempered a bit with lighter walls and ceilings. Those families who prefer Earth tones might choose blue, green, or brown.
