Operating as usual
[04/05/13] When vacuuming an Oriental rug, always run the vacuum with the rug's nap. Doing the opposite (going against the nap) will result in pushing dirt down into the rug. Also, it is recommended you not vacuum the fringe of a rug.
[04/02/13] Before storing a rug, it is recommended you have it cleaned and sprayed with a moth repellent. Then, roll the rug into a tight cylinder against the lay of the nap. When wrapping, use a breathable material such as cloth.
[03/30/13] Some types of flooring can benefit from special cleaning equipment. For instance, shampooers work wonders on carpeting, while steamers can buff and shine wood laminate flooring.
[03/27/13] Berber loop pile carpets give a natural handcrafted appearance in any room in the home. Not only does this carpet add warmth and texture to the decor, but its tight loop design helps hide footprints and vacuum marks as well.
[03/24/13] Do you have a room that gets a lot of exposure to natural light? The sun can fade carpet colors over time, so consider fade resistant carpets in extra-sunny rooms of the house.
[03/21/13] Pre-finished hardwood flooring can save time and money. While self-finished hardwood flooring costs more labor and supplies, homeowners have more options when it comes to appearance.
[03/18/13] The carpet sweeper, which used revolving brushes to force dust and dirt into the housing of the sweeper, was invented in 1876 by Melville Bissell.
[03/15/13] When cleaning a spill on your Oriental rug, it is important to address the spill before it dries. Use paper towels to blot up as much of the spill as possible. Then, use a mild clothing detergent to blot up any staining that might have occurred.
[03/12/13] Keep in mind that if the finish on your hardwood floors has been worn for some time, the wood may have been damaged and will need to be repaired. Look for stains, burns, cuts, gouges, holes, cracks, and/or warped boards.
[03/09/13] When vacuuming an Oriental rug, consider avoiding vacuums that use motorized brushes. These mechanisms can damage the threads in a rug and accelerate wear and tear.
[03/06/13] When cleaning a rug, it is recommended that you do not shake it. This is because shaking can cause damage to threads and knots in older rugs.
[03/03/13] A common mistake when purchasing carpet padding is to select a variety that is either too soft or too thick. These types of pads will bottom out when exposed to foot traffic, allowing greater impact to the carpet and shortening its life.
[02/28/13] Oriental rugs are commonly made from wool and/or silk, although sometimes the silk is simply used as a highlight accent. Another material used in Oriental rugs is Allo, or Himalayan Nettle plant.
[02/25/13] Did you know it's possible to find carpeting made from recycled water bottles? If finding environmentally friendly flooring is important to you, ask us about the different options available.
[02/22/13] For thousands of years, rug weavers used dyes made from natural substances such as roots to add color to their Oriental rugs. Around the mid twentieth century, synthetic dyes became prominent in the rug creation process.
[02/19/13] Are you looking for the best carpet to buy for a very small room of your house? Choosing a light shade could be the perfect way to make the room appear larger than it really is.
[02/16/13] When picking out a wood for your floors, it's a good idea to do some research. Tropical woods not native to the United States have a tendency to be sold under misleading names. For example, Tasmanian oak and Australian heritage oak aren't oak species at all; they're eucalyptus.
[02/13/13] If you always thought the carpet padding was strictly to make it softer to walk on, think again. The pad you put under the carpet provides support and strength to the carpet, like a foundation.
[02/10/13] There are many factors to consider before you purchase flooring for your home. Talk to a flooring expert to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of the most popular types of flooring.
[02/07/13] Unfortunately, spills happen in even the most careful homes. While no carpet will be totally stain proof, buying a carpet treated to be stain resistant can buy you some time to clean up the spill.
[02/04/13] The type of furniture you own will determine what thickness to purchase. Ask the salesperson how thick the flooring should be based on what is in the room you are installing the hardwood in. Choosing a less thick flooring to cut costs may indirectly cause damages to the floor that could have been prevented.
[02/01/13] Did you know that bamboo flooring is considered a hardwood floor even though bamboo is a grass and not a timber? Bamboo flooring is a fast, renewable crop and costs 25 to 50 percent less than hardwood floors, making it a popular choice for flooring.
[01/29/13] Installation of hardwood flooring should be in places that have low moisture. It may not be good idea to install hardwood floors in a bathroom due to the high moisture content.
[01/26/13] Molding is important; it adds the icing on the cake, as it provides a distinguished marker between the wall and the floor. When picking out floor installation materials, match with the floor that you chose such as choosing stained molding or prefinished molding.
[01/23/13] If you or any member of your family is extremely sensitive to air quality issues, consider carpets made with natural fibers. This can cut down on that new carpet chemical smell.
[01/20/13] Some hardwood floors will have a penetrating seal rather than a polyurethane surface finish. Here, the finish will look either satin or matte, and you will be able to feel the wood grain when you run your hand across the surface.
[01/17/13] Understand if you want hardwood flooring or laminate flooring. Know that with a higher dollar investment in hardwood flooring, the return will be greater as you will not need to worry about reinstalling frequently due to damages. Hardwood flooring will always last longer than laminate flooring and may save on cost by installing just once as opposed to multiple installations over the course of several years.
[01/14/13] Today, you can find Oriental rugs made from either natural or synthetic dyes. Natural dyes are prized for their subtle variegation in color and typically cost around 30 percent more than those made with synthetic dyes.
[01/11/13] Have couch legs stomped down portions of your Oriental rug? To remove, simply spray lightly with water and brush the area with a soft brush.
[01/08/13] Laminate, the least expensive wood flooring available, is actually paper applied to a wood-chip base. Consumers must beware of products that pass themselves as genuine wood.
[01/05/13] The oldest Oriental rug ever found dates back to 500 B.C. and was excavated in the Altai Mountains of Siberia. Its preservation was made possible thanks to Siberian ice.
[01/02/13] In terms of primary fibers, when it comes to Oriental rugs, wool is the most resilient, comfortable, and durable of all the materials commonly used. Other fibers like silk are often incorporated to add variations in color, texture, and design.
[12/30/12] When having your floors done, make sure to protect the furniture and items in the surrounding rooms. You'd be surprised how far dust can travel!
[12/27/12] If you're planning to sell or rent your home in the near future, you may wish to stick with carpeting in neutral shades. Picking bold or unusual carpet could make your home more difficult to sell.
[12/24/12] Hardwood is the longest-lasting, most sustainable flooring option available to homeowners. It also is growing in popularity and can add a significantly large value to the home.
