Carpet LOVE continued from page 1
saxony and velvet plush all respond to traffic in different ways . The quality and density of the cushion is another factor that determines how well a carpet performs in traffic areas .
Even the way the pile yarns are twisted and how tightly packed they are in the carpet backing makes a difference in durability and cleanability .
An experienced cleaner will assess the condition of your carpet , asking questions such as , “ How old is the carpet ?”, “ How was it cleaned in the past , and how often ?”, “ Was protector applied during the last cleaning ?”, “ How old are the spots , spills and stains , and have you tried anything to clean them ?”
With all of these variables , it ’ s not an exact science . BUT there are some things we know about carpet , fibers , soil and stains that give us a clue as to what we can anticipate from the cleaning process . The most important consideration is the type of fiber .
Wool carpet has excellent resilience , so those crushed traffic areas and furniture indentations have a good chance of coming out . Wool is more easily stained by proteins than other fibers , so some foods , pet urine and other protein sources like blood will be difficult to remove .
Olefin carpets don ’ t have the resiliency of wool , so high traffic areas tend to pack down and lose that fluffy texture over time . Olefin has excellent stain-resistance and color-fastness .
Stain-resist nylon has excellent resilience and good stain and soil repellency , so carpets made with nylon tend to be the best overall performers . However , depending on how the fiber was dyed , Nylon may be bleached by some household chemicals or sunlight .
Polyester fibers have an affinity for oily soils , so food or petroleum grease spots will be more difficult to remove . But Polyester , like Olefin , is very resistant to stains and bleaching .
The bottom line is that how the carpet looks after cleaning will depend on some factors that are out of our control . But with an experienced cleaner you can be assured of the best results possible for your carpet .
