Carpet Maintenance Advice

No matter how careful you are with your carpet, the normal dirt and spills associated with daily life will eventually begin to show. However, you’ll be glad to know that carpet grime doesn’t have to be permanent. With regular carpet maintenance and a bit of experience when it comes to stain and odor removal, it’s usually possible to restore your carpet to its clean, beautiful state.

 

 

Routine Maintenance

 

Vacuuming

Did you know that dirt actually erodes the fibers on your carpet? Regular vacuuming helps remove this dirt and helps keep your carpet looking fresh and clean. It’s typically recommended that you vacuum your carpet at least once per week.

 

Steam Cleaning

Despite regular vacuuming, dirt will still eventually become embedded in your carpet. This is why it’s important to invest in a professional deep cleaning every few years.

 

If you have the time and patience, it’s possible to rent a steam cleaner and do your own deep cleaning. If you decide to do this, be sure to follow the instructions carefully in order to make sure that you’re not over-wetting your carpet. Steam cleaning your carpet without properly drying it afterward can lead to mildew growth, which is difficult to treat.

 

Otherwise, if you don’t wish to do your own carpet steam cleaning, there are many professional services available that will come to your home or business and clean your carpet. In line with the caution above, make sure you’re hiring someone who will take his or her time to make sure that they’re not leaving any soap residue or excess moisture on your carpet.

 

 

Stain Removal

 

The principal rule of carpet stain removal is to blot, not to rub. This will help prevent you from working the stain farther into the carpet. In a similar vein, make sure to scrape any spills off the carpet, rather than trying to “scoop” them up in a towel.

 

Typically, simply using plain water is enough to remove stains. However, if this doesn’t work, try these inexpensive stain removers:

 

  • Club Soda
  • Dish Detergent
  • Hydrogen Peroxide

 

 

Odor Removal

Has your carpet been smelling “off” lately? If you know that there was a spill or other accident on the carpet, try simply cleaning the offending substance off the carpet to see if you can remove the odor as well. If there were no recent spills but your carpet smells musty, it’s a good idea to see whether you can lift the carpet to look for mildew.

 

If you’ve determined the cause of your carpet’s odor but can’t get rid of the smell, try these odor-removing techniques:

 

Baking Soda

One of the easiest and least expensive ways to treat carpet odor is simply to sprinkle a liberal amount of baking soda on the area. Brush the baking soda into the carpet fibers, let it rest for a few hours – or overnight – and then vacuum it off.

 

Vinegar

Another inexpensive solution is to spray vinegar onto the carpet. Leave the vinegar on the carpet for several minutes, then blot it dry. Once you’ve blotted with vinegar, blot the area with water before drying the carpet with a towel.

 

Steam Cleaning

If baking soda and vinegar don’t work, you can also try steam-cleaning your carpet. If the odor is localized, you may wish to do a simple spot treatment in order to cut down on costs.

 

 

With careful maintenance, a typical carpet can last up to 10 years. However, beyond this point, many carpets begin to show signs of wear and tear that normal maintenance can’t repair.

Carpet Cutting Machine Benefits – How Can A Retailer or Distributor Improve Their Business With An Accu-Cut

Have you ever bought a product and then wondered how you ever did without it? Well, that’s the response we generally get when flooring retailers, distributors, and artificial wholesalers acquire the carpet cutting machines we sell. Let’s explore why your business would benefit from having a durable well-built carpet cutting machine.

 

Saves Time and Effort

Saving time is a major factor in why our machines are so useful to businesses. Being able to save time in day-to-day business, begins to add up significantly after awhile. Just being able to get through orders in less time, frees up labor and inevitably improves other aspects of your business needing attention.

The effort put into cutting carpet by hand or with a machine not well-designed, takes a toll on employees and makes for unhappy workers in general. The cuts aren’t as straight, the materials are harder to keep clean, and backs start to hurt in the laborious process. Your company could attract and retain better workers by having a state of the art cutting machine. They can work just as hard overall, but their efforts will be better directed, less laborious, and safer.

 

More Efficient and Clean

Having an Accu-Cut carpet cutting machine will expand a company’s ability to: reduce over-cutting, better inspect materials, measure rolls easier, cut sample strips, split rolls in half, keep better inventory, cut carpet over base, and more. Your ability when it comes to managing the cutting of the rolls will increase and expand, giving your business more options for better customer service and more efficient storage in general.

Accu-Cut machines are a small enough size to fit in a smaller building: our smallest machine measures 5′ 6” x 14′ 8”. All the carpet remains can be rolled back up, and the cutting itself is so precise it doesn’t create as much debris. So, this smaller space containing this useful machine will stay clean, while cuts will be more precise.

 

Accu-Cut Carpet Cutting Machines Are Durable and Last

We have customers who are still using the machines they purchased 10-15 years ago. This is because we only use quality products meant to last, and we construct the machines so they’ll need minimal maintenance. Customers are continually surprised how simple and effective our machines are, and this simplicity with smart design is why they last so long.

 

Buy From a Trusted Company Offering a Long-Term Commitment

Accu-Cut is a family owned business from Florida, and we’ve always put a premium on customer satisfaction. Because we believe in our products, we commit ourselves to a long-term commitment with our customers.

This means if there’s a problem with one of our machines, we’ll have someone there to fix it anywhere in America. We have 4 service technicians on the road traveling the country, to service and provide preventative maintenance: to keep your carpet cleaning machine running well.

In addition to this, we deliver most of our machines ourselves in our own trucks. This allows us to give free training to our customers when we deliver their machines. By setting the machines up, then helping our customers get on the right track in person, their ability to operate and maintain their machines is greatly enhanced.

 

Summary

Accu-Cut has 5 different sized carpet cutting machines to choose from, as well as a roll feed table. Within this selection, clients can find the right fitting machine for their needs. Our clients have been large and small in the past, but we offer the same respectful service to all.

Many times, flooring retailers, distributors, and other clients just didn’t know there was such a product available, until they found us. The difference it makes in day-to-day business is significant, and the products we create are always on the cutting-edge of technology.

Although Accu-Cut’s machines are sophisticated enough to offer many options, they’re still simple enough for safe day-to-day operations.

Carpet Advantages

Being that we are a carpet cutting machine manufacturer we of course like to let people know about the great attributes of carpet.

Hardwood floors have edged carpets out in popularity, as the former are preferred and can increase the resale value of a house. Home owners, though, need to be reminded of the excellent advantages of carpet, depending on where they live and the ages of people in the household.

Below are some clear benefits of carpets over wood floors.

One. Warmth

As anyone whose feet have ever hit the floor on a cold winter morning (or night!) knows, wood floors can be cold. Carpeted floors are much warmer. They are more inviting to step on, so they make getting out of bed in the morning easier. Plus, a wood floor in the winter necessitates walking around with slippers or socks on your feet at all times. With carpet, people in the house don’t have to this.

Two. Safety.

The wearing of slippers or socks on wood floors for warmth brings up the possibility that the home’s residents can easily slip on wood floors while wearing them. In fact, wood floors are easier to slip on than carpet no matter what is on your feet. Plus, if a family member or friend does fall, nothing cushions the blow.

This is a particular consideration if a household includes toddlers, who will likely fall at some point in their nascent walking career, or older people, who can sustain serious injuries in a fall. If a home’s family members are in either of these age groups, carpet is clearly a better choice.

Three. Comfort.

Perhaps friends or family members in a home like to sprawl happily on the floor while talking or watching TV. This can be done on a wood floor, of course, but it’s a lot harder on the bones, especially elbows (if they’re used for propping up a head), backs, and heads. You need additional purchases, like large pillows, to make wood floors comfortable for sitting and or reclining.

Carpets, though, are already comfortable enough to lie down on. They are simply more comfortable than wood.

Four. Quiet

Wood floors carry the noise of someone walking. In fact, they will greatly amplify the sound of someone walking in shoes with heels. That is why many multi-unit dwellings, like apartment buildings or condos, ban or limit the use of wood floors and mandate carpeting.

Carpet, on the other hand, muffles sounds. Therefore, if you have a large household where people sleep at different times, or live with a night owl, carpet offers the advantage of quiet no matter how many people are walking around.

Five. Easier Replacement in Case of Damage

Sometimes, water or other liquid is spilled on a floor. If it’s an accident, it’s likely the water will be mopped up right away. At times, however, a homeowner may not notice standing water. A roof may leak, or sprinkler water come through an open window that dries before the homeowner notices.

Unattended water can seriously damage and warp a wood floor. It sometimes means that part or all of the floor in a given room has to be replaced. This is expensive and time-consuming.

Water does not damage a carpet in the same way. Water damage is very minimal. While a carpet can become stained from certain types of spills, that too is easy to clean.

Six. Less Expensive

Carpet is, on average, quite a bit less expensive than carpet, at one-third to one-half the price. Therefore, if a homeowner wants to spend more on other areas of the home than he or she does on flooring, or are just starting out in a first home, the cost of carpet can be a huge advantage.

Seven. Increased Home Decor Options

If you like bright accents of color in your home, carpets have distinct advantages. They can be purchased in many different colors! The mood of a room can be lifted with a bright red carpet. Serenity can be enhanced by a rich forest green or a deep cobalt blue.

In sum, carpets have many advantages that wood floors don’t, including considerations of comfort, cost, and color.

The top 9 carpet terms

Top 9 Carpet Terms That You Need to Know

You have your ideal carpet in mind, but do you know how to describe what you’re looking for? Many of the terms that are used to describe carpets are rarely used in everyday language, meaning that it can be difficult to find the words express what you want in a carpet. Fortunately, the concepts are straightforward – once you know some basic carpet terms, you’ll know just how to find what you’re looking for.

We’ve put together a few carpet terms that can be used to help you better describe what you’re looking for in your next floor covering:

1. Backing
A carpet’s backing can be found on the bottom side of the carpet. Typically constructed of woven plastic, the backing supports the top yarn, or fiber, section of the carpet. This prevents the fiber from being pulled out of the carpet. Backing is typically attached to the carpet using a strong latex adhesive.

2. Density
Density refers to how close the individual carpet fibers are to one another. Higher quality carpets tend to have denser fibers. This makes the carpet feel thicker underfoot.

3. Fiber
Carpets can be made out of a variety of different fibers, which each have different properties. Most modern carpets are constructed from synthetic fibers such as nylon, polyester, and polypropylene. Nylon, in particular, is a popular fiber choice due to its soft texture, durability, and stain-resistant properties. In addition to synthetic fibers, it’s also possible to find carpets made from natural materials such as cotton or wool.

4. Pile
The soft, top layer of a carpet is called the pile. This is the part of the carpet that consists of individual yarn strands that have typically been twisted into a particular style. A carpet’s pile height refers to the distance between the top of a carpet and the backing. In other words, longer strands of yarn will result in a carpet with a higher pile.

5. Style
Carpets come in numerous styles and patterns. All carpets begin as loop piles, which consist of loops of yarn that vary in height depending on the carpet style. Berber carpet, which is highly durable and often used in offices, is an example of a loop pile carpet with extremely short loops. If the carpet loops are cut, the result is a cut pile carpet. These are often used in residential settings.

6. Tuft
A tuft is an individual strand of yarn in a carpet. Tufts are created when a threaded needle pierces the carpet backing, creating a loop of yarn. This loop can then be either cut, creating one tuft, or left intact, creating two tufts.

7. Twist
A carpet’s twist level refers to the number of twists per inch in a strand of carpet. Carpets with low twist levels are likely to unravel, whereas a high twist level can increase a carpet’s durability. This makes twist level an important factor in determining carpet quality. Fortunately, many carpets are heat-treated in order to prevent carpet strands from becoming unwound.

8. Underlay
Although an underlay is not technically part of the carpet, it’s an important component of carpet installation. The underlay is a layer of padding placed underneath a carpet in order to provide insulation and cushioning, as well as to increase the life of the carpet. Underlays can be made from a number of materials including foam, latex, and rubber.

9. Width
Although carpet can be manufactured in a variety of widths, the most common width is 12 feet. This means that it is often necessary to keep a carpet’s width in mind when calculating how much carpet to purchase for a given floor.

Technology and the cloud

I Really Don’t Know Clouds at All: Technology and Small Business

Home based business owners and work at home business owners often wonder how they’ll generate money to buy the necessary components of business. Software for security, sharing, backup and dozens of other things necessary to continuing business is expensive. Not every small and home business owner starts off with enough money to cover all that. When they hear about “the cloud”, they look out the window to see if it’s going to rain. Then they reach for the CDRs to back up their computers. What these business owners don’t realize is that the cloud is the best thing to happen to them since laptops and tablets. Let’s take a look at why these business owners can’t afford not to use the cloud.
What It Is
The cloud is the intersection between technology and business. What used to be handled by separate (and expensive) services is now offered from one place for a price that scales to what the home based business owner actually needs:
• The cloud offers services that are self-serve, only pay for what you use and can be increased with business volume or scaled down with the same
• It offers software-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service and infrastructure-as-a-service, meaning no more ordering software for your business, no more needing your own server and ever more storage space, and no more needing an ever growing IT section to take care of all that
• All this is offered in three styles: the public cloud is owned by a company for the work at home business person. It offers the services peculiar to that company with no need to buy or install specific software or the hardware to run it
• The second style is private, which is used by networking companies. It provides services to the many instead of the few like with public clouds. You’ll find this with networking companies like multi-level marketing, where the many can operate without thinking about it.
• The last style is the hybrid clouds, which home based and work at home business owners might use. Let’s say the company they work for needs the resources of a private cloud using company. This service offers both companies across the board services of private and public clouds.
What It Means for the Home Based Business Owner
What’s the first thing home based and work at home business owners fear? Loss of their information is the answer. Off-site storage is offered for free in most cases, but if the owner needs more storage, it’s going to cost them. Thumb drives and CDRs are basically a thing of the past if business owners want to keep track of business matters for various reasons like taxes, for example.
Another major fear is someone hacking into their system and stealing their customers’ information. With the scandals attached to the Target, Neiman Marcus and other big companies’ hacking problems, this is a very real fear. Now, if the home based business is still small enough to run from the kitchen table, then the fear isn’t real just yet. However, anything can and will happen. Being prepared isn’t just a Girl Scout credo.
The next concern for home business owners is access. When they’re on the road for a delivery or providing a service, they often need to access their records or something else from their parent company. The cloud provides access from any device anywhere at any time. No need to lose a customer or client if their questions can’t be answered. This leads us to storage.
Business owners obviously can’t lug around a filing cabinet, so cloud storage is the answer to that particular problem. It is infinite, costs less than business owners fear and can be accessed, again, anytime anywhere. When your customer or client has a question, you can reach for it instantly.
And How Much is This Going to Cost Me?
Now that business owners understand the specifics of cloud computing, they need to analyze the costs. The cloud can be accessed from anywhere from Amazon to Microsoft and Google to a host of other providers. Homes based and work at home business owners will pay between $20 clean up to $200 in some cases. Keep in mind you can shop around for the specific services you need, and that prices are scaled according to what you need when you need it. Amazon appears to be leading the pack and has for years now.
So this is why small to medium business or SMB owners can’t afford not to use the cloud. Of course, if you’re planning on establishing a flooring business in which you’ll be laying flooring, contact us and we’ll help out with cutting machines.

How Much Is Technology Really Changing Businesses?

Is Technology Changing Businesses

Ever since the Industrial Revolution, drastic leaps in technology always change the way we live in more ways than we initially anticipate. The introduction of the telephone not only let us communicate across longer distances but impacted the way people relate to one another socially on a much larger scale. We no longer had to see one another in person, which eliminated things like body language from the equation and gave people an additional veil behind which they can hide. This is the trend and ideally, we will be prepared for these changes instead of playing catch up. The same ideas apply to technology and business today.

Technology is intended to make our lives easier, but like most things, it is a double-edged sword. Now that technology is omnipresent and constantly changing, how to we reconcile older business practices with new developments? Should we even care about the values of the past or focus more on anticipating those of the future? IT departments did not exist 30 years ago as they do now. Below are 3 major ways that technology has impacted business.

  1. Staying Connected: It is much easier to stay in touch with people due to the rise of the social media and mobile technology, and most business have taken full advantage of this. Meetings and conference calls can take place almost anywhere because of the internet. In turn, this results in less down time for employees and higher expectations of commitment in certain industries. People can now work on vacation and even have a face-to-face meeting via video chat. With the 24 hour news cycle, information now comes in real-time and many companies (especially those that are client based) are expected to reply with equal promptness regardless of where they are located or what time it may be.
  2. Business Models: For many years, business models remained the same. This is no longer the case. Many once steady industries now go through regular turmoil over the years trying to adjust. It no longer makes sense to resist adaptation, but instead anticipate it. Technology cycles have become so short that it leaves businesses little time to make decisions and plan. This leads many businesses to panic and spend less time experimenting and innovating. Models must change and be open to collaboration simultaneously in response to and anticipation of technology changes. Unfortunately this can be a difficult balance to strike.
  3. Customer Base: The ideal customer base for most businesses used to be older individuals who had accumulated some level of wealth. That has now changed given the rise of younger entrepreneurs and the growth of youth culture. Businesses, and even the economy as a whole, are identifying Millennials as the driving force behind business and their practices. This group will soon represent approximately 50% of the American workforce with the most money to spend, the fewest financial responsibilities, and a mindset of living in the present. This is the group responsible for the rise of the digital age as the did not know a world before the internet. They are the reason that technology is so integrated in business as well as the rest of the world as they live in the overlap between knowledge base and target consumer. The writing seemed to be on the wall, but any smart business will take this as a lesson on how to anticipate the market trends and the change in customer bases.

With 25 years in operation, Accu-cut has seen these changes and successfully adjusted to all of them. That is how we can offer you the best prices on carpet-cutting machines no matter where you are located around the world. Contact us today to find out more about our services and what we have to offer.

 

8 Great Carpet Choices For Your Home

8 Great Carpet Choices For Your Home

Choosing the perfect carpet for your home can be a difficult task. You want something that looks nice, feels comfortable,and also stands up to the everyday traffic that moves through your home. You might also have children and pets, which can lead to spills and stains. There is a surprising variety of wall-to-wall carpet options out there, and each one has different characteristics that may or may not work for your home. Check out the following options before you choose your next carpet:

1. Shag

Shag carpet=happy feet. This soft, plush carpet is very comfortable and the thick texture hides flaws, making it ideal for families with kids. Now, you might hear the term “shag carpet” and think of some fairly undesirable, gaudy colors from the1970s-have no fear, shag carpet has received quite a trendy update through the years. Now available in modern, neutral, trendy colors, this deep-pile carpet has once again become mainstream for homeowners everywhere.

2. Solid Cut Pile

Solid cut pile is perhaps the most popular choice for wall-to-wall carpeting. Cut pile carpeting has a very flat look, as the loops are cut to create a very short, dense carpet that is also soft and cushy. This carpet is a great choice for children and pets, as there are no loops that get caught on animal’s claws or children’s toys.

3. Cut and Loop

Cut and loop carpet is also quite popular. This carpet allows homeowners to make their flooring a bit more unique, as it is available in a variety of patterns. As the name implies, cut and loop carpet does have loops that are intact, making it less durable than cut and pile. Homeowners with pets may want to steer clear of cut and loop carpet as claws can get caught in loops and create large snags which can then get caught in vacuum brushes, leading to a big problem.

4. Modular Tiles

Modular carpet tiles are extremely durable and available in just about any color and pattern you can imagine. These are a fantastic choice for high traffic homes with lots of busy kids and pets. The tiles are super simple to install, making it a great DIY project for people looking to save on installation fees. The tiles can be removed from the floor and washed in case of a spill or built-up dirt, and simply placed back down on the floor when dry. The drawback? Since modular tiles do not have any padding between the floor and the carpet, they do not provide a very cushy surface.

5. Hemp and Sisal

If you are looking for a unique option for your floors, hemp and sisal are a great alternative to traditional carpeting. The natural fibers create a very “beachyfeel inside a home, and can be used wall-to-wall in entryways, hallways, and bedrooms. In addition to looking great, hemp and sisal also has the added bonus of giving your feet a great massage! Keep in mind that the fibers stain very easily, so this would not be ideal for homes with animals.

6. Geometric Patterns

Geometric patterned carpets are a beautiful, decorative option for those looking for something other than solid color wall-to-wall. Large scale geometric patterns are best for large rooms-using these in a small room can result in a loss of part of the pattern, decreasing the overall effect. For smaller rooms, choose a small-scale pattern that repeats frequently. Just as a large-scale pattern won’t work in a small room, a small-scale pattern will make a large room feel extremely busy and distracting. Be sure to choose the right type of pattern for your room size.

7. Tone-on-Tone

Quite different from the geometric pattern carpet, tone-on-tone creates a pattern using contrast in textures rather than color. Tone-on-tone carpet is weaved in a way to create a subtle pattern that works well in neutral colors. This durable carpet is lovely in any room, regardless of size.

8. Woven Hide

Woven Hide carpet is handsome and quite expensive. This carpet has a masculine, artistic style, and is best used in rustic spaces. Woven hide is durable, but should be used in dry areas of the home.

There are 8 great carpet choices for almost any type of home. With so many choices, everyone can find the perfect carpet that works best for their space.
