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



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.



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.
