What is berber carpeting?

The real truthBerber is not a type or style of carpet. It refers to the little specs of another color or colors, called berber fleck

Berber can be either, cut pile, or loop pile construction.

Mostly found in loop pile construction, and over the years, loop pile carpets have been referred to as "berber" carpets, when in fact they my not be berber at all, but a solid color loop pile.

What distinguishes Berber carpet from other loop carpets is that Berber has different sized loops. There is no such thing as a cut pile Berber. All Berber carpets are loop pile, and the loops are different sizes. The yarn used to make them has different colors, so the carpet has specks of different colors. Most Berbers have the loops engineered so that they form a pattern. There will be an area that has big loops, and then an area with small loops. Since Berber carpets are not cut, but looped, they don't show wear as much as a cut pile carpet.

If you look at a piece of carpet, an ordinary piece, you will notice that the tufts come out of the backing and are all cut to the same length. Berber carpets don't have tufts. It is made by looping the carpet material back into the carpet backing so they there are no exposed ends of carpet fibers. This makes Berbers more resistant to wear and they show less traffic patterns. Their downside is that they do not offer the "plushiness" that regular cut pile carpet offers.

This style of carpet is named "Berber" because it was originally developed by the Berbers, in North Africa.

Cleaning the entire room, steam cleaning the carpeting, vacuuming everything, and washing all textiles are ways to eliminate bedbugs from carpets. Bedbugs will be most tenaciously resistant in terms of the proliferation of their tiny eggs so that everything must be scoured and vacuumed in order to find the easier-to-find adults and uncover the difficult-to-find eggs and newborns.

Which carpet is better tufted or woven?

One is not universally better than the other, just different. Both could be junk and either could be tough as nails.

Woven will almost always be more expensive & gives a lot more flexibility of design in patterns.

Today almost all woven is used in commercial jobs like casinos, tufted is used in both residential & commercial.

How do you remove white stains on your carpet from flood water?

If the flood water was from an actual flood, check with Red Cross, you may need to remove the carpeting. Some bacteria cannot be cleaned out of a carpet after a flood. If the flood was from internal pipes, it is probably an alkaline based stain. www.fabriclink.com/carpet/carpetstain.html can be a helpful site.

How do you remove urine out of the floor under carpet padding?

Enzyme cleaners for pet accidents are available in most stores selling cleaning supplies. An enzyme cleaner is the most economical and effective method for removing urine and feces stains. Most come in spray bottles, but enzyme cleaner is not intended to simply be sprayed on the damaged area unless it is a hard surface. First blot up any liquid urine and then drench the area with cleaner if it is a porous surface like carpet. Leave the area saturated with cleaner for about 15 minutes before blotting up any residue, then let the area air dry. It may be necessary to treat the are several times if urine has dried or penetrated deeply. A fan may be used to dry carpet faster.


I used an All natural enzymatic cleaner It neutralizes and removes stains and odors for good.

First try freezing it with ice-cubes in a bag then trying to scrape as much off as possible with a blunt knife.

Try turps or dry-cleaning fluid and sponge and blot (test first).

Cleaners with citrus based oils also help.

I have used a combination of the above to remove a large black melted crayon stain from cream carpet - even if I had to work at it for a while!

What is the best way to clean carpets?

We bought a old used rug doctor hose version for $100 on the internet,you know the kind you rented back in the day but we put a high pressure pump in it and upgraded the vacuum motor as well and now it's better than a professional cleaner. We clean our carpets once a year and make sure everyone takes theyre shoes off at the back door before stepping on the carpet. I know this may sound a bit weird but owning a hopped up machine ensures me that I can clean my carpets like a pro and with the enforcing of removal of shoes we prevent most any dirt from tearing up the carpet fibers. However though steam cleaning is the best method, it kills bacteria and all kinds of crap and allows you to rinse the carpet throughly for the best cleaning leaving the carpet like it was new. Our house smells nice, and our socks stay white, if they start to turn grey in the slightest then we know we need to clean the carpets. Second Answer Yes, some methods just scrub the carpet and push the dirt down. The best method is to use steam and suck out the dirt. Extraction, combined with a carbonated cleaning solution. Cleaning with soaps/detergents leaves a residue, which attracts dirt to the carpet, making the carpet get dirtier, faster. First Answer

How do you get fleas out of a carpet?

You have to fumigate the house. Spray cans of fumigant are available at many hardware and pet stores; typically one can will do about 500 square feet (read the label). Plan where you are going to place each can, so that once you open it you need not go back into that room. Get all the people and animals out of the house, and then start blasting. Allow several hours for the stuff to work. You may need to repeat the process in ten days, as the sprays will kill adults and larvae but not eggs. And, of course, you will have to kill the fleas on your pets.

How do you install carpet in a furnished home?

A good installation requires all of the furniture to be removed from the area. Otherwise when the carpet is stretched, it can cause a wave to form.

Usually, if you are starting in a bedroom, you will move all the furniture from there and place into another room. You keep rotating the furniture out of the rooms until all the rooms are completed.

What is the Price to install carpet on stairs?

This depends on the carpet, the type of stairs you have, and how you want this installed. Assuming you have a fairly typical staircase of 15 stairs and a landing, you would need in the general area of 20 yards of carpet for a basic install. Labor will run you about $220 for a high quality install. A total price of around $600 for a somewhat middle of the road carpet. The final price will depend a lot of the style and quality carpet selected. Steps are more expensive to install because done right, they can take quite awhile to complete. If you are looking to have the sides bound to leave exposed hardwood, add an additional $1.50 + a running foot for binding. This usually is at least another $120 once it is all said and done. When looking for an installer to just do steps, make sure this installer will be fully padding and tacking carpet into place. A proper installer should be using tack board on the steps as well.

How to install Tahoe carpet?

Trhough my experience, this is the best install procedure that we have developed. It is simplified, but if you take your time and follow this, you should not have any problems: * Remove your new automobile carpet from the box, unroll and lay the carpet in a warm area and allow it to settle for one to two hours before attempting to install. (This will allow the automobile carpet to regain its molded shape.) * Remove sill plates (metal strip holding Automobile carpet at threshold of the door). Be sure to keep the screws. * Remove the front seats and seat tracks by removing the floor bolts in the seat tracks. Be sure to check for and disconnect any electrical connections. * Remove rear seat cushions and center console if applicable. * Remove seat belt bolts if they are mounted in the carpet area. * It may be required to remove or loosen the kick panels and other moldings to remove the old Automobile carpet. * Remove the old Automobile carpet, KEEP IT! do not discard the old carpet yet. * Remove the old carpet padding, leave the body insulation on the floor * Vacuum or sweep the floor, remove all loose matter * Place the old automobile carpet over your new Stock Interiors molded carpet. Mark any holes or additional cutout on the carpet with chalk, Do Not Cut the New carpet Yet! * Place your new automobile carpet in the vehicle by centering it on the transmission tunnel and working towards the sides. (If yours is a 2-piece carpet, install the rear first) * Match the contours of the auto carpet with the floor; be sure the heel pad is under the area for the gas pedal. * After confirming the proper fit, start the required cutouts as you fit the carpet to the vehicle. Note, it is better to start with a small slit in the carpet just large enough to fit over the object, then enlarge the opening only as much as required. Do Not Over Cut! * After the correct fit is determined, fold back a section of carpet, apply any needed adhesive, and press back down to the floor. (Tip:Using a common automotive spray adhesive in spots will give a smoother fit, and less likely to move over time.) Slip the automobile carpet under the kick panels, door posts, and any valance if present, trim the excess that has been provided to allow for a perfect fit into your automobile. * Replace back seat, kick panels, consoles, seat belts, front seats, and sill plates (caution should be taken when reapplying any screws not to catch or snag the carpet.)

How do you get gum out of carpet?

The most effective way is to freeze the gum with ice so that it is hard and no longer sticky, then chip or scrape it out. As long as the gum is sticky any attempt to remove it will only spread it.
