Soggy, Smelly And Stained – Wet Carpet Issues

Often overlooked and seldom detected, even by our close friends, this monster skulks amongst us daily. It is attracted to those susceptible to its influence, into whom it burrows like a worm, while normal people suffer nothing more than a glancing blow from time to time.

If the hairball is dry, simply take a paper towel and pick up the bulk of the mess, throw it away, get a new paper towel and start lightly peeling the dried bits off the carpet. You don’t have to get everything; just the chunky and dried runny stuff.

One day after I got home from work there was someone at the door. I begged my husband to never answer the door again because this was the doorbell from hell and what stood on the other side of the door was something so frightening and relentless in its pursuit…. it was a Kirby Vacuum salesman. Actually it was a Kirby Vacuum salesperson and she was too small and too cute to be lugging around this ridiculous box from door to door. My first problem with Kirby salespeople is they apparently cannot read the signs at our neighborhood entrance that clearly states “No Soliciting.” My other problem is that they will not take no for an answer and can somehow work such magic on you that pretty soon you realize they’ve been in your house for hours.

Unfortunately until we are through this very snowy winter, any time it snows you could see more water and will need to continue to remove the snow from your rooftop. So, once you find that reliable person, don’t lose his number!

A popular and probably most damaging way to dry thick carpet/rugs is to lay them out in the sun. Even a short trip in front of the sun’s rays could fade your rug. I would even recommend not placing your rug in a place where the sun hits it for long periods of the day inside your home let alone outside. This will surely damage your emergency carpet drying. Better idea is to extract the water and put some fans near it to get air moving and dry it out faster. If laying them in the sun is necessary, put the top side down and lay on a flat surface.

It’s the length of the vision that decides your outcome. Successful people are always in search of a long-term solution to potentially recurring or compounding problems. But poor people look for a temporary solution to solve a single immediate problem, no more, no less.

Why do people with severe depression stay alone? Many reasons; mainly it’s a coping mechanism. Sometimes it’s to avoid the plethora of advice from the amateur psychiatrists that fill the world who cheerily advise “oh, just shake it off…go for a walk…mind over matter…fight it, man, fight!…you’re letting it get the better of you…you’re weak.” There is a simple two word response to these pieces of advice and the second of the words is “off.” To a depressed person the advice – while well meaning – only increases they’re own feeling of worthlessness.

If the padding has developed adamant stains, don’t worry, this would go below the carpet and would be concealed. Check for any mold attack on the padding by visually inspecting for any patches, discoloration or smell it. If you find it musty, then mildew has set in and takes necessary steps to terminate the mildews in the padding. If the smell still persists, then you will have to get a new replacement and dispose this.
