Simple Carpet Care Approach Significant to Avoid Curling Up of Carpeting


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Crafts
Sure there are products that keep rugs from slipping, but the corners would still curl causing trip hazards and possible damage to rugs. Carpets that curl up at the corners are a tripping hazard. A carpet or rug should lay flat all around regardless of whether it sits on tile, hardwood or another carpeted surface. Curling is a common problem for area rugs due to the fact that they have spent most of their life rolled up in some form or other.

FLATTENING THE CURLS

Steaming - Take a steam cleaner or a wet sponge and moisten the areas where the curling is at its worst. The water will help loosen the fibers and enable it to lay flat. Once the water dries there should be some improvement. If not, there are still other methods that can be tried.

Ironing - Take a wet towel and moisten the areas where the carpet is curling. Next, take an iron and set it to a medium heat. With the towel still covering the carpeted area, hold down the iron and press. This should flatten the areas out. Do not set the iron at too high a heat as this could leave burn marks on the new carpet. If this method proves unsuccessful, try another steps.

Use the Furniture - Take the carpet and place it in the affected spot. Take available pieces of furniture and place it around the corners. This is usually where the curling is particularly bad. It may not be the best look for a room but it is only temporary and should sort the problem out within a week or so. Once that time has passed, remove the furniture to reveal a hopefully flattened area rug. If this has not worked, more drastic measures will be needed.

Use Books - For some, space limitations may not allow for furniture to be used. In this situation, get your hands on all of the large sized books that you have to hand. Dictionaries, Encyclopedias, phone books and so forth are the best but any large, heavy book will do. Leave the books in place for a week or two. Remove again after the time has passed and a flat rug should be evident.

Reverse - Simply taking the carpet and laying it upside down will also help stop curling. It may look odd for a while but you should have a flattened area rug in about a week or so.

For an inexpensive carpet, try to work the curled corner in the opposite direction. Dampen the corner using a wet rag, and tuck the curl under overnight or while you're at work, so the fold won't be a tripping hazard. If that doesn't stretch the fibers back into place, use double-sided carpet tape to fix a 12-inch, cork-backed ruler to the carpet's backside, along each edge leading up to the offending corner. The cork shouldn't scratch or damage the flooring. Ruler-shaped, thick strips of cardboard or cork should work on lightweight rugs. Along the same idea, find anti-curling carpet corners at home and building-supply stores. If you aren't concerned about residue on the flooring, tape the curl directly to the floor. Avoid damaging antique or expensive rugs by seeking the services of a qualified carpet repair person; the rug's internal wefts may be pulling the internal foundation.The flips that form at the corners could be from new, rigid material or from movement as feet shuffle over it. Depending on the rug's worth, your options for repair differ.
