St. Louis Carpet Repair Experts Explain the Dangers of Torn Carpet

“OUCH!” That’s the sound of your guest tripping over a tear or unsecured edge in your carpet. You may not realize it, but carpet damages like this act as an environmental hazard that can contribute to falls. When you think of hazards on the ground, you may consider wet floors, exposed wires and dangerous debris that may cause you to slip or trip. However, damaged carpeting can pose a number of threats to visitors if not properly treated. Sams is here to help you rethink these dangers, and provide the fix you need to help ensure a safe environment.

Why Torn Carpets are a Major Hazard?

Torn carpets create an uneven area on the ground. Although guests may not notice the snagged areas, there are chances a foot could get caught in the seams, resulting in a fall and potential injuries. We at Sams Carpet Cleaning & Repairs always stress the importance of carpet preventative maintenance so that further unexpected situations like tripping on the carpet, doesn’t happen and that no one gets hurt. Safety first, everyone!

What Causes Torn Carpet?

It doesn’t take much for carpet to unravel at your residence or place of business. There are a few things that contribute to the tearing process:

Pet Damage

You thinking about locking Fluffy and Fido in the bedroom again? Yes, you want your four-legged friends to settle down when the company arrive, but leaving them locked in a room may lead your pet to digging their way out of there. The clawing at your carpet isn’t the only thing that will cause ripples on your floors. Let’s just say, the other thing is nasty and will lead to the destruction of your floor’s padding. Not only will pet urine stink, the deposit will weaken the carpet and eventually separate it.

Vacuuming

Vacuuming is an essential part of proper maintenance, right? You want to practice vacuuming your carpet in high traffic areas regularly, but when doing so, make sure you pay attention to the material on the floor. Running a vacuum over a softer surface can create snags on your carpet and rip out fibers. Fibers are subject to wear and tear, one of the most common causes of torn carpet, and the vacuum help remove them when it’s not treated properly.

Poor Installation

Poor maintenance and lack of attention contributes to the destruction of your floor. If your carpet wasn’t properly installed, expect subtle changes to appear, such as rips and tears, if objects are dragged over the surface. This will potentially lead to additional holes in different section and cause ripples in the carpet. It’s important for the carpet installer to powerstretch the carpet tight for best performance!

Humidity

Humidity is one of the biggest issues of carpet buckling and causing more damage to your carpet. Missouri is known for our humid weather. Due to the constant change of seasons in Missouri and high humid climate, the moisture in the air penetrates the carpet and causes it to expand. Carpet may lay flat again without needing to do a repair once the moisture levels in the air return back to normal. If not, this will cause further damage to carpet if not repaired right away and will tear.

Delamination

Delamination is caused when the secondary back of the carpet separates from the primary backing that is holding everything together and latex adhesive is breaking down. The carpet is now more movable, can buckle and tear. Much older carpets are more likely to have this happen over time or the carpet is defective. If defective, contact retailor or carpet manufacturer who will likely send an inspector to look at the issue.

What Can You Do to Prevent or Repair a Torn Carpet Situation?

There are a few ways you can remedy your carpet:

Properly installed carpet – Speaking of improper installation, carpet should be placed properly by skilled professionals to ensure that it does not snag, catch or become damaged too soon. Sure, your first inclination may be to fix it yourself or replace it, but that’s what we’re here for! For some people, they’d rather repair the carpet then to have the high cost to replace it.

Regularly inspect your carpet – As a homeowner or business owner, walk throughout the premises to check for potential tears to ensure you get it fixed as soon as possible. At Sams, we will come to your home or business, free of charge, to inspect damaged carpet and determine the best solution to restore your floors.

Carpet Stain Removal Tips from the St. Louis Area’s Carpet Cleaning Pros

“Darn it!” If you’ve ever spilled a glass of red wine or watched one of the kids sends a tumbler full of Kool-Aid cascading onto the carpet, those words have likely crossed your lips. While many things might be running through your mind in that moment, you have to focus on the best way to address the colored spot that now adorns your carpet. There are a number of things you should do, and a couple you definitely shouldn’t. The Sams Carpet Cleaning and Repair team has you covered! We’ve assembled this list of actions to take immediately to help ensure that stain doesn’t stick around.

Tip #1: Act Quickly to Remove Liquid

The first step is to extract as much liquid as possible out of the carpet. To do that, blot the affected area with a white or light-colored cloth. Apply pressure with the heel of your hand to absorb as much of the liquid as you possibly can. Remember, you only want to blot the area. Do not rub! The more it seeps into your carpet, the more time it will have to adhere to the carpet fibers, increasing the likelihood of permanent damage. Also, avoid using colored or printed towels on the spill. The dye from the material may transfer onto your carpet, leaving you with an even bigger mess than you started with.

Tip #2: Be Careful Using Over The Counter Cleaners

Stains and spills are always unexpected and obviously never welcome, so your first instinct might be to reach for a bottle of anything that could take care of the mess. But you might be inviting bigger problems. Before using any over the counter spot removers, which may contain certain ingredients that may cause more problems than they fix, try using warm water in a spray bottle and a white rag. Commercially available cleaning products are typically low quality, and most contain oil, petroleum, silica, or other chemicals. These can leave residue on your carpet, break down fibers, and ultimately, attract more dirt. You might also find different remedies for specific stains online. But be careful what you use on the carpet, because we have seen many customers left with a permanent stain that could have been avoided. If you are using an over-the-counter product, start by applying it in a very small area to see if it works. If not, set it aside and call a professional!

Tip #3: Use Quality Products Formulated for Carpet

If you’re a past customer of Sams, you received a free bottle of our “Outta Sight” spot remover. Outta Sight is trusted by homeowners throughout the St. Louis area, because it is specifically formulated to help you combat colorful spills without damaging your carpet or leaving residue behind. If you do not have a bottle of our Outta Sight spot remover, we recommend avoiding the DIY route completely. Using a product that isn’t made specifically for carpets could cause more damage. And that’s the last thing we want!

Tip #4: Bring in a Carpet Stain Professional

Ultimately, the best preventive action you can take is calling in a professional. We know the impact that different spills can have on carpet, and can create a solution to address the spot without damaging your carpet fibers. Going it alone and using improper chemicals and techniques can have negative long-term effects on your carpet. We want to help you avoid that. The Sams team cares about protecting your investment, and is committed to helping you eradicate unsightly stains.

Next time the red wine or Kool-Aid spills on your carpet, avoid the panic. Know that Sams is on your side! If you’re in the St. Louis region and you have a spot or stain you’re not quite sure how to handle, call the Sams team! We’ll assess the situation and deploy a solution tailored to overcoming your carpet stain.

The Top Four DIY Carpet Cleaning Mistakes People Make

Are you the type of person who finds the idea of rolling up your sleeves and tackling a weekend project around the house appealing? We applaud you! If that means planting some flowers or trying out a new paint technique you learned on Pinterest, making a mistake or two along the way isn’t that big of an issue. But that’s not the case with do-it-yourself carpet cleaning. The truth is, there are a number of carpet cleaning mistakes we routinely see novices make. In this article, we’ll detail four really good reasons to trust your carpet cleaning to the pros.

Over-Shampooing Leaves Residue Behind

That’s right, folks. You can do too much of a good thing. And in this case, we’re talking about the shampoo (soap) applied to your carpet. We’ve found that many DIYers make this rookie mistake. Not only do they apply too much shampoo during the cleaning process, but they also don’t properly rinse out what they do apply. The chemicals left behind can damage your carpet, and will leave a residue that will transform your carpet into a dirt magnet. At Sams, we use the appropriate product for your specific carpet, in the right amount. And we properly rinse the area ensuring the only thing left behind is fresh, clean carpet fibers.

Over-Wetting Invites Mold, Mildew, and Damage

Since we’re on the topic of rinsing, soaking your carpet in water isn’t the solution to getting a clean surface. If too much water is applied, you run the risk of inviting mold and mildew problems into your home. That excess moisture will lie beneath the surface for a long time before it dries out! You also may see your carpet shrink and begin to tear from the edges or seams. Sams uses a proper rinsing technique that will remove residue and ensure the carpet dries promptly – typically after about a half day. To assist with dry time, depending on the outside conditions, air conditioning or heat, we employ a variety of strategies to ensure continuous air flow, which helps shorten the duration of the drying process.

Overuse of Deodorizers Makes Your Carpet Look Worse

In addition to getting your carpet clean, you want it to smell its best for guests. We get it. You don’t want your floor to smell like Fluffy and Fido rolled around on it after a playdate. Deodorizing your carpet may mask smells, but it’s not a long-term solution or substitute for cleaning. The powder will get stuck in your carpet fibers resulting in a messy, dull-looking carpet. Using too much of this powder can create buildup that can’t be removed with your vacuum.

Cleaning Carpet Yourself May Void Your Warranty

Many carpet manufacturers’ warranties require that the carpet is professional cleaned to keep it validated. Be sure to check your specific manufacturer warranties before you go and do it yourself. When in doubt, contact a professional. It could save you a LOT of money in the long haul!

Avoid the Carpet Cleaning Mistakes with One Call to Sams

Next time you’re considering renting a machine or rolling out all of your over-the-counter carpet cleaning products, consider giving us a call. The Sams team is passionate about providing our customers with the best experience, and making your home a place you can relax and take comfort. As part of our commitment to excellence, we utilize the latest cleaning technology on your carpet for stains or smells, and even bring those high traffic areas back to life with an advanced extraction cleaning system. When we’re done, we will conduct a thorough final inspection to make sure you’re satisfied. Let Sams take the work, and the worry, out of cleaning your carpets!

Follow This Checklist Before Selling Your House

Warm weather is here and just like all the flowers springing up in your yard, so are “FOR SALE” signs. Spring and summer are popular times to sell a house. If you’re planning to put your house on the market, your home must stand out and look its best. Sams is here to help you make that happen. Following this checklist will ensure your house is refreshed, renewed, and ready for a quick sale at top dollar.

Take Care of Offensive Odors at the Source

The moment that a potential buyer opens the door to your home, they begin to form a laundry list of impressions. Those first impressions can make all the difference in whether your home gets the offers it deserves. Good or bad, the way your home smells can set it apart from others.

You might not even realize that your home has a particular odor that could turn potential buyers off, but a real estate agent (or even your best friend) will point this out to you.

If odor is a problem in your home, Sams can take care of those funky smells and create an environment that’s pleasing to the noses of your potential buyers. Air fresheners create an unnatural smell and only temporarily cover up smells. Some potential home buyers may even be allergic to them or not like the scents you chose. The smell you’re looking for us “clean,” and there’s really only one way to get it. So leave this job to the pros!

Check out Sams’ specialized services to help with eliminating odors, whether it’s to help sell your current home or make your new one more enjoyable.

Clean Carpet is a Must

There are many in the real estate business who would advise that a total carpet replacement is needed when selling a house. We agree that stained, worn, or dirty carpets will surely turn many buyers away. But you may not need to replace your carpet at all when you rely on Sams! We have expertise in carpet cleaning and stain removal. We can even employ patching or spot dying for particularly tough areas. Even ripples and indentations are no match for the Sams team.

Remember that most buyers only spend moments in a house, and if they find themselves in a room with dirty or damaged carpets, they are far less likely to make your home their own.

Don’t Ignore Your Tile and Grout

Bathrooms and kitchens are where homebuyers focus most of their attention when viewing properties. Moldy or dingy tile and grout in these rooms can make or break a homebuyer’s impression. While tile is great because of its durability, it can be difficult to get truly clean. Many people do not know that tile and grout can be cleaned and made to look new again, giving your kitchen, bathroom, or any tiled room in your home a facelift. A visit from Sams can turn drab tile and grout into a showstopper.

Freshen Up Your Upholstery Furniture

Even though the person buying your home won’t likely be buying your furniture with it, it’s part of what they see when viewing your home. Stained or dirty furniture can leave potential homebuyers with a bad impression of your home overall. We understand all upholstery is different, and Sams knows the best way to clean and beautify your furniture again.  Do yourself a favor and have it cleaned so your home looks great for showing, and you will have clean furniture for your new home! It’s a win-win all around.

Eliminate Signs of Pets

We love our furry friends, but the reality is that having pets in the home can lead to fur trapped in hard-to-clean places such as carpeting or furniture. Pets can also be the cause of the odors we pointed out earlier.  While diligent vacuuming can keep the fur somewhat under control, it doesn’t always take care of the fur that has embedded deep in your carpets, or the smell your pet can leave behind. Even the best-trained pet can have an accident from time to time, and the moisture can penetrate below the carpet, into the padding or even the subfloor. Save yourself the hassle (or even worse) the need to get new carpet, and let Sams take care of it for a truly deep clean. Your future homebuyers will thank you.

Selling a home can be stressful and we are here to help you take the stress out of the process by getting your ready to be a show stopper from the moment a potential buyer sets foot inside your door. Call Sams today to schedule a cleaning before you list your home for sale this year!

Three Carpet Cleaning Myths Debunked

“If there’s a stain on your carpet, who you gonna call?” Sams Carpet!

You probably were expecting the next line in our tune to be ghostbusters, but that myth ends here and the solution to professional carpet cleaning begins. There are a lot of theories circulating around carpets and how you should clean them. Sorry to inform you, but a lot of those so called “facts” are indeed carpet cleaning myths. At Sams, our favorite myth is probably “I have my own carpet-cleaning machine, so I don’t need to hire a professional.” While your home machine may work, it won’t have the same suction power professional machines do.

So, who you gonna to call? That’s right. Us! Here is a list of carpet cleaning myths you may have heard, the reasons they’re false, and the truths you can carry going forward.

Carpet Cleaning Myth #1: Wait as long as possible before cleaning new carpet.

This myth suggests that cleaning your carpets will permanently change the appearance of your floor coverings. We’re here to tell you it’s simply not true. If you wait too long to clean your carpet, there will be damage done to the fibers. Many people believe this myth due to prior experiences with carpet cleaners who leave the carpet too wet or full of residue. At Sams, we do a proper analysis of your carpet prior to cleaning it to ensure you receive the best method tailored to your carpet and environment. When we’re done cleaning your carpet, we work to extract and remove all residues and dry your carpet before moving furniture back in.

Carpet Cleaning Myth #2: You can clean your carpet too often. 

You can’t bathe too often. You can’t wash your hands too often. And you can’t clean your carpets too often. The more often a carpet is cleaned, the longer it will maintain its original appearance. A lot of people aren’t aware that many carpet manufacturers recommend professional cleaning to maintain your warranty. At Sams, our trained technicians provide proper maintenance, cleaning and care to extend the lifecycle of your carpet and preserve its appearance.

Carpet Cleaning Myth #3: Over-The-Counter Stain Removal Products Are Professional-Grade

Over-the-counter stain removers are formulated to treat many types of carpet stains. As a result, these products are made from many different solutions in order to work efficiently with a wide range of stains. These products do more damage to your carpet, and contribute to discoloration. In contrast, a properly formulated, fiber-specific stain remover, such as Sams “Outta Sight” doesn’t reduce the lifespan of carpet. All of our customers receive a free refillable bottle of “Outta Sight” to help with spot regulation in between visits.

Carpet Cleaning Fact: Sams Delivers Smiles and Clean Carpet

Turning dirty, spotted carpet into something you can be proud of is only part of what we do every day at Sams. We are committed to exceeding the expectations of our customers every time we show up for a scheduled cleaning. We utilize a process, specifically geared towards your carpet, to ensure we get to the root of the problem. Not only will our team examine high traffic areas, but they will groom your carpet to assist in the drying process and reduce the appearance of matting and crushing. We do a final inspection of the work because we care, and want to make sure you are fully satisfied. Some stains are permanent and we offer carpet repair services to address those as well. Our professional and skilled technicians will evaluate and determine the best method to approach removing the stain.

“We can’t hear you. Who you gonna call?” If you’re over those myths, and want to treat your home to some professional carpet cleaning it so deserves, give Sams a call!

Spring Cleaning Tip #1: Start From the Bottom Up

Everyone knows we do carpet cleaning and repairs, but did you know we also do tile and grout cleaning?

Get your tile and grout in shape for summer and ready to face the seasons ahead.

Spring Cleaning Tip #2: Cozy Up on a Clean Couch

Our upholstered furniture isn’t something we put on our weekly cleaning list, but it still deserves some love and care! We carefully inspect your piece of furniture to determine the best way to clean it, whether that is dry cleaning or steam cleaning. We make sure to prep your furniture and color test on a small, unnoticeable area first. We know you love your furniture, and we clean it with care, so it will last a long time and always look its best.

Spring Cleaning Tip #3: Be Prepared for Spring Showers

Spring is notorious as being one of the rainiest times of the year, and if you have a basement that’s been known to flood, all that rain may be more stressful than refreshing. We hope you’ll never need it, but Sams offers 24-Hour Water Damage Restoration, every single day of the year. Our technicians are experienced and formally trained to quickly remove water from your home or business and use evaporation techniques to prevent additional damage.

The America’s Center in St. Louis: Big or Small, Sams Cleans it All

From concerts to monster trucks to sporting events and more, there are very few people in the St. Louis region who don’t have some memory of an event they’ve attended at The America’s Center. Our staff is no different. But there’s something really cool about getting a behind-the-scenes look at a place like that when it’s empty. So when we had the opportunity to provide carpet cleaning services at this great St. Louis landmark in February, we jumped at the opportunity.

Sometimes great work speaks for itself. Mark Gruhala, Assistant Director of Operations at The America’s Center, took notice of the great work our team did in restoring the furniture and carpets at the Stifel Theatre. When he asked who the company was behind the great transformation, the team at Stifel Theatre referred him to us. After reading our story and seeing the photos, Mark contacted us for an estimate, and met with Sams President Jeff Sams onsite to conduct a walkthrough to identify areas that needed to be addressed.

members of the sams carpet cleaning team preparing to work at the America's CenterWhen it came time to do the job, we sent an A-team of four technicians: Ed, Jakob, Keith, and Chuck. The team was sent to address a few critical areas in the stadium that needed the most attention, including the hallway on both sides of the executive suites, the home and guest locker rooms, and some additional dressing rooms.

With a job like this, access can sometimes be an issue, but the team at The America’s Center was accommodating and gave us access to all the areas we needed to be. To get the hoses from the vans to the areas we were cleaning, we needed to pull directly onto the main floor of the stadium. From there, we were able to use our high-powered carpet cleaning equipment to reach and address all the areas that needed attention.

We were able to address trouble areas, restore the carpets, and prepare The America’s Center for everything to come in the year ahead. In addition to The America’s Center and Stifel Theatre, the Sams team has also been called on for large-scale cleaning projects at Enterprise Center, home of the St. Louis Blues.

But our trademark yellow vans have also been put to work in offices and homes of all sizes throughout the region. No matter the size of the project, we have the tools, experience, and expertise to get the job done. Contact us today to put our team to work for you!

The St. Louis Area’s Pet Stain Removal and Carpet Damage Repair Team

We all love Fido, and we know Fido loves us. But sometimes we don’t love the wear and tear Fido can have on our home. Being animal lovers ourselves, we fully understand the cocktail of emotions pet ownership can put you through. If you’ve come home to a mess thanks to Fido, the Sams team has your back. In this article, we’ll detail the services we offer to help homeowners overcome pet stains and damage.

Pet Urine Stain Removal

Pet urine is tricky because it doesn’t always just affect the surface of your carpet. If a stain is bad enough, it can soak all the way down to your subfloor. We recommend pet owners commit to a regular regimen of carpet cleaning to prevent extensive damage. Our cleaning process utilizes enzymes to destroy odor from minor mishaps on an ongoing basis. If your pet has a favorite spot, we can also inspect the area to determine if there’s been further damage, and how significant it is. We can also help with pet urine stains on your upholstered furniture.

Pet Carpet Damage Repair

You know Fido. Always curious and exploring the world around him with his teeth and claws. Pets can make quite an impact on your carpet. They have an uncanny knack for finding loose strands and turning little problems into great big ones. Sams deploys an entire arsenal of carpet repair strategies for our customers in St. Louis and St. Charles County. We can repair seams that are separating, snags that are inviting a tug, and much more. Even if Fido hasn’t yet found a carpet blemish to exploit, it’s a good idea to get the Sams team involved in repairing it before he does. Call us for a free inspection to determine the best course of action.

Other Pet Stain Removal

Whether it was from an accident, or your pet got into something he shouldn’t have and tracked it all around the house, trying to remove the stains yourself can spread them around or even make them permanent. At Sams, we’ve seen it all, and know what it takes to get the stains out! But the best time to call is right when you discover a stain. With immediate attention, most stains can be removed. If we can’t remove the stain, we can often patch or even dye your carpet so no one will know the difference.

Pet Odor Control

The smell of your home is a product of all the people, animals, and things that are in it. And sometimes Fido creates odors even without having an accident. Pets can leave lingering and unpleasant smells in specific rooms or throughout your home. We can clean your carpets to remove all the odors caused by pets and make them smell fresh again. We also have several odor control solutions to freshen up the air your family breathes.

We know you love Fido, even when he does something to color your vocabulary with words we won’t repeat here. When that happens, we’ve got your back. Call the Sams team to get your carpet and furniture in ship shape in no time.
