Do I need a special vacuum when I buy my new carpet
Here is a transcription, if you prefer to read instead:
“Hi, Don Lovato, back again. This one’s a really, really important question that people should be asking and they’re not asking enough of. Do I need a special vacuum if I select an ultrasoft carpet? At this time while we were shooting this video, there is a carpet called Mohawk SmartStrand Silk. It’s an ultrasoft carpet. It’s unbelievable. It’s beautiful. It’s luxurious. It’s “to die for” according to most of our clients. And even to us, because it’s so, so soft and so durable and stain resistant. Regardless, this carpet is so soft that whenever you try to vacuum it, the vacuum will literally collapse right into it, and it doesn’t allow the vacuum to move, it doesn’t allow any airflow. It’s very difficult.
So you need a special vacuum for that. They’re pretty inexpensive and so that’s the good news, and we have a list of them right on our website. So if you go on our website and you look under carpet, just hover over carpet. Right underneath you’re going to see a little drop down menu and you’ll see vacuums. Just click on that link and you’re see all the recommended vacuums that are there for you. We’ll even include a download, if you like, to print out and shop around for that vacuum. Thank you very much. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call. We’d be glad to answer them for you any time.“
