Static Electricity in Carpeting

When you walk across your carpet, are finger shocks and other static electricity problems driving you nuts?
Static electricity is affected by several variables, notably the type of carpet fibers and cushion, the type of shoes you’re wearing, how you walk on it, and the amount of moisture in the air.
In general, nylon carpeting will generate significantly more electricity than polyester or wool. Some new carpets have special fiber blends or treatments built into them that are intended to eliminate static electricity.
Humidity is the very significant because moisture in carpet fibers dissipates electrical charge. In other words, carpeting in a room with very dry air will not contain much moisture in its fibers. As a result, it will be more likely to generate static electricity.
Adding moisture to the air with a humidifier can help. If sufficient water is added to the air, it will eliminate the static problem, but too much moisture can produce condensation problems.
Spray-on anti-static agents are available to deal with static. Just be advised that these are not a permanent solution because they eventually wear off the surface (typically in a few months). Additionally, some are a bit sticky and, as a result, can cause dirt build-up on a carpet’s surface. If you choose to use a spray-on anti-static agent, ask your dealer for one that won’t cause dirt build-up.

Ruben was awesome. He saved me so much money as compared to what the plumber was charging. I'm very grateful and most definitely will use him again. Thank you so very much Ruben.

Thank you.

He was available, fast, professional and left the job exceptionally clean and beyond complete. I will use him again for sure. I highly recommend him.

He did a great job. I had a tight schedule and he was able to fit me in and do a great job. For a bit extra he hauled my old carpet away.

Great Job.

Ruben was quick, efficient, and did more than expected. Pleasant, too. I intend on hiring him for as many jobs around the building I own as possible. His fees are too low. He should be charging more. I tipped him because of it.

Ruben was fantastic. He came when he said he would, did a great job of patching the dry wall and did an excellent job cleaning up. We will use him again when we need more repairs.

Ruben was here right on time and does excellent work. We had a large whole in our drywall do to a leak and Ruben patched the drywall and made it look like new and did it for a lower cost then any other bid we received. Professional and quality work. We will definitely recommend him and use him again. 

Right on Time
