So, a machine they may have qualified for platinum before would maybe only make gold or silver now. Problem is, they did not plan in advance to ever change...

    Chemicals froze overnight.

    As a rule of thumb, detergents mix back pretty well after separating if everything is thawed when you mix them back together. Surfactants help the mixing. Polymers such as protectors and encapsulation chems won't mix after freezing. Those are just generalizations. Always are exceptions.

    Water leak under a house and insurance..

    Mysterious step discoloration

    Higher density is not actually les prone to staining but it hides the stains better.

    Black marks along carpet baseboard

    Higher density is better for the life of the carpet and for hiding stains. Higher density will also add to the cost. It means more yarn is used to make the carpet. The number of sticthes or tufts inserted per inch in the length (stitch rate) multiplied by the number opf stitches per inch in the...
