Guys XO is coming out to have another inspection with Housing director, me and the service member. TWrote up the preinspection that the carpet was loose, never powerstretched and none of the seams ahowed seam seal with black light and thwrefore carpet was considered damaged goods IAW CRI 105 ch.16. I did this simply because I know that housing replaces carpet by taking advantage of these younger service members.
When I went back Friday I pulled a section of carpet back to look at one area which I'll pull this morning to show there is no yellow stain in that backing even though black light shows but hydrometer doesnt.
I feel sorry for these guys that get taken advantage of for serving their country and get gigfed for this. Im going to make a scene that they gave this young family carpet that wasn't installed correctly and was actually damaged goods just because they were poor service members that are just considered cannon fodder to housing civilians.
As far as I know the hydrometer is a much accurate tool for urine in the carpet. I don't think a blacklight will even pick it up in polypropylenes or most polyesters. They hydrometer will find it in those carpets in the backing. The blacklight picks up many things especially optical brightners from most carpet spotters. I have rugs that I have bathed from puppy urine from years ago that still show.
Am I correct here rega4ding black light vs hydrometer?
