The last major issue with corridor carpets that is often seen is when wall to wall carpet is replaced by new carpet tiles. Carpet tiles are installed with a pressure sensitive adhesive. This adhesive must be applied to a clean concrete surface free of all contaminants including adhesive from previous carpet installations. If pressure sensitive adhesive is applied over the old carpet adhesive then it mixes in with it moisture is trapped and as the moisture eventually tries to escape around the edges of the carpet tiles and lift or the new adhesive emulsifies. Again this issue is usually blamed on the manufacturer and the carpet supplier will often try and gluedown the lifting edges using adhesive that they should not be using in attempt to keep the lifting edges down on the concrete.

You could search for the latest trends online or you could just go by what pleases your eye. Use your common sense for simple colour ideas like going for a dark colour if you have small kids or pets at home and opting for soft shades to add a contrasting effect to a room with dark coloured walls. If you want to create a relaxed homely feel in your house you could go for earthy tones. Be mindful of placing dark coloured carpets in an area that receives direct sunlight as that can result in the fading of the carpets colour over time. Cleaning a carpet properly is hard work and time consuming. You need to pick a carpet depending on how often you plan to clean it.
Of course one of the most important tips to remember about caring for your carpet is to vacuum it regularly. Carpets not only pick up the dirt from the number of passengers that walk over it but it also collects dust particles. Vacuuming your carpet sucks up the dirt from the carpet and also eliminates the bacteria and dirt that can stick in the textile of the carpet when left un-vacuumed for a long period. It is however important to note that vacuuming does not completely clean your carpet. The dust that collects in a carpet could cause serious diseases such as asthma and some vacuum cleaners send the dirt flying into the air only for the dust to re-settle back on and into the carpet once again; it is therefore important for one to set the vacuum to the correct pile setting so that the dirt absorption and deep cleaning is efficient. With vacuuming it is also critical to remember to change the filter and vacuum bag regularly.
