Gone are the days when your only choice for outdoor carpeting was cheap looking grassy green stuff. I remember the salesman saying "You can choose any color you want as long as its green." Nowadays outdoor carpet comes in a wide variety of both colors and styles. There are so many types available that it helps to be informed before making a selection. Whether its for your deck the patio or for around your pool you need to be familiar with the main types of outdoor carpeting currently available. Most outdoor carpet is made from Olefin (Polypropylene). While not being a very good choice for indoor carpet due to Olefins rough texture it is an excellent fiber for application outdoors.
In case plain water has failed to do the trick dilute a small amount of mild bleach in water together with a small amount of liquid detergent (go for bleach mixtures that can be used on colored fabrics and test in an inconspicuous area such as inside a closet-DO NOT USE BLEACH ON NYLON OR WOOL RUGS). This mixture will help remove the remaining stubborn stains. But if the carpet stain is not entirely removed by the said solution go for a mild chemical stain remover for carpets. You have to choose the milder solution because we all know how sensitive expensive carpet fibers are we want the stain removed but we do not want our carpets damaged.
Carpet isnt a common choice for kitchens and bathrooms these days but if you do opt for carpet in either of these areas pick one that is water resistant and stain resistant. Water can easily damage carpet causing it to rot and youll soon find yourself replacing it. Its not feasible to keep water off a carpet in a bathroom entirely but with a carpet with good water resistance and perhaps some extra rugs you can have a carpeted bathroom if you really want to. Carpet in a bathroom can actually be reassuring for the elderly or those who are unsteady on their feet as theres less chance of slipping than you have with tiles or laminate and if you should fall theres less chance of injury with a slightly softer landing.
Buying a carpet can get really expensive and hence cleaning and maintaining it should be one of your top priorities to get the maximum effect out of this investment. It is advised to vacuum your carpet at least twice a week. If you are someone with a busy schedule and with less time to devote towards cleaning your carpet you will do well to choose one in fibres like olefin nylon and polyester. Besides that you will have to instantly attend to spills so that they do not dry up and set in deeply. Since youre going to spend a lot of moolah on your carpet it makes sense to buy it from a well-known carpet retailer to avoid unpleasant experiences. If you dont know any ask someone among your friends and family who own a good carpet.
