Olefin is both stain and moisture resistant. Most outdoor carpet made from Olefin is UV resistant as well which helps the carpet retain its colors. There are several different grades of outdoor carpeting available. The cheapest (economy grade) is the classic grassy green looking stuff that I mentioned earlier. Economy grade outdoor carpet is suitable for application underneath covered outdoor areas such as patios. Its also the cheapest outdoor carpet. High grade grass carpet is a step up from the economy grade and can be applied in fully exposed outdoor areas. We highly recommend selecting a high grade grass carpet with a marine backing if the area youll be installing it in will receive even moderate amounts of moisture.
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.
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.
Then a third bead of seam sealer is supposed to be applied to one edge of the seam to "weld" together the carpet panels. Most carpet installers and retailers are unaware of this requirement. It is no wonder that seams are fuzzing in so many buildings. Unfortunately the blame for fuzzing seams gets placed on the carpet manufacturer the carpet cleaners the vacuum cleaners and the latest one is the new LEED approved carpet adhesive. There is nothing further from the truth. The reason the architects and the carpet manufacturers insist on all cut edges of the carpet be encapsulated with a seam sealer is that they need it. The construction of carpet and the adhesives used to bind the primary and secondary backings has changed for a number of reasons primarily to make carpet a carpet "greener".
