If you regularly eat and drink in your reception rooms then a stain resistant carpet is a good idea. These days there are some brilliant carpets that are specially coated to resist spills. They dont soak into the fibres of the carpet and so are much easier to keep clean. Weve probably all felt that feeling of horror when a glass of red wine has been spilt onto a pale coloured carpet at a party. Everyone has their own solution; add white wine pour salt on it but really they rarely do any good. Much better to pick a stain resistant carpet in the first place. Theyre also good if you have pets or small children as it will make cleaning up any little accidents much easier reducing stains and odours that can linger in carpets.
Carpeted common corridors in condominiums often have stylized borders and irregularly shaped hallways that require several carpet panels to be seamed together to complete the installation. The manner in which carpet seams are expected to be constructed has changed dramatically over the last five years. Unfortunately no one seems to have informed the carpet installers. There is just no mechanism in the industry that keeps the carpet installers and retailers informed on industry changes. According to the Carpet and Rug Institutes Standard for Carpet Installation 2011 glued down carpet is supposed to have all cut edges seam sealed with a thermo plastic adhesive or something similar.
While other forms of flooring offer convenience especially where cleaning is concerned carpets remains one of the main means to give a house a more homely feel and comfort. Carpets come in an assortment of styles colours and patterns so finding a suitable carpet for each room is relatively easy but the reason that has driven most people away from carpets and pushing them towards tiling and other forms of flooring is the common misconception of cleaning being a daunting task which it really ought not to be. Maintaining a carpet is one of the most important things to remember as this can help greatly in the overall life of a carpet.
Another installation related issue creating havoc with installations is lack of adhesive being used to hold the carpet to the substrate. If there is one place where corners can be cut its by cutting back on the amount of adhesive used to hold down the carpet. You can double the "savings" if the carpet is a double-gluedown installation. This type of installation is when the carpet is affixed to the underpad and the underpad is affixed to the concrete. There are charts that clearly outline what kind of trowel to use to apply the adhesive on different styles of carpet backings. Unfortunately its rare that installers to abide by this chart. The rule of thumb for a properly affixed carpet is that it would be extremely difficult to peel back a carpet and if you could that there would be legs in the adhesive. Legs in the adhesive means that the where the glue separates from the concrete there are strings of adhesive between the floor and the carpet backing.
