All carpet requires regular vacuuming and most likely annually by professional cleaning with a truck-mount steam cleaning system. Always ask about cleaning methods when shopping for carpet, what you can do as a consumer to see that your carpet looks better longer and what needs to be done to keep up that warranty.
We know that the “face” of the carpet (the style side) is the most exciting, but the back is also something for you to examine. Carpet backing adds to the dimensional stability of the carpet (so it hold its shape).
As you are looking for carpet, another thing to ask your flooring professional to show you are the types of cushion available. There is so much that goes into a great carpet and great carpet design, and carpet cushion is one – and it’s so easily overlooked. Like the backing, it’s never seen again after it’s installed, so, as fashion buyers we rarely if ever think of what lies beneath.
Hopefully these tips will help you when you are looking for carpet…going beyond the color and style and design.
