5 Signs It’s Time for Carpet Replacement

Posted by on Mar 16, 2017 in Blog, Carpet | Comments Off on 5 Signs It’s Time for Carpet Replacement

Not sure if you need a carpet replacement? Honestly, it can seem like a daunting task that pulls from your wallet. Yet, winter is the perfect time to wreck havoc on your carpet, due to a build up of salt, rocks, ice and snow.  As the weather starts to warm up again, it might just be time for you to replace your carpet. Read our guide below on the top 5 signs that it’s time for a carpet replacement, and consider replacing yours today. When is Carpet Replacement Necessary? All carpet has to be replaced eventually, regardless of how much proper care and deep cleaning you devoted to it. The following signs will help you decide if your carpet needs to be replaced or not.  Matting Matting happens when the carpet fibers are bent and compressed due to foot traffic, inadequate care, and improper cushioning. In time, the carpet will become compacted and entangled, leaving no hope behind. Polyester carpet and carpet that’s been around for a long time are susceptible to matting, and there isn’t a cure for them beyond replacement.  When you’re choosing new carpet, make sure it can withstand the factors of time to last you a long time.  Stains If you have more than a couple stains on your carpet, it might be time to replace it.  There are many different types of carpet stains, but the general categories include: Common Stains  Oil-Based Stains Dye Stains Coffee Stains Pet Stains If you’ve encountered any of these, make sure you use stain remover and cleaners immediately.  The best solution for severe stains is to replace the carpet and start over. Mold Biological factors can cause mold underneath your carpet and create a huge mess for you to eliminate. Unfortunately, it can also be difficult to determine whether or not it exists in your home.  Damp basements and rooms with insufficient ventilation can provide areas for mold to grow in. Signs that indicate the presence of carpet mold include: Musty Odors Higher Incidence of Allergies Damp Carpet Colored Growth on the Carpet Mold Growth Under the Carpet Positive Results from a Mold Testing Kit Regular inspection is the only way to rule out and help you prevent carpet mold. If you have it, get your carpet replaced as soon as possible to prevent any health complications. Odors You should replace your carpet if you smell a foul odor coming from your carpet and nothing is fixing it.  Carpets don’t smell bad, but anything inside the fibers can get trapped and become sources of bad odors. Smells can result from contaminants, mold, and cleaning equipment.  You should regularly clean carpets to keep these smells away, but severe situations will require carpet replacement. Age With good care, carpet should last up to 10 years, but it won’t last forever. After 10 years, the carpet will start to show its age and lose texture and tuft.  If you’ve spent the time carpet cleaning and it still isn’t looking great, it’s time to replace the carpet. If the thought of throwing out carpet bothers you, consider making the most of your old carpet by: Selling it Donating it Recycling it Reusing it Bottom Line If you are experiencing any of these signs, it’s probably time to remove your carpet.

Choosing Carpet for Hotels

Posted by on Feb 5, 2016 in Blog, Carpet, Latest News, Products | Comments Off on Choosing Carpet for Hotels

  Whether you are launching your hotel or doing a general makeover, don’t forget to also change your carpets. Carpets can accentuate your hotel, bring in more color and sophistication, and more importantly, create a sense of grandiosity—giving you the chance to increase your rates. So it is very important when choosing carpet to do it right. There is a science on how to choose carpets that can effectively enhance the value of your hotel and here are two factors that you must consider: Texture The feel of the carpet on your skin is the most important factor in buying carpet—be it for your house, hotel, or office. Thanks to modern technology, carpets are now being manufactured using a variety of materials, from synthetic fibers to polyester, to nylon, and polypropylene. Choose the texture you want for your hotel. Nylon carpet is one of the most popular choices in hotel carpeting because of its durability. It has the power to endure the weight of any furniture without having it damaged. However, nylon carpets are not that good with soil and sunlight unlike polyester and polypropylene. Polyester on the other hand is the softest material. Made from very fine thread, this carpet is more resistant to water, sunlight, and soil compared to nylon. Despite its luxurious feel, this material is much cheaper than nylon. However, durability is often questioned when it comes to poly. And when it comes to affordability and simplicity, choosing carpet that is olefin or polypropylene is your best choice. It’s not prone to soiling and fading, and it’s wear-resistant, too. But like polyester, olefin is not that durable. Appearance Next crucial factor is the design. How does it fit your hotel’s color, theme, and level of sophistication? What look and atmosphere do you want to achieve when your hotel’s fully carpeted? Hotels should bring warmth, comfort, and entertainment, so make sure that your choice of design should meet this basic objectives. When it comes to choosing your hotel’s carpet, make sure to purchase it at a trusted seller like 123Floor. They not only offer the best brands of carpet in the country, they also have hardwood and luxury vinyl for a complete flooring package.
