Matching The Carpet To Your Needs

So to choose the best carpet for your needs, first arm yourself with all of the right information because the more you know, the better choices you will make.

Facility Profile: The first step is to clearly define the specific requirements of the facility. Some things to consider include:

  • Type of facility and the specific area receiving new carpet.
  • How long the carpet will be used (life cycle).
  • Types of dirt that may be tracked into the facility.
  • Is the area remodeled or a new installation?
  • Will access to the subfloor be required?
  • Is there modular furniture in the space?

Location Profile: To maximize performance, you first must also determine where the carpet is going to be installed. Not every carpet is suitable in every location.

Below are some location-specific questions to ask:

  • On a typical day, will there be spills and stains or dirt tracked into the building? If so, what type of spills? Food stains? Coffee or chemical spills?
  • What will the frequency of spills be? Excessive? Occasional?
  • What about moisture? Do you need a moisture-permeable or impermeable backing?
  • Will there be exposure to harsh chemicals, intense sunlight, or atmospheric contaminants (such as nitrous oxides or ozone)?
  • Will there be lots of foot traffic? Wheelchairs? Supply carts?
