The carpet found in schools is a sizable investment. Proper maintenance is key in extending the life of the carpet and safeguarding such a huge investment. Many school districts are always looking for ways to stretch the budget and keep their schools in a clean atmosphere conducive to learning. Carpet Dye-Tech is here to share some tips that will help extend the life of carpets in schools.
Choose the Right Carpet Type
The first place to start is selecting the right carpet. When cheap carpet is placed in schools, the lifespan isn’t near as long. Experience shows us that low profile, densely tufted, tight looped, nylon carpet is the best choice for schools. With the high amount of traffic that walks the halls and classrooms in a school each day, you will be better off having quality carpet installed that you can count on lasting at least a couple of decades before replacement is necessary.
Vacuum Carpet Often
You want the carpet in schools to not only last, but stay clean as well. The most effective way to remove dirt and dust from carpet fibers is with the right vacuum. High traffic areas and entryways should be vacuumed each day after school ends. Classrooms can withstand a good vacuuming every other day. However, regular vacuuming is one of the most important things that can be done to extend the life of carpet.
Use Large Entrance Mats & Runners
Entry mats will do wonders in extending the life of the carpet in schools. Believe it or not, a properly sized entry mat will remove up to 85% of the dirt and debris found on the bottom of shoes that come into the school. The key is choosing entry mats that are large enough. The most effective mats are up to 15 ft. wide and should never be less than 6 ft. wide.
Importance of Professional Color Revival Carpet Cleaning
Carpet in schools should be cleaned at least twice a year. This should be done as the school year is starting and again during the holiday break while student as well as faculty are out of the building. This is essential in keeping the carpet clean and stain free when so many students are roaming the halls. A great solution to carpet fading and discoloration is color revival carpet cleaning where a carpet dyeing company like Carpet Dye-Tech can apply a small amount of dye as we clean.
