Commercial vs Residential – Carpet Differences

Commercial vs Residential – Carpet Differences

commercial carpet If you have ever wondered what the difference between commercial-grade carpet and residential carpet is, then look no more. Today’s post from Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane is about exactly that. We know carpet inside and out, and we clean it all. Below is the five main differences between the carpet you find in your work office, and the carpet you choose to get laid in your home.

Appearance

Firstly, the way it looks is the main difference. When you choose carpet for your home, the range of piles and colours and styles is almost overwhelming. With commercial carpet, the main priority is functionality and durability while giving a professional look. With colour choices there is a preference for lighter shades in residential spaces, giving the illusion of space and light. In commercial spaces which are quite a bit larger, darker colours are favoured for their stain-hiding ability. Patterns are more frequent in a commercial setting, whereas solid colours are more commonly used in homes.

Comfort

Comfort is the second main difference. In a home setting, you want the carpet to be soft and plush underfoot. This means the fibres will be longer and softer. The underlay will be a cushioning one to assist in reducing sound and increasing comfort. In a commercial building the pile length is likely to be shorter and coarser to increase it’s durability. Which brings us to the third difference.

Durability

Durability is the third difference. Commercial carpet has a much higher foot traffic than the average residential home. This makes durability the biggest consideration in an office building. The shorter fibres mentioned under comfort also contribute to the longer life span of the carpet. the shorter the fibre, the less there is to get flattened and worn out from people walking over it every day.

Ease of Cleaning

Cleaning the carpet is the fourth. Office carpet will require much more frequent cleaning via vacuuming than the average home. Once again, shorter fibres means less depth for dirt and debris to get in, making vacuuming easier and quicker for cleaners. Depending on the office environment, deep cleaning will also need to be done more frequently, so the carpet has to be able to withstand that as well.

Lifespan

Lastly, along with durability, commercial carpet is expected to not only last a long time under harsh conditions, but also look good for just as long. The expectation is that it should last under these conditions for at least 10 years, if not more.

Regular cleaning and maintenance from a company like Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning will assist in keeping your carpets clean and in top condition. It doesn’t matter if it’s residential or commercial, we will do everything we can to bring it to life! Why not contact us now to see what we can do?

Nylon – The Fibre With Many Uses

Nylon – The Fibre With Many Uses

carpets Nylon is a fantastic fibre that is commonly used in many forms of carpet. The advantages of nylon include being extremely durable to wear and tear and having a long life span compared to other types of carpet fibres. It is also easy to clean and is stain and dirt-resistant. Perfect for a floor-covering that is required to look nice and add to the decor of your home!

Nylon is such a versatile fibre that it also has many uses that you may not have thought of! Nylon was developed during WWII as a cheaper substitute  for silk. It was used for parachutes, and women’s hosiery. It was also used for women’s clothing, and nightwear into the 1960’s when other types of synthetics were developed.  While it is rarely used in clothing today, it’s main use is in carpeting.

Other items that nylon is used in include;

  • Tooth brush bristles
  • Dental floss
  • Some shoe laces
  • Fishing nets
  • Socks
  • Women’s stockings
  • Air conditioning filters used at home/office/cars etc.
  • Camping tents

The Winter Olympics Are On!

The Winter Olympics Are On!

 The 2018 Winter Olympics are being held right now in PyeongChang, China.  In light of this big event dominating the media, the team at Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane thought we’d share some information about it. Most people already know the Olympics are held every 4 years in various countries. What might not be known, is that there are two categories of Olympics, Summer and Winter, which are staggered. This means that if you include both categories, they are held every two years.

Sports are divided in to two categories, summer and winter. Winter events include sports like bobsledding, various forms of ice-skating and skiing, snow boarding and ice hockey. Although Australia has hosted the summer Olympics twice (1956 & 2000), it has never held a winter Olympics to date. While it is quite popular, Winter Olympics gain less attention than the Summer ones, possibly due to a less broad range of sports.

Interested in keeping track of what’s happening during the event? We’ve included a live link here to help keep you up-to-date.

Carpet, Upholstery, Rugs….Why Deep Clean Them?

Carpet, Upholstery, Rugs….Why Deep Clean Them?

 This is a common question the team at Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane frequently gets asked! “Why regularly deep clean our rugs/carpets/upholstery? Won’t spot cleaning and vacuuming do just as good a job?” In short, the answer is not really. While your surfaces might look clean on the surface, vacuuming and spot cleaning areas won’t get deep down into the fibres and make it really clean.

So, what are the benefits?

Getting your floor rugs cleaned regularly can massively improve their appearance. While regular vacuuming can keep the surface dust & debris free, getting the whole rug thoroughly cleaned will invigorate the fibres and brighten them. This will also help prevent the signs of wear and tear appearing as quickly.

With upholstery, you spend a lot of time sitting or laying on it. Couches and chairs are usually the central piece of furniture for family time. Even with regular vacuuming, bacteria can still live in the fabric. As well as all the deep-down dirt and crumbs that inevitably build up behind the cushions, sticky fingers and hidden spills that make the fabric a breeding ground for it.

 

The last reason is bugs and allergens. Vacuum cleaners do a good everyday job, but to thoroughly sanitise and eradicate them, regular thorough cleaning is the key.

We hope this has shed some light on why regular cleaning of your carpets, rugs and upholstery is beneficial. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for a free quote and fabulous deals and discounts!
