A carpet can do wonders by simply showcasing it’s overflowing beauty in one’s property, be it a home, an establishment or even a hotel. This could also mean as a display of one’s interests in the interior designs especially if the management has a plain solid color carpet to show more of the properties’ inner beauty. On the other hand, patterned carpets (not including the traditional patterns) also exude luxury and modernity for the hotel.
Talking about benefits that the carpets can give, do you know that it can do most protection on your floors, most especially to the things made of glass inside the rooms? It prevents fragile items to be broken if accidentally dropped. Giving you the first reason above as to why carpets are beneficial, here are the other reasons to look at to maintain your carpeting in the hotel.
Why carpets are important for hotels?
In hospitality, carpets play a huge role in providing comfort, safety and the overall well being of the guests. That being said, it makes it feel like it’s a whole new world especially for hotels of great brands. One importance of the carpets is its sound-absorbing property. Walls surely provide less noise and prevent other guests from complaining about loud noises that bother the neighboring rooms but the carpets contribute to creating sound resistant rooms. So, if your partner or your family decided to go on vacation and stay at a hotel watching the creepiest movie currently available, screams and other noises can be filtered out by the walls and the carpets. Of course, we don’t want secret conversations to be heard by someone next door. Another important contribution of having carpets on the floors is that it makes everyone feel at home. As long as you have the right carpeting, the right designs to match the property’s overall image, it will give each guest the idea of home and how it’s like to be as comfortable as they were back where they live. As hotels are considered our second home when we visit other places, we surely want the best carpets in terms of quality and design.
For people who suffer health issues such as allergies, according to the German Allergy and Asthma Association (DAAB), The percentage of the fine dust in a room with carpeting is extremely lower than a room with no carpeting at all (eg. wood floors, vinyl, marbled or tiled). Having carpets in the room gives off the assurance of having less to no allergic reactions.
In terms of temperature, if the floors are made of wood, vinyl or if it’s tiled, wearing hotel slippers doesn’t give protection on your feet at all. You will still feel the cold temperature because of the bare flooring. If there are carpets, you get to protect your feet from the cold temperature. Being exposed to the cold floors can numb your feet which is painful. Having carpets is like having a guard for your feet even if you have the slippers. If a carpet is already in a state that it can no longer be repaired due to its age (the maximum age in its life span), we replaced the carpets. Having carpet means, it can be easily replaced unlike having the bare floorings. If you have tiled floors and have cracks on it, it can be difficult for one area to be replaced unless you got to destroy that area again for you to rebuild or re-install it which is costly. The labor for the carpet replacements (the installation process) are cheaper compared to any other type of flooring, therefore, it helps not only the hotel but the whole management. They pay and worry less.
How often is carpet restoration needed?
As much as carpet cleaning is necessary, carpet restoration is also important and plays a huge role in the wellness of the carpets. Most of the time, guests leave their rooms with stains like wine stains and even burn marks and cleaning is not sufficient to maintain a good looking carpet for the rooms (or even in the hallways). Restoration is needed as soon as there are burn marks, visible stains, and discoloration caused by bleaching. It’s better to keep your carpets alive looking by repairing it so it doesn’t cause any trouble such as getting negative feedback. If the budget is the problem for carpet restoration, you don’t need to worry as there are companies who are more than willing to discuss payment methods and duration. Get that carpet restored by all means.
Knowing the types of carpet material for a better understanding of the carpet restoration process
There are a lot of types of materials which carpets are being made from. Let’s focus on these types: Nylon, Olefin, Polyester, Acrylic, Wool, and Triexta. Nylon is considered as a really good carpet material because if its ability to resist stains. It’s a very good material considering how costly it would be to replace carpets due to fast aging caused by problems such as stains. Thou nylon can emit toxic gases, you’ll only need to leave it for a few hours after installation and nylon made carpets are good to go. Olefin is a synthetic fiber and can emit toxic gases like nylon fiber. The Olefin fiber is being used as a wallpaper aside from the carpets. it’s good for creating ropes, it’s also a good floor cover since it has the same resistance as the nylon. Both are good choices to avoid carpet stains. Polyester is somehow an affordable type of fiber. It’s also one of one the most common choices for carpeting but the downside for this type is that it has low durability so it tends to get crushed or break or get worn out after a few years only. Wool can resist dirt however, it appears to be expensive as it is a sturdy type of material and is very durable.Acrylic fiber is good and has incredible resistance to moth, chemicals, and oil. It is a man-made fiber. It is softer than wool. Lastly, Triexta is a material that is similar to Polyester and is as strong as nylon.
