The inspection was done after the conclusion of the football season. So, what is your first impression? Can a conclusion be reached based on what can be seen here? Who is responsible for the carpet changing colors?
You make the call!
Care to take a stab at it? Try “Nothing” and “Never.” The carpet was treated to a simple vacuuming every day, and that is it. And while this may get some of you laughing, it happens more often than you think.
What other factors might have negatively affected the carpet? Look closely at the photos; what is missing at the entryways? Besides a lack of regular maintenance, there is no preventive maintenance being performed. In this case, there are no walk-off mats at either the main entrance or the kitchen entrance. While it is impossible to keep all the grease in the kitchen, a walk-off mat will do wonders in slowing it down. The same goes for the main entrance, where a mat would help lower the amount of soil and debris being brought in from outside.
Deciding which cleaning method is best employed to rectify this situation is the next step, but that is another story for another day. Suffice it to say that using the system recommended by the manufacturer is always the best course of action.
And action is just what this carpet needs.
