"Do You See What I See?"
Is Photo 1 from a residential or commercial job site? Is there a problem with the carpet raveling at the edges? Would you have done something different from the installation side to minimize the appearance of the fraying carpet edge? Does this appear to be a high-traffic area?
Photos 2, 2a and 3 are the same installation, just different areas, tile and carpet. But the same questions should be asked here as well. Also, should the maintenance personnel cut the ends of yarn off flush with the carpet or try to vacuum them up? Will the loops or frayed yarn ever stop coming out? Maybe there is something wrong with this carpet? Ok, I’m being a little sarcastic but I’m at a loss for words here.
Photo 4 shows another area but with the addition of? Wait just a minute, I think I see…yep, looks like seam sealer to me.
Photo 6 is what has happened and what will eventually happen to every edge where the carpet meets the tile. You can see that the exposed edge of the tile is all chipped up from the sweeper banging into it. You can also see the missing yarn all the way down to the primary backing. And just to be sure we are on the same page, this is a commercial glue direct, three-year-old job.
Photo 7 should interest all of us; it’s smack dab in the middle of a long hallway in a commercial glue direct installation. But something is amiss here, the colors off a bit? No, that’s not it.
