How can I tell if a carpet will wear well?
The Carpet Institute of Australia has developed the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme (ACCS). It’s a voluntary industry labelling and grading system for carpets of all fibres and is used by all the major suppliers.
An ACCS label gives the carpet a star-rating out of six for residential use and four for commercial or contract use, indicating how well it performed in a number of independently assessed wear and performance tests.
What’s the best underlay?
*Foam underlay is manufactured from largely recycled material, the higher density grades provide great acoustic and thermal insulation.
Most good quality foam underlays are treated with anti-microbial agents, to inhibit bacterial and fungal growth and protect against germs and allergies.
*Felt underlay is manufactured from jute, hessian or re-cycled clothing material, it is not used much anymore but is the best product to help smooth out a rough sub floor.
*Rubber underlay has increased dramatically in price during the last few years. It is the best underlay to use over in-slab heating as it allows the heat to pass through to the air, this however also means that it is not a great thermal insulation material.
How do I know my floor covering will be laid properly?
Flooring must be laid in accordance with Australian Standards and backed up with a comprehensive installation guarantee. Insist upon a lifetime installation warranty.
Where should the joins in my carpet be placed?
Joins in the wrong places may not only look bad but also can also be potential wear areas. In the future you may have to replace your whole carpet area for just a few small wear spots. If possible joins should be placed away from windows where falling light could show them up, and they also shouldn’t be in high-traffic walkways such as corridors.
Ask your retailer to see the installation plan and check the placement of cross-joins and seams in the carpet.
