Frequently Ask Questions

What is the difference between a 'good' carpet and a 'cheap' carpet?

Good carpets are those which retain their "Near New" appearance retention for many years 'use on the floor'. They are graded by the A.C.C.S (The Australian Carpet Classifications Scheme). The higher the ACCS grading the better the carpet for instance the highest commercial grading is C.E.H.D and S (Commercial Extra Heavy Duty and Stairs) while a domestic carpet for a prestige installation should be graded at least R.E.H.D. and S (Residential Extra Heavy Duty and Stairs). The manufacture will back up the performance of a good carpet with a written warranty. A cheap carpet is usually a floor covering built to meet a price and will often not give long term satisfaction.
