Commercial Carpet  Chart 1 
©1988-2016 [ Copyright Statement]

Before you rip out your old carpet and rip open your checkbook for new carpet, review the chart below. There is no need to replace your existing carpet prematurely.

Here's why: Now there is an intelligent alternative for solving your commercial carpet problems. Most established sophisticated and upwardly mobile companies recognize the value of "inside curb appeal". Carpet is almost always the greatest portion of the visible presentation of your property. Carpet is the canvas on which you portray your company's image. 

Carpet is great! It is the preferred floor covering in 90% of all upscale commercial properties. For decor, acoustics, safety, comfort, cost effectiveness and overall ambiance, carpet is the best choice. Top quality commercial carpet is obvious in appearance and truly enhances all decor. The higher the perception of carpet quality, the higher the perceived image of the property. 

Since carpet is the most visible and vulnerable furnishing on your property, it makes sense to know about carpet quality and carpet care. You can invest large sums of money in furniture and fixtures to enhance your property and still not gain the desired image and visitor perception if the carpet is a distraction. 

So make sure that you are buying the very best carpet for your property. That means high grade commercial Nylon or Wool. Select colors carefully for image and functionality. Assign someone in your organization to study and understand carpet selection, warranties, maintenance, expected life cycle and color care. 

To begin this educational process, review the chart below. It displays the traditional "Life Cycle" for commercial carpet. Then, following the chart, compare your current carpet situation to the example in the chart. You will quickly recognize the benefits and advantages of the Color Your Carpet® carpet dyeing and color restoration services for your property. 

Section 1 of the chart demonstrates the typical commercial carpet "life cycle" propaganda used by certain manufacturers and retailers to promote the viability of carpeted floor covering and covers a period of 6 years. It shows how you should arrive at an annual cost. In this example the annual cost is $81,000 using an initial cost of $36 per square yard of carpet alone. (This is a medium grade commercial carpet cost. In Class A facilities, carpet cost per square yard can vary upwards to more than $100 per square yard.) 

While facility managers and property budget analysts usually factor in their idea of what the cleaning cost should be, they usually neglect to factor in other costs like installation, padding, under-floor preparation, removal and discard fees, landfill fees, taxes, related insurance fees, downtime of revenue generating property or office productivity lost from disruption of installation or removal. 

In Section 2 they tell you to perform the exercise with the number of years they tell you that the particular grade of carpet they want you to buy will last. In this case we are using 24 years. But they usually multiply the annual number times 30 or 40 years. And yes, the carpet, if a high grade Nylon it will truly last that long without any significant fiber loss. But here, we are showing that the carpet is replaced about every 6 years. 

Did the carpet fail to last as expected because of premature "wear"? - Not at all! The carpet "uglied out", or the color became outdated. or it "appeared" worn out because it was matted down, faded or stained. Whatever the reason, if you want to keep your carpet looking new, lively, current and attractive to your staff and visitors, you will often opt to buy new carpet when it is not necessary because you want to maintain the company image.

In this example, with a total cost of $1,944,000 spent during the 24 years period, even though the property owner has kept his floor covering budget to $81,000 per year overall, it could have been far less to achieve the same results with the Color Your Carpet® "Planned Color Care" program.

The last section (Section 3) exposes the myth that you have received your money's worth on quality commercial Nylon carpet, that for ANY reason other than total destruction of the property including the carpet, if you don't get at least 20 years of day-to-day, beautiful, attractive looking, lively appearance and useful life from it on your property. 

In conclusion, by "pre-cycling" the original carpet with our unique carpet dyeing services, the annual cost is reduced to $35,380 for a 24 year total cost of $849,000.

This is an annual savings of $45,620 and a total savings of $1,094,880 during the 24 year period! 

Whether your property is 10 times larger or 10 times smaller than the example below, you can realize the same savings proportionately as this model clearly demonstrates.
