While a carpet can add the perfect touch of elegance and character to a restaurant's interior design, maintenance is always a primary concern when choosing the right fibres for the dining area. Let's face it; in a restaurant, spills and falling food are inevitable, not to mention the oils that the waiting staff track out of the kitchen and the dust and dirt that the customers track in from the streets. With the wrong fibres or improper maintenance, the natural process of oxidation will easily ruin your carpet and your investment and basically ruin the ambience of your business.
More than in any other setting, selecting a carpet for a restaurant is all about function; colours and visual appeal come in second. You can't have carpets that are too high maintenance but it's also a bad idea to invest in carpets that look cheap. Your best bet is to go for carpets with structural backing such as nylon and other synthetic fibres. Their structural backing creates a barrier that stops moisture and dirt from seeping in too deeply in the carpet, making carpet cleaning easier and faster. They can still give that soft, warm appearance without needing constant attention.
With the help of professional carpet cleaning, you can keep your carpets looking as great as the day you bought them for years. By properly maintaining your carpet, you're also extending its lifespan and protecting it from the friction and damage that comes from dust and dirt particles. You can have a safe and healthy environment at your restaurant that also looks good and appealing; it's a win-win situation.
