Specify a cleaning and maintenance plan.

Regardless of how well designed and thought out your specification is, the carpet will not last without proper cleaning and care. When developing a specification, it is a good idea to understand the end user’s cleaning and maintenance abilities, as well as their expectations, and incorporate those into your plan. A quality maintenance company should also provide you and the end user with an outline for a preventative maintenance plan to help ensure optimal long term performance for your selections.
