Deepsea Scholarship Commercial Remnant 5362 by Mohawk is a 26-ounce weight ColorStrand nylon. ColorStrand is Mohawk’s proprietary brand of solution-dyed nylon. So, what is solution-dyed? Solution-dyed is kind of like the color of a carrot. When you cut a carrot, the color is orange. The color remains the same throughout the carrot. This carpet works the same way. To clarify, solution-dyed means the color goes all the way through the fiber. As a result, the color is beautiful and vivid for the life of the carpet. The color won’t fade, wear off or stain. But that’s not all.
Solution-dyed carpet makes cleaning spills easy. Using a 50/50 solution of bleach and water, you can spot clean hard stains like wine. By using the solution, you can blot the stain with no fading or damage to the carpet.

Carefully constructed for high foot traffic, Scholarship Collection is a commercially rated carpet. Consequently, this is why you see a commercial carpet in office buildings and retail stores. For this reason, it normally has a shorter pile height. Residential carpet typically has Longer fibers. This is why it is prone to crushing. Put simply, the more packed your carpet pile, the denser it is. It can also be distorted by high levels of foot traffic. When you walk on carpet, carpet fibers bend and rub against each other. This causes friction which wears away at the fibers. However, the closer the carpet piles are packed, the less it will move. Less movement in your carpet pile means less friction. The less wear the longer your carpet will last.
Typically, you will find a wider range of colors and styles options for residential carpet compared with commercial carpet. In busy commercial spaces, dark-colored patterns are a popular choice. Dark patterns are traditionally more forgiving than solid colors. Marks and stains over time will blend in with the patterns.
The biggest difference between residential and commercial grade carpet is Expectation. What is a person’s expectation when purchasing a commercial carpet? Commercial grade carpet needs to retain a beautiful appearance for several years. It also needs to provide a well maintained and professional atmosphere. However residential carpet, with that much wear and tear, isn’t expected to last anywhere near as long.
