Tungsten Quicksilver Commercial Remnant 5123 Pentz is a 26-ounce textured loop polyester. Quicksilver is commercially rated and carefully constructed for high foot traffic. 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 that can be prone to crushing and distorted by high levels of foot traffic.
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 isn’t expected to last anywhere near as long with that much wear and tear.
Pentz uses the process of solution dying on all its carpet. 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.
Quicksilver Collection is a glue-down installation. Mapei 373 Eco is great for this application.
