GSA (U.S. General Services Administration)

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) serves as the purchasing arm for the U.S. government. Broadloom carpet and carpet tile purchased by the government must meet the Gold Level certification requirements of the NSF/ANSI 140 standard as part of the GSA’s overall Sustainable Acquisition Goals. GSA requires that all flooring options purchased through the agency must meet sustainability requirements.

Approved Types of Flooring

The GSA approves other types of flooring as well such as carpet padding, luxury vinyl tile, and sheet vinyl. The flooring options available are under the Schedule 72 – Furnishings and Floor Coverings on the U.S. General Services Administration website. We sell many GSA approved products from companies such as Shaw, Mohawk, Interface, Mannington, and other manufacturers.

Interface Carpet

Stylish Designs of Carpet and LVT

Interface may manufacture carpet, but they sell design. As one of the most trusted names in commercial carpet tile, Interface has led the industry in design, sustainability, and high performance carpet tile. Carpet Express is excited to offer Interface Carpets to our customers. Call 800-922-5582 today!

Interface Carpet

Interface specializes in less is more. The company uses fewer resources and constantly strives to use more sustainable flooring solutions. The company introduced TacTiles, which are a glue-free installation system. TacTiles adheres carpet tiles to one another to create a “floating” floor, which provides better flexibility. The company also created Cool Carpet, which is their climate-neutral carpet tile program. This program zeros out all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the entire life cycle of the carpet tile. Interface also has Intersept, which is a powerful preservative that is safe and effective at protecting carpet tile from mold growth and odors. In addition, the company uses ART, their proprietary Appearance Retention Test that effectively stimulates years of soiling, wear, and routine maintenance to test the durability of their carpet tiles.

Interface focuses on a business model that is renewable, cyclical, and benign. The company focuses on new technologies and systems that reduce or eliminate waste and harmful emissions. They also increase the use of renewable materials and energy sources. The company’s Mission Zero promise is to eliminate any negative impact the company has on the environment by 2020.

Clean The Most Common Carpet Stains of Schools and Homes

There are many ways to clean stains from carpets, but sometimes the stain doesn’t completely get cleaned out. No matter what type of cleaner or how many times you scrub the carpet, the stain will still not come out. Both schools and homes deal with a lot of the same stains, and the best thing to do is to buy a stain-proof carpet. Stain-proof carpets are easier to clean and do not have a residual stain because of the protection systems built into the fibers of the carpet. A list of some stain-proof carpet options will be listed at the bottom of this blog.

Back to School Sale

Don’t miss out on our Back to School Flooring Sale! Equip your home with the latest in stain resistant flooring.

For now, here are some of the most common carpet stains in schools and homes. A letter will coordinate with each item and at the end of the list will be information on how to clean each stain. Keep in mind that the faster a stain can be treated the better chance you have at removal.

Chewing Gum

E. Waxes & Gums: Freeze with ice or a commercially available product in a spray can. Shatter with a blunt object and immediately vacuum the pieces. Repeat as necessary.

Chocolate

First, blot the area with a white cotton cloth or a paper towel. Next, apply a solution of house-hold ammonia to one quart of water. Use a spray bottle to apply some of the solution to the spot, and then keep repeating the blotting and solution process.

Sodas

First, blot the area with a white cotton cloth or a paper towel. Next, apply a solution of liquid dish-washing detergent to one quart of water. Use a spray bottle to apply some of the solution to the spot, and then keep repeating the blotting and solution process.

Crayon Markers

Blot as much as possible with a cloth or paper towel. Apply dry cleaning fluid or a citrus-based solvent to a white cotton cloth. CAUTION: Do not apply the solvent directly to the carpet pile as permanent damage will occur. Use rubber gloves and adequate ventilation.

Grease from food

First, blot the area with a white cotton cloth or a paper towel. Next, apply a solution of liquid dish-washing detergent to one quart of water. Use a spray bottle to apply some of the solution to the spot, and then keep repeating the blotting and solution process. In the case of pizza with tomato sauce, you may have to repeat the process using house-hold ammonia instead of detergent for the second treatment. This will ensure the strong colors won’t stain your carpet permanently.

Pen Ink

Blot as much as possible with a cloth or paper towel. Apply dry cleaning fluid or a citrus-based solvent to a white cotton cloth. CAUTION: Do not apply the solvent directly to the carpet pile as permanent damage will occur. Use rubber gloves and adequate ventilation.

Milk

First, blot the area with a white cotton cloth or a paper towel. Next, apply a solution of liquid dish-washing detergent to one quart of water. Use a spray bottle to apply some of the solution to the spot, and then keep repeating the blotting and solution process.

Paint (oil)

Blot as much as possible with a cloth or paper towel. Apply dry cleaning fluid or a citrus-based solvent to a white cotton cloth. CAUTION: Do not apply the solvent directly to the carpet pile as permanent damage will occur. Use rubber gloves and adequate ventilation.

Mustard

Water Soluble Stains: First, blot the area with a white cotton cloth or a paper towel. Next, apply a solution of liquid dish-washing detergent to one quart of water. Use a spray bottle to apply some of the solution to the spot, and then keep repeating the blotting and solution process.

Vomit

This is definitely the worst option to try to clean from carpet, but do not worry! The mess, the stain, and the odor can be cleaned up. First, blot the area with a white cotton cloth or a paper towel. Next, apply a solution of white vinegar to one quart of water. Use a spray bottle to apply some of the solution to the spot, and then keep repeating the blotting and solution process.

Bourbon Street II is our most popular stain-proof carpet, and it is part of the Showcase Collection! This carpets full-handed fluffiness and stain resistance makes it a perfect choice for families.
