Carpet care, cleaning and stain removal
"Carpet is the only textile product people walk on and special consideration to color, pattern and texture minimizes maintenance. Light and bright colors tend to show soil readily; whereas soil is less noticeable on colors that contain some gray values. Patterns, likewise, camouflage dirt and soil until it can be removed. High and low pile combinations, random tip shears and shags add interest as well as help conceal soil. In less traffic prone areas where soiling and spill rates are considerably lower, plain, lighter and brighter carpet can be used."--First paragraph.
