U.S. Products, manufacturer of carpet extractors with built-in heating systems, foresees nine trends to be aware of in the carpet manufacturing and cleaning industry in 2015.
“Some of these trends have been underway for years and some have already been introduced,” according to Sara Thurston, marketing and communications manager for Nilfisk Advance, which manufactures U.S. Products equipment. “However, consumers, end-customers, and technicians will likely become more aware of them in 2015.”
The nine new and evolving trends foreseen are the following:
1. Carpeting that is more environmentally friendly and made from renewable resources. In some cases, these new greener carpets will even contribute to LEED* credits.
2. “LED” lighted carpet to provide directional lighting – especially in larger facilities such as airports and convention centers – or allowing for advertising to be displayed in the carpet.
3. More carpet cleaning technicians viewing professional training programs as a must to be successful in the industry.
