School Carpet: Guide to Selection and Care.
Gilliland, John W.
Information regarding the selection and care of carpeting is needed by educational leaders, maintenance personnel, and carpet manufacturers. Serious problems are developing along with the use of carpeting. The selection and maintenance of carpet are important problem areas. To help meet the need for more information regarding the maintenance of carpet, data were collected from 75 school attendance centers in seven States. Approximately 56 acres or 2,433,000 square feet of carpeting were included in the study. Data were collected from school centers located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, New York, Tennessee, and Texas. Information regarding the use of carpet in schools was based on data that were collected on the spot in the 75 buildings and on the results of interviews with administrators, teachers, and maintenance workers to discover what methods worked.
