A carpet is a textile floor covering. It consist of an upper layer of pile attached to a backing. The pile is typically either made from wool or synthetic fibre such as polypropylene, nylon or polyester. The tufts are often twisted and heat treated to maintain their structure.
Woven carpet is produced on a loom and can have cut pile or loop pile. There are new styles of carpet which combine the two styles, called cut and loop carpeting. Colored yarns are commonly used in the weaving process to produce intricate patterns.
Needlefelt carpet is produced by intermingling and felting individual synthetic fibers using barbed and forked needles. The results is an extremely durable carpet. Needlefelt carpets are commonly found in places with a lot of human traffic such as hotels and restaurants.
A knotted pile carpet has structural weft threads which alternate with a supplementary weft that rises at right angles to the surface of the weave. This supplementary weft is attached to the warp by knots types to form the pile of the carpet. Kashmir carpets, Oriental rugs and Oriental carpets are often knotted by hands.
A tufted carpet has its pile injected into a backing material. The backing material is bonded to a secondary backing made of a woven hessian weave or a man made alternative to provide stability. This is the most common method of manufacturing of domestic carpets for floor covering purposes.

Preparation of the Mopping Area
Set up necessary caution signs to alert other users of the area on wet mopping is conducted. Shift all unnecessary furniture/objects away. Remove other dust/dirt by vacuuming
Vacuuming / Dust mopping the entire area
Follow the vacuuming / dust mopping procedure to remove all unwanted objects from the mopping area.
Ready for wet mopping
Prevent over wetting your mop by wringing it. An overly wet mop will result in spreading the dirt on the area instead of sticking the dirt onto your mop. Commence your mopping in the corner furthest from the door. Split the mopping area into 4/6 areas and concentrate on one area before moving to the next. Mop from the areas furthest to nearest the door to prevent stepping on the mopped areas. Rinse your dirty mop in a clear water pail before dipping it in the detergent pail. Dirty solution will only move dirt from one area to another, it will not remove it from the floor. Ensure your detergent is diluted in the optimal ratio to maximize your mopping efficiency. Use floor blower/fan to reduce drying time for the area.
It is important to thoroughly clean your pails after using to prevent leftover water from previous mopping sessions to contaminate your current one. Leave the pails upside down to speed up thorough drying and also to prevent mosquito breeding.
