The KIDply Backing System features a revolutionary patented technology that clearly establishes our carpets as the quality leader in the educational market for children's rugs.

Why Should Childcare Centers Buy our Rugs Featuring KIDply?

Benefits to the educator...

Looks better longer - helps prevent wrinkling and creasing 
Tougher delimitation tests result in increased durability 
Unmatched softness and flexibility 
Increased sound and thermal insulation performance


Cleaning Suggestions: 
There are a couple of cleaning methods that can be used on the Printed Collection & KIDply Soft Solid carpets:

Whole rug & Spot Cleaning: Over the counter "dry cleaners" will do the job. They are good because they can be vacuumed out of the rug and not leave any residue.

The main thing to avoid is any cleaner with bleach or strong chemicals that would cause the dye to run. It is always good to try an area for colorfastness before using something across a large area of the rug.

DO use approved powdered dry cleaning products 
DO spot test with cleaner, for color fastness before using over larger areas.

When cleaning, always blot, NEVER scrub or rub abrasively. This may create a fuzzy area.
When vacuuming, DO NOT vacuum over serge (which is not covered under warranty). This can cause serge yarn to become frayed, and torn. 

DO NOT use Bonnet System cleaning method 
DO NOT saturate carpet with wet solution 
Please contact us with any questions or 
concerns you may have regarding cleaning or caring for your area rug.

Anti-Microbial Treatment:

The Anti-Microbial treatment is a durable "locked-in chemistry" that is incorporated into the backing composite of our rugs to minimize product deterioration and odors caused by microbial activity.

This floor-covering enhancement means that any spills penetrating below the face of the carpet will come in contact with the antimicrobial treatment, minimizing the opportunity for product-deteriorating microbial activity in the backing or beneath the carpet.

This chemistry has been tested for effectiveness and safety. In addition, this antimicrobial protection remains active for the life of the carpet under normal use conditions for commercial carpet as long as routinely accepted maintenance practices are followed.

Please contact us for recommended cleaning information on children's rugs.

Fire Codes:

Contact your local fire department for more information on fire code requirements.

On all printed Rugs:

NFPA Life Safety Code 101.

Indoor Air Quality:

The following is a statement from the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) concerning indoor air quality with specific reference to allergens:

"Carpet: An IAQ Benefit* - There are several ways in which carpet can actually help improve air quality in schools. With hard-surface flooring, dust, allergens, and other particulates will settle to the floor and collect there. Since school children move through hallways in large groups, they are likely to stir up these particulates and cause them to become suspended in the air at regular intervals during the day. Carpet has many millions of fibers, however, which can keep these particles from being constantly airborne by trapping and holding them until they can be extracted by vacuuming and cleaning. 
In addition, carpet itself requires few chemicals to be used in its cleaning and upkeep. As a result, fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted into classrooms and hallways during carpet cleaning."

The manufacturer is the industry leader in high quality, educational children's rugs. We guarantee that your new carpet will not wear more than 10 percent by abrasion. If this occurs, the manufacturer agrees to replace the carpet subject to its usage schedule. In the event that the identical carpet is not available, you may choose from a selection of carpets of comparable quality.

Damage caused by improper installation, pets, tears, spills, cuts, pilling, shedding, matting, crushing, burns and improper maintenance or cleaning methods are not manufacturing defects and are excluded.

The manufacturer requires the original or other documentation (invoice with purchase date) as proof of warranty coverage. This warranty gives you specific rights. You may have other legal rights which vary from state to state.

In no event shall the manufacturer be liable for incidental or consequential damages, whether in contract, warranty, negligence, strict liability or otherwise. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitations of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

**NOTE: Our serge (end yarn) does not carry a specific warranty. Any sharp object can cut/fray a strand of serge. It is suggested that repairs be made using a hot glue gun.

How Do our Carpets Measure Up?

KIDply Carpet Backing vs. ActionBac DONT BE FOOLED!
CFKs (CarpetsForKids) patented KIDply backing is much stronger and truly helps prevent wrinkling and creasing vs. the so called flexible ActionBac which can wrinkle and not lie flat.

You get more for your money with our carpets. For Example, our 6'9" x 9'5" oval rug measures over 54% larger than our competitor's 5'4" x 7'8" oval rug. Our product is more square feet for your dollar!
