Carpet instructions have many roles, and must maintain a non-biased position at all times. As part of their job, they must look at carpeting to see if it is performing according to industry standards or if there is something problematic about it. A carpet inspector will assess the carpet in a location and then provide feedback based on their expert opinion.
Carpet inspectors should be independent and certified, so that the commissioning party is sure that their results are to be trusted. They should have plenty of experience in the carpeting industry and present an honest and reasonable conclusion. They must not sway the commissioning party to action one way or the other. Also, they must not advocate for one position over another. Instead, they must rely on their well-rounded experiences to uncover what is happening with the carpet.
A certified carpet inspector should not make repair recommendations as part of their non-biased assessment. They should merely provide an analysis of the basic assessment focusing on any visible defects, adhesive problems, hidden defects, installation issues, performance issues, cleaning analysis, and more. They use their knowledge of established industry standards to uncover the facts of the situation. The carpet inspector should not make repair recommendations unless they are specifically asked to by the commissioning party.
