THE IDENTIFICATION OF CARPET FAULTS

Written by Dr Eric M. Brown, The Identification of Carpet Faults was first published in 1989 as companion to Diagnostic Techniques for the Investigation of Carpet Complaints and Case Studies for Carpet Inspectors. The book covers all aspects of carpet faults including tools and equipment, colour changes and shading, soil, insect damage, testing methods and industry standards.

A new edition published in 2004 and reprinted in 2007 includes many illustrations that were not available in the earlier edition.
