Soft flooring for your home
What to consider when choosing carpet:
It is important to carefully consider your lifestyle when making a decision on carpeting.
If you have pets and/or a busy family you will require a carpet that can withstand higher amounts of traffic and that has increased stain resistance. They may also choose to look for carpets that are close in color to their pets (less showing of pet hair on the carpet) or that tend to hide dirt easily
Nylon and polyester both resist stains; nylon, however, needs stain protectant, while polyester has a low absorption rate, giving inherent resistance, but polyester is considered less resilient than nylon.
So how can you compare different products?
Be sure that they are made of the same fiber, they are the same style and quality. Also, compare the manufacturers’ warranty on the carpets. If one carpet has a 10-year warranty and the other has a 20-year warranty, you are obviously not looking at the same quality of carpet.
NOTE: We cannot stress it enough: your carpet is only as good as your underpad. If you are working on a tight budget, We highly recommend spending a bit less on the carpet and a bit more on the underpad. A lower-quality carpet will look, feel and perform better with a high-grade underpad.
