When Choosing A Carpet

When choosing a carpet, three things need to be considered:

Traffic: Try to determine your families usage. Is it heavy, moderate, or light? Since carpet does not come with an odometer like a car, it is hard to quantify exactly how much traffic it receives. Young active growing families create more wear than a retire couple. Families with pets will require a more durable carpet than those without.

Stain Resistance: A carpet in a dining room will have different stain resistance requirements than one in a bedroom. Again, a young active family will probably generate more spills than a mature one. You need to consider these questions: Where is your carpet going to be installed? What products are going to be used over it?

Budget: Some carpets represent excellent pricing, but in a high traffic area may not result in the best value for your flooring dollar. When shopping for carpeting it is best to determine the type of traffic your family will generate, what are potential stain problems and what your budget allow. Determine what you can afford to spend, set yourself a budget and then find the best value based on your families requirements.
