If you have children and/or pets, it’s not a matter of if, but when your carpet will undergo some wear and tear.
Is there a way to minimize, or even prevent, that damage?
One of the biggest decisions you face when choosing a new carpet isn’t color, brand, or style. Instead, it’s choosing a durable, highly resistant carpet that will maintain its quality—no matter how many children and pets you have!
Whether it’s dirt your dog dragged in, or juice spilled by toddlers, here are three types of carpets that can maintain their quality best:
Opt for a Synthetic Fiber Carpet
Choosing a carpet is an investment. And, choosing the perfect carpet that meets your family’s demanding needs takes time—but you can drastically narrow it down by choosing a synthetic (as opposed to ‘natural’) fiber carpet!
Nylon is a highly resistant carpet choice, and a great one for homes that have toddlers, pets and teenagers spilling and stomping across it. Nylon carpets are very sturdy, as the synthetic fibers hold their shape well, and especially in comparison to other materials, such as the loop style Berber carpet (which can easily snag). While nylon may be a bit higher in cost than other fibers, it offers a longer lasting color—even in high traffic homes.
Do you want a carpet that is stain resistant but you feel overwhelmed with options? A carpet made from polyester fabric is stain resistant, and with softness that other carpets don’t have. It holds up well for busy families that want the inviting feel of carpet, without sacrificing quality.
Choose a Medium Shade Carpet
Are you looking for the right carpet to put in your children’s play room, or the hallway? Keeping your carpets looking brand new is a priority, and when you choose a medium shaded one, it doesn’t have to be a struggle. As a general rule of thumb, stay away from dark carpets, as well as those that are light in color. Live in that middle ground – you’ll be glad that you did.
