For the homeowner who has an active household, a couple kids, and a dog, getting high-traffic carpet is a little tricky.
Most people will tell you that installing carpet in a busy home is a bad idea and you'd be better off with a different flooring product. But that's a no-go in your mind. You're deadest on getting carpet.
With a little knowledge and a good installation crew, carpet can work in your busy home. To make this easy to figure out, we'll tell you exactly what you should look for in a durable carpet.
No one wants a urine-smelling stain-filled carpet sitting in their home, and we don't want that for you either. Do you really want to spend a bunch of money constantly cleaning dirty carpet? If you don't, then keep reading.
Your carpet will most likely face heavy foot traffic, soil intrusion, spills, and maybe the occasional pet accident. That's a lot to handle.
With that in mind, your best bet is to look for carpet in the nylon family. Nylon fiber is a durable and hard-wearing material that will stand up to the beatings that life will dish out.
Nylon is resilient and bounces back under harsh circumstances. It's also stain-resistant and luxuriously soft. Other fiber types will flatten out faster than nylon, so avoid those.
Nylon is suitable for heavy traffic areas, so you'll be in good shape installing new carpet made from this material.
If you've been looking at super soft high-pile carpets, kiss that carpeting goodbye. They won't last with the amount of traffic your rooms get.
You need to invest in a tight low-pile carpeting. It may not be as soft as you would want it to be, but it will last longer and look good when maintained.
There are a lot of popular low-pile types of carpet on the market right now, so don't feel like your limited in selection.
Selecting a flecked or dark colored carpet is your best option here.
With the amount of dirt your kids bring in after a long day of play, you may miss a couple areas while vacuuming. Dark carpeting will hide the soil that makes it past your cleaning routine. Look for carpet colors like:
Flecked colors, like black carpet with blue spots, will add extra masking to any soil and stains that get stuck in your carpeting.
