With children and/or pets, your carpet will certainly experience wear and tear. So, does one go about minimizing the damaged done, or perhaps preventing it altogether? The idea of installing new carpet into a home with these destructive, yet lovable, forces seems like a risky investment now, doesn’t it? Well, that you can be a little more confident about that investment as you read on.
The fibers that a carpet is composed of can make a big difference in its durability and practicality. Choosing a new carpet shouldn’t be solely based on style, color, or brand. Instead, considering a durable, highly resistant carpet that will maintain its quality is the best thing to focus on—no matter how many children and pets you have!
Whether it’s muddy paw prints and footprints, or a number of other accidents that could occur, these three types of carpets can maintain its quality best—no matter how many children or pets you have in the home!
Opt for a Synthetic Fiber Carpet
Choosing the right carpet to meet your family’s specific needs takes some searching—but, by choosing a synthetic (as opposed to ‘natural’) fiber carpet, you can significantly narrow down your best choices!
Nylon provides an excellent high-resistance carpet for homes that have toddlers, pets, and teenagers who regularly spill and stomp on it. The synthetic fibers in nylon carpets are very sturdy and hold their shape well—especially in comparison to other materials, such as the loop style Berber carpet (which can easily snag). While nylon may cost a little more, you’ll enjoy longer-lasting colors within the fibers, even in high traffic homes.
Polyester Works Well, Too
Another stain-resistant option that also provides a softer feel is a polyester fiber. Polyester carpets hold up well for medium to low traffic areas where you want the inviting feel of the carpet while maintaining a good quality; however, Nylon is a little more durable.
Choose a Medium Shade Carpet
Selecting a carpet color still opens the room up with some good vibes. Keeping your carpets looking brand new is a priority, and when you choose a more neutral one, it doesn’t have to be a struggle. As a general rule of thumb, stay away from dark carpets that shrink our perception of the room’s space and can make it difficult to see the stain that may need treating. Instead, to make a room feel more open and inviting, choosing a lighter neutral color like grays, browns, or beige. Although, we don’t pretend to fashion designers here at Chem-dry though…
