No matter how hard you try, when you have kids and/or pets, your carpet is going to suffer some injuries. That said, it is possible for you to minimize the wear and tear that will surely come. How do you do it? It begins before the carpet is even in your home. When you are choosing which carpet to install, more important than the choice of color or style is how durable and stain-resistant the carpet is!
Whether its the kids tracking in mud from outside, or the dog leaving you an unpleasant surprise, or a spilled glass of juice, the following three carpets are excellent at maintaining their quality, even with all that opposition.
Synthetic Fiber Carpet
When you first start looking for carpet for your home, you will be amazed at how many options you have to choose from. Make it easy on yourself by narrowing it down to a synthetic (as opposed to ‘natural’) fiber carpet.
Nylon is a high-resistant and sturdy carpet that holds its shape well. It is typically a bit more expensive, but the colors and quality are going to last much longer than other materials, such as the loop style Berber carpet (which can easily snag). This is a perfect choice for any home that expects the carpet to receive a lot of foot-traffic.
If you are looking specifically for a carpet that is highly stain-resistant, polyester is a great choice. Carpets made of polyester don’t absorb stains easily, yet they still offer the softness that you want. Polyester is a great way to get functionality and quality.
Choose a Medium Shade Carpet
Once you have settled on the type of carpet you want, then you can move on to color. Everybody wants their carpets to look fresh and new. The easiest way to do this is to choose a color that is a medium-shade. Dark and light-colored carpets tend to get dirtier much easier.
