Let’s go over the questions – and pay careful attention because there will be a quiz. ;-)

Carpet Question Corner #8: What kind of carpet can stand up to two kids, a dog and my husband?

Many manufacturers will put carpet performance ratings on the label as a guide for consumers. Rated from 1 to 5, the scale represents the carpet’s ability to withstand extended wear. A rating of 4 or 5 would be a good choice for high-traffic areas. Carpets in the 2.5 to 4 range are predicted to give normal durability. And anything below 2.5 should be chosen for low-traffic areas like bedrooms. Not all manufacturers provide the numerical rating. But it’s a good place to start, for those that do.

How do you answer consumers who ask which carpet will wear better? How do you use carpet performance ratings to recommend carpet that stands up to kids, dogs and husbands?

There are now carpets out there that are superior in wear and will hold up to dogs, cats and kids. They also have a pet urine warranty, not that it is most people's issue. That fiber is Dupont Sorona Triexta.
