Secrets for installing carpet in those high traffic areas

For a busy family, choosing a carpet takes a bit more research and sample-shopping than usual. Special considerations have to be made for the amount of traffic, and the wear it can create, so that you’ll get the most from your new floor covering. It makes no sense to install a flimsy material in an area where pets, children, residents, and frequent house guests all clamor through on a regular basis. So what do you do? How can you protect your investment without stopping the regular flow of traffic?
There are actually a few things you can do that will help maintain your carpet and protect its longevity while in place in your home. The first is choosing a fiber that can withstand this amount of traffic. Nylon has always been an excellent choice for high-traffic areas because it resists stains, crushing, and is very affordable for most homeowners. Nylon frieze is a top pick for the busiest areas of your home, offering strong durability under great pressure.
Another option that has been popular over the years is to apply stain protection as soon as your new carpet is installed. While this works very well to keeps stains from becoming permanent, it does not protect against wear. If you have a fiber that won’t stand up to high traffic, all the stain protection in the world won’t keep it from a premature end of life.
One of the best options for making sure your new floors are secure in your busy home is to choose a material that is known for its performance and protection. Many manufacturers have taken the guesswork out of this process for you by including fibers that are stain-resistant, hypoallergenic, and can stand up to some of the heaviest traffic any family could create.
