If You Need Carpet for High Traffic Areas

Fashion & Cosmetics,Home Improvement,Current Affairs
Whether you have a large, active family or just love to entertain, high traffic through your home means that you need to make the right carpet choice to ensure that your carpet will look great and last for a long time. In areas of heavy traffic, such as in the family room, hallways and stairways, choose the best carpet you can afford.

Most people prefer to select a good grade of carpeting for a family room area, so that it wears as well as possible. However, others are of the opinion that since any carpeting put down in a family room will probably need replaced sooner than in other less busy areas of the home, less expensive carpeting is the best choice, with the plan to simply replace it when it becomes worn.

Choosing carpet for a high traffic area like a busy family room can sometimes be a difficult task. You want to select a high quality carpet so that it will stand up to the abuse typical to a family room, and yet you might be hesitant to spend a lot of money on the carpet in case it needs to be replaced frequently.

Choosing Carpeting Rated for High Traffic

Indoor carpeting is rated in regards to how well it stands up to heavy foot traffic. If you are selecting carpeting for a busy room such as your family room, you will want to choose carpeting rated between 4 and 5. Any rating lower than that just simply will not wear well enough in a room that gets a lot of traffic.

The Best Fibers for High Traffic Areas

When shopping for carpet for your family room, look for carpet that is made from nylon, polyester or PET polyester. Each of these fibers has their own advantages for high traffic areas. Nylon is known for its ability to hold its color through repeated washings, as well as being a very strong carpet fiber that stands up well to a lot of foot traffic. It is good at hiding soil, but it does tend to fade when exposed to sunlight on a long-term basis, and it does have a tendency towards staining. Polyester is also highly preferred because of its ability to repel stains. PET polyester is also excellent at repelling stains, and has the advantage of a high melting point, which makes it good for areas that will be steam cleaned. Fibers that have a tight twist are durable, but fibers that have less of a twist are often better for areas with a lot of foot traffic, because the finished surface of the carpet will remain good-looking for a longer period of time.

Color is also a consideration when selecting carpeting for high traffic areas such as the family room. Choosing carpeting in a darker color or one that is multi-colored will show less dirt, especially in walkway areas, than a lighter color.

You should also learn the best and easiest ways to clean and maintain your carpet. Proper vacuuming, for example, is the single most important step to maintaining the life and beauty of your carpet.
