Commonly asked questions about carpet from Indianapolis carpet store, Kermans

Published: May 15, 2014
Our design staff hears questions every day about carpet. They are available to help you make the best flooring selection for your home and budget. Have a question about carpet? We have the answer.

What is the best carpet for high traffic areas?

Loop or textured carpets are the best at standing up to lots of wear and tear. These carpet fibers are twisted and/or looped over to present a tougher surface that doesn’t wear down as easily as plush, cut pile carpets. These carpets are still very comfortable and offer all the quieting, warming benefits of carpet.

What is the best way to clean carpet stains?

When it comes to cleaning stains, a clean towel, water and timing are your best friends. Tackle the stain as soon as it hits and you have a much better change of blotting it up before it has a chance to soak through the carpet padding. Gentle blotting – not scrubbing – is the best way to remove a stain. Want some other great tips? Check out our video about cleaning carpet stains:

What is the best carpet for dogs and cats?

Many pet owners shy away from carpet simply because it is harder to clean with shedding, messy pets. That doesn’t mean you can’t have carpet though. When you have cats or dogs you should look for carpet that has cut pile so it won’t catch on their claws. You’ll also want carpet with solid stain resistant fibers. Karastan’s SmartStrand is a very durable, stain resistant option that can be great for homes with pets.
