What to know about carpet flooring and durability

Durability is an essential feature in carpeting and one that's changed a lot over the years. But, more than ever, durable carpets are available for any homeowner.

If you're not sure what to look for in a durable carpet, this is a great time to find out more about them. Here are some things you should know about your durable carpet flooring.

How much durability do you need?

If you have pets, children, or both, you need a durable carpet for your household. But even if you don't have a lot of traffic, durability can be a huge benefit.

The more durable your floor covering, the longer it will last. And if you have low or no traffic, you could easily exceed your intended lifespan.

Built-in durability is an excellent choice

Some brands offer built-in stain and odor protection that helps create excellent durability. For homes with pets, this is a fantastic choice that will serve you well for years.

This built-in protection will never wash or wear off, so you're protected as long as the floors are in place. And to make them even more appealing, they're straightforward to clean and maintain.

Durability without built-in protection

If your carpeting choice doesn’t have built-in protection, you should know that nylon is the strongest fiber. These floors work well in your high-traffic areas without crushing or matting.

You can also use runners or area rugs in busy spaces for added protection. They catch dirt and debris and keep traffic off the floor's surface.
