Everyone’s been asking me this question lately. Is there a best time of year to buy new carpet? If you know what to do, the answer is YES! 

 

You can save as much as 25% or more by knowing when to buy and how to negotiate your best deal. You just need some free and unbiased carpet buying information!

How to Measure for Carpet in 4 Simple Steps

Carpet retailers have busy seasons and slow seasons. If you try to negotiate a better deal during their busy season, then you don’t stand much of a chance to beat them down on the price. However, if you negotiate wisely during their slow season then you stand a very good chance of negotiating a very sweet carpet deal for yourself.

 

The Worst Times to Buy New Carpet.

 

Now, when are the slow seasons you ask? Let me start by telling you when the busy seasons are so you can get a better understanding of the big picture.  The real question is, when do people buy carpet most? You don’t want to buy carpet when everyone else is buying. It’s almost impossible to negotiate a great deal on carpet when there are other customers waiting in line behind you holding their checkbooks. 

 

Here are the big three ”busy” seasons to steer clear of:

1.  Between February 20th and April 30th when people are expecting a tax refund

2. From the 4th of July through August 31st. During the hot summer months when people are remodeling an existing home or moving into a new home before the new school year starts.

3. Mid-October thru December 10th.  That’s when many homeowners are putting in new carpet because relatives and guests are coming for thanksgiving dinner and other upcoming holidays.

 

 

The Best Times to Buy New Carpet.

 

Alright, now you know when NOT to buy carpet if you want to negotiate your best deal. Now lets look at the three windows of “money-saving” opportunity so you know exactly when IS the best time to buy new carpet.

 

Once December 15th rolls around, the Christmas trees are going up and holiday shopping is at an all time high. This means that buying after December 10th is a great time to buy new carpet. This window of opportunity lasts through January 31st. By Feb 15th it’s all done, as the tax refunds are starting to come in. People who file their tax returns early know how much their refund will be and that’s when carpet shopping goes into full swing. You’ll be able to get the best deals at the beginning of January when this slow season is in full swing.

 

Best and Worst Places to Buy Carpet

 

The next slow season is from May 1st to June 30th. The tax refund is spent, Memorial Day weekend is busy, the kids are getting out of school, vacation planning is underway and their is plenty of springtime gardening to do. Buying new carpet is not at the top of the priority list for most people during this time. This makes it a great time for you to negotiate a great carpet deal. I suggest shopping for new carpet from May 15th through June 10th for the best negotiating power.

 

The next slow season comes right after the kids go back to school and lasts the whole month of September. Everyone is getting settled into a new school year regimen, enjoying the last few weeks of hot summer weather, and getting ready for the autumn leaves to fall. No one wants to think about getting ready for the holidays just yet. September is a great time to negotiate a great deal on new carpet for your home. This window of opportunity is not very long, I suggest shopping early in September because once people start thinking about the holidays it is all done until December 10th..

Question: Should I Buy New Carpet or have my Old Carpet Cleaned?

Best Carpet Choices for the Elderly or Disabled?

Best Carpet Selection for Walkers, Power Chairs or Manual Wheel Chairs?

Walkers, power-chairs and manual wheelchairs can be very damaging to residential-grade carpets installed over pad. The rubber wheels are very abrasive and tend to roll the carpet in front of the wheels causing the carpet to stretch-out and develop wrinkles quickly.  This can ruin even the highest quality carpets. What is the Best Carpet Choice in this situation?

Thicker is Not Better in this Situation!

A thick carpet pile and thick padding are the absolute worst options for anyone who is unstable walking, using a walker, a wheelchair or a power-chair as it increases the chances of tripping and falling. Thick carpet and padding also make it more difficult to push and maneuver manual wheelchairs and walkers.

Padding or No Padding?

To make it easier to get around easier you might want to install a low-profile carpet no thicker than 1/2″ pile height. Basically, the shorter the carpet pile the better, and the thinner the pad the better! Sometimes using no padding at all is a wise choice!

Wheelchairs tend to roll more easily over low-pile commercial-grade carpets which are commonly installed in schools, businesses, institutions and retirement homes. These low-profile styles are often glued down without any pad to increase longevity, clean-ability and reduce costs.

Commercial Grade or Residential Grade?

You might want to consider using a commercial-grade “level loop” or “cut pile” carpet, with either a 1/4″ (10-pound density) padding or better yet, use no pad underneath at all, just glue the carpet directly to the floor. It’s not very soft underfoot without a pad, but it is easier to clean, more durable, easier to walk on and easier to push a wheelchair around too.

Commercial Carpet Cost?

The cost for a basic commercial-grade carpet is very reasonable, about $15-20 per yard installed for a simple 20 to 26 ounce carpet, glued down without pad. (level loop or cut pile style) You can choose a single color or multicolored style. Look for brands like Mohawk or Shaw for the lowest cost. Where to buy? See who I recommend near you.

How Often Should I Vacuum My Carpet?

How Often Should I Vacuum My Carpet?

2020 By Alan Fletcher aka The Carpet Professor (CarpetProfessor.com)

Vacuuming Your Carpet frequently and thoroughly is an absolute must if you want your carpet to retain its like-new appearance and last as long as possible. You can easily cut your carpet’s life span in half if you don’t vacuum regularly or fail to maintain your new carpet according to the manufacturer’s new carpet warranty requirements.

 

Periodic Carpet Cleaning and Regular Vacuuming Is Required

According to virtually every new carpet manufacturer, homeowners are required to have their carpet professionally cleaned periodically, usually every 18 months. This will keep your new carpet warranty in force. Read your new carpet warranty very carefully to see what carpet care and maintenance is required by the carpet manufacturer.

This is important, even if your new carpet is installed in a seasonal home, your are still required to clean the carpet on a regular basis regardless of the amount of time you spend in the home. For example: if you only inhabit the home 6 months of the year, and it is vacant for 6 months, you can’t forgo the cleaning requirement as required by the carpet manufacturer. If you fail to clean your carpet according to the required cleaning schedule, your warranty can and likely will be voided. Retain all your professional carpet cleaning receipts for proof of scheduled cleanings !

The Main Problem: Most Homeowners Don’t Vacuum Often Enough. 

Improper carpet care and maintenance is a common reason why your carpet will wear out prematurely. Abrasion from ground-in dirt and grit can quickly cause your carpet to lose its like-new shine and quickly make your carpet appear worn-out, look dull and dingy.

Once damage from abrasion is done, there is rarely anything that can be done to reverse the damage. This also voids your new-carpet warranty due to improperly caring for and maintaining your new carpet according to the requirements, as stated in your new carpet warranty.

 

Most Carpets Don’t Wear Out, They ‘Ugly-Out!’

The common phrase ‘Ugly-Out’ is a common expression used for any carpet that loses its shine, or when the surface pile mats down prematurely. This event is most common in medium to heavy traffic areas such as hallways, stairs, in front of couches and main traffic to and from the front door!

 

How do I reduce the damaging effects from abrasion?

Abrasion caused by ground-in dirt and grime is the main reason why carpet will show signs of wear and tear before its time. Dirt and grime is mainly tracked-in from the outside via shoes, pets and many other sources. This is the major cause of carpet abrasion.

“Frequent vacuuming is an effective way to reduce the damage caused by abrasion and can help your new carpet last years longer!  Sadly, most homeowners do not vacuum enough, and most folks do not have their carpet cleaned on a regular basis.”  – Alan aka The Carpet Professor

 

Learn more: How Much Does Carpet Cleaning Cost?

Once your new carpet starts to look dull and dingy, you have already ruined your carpet to some degree. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do reverse the damage already done and make your carpet regain its original shiny like-new appearance. Ground-in dirt and grime is the main reason why your surface carpet fibers will lose its shine.

Carpet manufacturer’s new carpet warranties will quickly deny your warranty claim if you have not properly maintained you carpet according to their warranty requirements.

How to Prevent Abrasive Carpet Damage!

It’s the sand-like dirt, grit and grime that is tracked into your home and deposited into the carpet pile over time that causes of the loss of carpet fiber shine. There are some easy ways to help prevent the damage from happening, or at least slow down the amount of damage you experience over time.

First, a walk off mat is a great place to start. Simply wiping off your shoes before entering the home will help considerably. Some entry mats are better than others.

Next, some homeowners ask visitors remove their shoes and even provide “house” slippers to wear when entering their home. This will surely help reduce the amount of grit that causes damage to your carpet to some degree.

Vacuum Vacuum Vacuum!

Frequent vacuuming is a smart way to help reduce the amount of dirt and grit that causes abrasion to your carpet. Frequent vacuuming and regular professional cleanings is an important key to help keep your carpet looking like new. However, selecting the right grade of carpet is equally important.

Call a professional carpet cleaning company and have them do a deep carpet cleaning on a regular basis according to your new carpet warranty requirements. This will help stop the abrasion to your carpet pile from getting worse.

Need to buy new carpet? I have created my own special Carpet Foot-Traffic Test to help homeowners determine what grade of carpet to consider buying, based on several key variables.

Should I have my Carpets Cleaned or Buy New Carpet?

Some Carpets are designed to last for only 3 years and some are designed to last for over for 30 years, but sooner or later your Carpet will have outlived its usefulness and should be replaced. Below is Alan’s Quick Carpet Replacement Guide to help you determine if your old Carpet is still worthy of another professional cleaning or if it’s finally Time to Choose a New Carpet!

Learn more: Alan’s Carpet Replacement Quiz

Visit my free Carpet Care Guide to learn smart ways about how to make your carpet last years longer. My advice? Read your new carpet warranty carefully. You have certain obligations to properly maintain your new carpet. If you fail to follow the manufacturer’s care and maintenance requirements, your warranty will be deemed null and void.

 

Question: How Often Should I Vacuum my Carpet? 

Answer: How many people live in your home? That’s how many times you should vacuum each week, especially in high traffic areas, stairs, and in heavy traffic lanes!

  • Do you have 3 people living in your home?
  • Then you should vacuum your carpet about 3 times per week!
  • 5 people = Vacuum 5 times per week.

This is why having a good quality vacuum with enough suction power is important. Abrasion is a main cause of carpet wear. You can see the effects of abrasion most obvious in hallways or other main traffic lanes and on stairs. Carpet fibers can only tolerate a certain amount of abrasion before they show the permanently damaging effects.

Professional Carpet Cleaning is Required!

According to virtually every new carpet manufacturer’s warranty requirements, homeowners are required to have their carpet professionally cleaned (18 months on average) every 12 to 24 months to maintain their new carpet warranty. Read your new carpet warranty very carefully to see what carpet care and maintenance is required by the carpet manufacturer. Otherwise, your warranty could be null and void!

The Size of Your Home Matters…

The more people living you have living in your home means more vacuuming may be necessary. If you have a smaller home, vacuuming is more critical than if you have a larger home. For example: Five people living in a 5000 square foot home usually requires less vacuuming then does five people living in a 1000 square foot home.

Take my free Carpet Foot-Traffic Test to help determine what grade of carpet you need to buy, it’s a simple non-scientific test based on several key factors that I think are very important to consider.

 

Learn more: What Grade of Carpet Should I Select?

More frequent vacuuming or professional carpet cleanings may be necessary if you have any of the following circumstances in your home:

 

  • Have active teenagers, or have several young children.
  • Have active indoor cats, dogs or other pets.
  • Entertain often, or have several grandchildren that visit frequently.
  • Live in a dusty or rural area, or live on or near a farm.
  • Have Serious Allergies, COPD or Asthma.
  • Live in a hot, moist or humid climate.
  • Live in a small home with moderate to heavy foot-traffic on a daily basis.

Loud Neighbors? Can Thick Carpet and Padding Help Reduce Noise?

Featured

Noisy Neighbors! Can Heavier Carpet or Thicker Padding Help Reduce Noise, Stomping Feet and Bothersome Sounds from Neighbors?

Hi Alan,

I just checked out your website, CarpetProfessor.com, as I want to purchase and install a very durable, soil and stain resistant carpet in my heavy-traffic rental apartment, by end of this month. I also want to reduce the sound coming from my upstairs neighbors.

I own a fairly-new three-floor, two-family home, with the first two floors owner-occupied and the 3rd floor is a rental. The rental has 2 bedrooms, a storage room, living room and dining area, a very long staircase from ground floor to the rental apartment and another staircase inside rental apartment to the terrace.

I believe the two staircases have about 44 steps total. I just remodeled the rental apartment and removed all the old carpet as my last tenants soiled and stained the carpet beyond recognition.

I tried to get expert carpet advice, but my first two tries ended in disaster.

I tried National Floors Direct and found their salesperson a fraud and a scam using high pressure sales tactics. He was more interested in getting a down payment from me than recommending or advising me on best carpet and padding. He wanted a $2,000 down payment for a carpet he first priced at $7,500 and then dropped the price to $4,500 if I paid the deposit before he leaves. This was a very bad experience and scary.

Then I tried Empire Today, which sent an inexperienced salesperson to me and that did not go well. I found the guy only interested in making money and did not care if I made wise and informed choices.

Then I found your website. Your free information about carpet and padding was very valuable to me so I thought I would ask for your help. I need to install new carpet throughout the entire rental apartment by end of this month.

Best Carpet and Pad Options for Loud Neighbors?

The owner-occupied floors and the rental floor are not sound proof and we are very concerned about loud noise coming from the upstairs tenants’ floor. I originally wanted to install tiles in the tenants’ floor but decided against it because tiles do not reduce the noise or absorb sound.

I know a good quality carpet and padding does help reduce and absorb sound, so I decided I would install carpet in the rental floor and on staircases. However, I am still trying to figure out the best type of noise or sound reducing, durable, soil and stain resistant carpet and padding to purchase. So here are my main questions:

Q. What carpet and padding would you recommend for the rental apartment, bedrooms, living and dining rooms and storage room to reduce the sound from stomping feet and other loud noises coming from the upstairs apartment?

Q. I see where you recommended a commercial-grade carpet for the staircase, but would this help reduce noise or sound better than a residential-grade carpet and pad?

I live in Queens, NY near your recommended Bay Ridge Carpet & Linoleum Carpet Dealer. I plan to check out this company tomorrow or so and I hope they are still trustworthy and honest as you indicate on your website.

Which Carpet and Padding Will Reduce Noise Best?

Alan please reply to my email and questions ASAP. I really need your help and recommendations on best carpet and padding to purchase to meet my needs. I took your Carpet Foot-traffic Test and the results show I have Heavy-Traffic. Thanks, and God Bless, Kim

Reply:

Hi Kim,
Your dealings with Empire and National is par for the course. Sorry you had to go through that. It is well known that most nationally advertised retailers use high-pressure sales tactics and their sales reps have limited knowledge about the products they sell. I always recommend buying from a locally owned and family run carpet dealer.

I can’t tell you what grade of carpet you need to to buy, as there are so many options for you to consider. If you allow pets, then you might want to consider installing a lower priced carpet. Pets that have frequent wet accidents can ruin an expensive carpet just a fast as an inexpensive carpet. You already know how much damage some tenants and their pets can do. If your tenants will be staying for many years and have no pets, then a better grade of carpet might be a better option.

Does thick carpet or padding help reduce noise and sound?

I think you should select at least an 8-pound density “Rebond” type padding to help reduce noise from your upstairs tenants.Rebond is the most economical padding and it does a great job of supporting the carpet and has excellent sound deadening properties.

The padding thickness to choose will depend on the type and style of carpet you select. In most cases a 7/16″ padding thickness will be appropriate. Some dealers have higher density pads and increased thicknesses. Too much padding thickness can cause your carpets to develop wrinkles. A half inch thickness is where I would draw the line for a frieze, plush or textured style carpet. Looped Berber styles are not a good choice for rentals because they tend to snag easily.

I do think it would be wise to select a commercial-grade carpet for your stairs and use a synthetic-fiber padding. It is a dense pad and has anti-microbial properties. It will last longer and help quiet the sound of stomping feet. Stairs always take a beating and a commercial grade carpet and pad is more durable and will save you money in the long run.

Loud Neighbors? Will Carpet or Padding Reduce Noise?

Bear in mind that you will still have some noises and sounds from neighbors that you will need to live with and tolerate. Even the thickest carpet and padding can only do so much to reduce the noises and sounds from people living near you.

Yes, Ritchie’s Bay Ridge Carpet is still my #1 carpet choice in Brooklyn and they can help you select a carpet that will serve you best and help reduce the noise from your upstairs neighbors!

What is a Good Carpet Choice for Kids Dogs Cats and Pets?

Q. I am looking for a good quality carpet that can withstand children, cats, dogs and heavy traffic. I have a formal living room that you land in upon entering my house. To get to any other part of the house at that point, one needs to walk through the living room. My biggest problem is the traffic marks from the front door, across the living room and down the hallway to the bedrooms. This gets dirty fast.

Alan’s response:

A Nylon Frieze is one of the most durable and best-wearing carpet styles. There is only one type of carpet fiber that can withstand kids, pets, and heavy traffic, it’s a Nylon Frieze. Depending on how long you want your carpet to last, you need to choose accordingly. I suggest you take my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test and follow the prompts until you determine what face-weight and pile density might best meet your needs and goals.

For example: A 100% nylon frieze carpet style with a tuft twist of at least 6, a face weight of 38 to 45-oz, and a pile density of at 1800-2200 is designed to withstand 10 to 15 years of medium to heavy traffic. Frieze styles wear so well because they have a higher tuft twist and Nylon is the most durable fiber.

Smartstrand by Mohawk is another good option if you want a carpet that is easy to clean and is excellent at resisting stains. Between Nylon and Smartstrand I think that the most important thing to consider is your budget and how long you want your new carpet to last. Overall, Nylon will last longer, but Smartstrand will be a bit easier to clean. Smartstrand is also known as Triexta or PTT or Sorona and was invented by DuPont. Personally I am a fan of Nylon because it has stood the teat of time for over 70 years while Smartstrand has been around for about 10 years.

How Do I Choose the Right Carpet Fiber? What does BCF mean?

via How Do I Choose the Right Carpet Fiber? What is BCF?

 

How do I choose the Right Carpet Fiber?

What Does BCF Mean?

Q. I have four kids and three dogs. I need a carpet that is able to take a beating. My question: I am confused about carpet specifications. What is BCF?  I see these initials on the back of some carpet samples but not others? What does this mean?

Alan’s response:

BCF stands for Bulked Continuous Filament. You want to buy a carpet made from a continuous filament fiber. The work “Bulked” refers to a process where the manufacturer makes the strand of fiber beefed up, or bulked to create a fatter and more beefy feel. Think of it like using a volumizer on your hair, it makes it feel thicker and fuller.  The “CF” or Continuous Filament, means the strand is formed or “extruded”  in one long strand.  When they make carpet from a CF fiber is virtually eliminates the shedding and fuzzing that you experience with a carpet made from a Staple Fiber.

Learn About My Carpet Buying Guide

What is a Staple Fiber?

A Staple Fiber is short lengths of fiber, usually 3 to 10 inches long, that are spun together to make a long strand. Strands are then twisted to form a tuft. When carpet is made using staple fibers, the carpet will tend to shed and fuzz for up to a year after installation. While this is normal, it is not a result that most homeowners enjoy living with. When you vacuum up bag after bag of loose fibers, it makes you think your new carpet will shed so much it will eventually become totally bald! So unless you like vacuuming three times a day, I suggest you be sure to buy a carpet made from a Continuous Filament Fiber.

Can Dirty Carpet Affect those with Asthma, COPD or Allergies?

How Often should I have my Carpets Cleaned? What about Allergies, Asthma, COPD or other Respiratory Problems Caused by Dirty Carpet?

By Alan Fletcher – 30-Year Carpet Expert and Consumer Advocate

 

The cost for quality carpet cleaning depends on the age and condition of your carpet, how often you have it cleaned and the amount of time and effort it will take to do the job right.

 

4 Facts To Know About Carpet Cleaning:

  1. How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned if I have Allergies or Asthma?
  2. How to find an Honest and Reputable Carpet Cleaning Company?
  3. How To Avoid Carpet Cleaning Scams and Costly Consumer Mistakes
  4. What to do about Pet Damage; Odor, Carpet Stains and Carpet Repairs

Carpet Cleaning Rule # 1

The dirtier your carpet is… the more it’s going to cost to have it cleaned properly.

Imagine not cleaning your stove-top for a week, or a month or a year! How much more difficult would it be for you to clean it? If your stove top was just dirty from last night’s meal then it might take just a few quick swipes with a damp cloth or sponge to get the surface clean again.

But if you had not cleaned it after daily use for a week or more, then can you imagine how long it could take to clean it and how much more difficult the task would be? The same goes for your carpet.

If you haven’t had your carpet cleaned in a long time, no matter who you call… it’s going to take some extra time & effort to do a thorough job. This means it will cost you more to get the job done right!

 

Have Allergies, Asthma or Respiratory Issues? Clean your carpets more often!

Any carpet pile can harbor plenty of dirt, dust and debris. Even the most powerful vacuums can’t remove everything embedded deep in the carpet pile. Having your carpet cleaned an a regular basis can not only help reduce the overall cost, but may also help you and your family live in a much cleaner living environment

 

Can Bad Air Quality Cause Respiratory Problems?

Having your carpet cleaned every other year is the standard in a normal household. However, if you have a large family, you should have your carpet cleaned more often. If you or your family have any respiratory issues like asthma, COPD or allergies, then I think it would be wise to have your carpet cleaned more often.

Cleaning your carpet once every 18 months, or even once a year, may help reduce the potential for respiratory symptoms, or problems caused from exposure to air-borne pollutants. Using a vacuum with a HEPA Filter (High-Efficiency Particulate Arresting) may also a good idea. Check out my Carpet Vacuum Cleaner page.
