The Best Carpet Choice For Stairs

Did You Know…

Active children, dogs and cats and especially teenage boys and their friends are the main reason why carpets installed on stairs tend to wear out faster than carpets installed in other areas of your home.

Kids and pets love to run up and down the stairs as fast as they can which is very damaging to the pile surface.

If you want to have your new carpet last as long as possible then you need to make sure to buy the right grade of carpet and padding.

Best Carpet For Kids Rooms? Carpet College Has Your Answer!

If you have active kids and teenagers like I’ve had, you know first-hand that you cannot be in all places at all times and when your child spills grape juice or drops a peanut butter and jelly sandwich face-down on your carpet, it takes more than a just few minutes to get those stains to come out!

I also had two cats… that for some reason would vomit on the carpet quite often. I never did find out why they do this but I get plenty of emails from other homeowners who have the exact same problem!

My wife and I had four kids and they were all born about 2 years apart. So having a one-year old, a three-year old a five-year old and seven-year old kept us running both day and night!

 

How I survived 4 kids and 2 cats

In my free and unbiased articles posted on my websites you will learn many powerful insider secrets to buying the right grade of carpet for your home and how to negotiate a fair and square deal.

Smartstrand Carpet Complaint

This is an important post for those who are in the market for new carpet. Carpet defects are not common but when they do happen it can be difficult to get a remedy.

Smartstrand Carpet Complaint

Smartstrand Carpet Complaint

Dear Alan

I am hoping you can offer some advice. We purchased Mohawk Smartstrand carpet for the master bedroom of a “seasonal” residence. Two adults and no pets inhabit the residence for approximately 5 months of the year.

The condo is in Florida. The carpet was purchased 8/2013. The carpet is showing excessive wear patterns anywhere we have to walk on and the carpet looks “matted” and frayed. Mohawk denied our claim because we didn’t have the carpet cleaned after 18 months. We pointed out that we had not been living in the residence for a total of 18 months. The store we purchased from in Naples, Florida asked us to have it cleaned and recommended a carpet cleaning company. Now after the cleaning, the carpet fibers look worse and the carpet looks dirty. The carpet cleaner also noted the wear patterns were not improved by the cleaning.

Mohawk has been difficult to deal with and the dealer where we bought it is not standing behind their product. Is there any way to contact someone at Mohawk other than the usual customer service representatives, who might have some authority to help us? Do you have any suggestions or recommendations?

Thank you for any assistance,

Ron

Hi Ron

Can you tell me the room measurements and the price you paid for the carpet only?  (Per square yard or by per square foot)

What type and density of padding was used? What was the total price for the whole job, carpet pad and installation?

Is this a beach house?

Alan

Dear Alan

Thank you for getting back to me. I’m so discouraged by this situation.

No, it’s a condo on the 5th floor of a 15 story building, not directly on any body of water. The pad used was 7/16”, 7lbs density. Currently the carpet retails for $5.49 a square foot. I measured the room myself; the main area is 14’ x 29’. There is a 4x 4 entry area leading into the large area. There is a 10’x 4’ hallway from the main area leading to a bathroom and a walk in closet along the hallway approx 13’ x 5’.

Hi Ron

Here is my opinion on the issue:

From your provided information, it appears from the amount you spent on carpet tells me that it is a good quality carpet (about $45 per sq yard) and the pad they used was of sufficient quality and density. The problems you are dealing with should not be happening to you. If a carpet shows major signs of wear and tear after just a few months, then there is something seriously wrong. I suspect there is a manufacturing defect of some kind. Your carpet dealer is your best bet for a solution to your problem.

A locally owned carpet dealer has some leverage with the carpet manufacturer in situations like this. Keep calling and asking for their help to resolve this. If you can’t get your carpet dealer to help you get your carpet inspected; get a valid claim filed with the carpet manufacturer, and/or get some sort of resolution, then you may want to consider filing a lawsuit in small claims court. (It’s not a fun thing to do and is often difficult to win).

Interesting update! The carpet dealer has now offered us a replacement allowance of $2,100 plus free labor if I purchase new carpet from them. I’m enjoying reading your website articles about how and where to purchase new carpet.

Many thanks for all your help and advice!
