Best Carpet For Kids Rooms? Carpet Professor

Best Carpet For Kids Rooms? If you have active pets, kids and teenagers like me, you know first-hand how hard it is to keep your carpet looking nice.

When your child spills grape juice or drops a peanut butter and jelly sandwich face-down on the carpet, it takes more than a just few minutes to get those stains 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 We Survived 4 Kids and 2 Cats

Since I am a carpet installer, I have the ability to change our family room carpet frequently and at a much lower cost than most homeowners.

But that doesn’t mean you should have to pay a fortune to replace your carpet on a regular basis if you have active children, teens or pets.

 

In my free and unbiased articles posted on my website 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.

If you want carpet to last for 3 to 5 years… Don’t spend more than you need to!

Best Carpet For Kids Rooms? You can buy a decent looking nylon carpet that will last for three years or more for less than $20 per square yard installed with pad! That’s about $400 for a 12′ x 15′ room including tax.

Where to find this deal? You will need to shop at a locally owned carpet store that has rolls of carpet in-stock. The carpet you want is often referred to as builders grade or apartment grade carpet.

    • Choose any carpet style, but not a looped Berber. (snags)
    • Buy from a local carpet dealer with rolls of carpet in-stock.
    • Select a darker color to help hide stains, earth tones work well.
    • Use a 4-6 pound density, 7/16″ Rebond pad.

On the other hand, if you want to buy a carpet that can last for 10, 15 or 20 years, then I can help you choose the right grade of carpet to meet your needs and goals.
