If you’ve ever had the task of choosing a new carpet, you will know that it can be rather daunting. As a carpet cleaner, I can’t tell you the number of times somebody has been given bad carpet advice – whether this colour, fibre type, carpet construction etc. All to often customers are sold on the benefits of a particular carpet, but the sales person neglects to tell them the cons. The truth is there is no such thing as a perfect carpet. However, some choices are clearly better than others. As an example, if you are the landlord of home with relatively cheap rent, durability is going to be less of a concern than stainability and price. The chances are that you are going to be replacing this carpet, no matter what you get, well before it’s worn out. If you are a discerning customer, and want to avoid the marketing hype and sales jargon, Mighty Clean Carpet highly recommend having a look at The Carpet Buyers Handbook for unbiased information on carpet selection. Mighty Clean Carpet are always happy to give you our opinion on the cleaning side of things.
