Responses to the Questions

  • If the carpet is going to be installed in the more trafficked areas eg. Entrances, passages, reception areas etc then a low piled product would be most suitable. Bedrooms, lounges and lighter used areas will suit soft cut piles better. Within reason most carpets can be utilised everywhere as all carpets today are extremely well manufactured and can withstand most conditions of usage. However a soft piled carpet will flatten in traffic areas although this must not be confused with wear. It’s merely an appearance change which sometimes can look ugly if the product is not well maintained.
  • With Children and/ or pets in a home the carpet chosen should ideally be suited to such an environment. In this case stain resistance and ease of maintenance are probably your main consideration. The fibre of choice here should probably be Nylon & Triexta and not too light a colour.
  • Stain Resistance: Triexta & Solution Dyed Nylon fibres are the best choice here.
    Durability: Most carpets today can withstand enormous abuse and will not wear out but will tend to look ugly if not properly maintained.
    Softness/Aesthetics: Woollen, Soft Nylon and Polyester carpets are the most suitable for these applications.
    Anti Microbial: An important facet today particularly for the elderly and children.
    Numerous carpets have built in properties.
    Affordability: There is a carpet to suit all price ranges. Generally low piled carpets are more affordable than plush piled carpets.
    Warranties: Carpet Right only provide carpets that are backed by the major manufacturers. Warranties are dependent on a number of factors such as correct maintenance. Provided these conditions are adhered to some products carry a 15 years Warranty.
