How To Buy New Carpet and Flooring Wisely - Carpet Professor

 

Do You Have Low, Medium or Heavy  
FOOT TRAFFIC

 

 

HOW LONG Do You Want Your New Carpet To LAST
5 years, 10 years, 20 years? More?

 

What Grade of Carpet Should I Buy? Take my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test to find out and learn how to determine what Grade of Carpet you should select that is designed to meet your needs, goals and lifestyle. 

 

Your new carpet will wear out too fast unless the carpet you choose is capable of withstanding your home's unique level of foot-traffic. I created this simple test you can take to help determine your own level of foot-traffic based on several key variables. 

 

 

Test Directions:

 

To determine your Carpet Foot-Traffic Score, answer the following 6 questions carefully and add up your points:

 

 

1. How many adults live in your home?

  • Each adult  (add 5 points for each adult)

 

 

2. Do you have children, teenagers or pets?

  • Child under 13   (add 4 points each child)

  • Teenager           (add 6 points each teen)

  • Small pet            (add 3 points each pet)

  • Large pet            (add 6 points each pet)

 

 

3. Do you entertain or have grandchildren?

  • No                      (add 0 points)

  • Occasionally     (add 2 points)

  • Often                 (add 6 points)

 

4. How often do you vacuum thoroughly?

  • Never                (add 25 points)

  • Once  a week   (add  6 points)

  • Twice a week   (add  3 points)

  • Three times     (add  1 points)

  • Everyday          (add  0 points)

 

 

5. How often do you have your carpets professionally cleaned?

  • Once a year          (add 2 points)

  • Every other year   (add 0 points)

  • Every third year    (add 4 points)

  • Never                   (add 25 points)

 

 

6. How Large is Your Home?

  • Under 1000 sf  (add 6 points)

  • 1500 sf.           (add 4 points)

  • 2000 sf.           (add 2 points)

  • 2500+ sf.         (add 0 points)

 

 

Scoring:

 

10 to 24 points  =  You have Low Foot Traffic

25 to 34 points  =  You have Medium Foot Traffic

35 to 44 points  =  You have Moderate Foot Traffic

45 points & up  =  You have Heavy Foot Traffic
