How to Avoid Making Costly Carpet Buying Mistakes.


Too many homeowners are ripped-off when buying new Carpet because they don't know what they're doing and don't have easy access to all the facts about how to buy new carpet wisely.


What's the underlying issue here? Why do so many consumers select the wrong Carpet, pay way too much and end up unhappy with their new carpet? 


It's because it can be very difficult for homeowners to find honest, accurate and complete carpet information. Many homeowners make the costly mistake of trusting the advice of inexperienced or unscrupulous Carpet salespeople. That's a costly mistake because most Carpet salespeople don't have sufficient knowledge or experience with the products they sell. 


If you are in the market for new carpet, don't let any Carpet salesperson make your Carpet Choices for you. You need to make your own choice based on your needs, goals, lifestyle and budget. 


Carpet Salespeople


Sadly, many Carpet salespeople have limited access to complete and accurate carpet information. Their limited carpet knowledge often comes from a manufacturer's brochure, the internet or an outdated sales training video. 


Most Carpet salespeople are hired due to their SALES EXPERIENCE, not because of their CARPET KNOWLEDGE. In order to get hired they need to be good at closing the sale, but that doesn't mean they are any good at helping you choose your new carpet wisely.


Carpet manufacturers love to create flashy posters, banners, signs and displays to promote their new and improved product lines and they are quick to point out all the good qualities about their products. But they fail to mention any of the negative aspects or qualities about their products. Remember, they are only in business to make money and everything they do is solely designed to increase their profits. They may say or do whatever it takes to convince you to buy their products whether it is a good choice for you or not.


Here's a Trick Question for You. 


If you were thinking about buying a new automobile and wanted to know if you were making a good choice, who do you think could offer the most honest and complete information about the vehicle in question?


A. The Auto Manufacturer

The auto manufacturer's brochure would show great photos and describe all the newest features and engine and mechanical specifications. 

B. The Auto Salesperson

The auto salesperson could show you how to operate all the newest equipment and take you for a test drive. 

C. The Auto Mechanic

But the Auto Mechanic would be able to tell you about the vehicle's service history, any common problems and consumer complaints. They may also know if previous buyers have been happy with the quality and performance of the car. 

So when buying new CARPET, don't you want the advice of someone who has had many years of "hands-on" experience? You want someone to tell you how well it performs, how long it will last, if there are any common problems or consumer complaints and how to take proper care of it. 



I am the experienced Carpet "Mechanic" who's advice you should trust. I don't sell or install carpet anymore and I don't manufacture it. But I have spent over 30 years selling, installing, repairing, researching and learning virtually everything about carpets of all types, grades and styles. I know carpet inside and out.


I know how carpets are made and I know how long they will last in a given situation. I've installed tens of thousands of yards of carpet and flooring and have worked with over 20 different carpet retailers. I've witnessed just about every carpet gimmick, carpet scam, carpet rip-off and sneaky carpet trick in the book. 


This is why I am uniquely qualified to author the most popular and most valuable Carpet Buying Guide on the planet.  I am the expert carpet mechanic who's opinion and advise you should trust!

It's all the "untold" negative qualities of a particular carpet that consumers need to know about in order to make wise choices. 


For example, Polyester is one of the softest fibers used to make carpets today. It has the most vibrant colors and it resists stains and cleans easily. That's what the manufacturer's brochure says. But what are the negative qualities of polyester carpets? It mats down in a hurry. They don't mention that in their brochure and the untrained carpet salesperson won't mention it to you either. In fact, most carpet salespeople today believe that polyester carpets are better than ever. Tell that to all the homeowners who email me with horror stories about their matted down polyester carpets.


So take my word for it, don't blindly trust any product information derived from Carpet brochures, Carpet advertisements, carpet websites or Carpet salespeople. You need to do your own homework in order to make wise choices for yourself. 


You must be sure to buy a carpet that is designed to meet your needs, goals and lifestyle. Take My Free Carpet Foot Traffic Test
