5 Keys to Carpet Buying Success

By Alan Fletcher - 30-year Carpet Expert and Trusted Consumer Advocate

 

 

1. Accurate Carpet Measurements Saves You Money!

 

Having the correct measurements for your home could save you plenty, not to mention the headaches that could be caused from under-measuring. My website reveals all the tricks to getting your home measured right. I also show you how to measure your home yourself! How to Measure for Carpet in 4 Simple Steps

 

 

2. Product Knowledge Gives You Power to Choose Wisely. 

 

Selecting the wrong carpet fiber is worst mistake you can make! Learn the truth about carpet fibers and carpet styles. Choosing the correct padding is very important too. The more you know the better choices you will make. Beware of bad information obtained from websites that sell carpet. They don't tell you the whole truth.

3. A wise shopper always gets several free estimates. 

 

Getting several estimates is just plain smart. Not only can you make your final choice by choosing the best carpet deal offered for similar products, it also gives you the chance to see who is fair and who is not. My website reveals where and how to comparison shop to find the best carpet deals. I also help you with the fine art of negotiation. I reveal insider tricks to getting your best carpet deal ever! What Grade of Carpet Should I Select?

 

 

4. Installing carpet correctly increases performance

 

Finding a qualified carpet installer is tougher than you might think. Carpets installed poorly will develop wrinkles and can cut the life expectancy in half! You must have your carpet installed properly if you expect it to last. Learn how to find and verify a qualified carpet installer! How to Verify a Contractor's License

 

 

5. Proper Carpet Care and maintenance insures longevity.

 

Take proper care of your carpet and it will serve you well for years to come. There's a lot more to caring for a carpet then vacuuming. And if you don't clean your carpets correctly you could easily ruin them. You also need to know how to keep your warranty in force. I reveal the truth about proper carpet care, important warranty facts,  and what you need to know about carpet cleaning methods! How often should I have my carpets cleaned?
