Alan's Free Carpet Foot-Traffic Test 

By Alan J Fletcher - 30-Year Carpet Expert and Trusted Consumer Advocate

 

Take my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test to help determine what Grade of Carpet can meet all your needs and goals. 

 

You can't choose new carpet wisely unless you select a carpet that is capable of withstanding your home's level of foot-traffic.  

 

I have created a simple test you can take to help you determine your own level of foot-traffic based on several key variables.

 

 

 

Test Directions:

To determine your Carpet Foot-Traffic Score, answer all the following questions carefully and then add up all 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?

  • Each Child under 13    (add 4 points for each child)

  • Each Teenager            (add 6 points for each teen)

  • Each Small pet            (add 3 points each small pet)

  • Each large pet             (add 6 points each large pet)

 

 

3. Do you entertain or have grandchildren?

  • No                                         (add 0 points)

  • Entertain occasionally            (add 2 points)

  • Entertain often                       (add 6 points)

  • Grandchildren seldom           (add 2 points)

  • Grandchildren often               (add 4 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 a week                 (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 big is your home?

 

  • under 1000 square feet        (add 6 points)

  • 1500 sf.                              (add 4 points)

  • 2000 sf.                             (add 2 points)

  • 2500+ sf.                           (add 0 points)

 

 

 

 

Now Add Up Your Points to Determine Your Level of Foot-Traffic

 

 

 

10 to 24 points  =  Low Foot Traffic   

 

25 to 34 points  =  Medium Foot Traffic  

 

35 to 44 points  =  Moderate Foot Traffic  

 

45 points & up  =  Heavy Foot Traffic
