4. Print or View My Free Carpet Durability Chart Guide


I designed this Carpet Durability Chart to help homeowners who are hoping to select the right grade or quality of carpet to meet their needs and goals based on known carpet manufacturing specifications. 

First, locate a carpet you are interested in buying, then obtain all the carpet specifications from your carpet retailer or from other sources. Then use this chart to help determine the level of durability for that carpet. 

Don’t forget to take my Free Carpet Foot-Traffic Test to help determine what grade or quality of carpet you need for your home.  Learn more about Carpet Specifications and Durability

Carpet Professor's Carpet Durability Chart

Now add up all your points to determine the general durability level of the carpet you are considering for your home.


Less than 120 = Poor  -  Low Foot-Traffic

120 to 149 = Fair   -  Medium Foot-Traffic

150 to 199 = Good Moderate Foot-Traffic

200 and up = Best  -  Heavy Foot-Traffic
