What do I need to know and consider when buying carpet?
There are many flooring coverings and options to consider when building a new home, renovating or simply planning to redecorate. Carpet is an ideal type of floor for most living areas outside of kitchens and bathrooms, but be sure to choose the right carpet types for your needs.
Factors to consider include the type of fibre – wool or synthetic, and the pile – cut, twist, loop or plush pile? What level of stain resistance do you need? Carpet Court luxury carpets are all quality products with differing properties in terms of stain resistance. For rooms such as family rooms, dining rooms and open plan living areas where food and drink is consumed choose a carpet with a high level of stain resistance.
For high traffic areas such as living rooms and hallways, ensure your chosen carpet has a high degree of resiliency and durability. Within bedrooms make sure you choose carpets with good insulative properties.

What type of carpet is the most durable?
Technological advancements means that while pure wool carpet has always been considered the quality product when it comes to durability, synthetic carpet fibres are now giving wool a run for its money as they are designed with excellent stain and soil resistant properties.
What is the difference between the different carpet styles offered at Carpet Court?
Carpet Court offer the largest selection of flooring products in Australia made from a range of different constructions to suit a variety of requirements. The differences in carpet styles are based around the choice of fibres and pile types which give each carpet a different look and level of performance. For example, cut and twist piles perform differently to looped pile constructions in terms of fibre resiliency and stain resistance. In addition, wool carpets have a natural ability to repel spills and stains whereas synthetic carpets are treated with high performing stain resistance technology.
Variations in carpet prices can reflect the different carpet styles, for example a 100% pure wool plush carpet may attract a different price tag to a synthetic looped pile.
Do you offer any advice when it comes to carpet care?
Caring for your new carpet in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions will ensure its continued longevity and high-performing good looks for years to come.
Regular cleaning and the use of floor mats in external doorways is recommended. Weekly vacuuming is essential and an annual professional steam clean gives your carpets a deep and thorough clean.
Liquid spills should be blotted immediately to absorb as much liquid as possible before further cleaning as recommended in the accompanying manufacturer’s care and maintenance guide. Consult the care guide on how to remove spills, dirt and stains and always seek professional advice if you are unsure.
How often should carpets be replaced?
A carpet should be replaced if it has reached the stage of wear and tear where it becomes a trip or slip hazard. Other than that, a carpet can last many years with regular care and maintenance.
