Karastan – carpet guide – fine carpets and rugs – since 1928
Kids and pets
Since pets, like children, are prone to accidents, you’ll want to make sure your carpet is easy to clean. Karastan nylons are protected with the best stain-resistant treatments in the industry, so you won’t have to worry as much about every day mishaps. If you rather go natural, wool is your best soil-resistant choice. Karastan wools are naturally superior because they have built-in stain resistant features. The scaly structure of the wool fibers hold dirt high on the pile, making vacuuming more efficient-and effective.
Although you can’t prevent dirt, you can select colors and patterns that are better at hiding life’s little mishaps. Multi-colored patterns are an excellent choice if you have pets or small children because they mask spills as well as everyday wear and tear. If your looking for a solid carpet, remember that light colors show dirt the most, while dark colors show more lint, dust, and pet hair. If you have a shedding pet, you may want to match your pet’s hair to the carpet color. Although it sounds ridiculous it can help make your home feel a little cleaner.
Noise is another factor to consider when you have kids and pets. Expanses of hard surface flooring can reverberate household noise. Using plush textiles, such as Karastan carpets, along with fabric upholstery and window coverings, can help absorb sound waves and make your home a more peaceful and relaxing place.
