Why do so many
consumers buy carpet blindly?
What is the real problem? It is very difficult for
consumers to locate honest, truthful and complete information about the carpets they are
considering. Many consumers tend to completely trust the
advice of the carpet salesperson. That's the first and biggest mistake many
consumers make. Many carpet salespeople don't have your best interests in mind.
Buying carpet is a major
homeowner investment and extreme care should be taken to ensure that wise
and informed choices are made. Consumers often follow the advice of a carpet salesperson
who recommends a carpet without taking into consideration all the pertinent
aspects of the consumers personal lifestyle and living situation. Sometimes with
a whole lot of luck that might work out and everything will turn out
alright, but all too often it is a very costly mistake.
I am concerned with the fact that a large percentage of flooring salespeople may not know
or have access to complete or accurate product information to be qualified to recommend the right flooring
choices for consumers.
Where do you think these salespeople get their training and information?
get it from
the carpet manufacturer and the retailer. Both of these sources may not have
your best interests in mind. They want to get your business and will do whatever
they can to accomplish that. This is why they spend millions every year on
advertising. Who ultimately pays for this advertising? The consumer.
If you really want to buy a carpet that will
last and endure your personal application and circumstances, you have a responsibility to learn
the truth about the materials you are buying. If you trust a salesperson to make
your decisions, you are taking your chances.
Protect yourself and your investment!
Don't trust any carpet salesperson to make
all the decisions for you. You will need to do some research and homework in
order to make wise choices. You need to be sure to buy carpet that is designed to meet your needs and your lifestyle.
