Alan's FREE Carpet Foot-Traffic Test
©2021 Alan Fletcher - 30-Year Carpet Expert and Trusted Consumer Advocate
Take my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test* to help determine What Grade of Carpet you should select to meet your needs, goals, lifestyle and budget.
You can't choose new carpet wisely unless you select a carpet that is capable of withstanding your own unique level of foot-traffic you have in your home.
This is why I have created my own simple test that you can quickly and easily take to help determine your level of foot-traffic you have in your home based on several important and key variables.
It's not a scientific test, just based on my own knowledge and experience after 30+ years in the carpet business. I think you will find it a very useful tool and hopefully it will help you make wise and informed carpet buying choices.
Carpet Foot-Traffic Test Directions:
To determine your Carpet Foot-Traffic Score, answer the following 6 questions carefully and then add up all your points to determine your Foot-Traffic Score:
Now Add Up Your Points!
10 to 24 points = Low Traffic
25 to 34 points = Medium Traffic
35 to 44 points = Moderate Traffic
45 points & up = Heavy Traffic
Now that you have a better idea about your own unique Level of Foot-Traffic you have... Let's see how much you might need to spend to get the right grade of carpet you require for your home based on how long you want your new carpet to last...

Obviously, spending just $15 per yard on new carpet won't get you the highest quality. However, if you have low foot-traffic you still can get many years of use from an inexpensive carpet if you take good care of it.
On the other hand, if you buy the highest quality carpet and don't take care of it, it will certainly wear out faster than you hope. Proper Carpet care and maintenance can greatly extend your carpet's life span.

homeowners experience some degree of "sticker shock" when they
discover how much new carpet is going to cost. You might need to save up
more money before you purchase new carpet or perhaps you might consider
completing your new carpet project in two or more stages. However, you
should never settle for a lower grade of carpet that cannot handle your
level of foot traffic!
Rather do your carpet replacement in two or more stages.
