What about stains and odors?

This is by far, one of the most common questions asked when it comes to carpet. In fact, many people have avoided this floor covering for that one simple reason. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Some brands are now manufacturing fibers that have excellent stain and odor resistance that is built right in, and even focusing on pet stains and odors in some cases. What’s more, you can always add an extra product for stain resistance to your flooring after the installation is completed. It’s always important to take care of any messes or spills as soon as possible, to keep them from penetrating down into the fiber of your flooring. Not only is this where those stains take hold, but it can harbor bacteria that are responsible for foul, unwanted odors as well.

Can I install my own carpet?

The answer would be yes, if some specific criteria are met. First, you will need the specialized tools necessary to complete the job, especially if you will be working with seams or stairs. Second, you must have a certain amount of experience with this kind of project. Amateurs or inexperienced carpet installers easily make mistakes. Those mistakes can push you far over your budget, as well as drastically reducing the lifespan of your flooring.
