Pets can be a great addition to your family adding life and energy to your home. Those aren’t the only things they add though. They can add extra wear and tear to your carpet whether that be through potty training accidents or tracking in dirt and dust from outside. While there is always the option to have Immaculate Home Chem-dry come in and clean up with our pet urine removal service in Torrance, there are things you can look for in a carpet that is more durable and resistant to wear.

No matter the activity level of your pet, here are three types of carpets that can maintain their quality best—no matter how many children or pets you have in the home!

Better: Polyester

When you go carpet shopping it can be overwhelming to see all the different options available. If you are wanting to keep it as simple as polyester, you can’t go wrong with a carpet made from polyester fabric. Polyester is not only softer than other fabrics but it is also highly stained resistant so you don’t have to worry about inevitable accidents that come with having a pet. 

Best: Synthetic Fiber

If you are wanting to get the best possible option synthetic fiber is the way to go. It will be a little more expensive but it last for years and years to come! Nylon is a high resistant carpet choice, and a great one for homes that have toddlers, pets, and teenagers spilling and stomping on it, regularly. Nylon carpets are very sturdy, as the synthetic fibers hold their shape well, especially in comparison to other materials, such as the loop style Berber carpet (which can easily snag). While nylon may be a bit higher in cost than other fibers, it offers a longer-lasting color—even in high-traffic homes.

Medium Shade is Ideal

Are you looking for the right carpet to put in your children’s playroom, or the hallway? Keeping your carpets looking brand new is a priority, and when you choose a medium-shaded one, it doesn’t have to be a struggle.  As a general rule of thumb, stay away from dark carpets, as well as those that are light in color.


Picking the right type of carpet for your home is an important choice to make, and when you choose one that’s compatible with your growing family’s needs, you need to protect it! Routine professional carpet cleaning every 6-12 months extends the life and durability of your carpets. Immaculate Home Chem-Dry also has a pet urine removal service for when the inevitable pet accident happens.
