When selecting carpets, warehouses carry tons of choices, but you'll want one that's soil resistant and equally easy to maintain. Stain resistance won't be a priority for carpeting that goes on stairs, mostly because it's not a section of the house that experiences a lot of food accidents, like the kitchen, but you'll still want to search for one that has a sufficient amount of soil resistance.
There are some sections of your house that experience quite a bit of heavy foot-traffic, and the stairs are one of them. Therefore, from among the types of carpeting that you can afford, select one that's highly-durable, yet still attractive. In the end, there's no need to give up style for durability.

With professional carpet installation, Fontana, CA homeowners can avoid this nuisance, though selecting a large-looped, high-quality Berber that also helps to eliminate the possibility of 'side smiling.'
