The Importance of Carpet Durability

Helping you live more comfortably in your home means making sure our carpets live up to some high standards. Stainmaster® has done tons of laboratory testing and real-life research on both wear & tear and most common household soils, spills and stains. That helps us give you carpet that stands up to what your family dishes out. Your carpet will clean easily and stay looking fresh.
