If you’ve come to terms with the idea that it is time to replace your carpet then you’ve come to the right place for some advice on how to pick the right new carpet for your home. There are several factors to consider when selecting a new carpet and today at Cleanpro in Portland, we’d like to share some of them with you. 

Carpet Types 

If you are looking for luxury, a plush carpet is really your best option. However, if you’ve got a lot of foot traffic in your home, know that a plush carpet will mean a lot of vacuuming to get the footprints out of the capet. If you want to go with plush, our suggestion is to put it mainly in rooms that have less foot traffic. 

For more practical, yet still great options, you can consider either berber or textured carpet for your home. There are carpets that are textured berber. These are especially excellent options for homes with small children and/or pets. 

Berber carpets are excellently spill resistant. Because the carpet is a bit shorter and very close together, the carpet does not absorb spills quickly. This gives you plenty of time to dry them and not worry that your carpet padding has been affected. 

Textured carpets are layered, having some pieces that are shorter than others. The major desired effect this has is that it reflects the light, leaving stains and dirty patches much more difficult to see. Again, a great option for families with small children, pets, or perhaps even accident prone adults. 


When deciding on the color of your carpet, there is a lot to consider as well. Keep in mind, first of all, whether you’re planning to use the carpet as a focal point in the room or if you would simply like it to blend in with the surroundings. If you have a room where you display amazing artwork, for example, you may want to consider a carpet that does not call too much attention to itself. 

Likewise, if your desired effect is to make the room look larger, remember to go with a light carpet that will open up the space. Consider either tan or beige. While if you are trying to make a room seem cozier and/or more intimate you could consider a darker carpet to close the space. Of course, the color would depend on your personal style, but burgandy or a dark gray may be a good option. Once you’ve decided on a new carpet and had it installed, you will go a while without needing a professional clean. However, when the time comes, remember Cleanpro for carpet cleaning in Portland.
