How well does this carpet hold up to stains?

Shaw carpet with stain protection - westchester NYWhen it comes to carpet, stain protection is very important. In fact, staining is usually the primary reason that carpets need to be replaced (along with odor).  We know that stain protection is important to our customers, especially those with young kids and pets.  That's why virtually all of the carpet we sell comes with stain protection.

 

Recently, Shaw upgraded their stain protection.  Shaw is the only one in the industry that now places a warranty on their carpets for pet stains, human stains and even places a warranty on carpet placed on the steps.  But, if you don't believe me, check out these 2 videos.

 

To demonstrate how resistant their carpets are to stains, they created the world’s largest pie throwing contest. Check out how this carpet survives.  See how well their carpet stands up to this...it's AMAZING.

 

First - the world's largest pie throwing contest...

It’s quite impressive. Personally, I love Shaw carpets. They have so many soft and pretty ones. And, as you can see from the video, they are very practical, too.

Great video, really funny. As you well know stains on carpets can be really tricky. We have a guy in our BNI group, that does carpet cleaning. He has been a good coach in this area, of what to do and not do.

That is a great video!  And a great demonstration.  Shaw products have been around for a very long time, I think starting with the office equipment market.

If stains are attended to promptly, they can usually be removed.....if they are left to "set" it is more difficult

I've never heard of that Joanna, but I have heard of dust mites...it's prob. the same thing.  You'd have to ask a pest control person.  It may have to do w/ how clean someone keeps the carpets.  Not sure.

David - Thanks.  Yes, it is very nice.

Debbie- I love the video and the way it drives home the point. And point well taken is that the stain protection has been greatly improved.
