Unbiased Carpet Buying Information
Alan Fletcher - aka The Carpet Professor
to Avoid Making Costly Carpet Buying Mistakes
Many homeowners get ripped-off when buying new
Carpet because they don't know what they're doing and don't have easy access to all the
facts about how to buy new carpet wisely.
What's the underlying issue here? Why do so many
consumers select the wrong Carpet, pay way too much and end up unhappy with
their new carpet?
It's because it's very difficult for
consumers to find honest, accurate and complete carpet information. Many
homeowners make the costly mistake of trusting the
advice of inexperienced or unscrupulous Carpet salespeople. That's a costly mistake
because most Carpet salespeople don't have sufficient knowledge or experience with the products they
If you are in the market for new carpet, don't let any Carpet
salesperson make your Carpet Choices for you. You need to make your own
choice based on
your needs, goals, lifestyle and budget.
Sadly, most Carpet
salespeople have limited access to complete and accurate carpet information. Their
limited carpet knowledge often comes from a manufacturer's brochure, the
internet or an outdated
sales training video.
Most Carpet salespeople are hired due to their SALES
EXPERIENCE, not because of their CARPET KNOWLEDGE. In order to get hired they
need to be good at selling,
but that doesn't mean they are any good at helping you choose your new carpet wisely.
Carpet manufacturers love to create flashy posters, banners,
signs and displays to promote their new and improved product lines and they are quick to point out all the good qualities
about their products. But they fail to mention any of the negative
aspects or qualities about their
products. Remember, they are only in business to make money and everything
they do is solely designed to increase their profits. They may say or do
whatever it takes to convince you to buy their products whether it is a good choice
for you or not.

all the "untold" negative qualities of a particular carpet that consumers need to know about in order to make
wise choices. For example, Polyester is one of the softest fibers used to make
carpets today. It has the most vibrant colors and it resists stains and cleans easily. That's what the
manufacturer's brochure says. But what are the negative qualities of polyester
carpets? It mats down in a hurry. They don't mention that in their brochure and
the untrained carpet salesperson won't mention it either.
So take my word for it,
don't blindly trust any product information derived from Carpet brochures, Carpet
advertisements, carpet websites or Carpet salespeople. You need to do your own homework
order to make wise choices for yourself. You must be sure to buy a carpet that is designed to meet your needs,
goals and lifestyle.
