Carpets


Can you give me some pros and cons in getting high traffic carpet? I mean, from the term I would think that it may not be as fibrous as the usual carpets we see. But does it have disadvantages when cleaning because the threading is thicker or whatever? Not really sure, I might sound stupid here but I need some help.
Thanks!

Also, what are the best brand carpets out there?

Wouldn't it stand to reason that a "high-traffic" carpet would be a commercial product?

And wouldn't it stand to reason that a "high traffic commercial" carpet would require more frequent cleanings?

And wouldn't it stand to reason that increased cleanings would not necessarily cause excessive damage to a carpet?

In fact, the truth is, not routinely cleaning a carpet is what damages it.

I have to agree with Rusty; your question doesn't make a lot of sense.
