4 Best Carpets for High Traffic Areas
If you have kids and pets in your home, you’ll need a carpet that is easy to clean, does not show dirt, is stain resistant and durable. Here are some of the best carpets for high traffic areas in your home.

Frieze Carpet
This is a type of short pile carpet with short fibers loosely twisted together. Its construction allows it to conceal dirt. It helps to hide seams if the carpet is larger than the area where it is to be installed. This carpet is durable and requires little maintenance making it one of the most suitable for high traffic areas.

Level Loop Pile
The level loop pile carpet is made from strands of uncut loops all set to be of the same size. This construction keeps most of the dirt and debris on the upper level of the carpet. It is easier to clean and vacuum because dirt doesn’t easily sink beyond the strands of fiber.

Wool
Wool is considerably more expensive than most carpets. However, it has many benefits especially if you want to use it for high traffic areas in your home. Its construction involves overlapping fibers which are very effective in preventing dirt from sinking into the lower levels of the carpet.

Wool can also absorb a third of its weight in moisture without getting damp. It is also resistant to fire and has self-extinguishing properties in the event that it catches fire.

Short Pile
Short pile refers to the height of the pile which is usually less than 2cm for this type of carpet. The main advantage of this construction is that there is less pile for people or pets to trample on. It is, therefore, less likely to leave footprints and does not lose its shape or appearance over time. They are relatively inexpensive, easy to clean and durable.
