We love finding new ways to bring comfort into your home, from the actual carpet to the comfort of knowing you can live your life the way you want without worrying about your carpet. So we’ve led the way designing carpets that are more durable, easier to clean and more resistant to stains. Even the way we test our carpet goes above and beyond the industry. Take a look at some ways we make sure STAINMASTER® carpet is made for how you live in your home.

The importance of durable carpet - It's in the results

From our laboratory
to your living room
Helping you live more comfortably in your home means making sure our carpets live up to some high standards. We've done tons of laboratory testing and real-life research on both wear & tear and most common household soils, spills and stains. That helps us create carpet that stands up to what your family dishes out. Your carpet will clean easily and stay looking fresh.
