Warranty

There are many different types of flooring warranties and coverage can differ. However, damages typically excluded from a floor’s warranty include:

  • Water damage from plumbing, storms or flooding.
  • Damage from smoke, fire or other casualty event.
  • Damage from improper cleaning methods or materials.
  • Damage from improper maintenance.
  • Any use of the cushion that is unreasonable or outside of the normal and expected uses within a residence.

It’s important to understand your warranty so you don’t accidentally void it. Some warranties may require regular maintenance and/or specific cleaning requirements in order for the warranty to be valid. An expert at your local Carpet One Floor & Home store can help you understand the specifics of a warranty.

Also, understand that a wear warranty may have conditions about what percentage of the carpet has to be worn before coverage applies — on average it’s about 10% of the carpet — and only the worn section extending to the nearest wall, doorway or entrance, will be replaced with identical carpet.

Soiling

Soil warranties are provided in case of color changes due to deposits of dry soil from foot traffic and normal household use over time. Many times, self-cleaning or having the carpet professionally cleaned is done before checking to see if coverage applies. To guarantee coverage, you’ll want make sure to follow proper care and maintenance instructions.

Stains
