Carpet Foot-Traffic Test 

 

 

Take my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test to help determine what grade of carpet can meet your needs and goals. You can't choose new carpet wisely unless you select a carpet that is capable of withstanding your level of foot traffic. I have created a simple test you can take to help you determine your own level of foot traffic based on several critical variables.

 

Directions:

To determine your own unique Carpet Foot Traffic Score, answer all the following questions carefully and add up your points:

 

 

 

1. How many adults live in your home?

  • Each adult                  (add 5 points for each adult)

 

 

2. Do you have children, teenagers or pets?

  • Each Child under 13   (add 4 points for each child)

  • Each Teenager            (add 6 points for each teen)

  • Each Small pet            (add 3 points each small pet)

  • Each large pet             (add 6 points each large pet)

 

 

3. Do you entertain or have grandchildren?

  • No                                           (add  0 points)

  • Entertain occasionally            (add 2 points)

  • Entertain often                        (add 6 points)

  • Grandchildren seldom            (add 2 points)

  • Grandchildren often                (add 4 points)

 

 

4. How often do you vacuum thoroughly? 

  • Never                                      (add  25 points)

  • Once  a week                          (add  6 points)

  • Twice a week                          (add  3 points)

  • Three times a week                 (add  1 points)

  • Everyday                                 (add  0 points)

 

 

5. How often do you have your carpets professionally cleaned?

  • Once a year                          (add 2 points)

  • Every other year                   (add 0 points)

  • Every third year                    (add 4 points)
