"Twist carpet still shedding"
I bought a Shaw twist carpet for nearly the entire house. The first few
vacuumings filled the canister. Complained. They said it was normal and
would stop shedding in about a year. Three years later still filling
canister each time. Calling Shaw again but probably get the same bs line
I've received before. "The shedding is not a problem." I spent far too
much money to get the run-a-round.

"Not a Good Choice"
Caress is very soft, but the pile is so high and thick that our
expensive vacuum cleaner will not work on it -- even at an extra high
setting. Vacuuming becomes an extraordinary chore. Check for other
brands, styles before purchasing -- or at least make sure your vacuum
works with it. Wish I had thought of that before spending so much money
on the carpet!

"Caress vs best"
We got the Platinum quality of the Caress carpet. Like others, it was
matted and "corn rowed" in months. But, inspector agreed the twist had
come undone. Covered under warranty. Going to replace it with a
different, albeit cheaper carpet. Thinking about getting "the best"
carpet. Wishing the reviews were more specific as to type. It has a high
durability rating. If anyone has that- would like to hear reviews.

"Two different grades"
Will not stand traffic. First carpet was replaced under
warranty. Went with higher grade more expensive 2nd time with same
result. If you are stupid enough to buy Shaw carpet after reading
this you deserve what you get.

"Worn and matted"
Had this carpet installed in October 2013. It looks like it has been
down for 13 years or longer. It looks worn, matted and very disgusting.
Inspector came out and said it's fine. I am going to see an attorney
regarding this matter. There are 3 adults living here, no pets and no
children. By the looks of the carpet you would think that a dozen people

It started showing wear within a few months. It is dirty and packed down
and looks like a worn carpet.

Had Shaw carpet installed in December of 2013. It began to ripple and
soon we had waves so large I could not vacuum over it. A Shaw "rep" came
out and was mystified. He said an inspector would be contacting us.
We're still waiting. If Shaw has any plan to lay the blame on us I will
be contacting my lawyer and suing them in small claims. Everyone should
do this - you will win. Take photos, keep meticulous records, and sue.
It's time for people to stand up to this sort of blatant

"Still a dark spot on the carpet"
We paid alot of money ($42 psy) for our carpet. We had Stainmaster in
our last home and loved how durable it was with our family and pets. We
told the sales person that we wanted something equivalent or better. She
suggested this carpet. It is beautiful, it is soft, it looks plush, just
like we wanted.
The bug but... We have a little dog who sometimes is naughty. Within one week, sure enough, he was naughty on the new white carpet. We cleaned it according to the manufacturers direction, clear dish soap and warm water, and a dark stain developed. We steam cleaned, still a dark spot on the carpet.
I am working with my retail location on a solution and can't post a final. We are still within our 60 day customer satisfaction timeframe.

"Carpet Warranty - A Joke"
Within a year our carpet has spots that are "lightening" up .. not
stains. They appear and we have no explanation. Shaw sends an
"independent rep" who claims pet urine (which means my dog must
'tinkle' all over the house in a 1/2 inch spot) and lack of owner
cleaning! They said they "tested" the carpet and it was stain resistent
so no factory fault. Now, a stain and a lightening/bleaching look are
completely different. Shaw is useless and just puts the blame on the
consumer. I'm following advice of others on this site and claiming
through nys offices.

"Carpet warranty with Shaw carpets--what a joke."
In less than a year we had light spots showing up in different places in
our new carpet. I contacted the retailer and they contacted Shaw. They
hired a so-called independent inspector to examine and do a report. The
report came back in Shaw's favor. The report stated that the loss of dye
in the fibers was due to cleaning chemicals, but did not specifically
identify a chemical. I found this to be an easy way to lay the blame on
me, rather than consider a defect in the carpet. It is obvious after my
conversation with Shaw, that they have no intent of considering any
warranty. If I want to appeal the denial, I have to pay for another
inspection. I have decided to file a complaint thru our state's consumer
protection office. This only takes time, not your money.
