"Worst carpet ever"
I purchased Stainmaster carpet about 1 1/2 years ago it is the worst carpet I ever purchased! After about 6 months I noticed a gap at the top of my steps and a buckle in closet ( under clothing ) then and another few weeks more buckles, under bed, next to bed, under dressers, etc; the carpet was starting to show wear I think carpet should last longer then 1 1/2 years I have had carpet in other rooms for 11 years and look wonderful compared to this carpet which again might I say has only been down for 1 1/2 years with problems starting after 6 months! I contacted Stainmaster Invista and have gone back and forth with them and they will not cover this problem! How ever the place I purchased this carpet is now going to take responsibility for Stainmasters product, someone should file a formal complaint about this awful carpet people are wasting their money! do not buy this carpet! Stainmaster Invista does not stand behind their product!

We had Stain Master carpet installed in our new home 20 years ago. We just had it cleaned, as we do most years, and it looks as nice as it did when it was new. It has not faded, has not frayed, released stains, and shows no wear...even in high traffic areas! We raised 2 children and have had several pets, including a dog with a problem digestive system...if you get what I mean. I am more than happy with mine.

"Stands by their warranty"
I had problem with my carpet coming untwisted and my carpet looking like a powder puff..... Invista stainmaster sent an expert to look at my carpet and they are going to honor their warranty and replace my carpet.. Thank you Stainmaster.

"Stain Master is Right!"
It definitely masters the art of stains... It keeps them, holds them and won't let them go! Worst carpet ever..... And for anyone with a stainmaster carpet - take note... If you have a pet - always say it's a "urine" stain... That gets covered... Nothing else... Not vomit (or other)....

"carpet keeps stretching"
Purchased Stainmaster frieze-type carpet and had it professionally installed through Costco in May. A few days later it was all wrinkly, so installer came back and re-stretched it. A month later it was again wrinkly. Installer is going to try stretching it again, but I don't think this will help. I believe the carpet is defective and will have to be replaced.

"Not the best"
The carpet looked wonderful in the samples. But in no time at all it had loops coming up and there are ripples all through (installed improperly or the carpeting loosened?) causing everyone to walk carefully so as not to stumble. Stays fairly clean. It has been down for a few years, but is throughout many rooms, so we have to live with it for now.

I would have never bought the carpet had I known that they don't back their product. Read the fine print before you waste your money. Not to mention that you have to have your carpet professionally cleaned yearly for their warranty. I spent $500 on the service only to have them look for a loop hole.

"Carol La Monda"
Stain master should be renamed "Stainmaster-less." Two rooms of moss green carpeting look polka dotted in saucer size white dots where puppy pee (from a ten pound dog--a Peekapoo) bleached the carpet to white. The warranty has so many exceptions that it is worthless. Some food and drink, but not all, are covered if you have a professional cleaner come every 18 months. Since my loft is only a guest bedroom, no one eats or drinks up there. Steam cleaning at home with carpet cleaner doesn't count. Very, very disappointed in this company. They sell you "a bill of goods" along with very inferior carpet. They show cute animals in their ads...don't be deceived. They are not covered.

"Don't buy Stain Master"
Garbage. Can I say more? we purchased a frize carpet for our entire condo and within 4 months we could see that it was fraying and unraveling from the top all over and in some areas it looks like a cotton ball, it's that bad. were waiting for the useless inspector to show up and take a look. It looked great in the store but now that I have it I cannot wait to get this crap out of my house. Stain master is a joke. How does carpet go bad in 4 months? Save yourself thousands of dollars and do not get this brand of flooring.

This is the worst carpet we have ever had. We put cheap carpet in our bedrooms and it cleans with no problem. We put one of the so called best stainmaster carpet in the living room and dining room and it is a master of stains. We have read that they don't back up their product and they didn't in our case.
