"Do not buy"
I can say I was not surprised when the first review I read was my
scenario to the T! I too bought this inferior Trafficmaster carpet at
Home Depot. Manufacturer claim was that this carpet was designed to
handle high traffic areas, lifetime stain warranty, easy to clean and
maintain. After a couple of weeks the carpet looked worse than the stuff
we had for over 15 years. Would not vacuum clean, dark spots where
people walked. Tried carpet shampoo machine and scrubbing on hands and
knees to no avail. Contacted Home Depot, they contacted manufacturer who
just said "I didn't follow the warranty policy and get a professional
carpet cleaning company (my husband cleaned carpets for a living so he
knows how to use a carpet machine) it was also a "oh well-you lose". No
you lose as I will tell as many people as I can. I also told Home Depot
that they were wrong to sell this carpet for stairs. The loop grade is
too wide and only attracts the dirt/staining more! Home Depot would not
resolve the problem and replace either. I will not purchase
Trafficmaster or any type of flooring from Home Depot again.

"Do not buy"
Bought this stuff at Home Depot. Manufactures claim was that this carpet
was designed to handle high traffic areas, lifetime stain warranty, pet
stain warranty, easy to clean and maintain. After 1 week the carpet
looked worse than the stuff we had for over 15 years. Would not vacuum
clean, dark spots where people walked. Tried carpet shampoo machine, steam
mop and scrubbing on hands and knees to no avail. Contact Home Depot, they
contacted manufacturer who just said "oh well". Still hoping Home Depot
will resolve this problem and replace this. If not, then filing a
claim with BBB and Consumer Protection Agency!

I've had my Trafficmaster carpet for 2 years now. It's been nothing but
a nightmare and is full of stains and odors. A simple spill of water
leaves dark brown stains in spots and there are random sour smelling
odors. It's very noticeable even though I've had it steam cleaned
several times. I would never recommend this product to anyone. It's been
a huge regret and waste of money!

"Turns To Dust Under Vacuum."
This carpet is extremely uncomfortable underneath your feat. You might as well be walking outside on the cement. It's nearly impossible to completely clean up a spill, leaving the carpet with a somewhat sour smell, and an extremely aesthetically unpleasing pattern of spills throughout my home. The color looked great at first, but it didn't take long for our 5 windows in the house to make an interesting fade pattern where the sun hits our Traffic Master ribbed carpet. There's an upside, which is that our couches don't leave intents in the carpet after they've been sitting there for a few months. We had that problem last time with out Martha Stewart 'plush carpet. Also it vacuums extremely easy considering how thin it is, but it also turns to dust when I try to vacuum. Using the carpet cleaner on it is nearly impossible.

"Cool Sports Carpet"
Today I am going to review my Traffic Master Chicago Cubs carpet. Yes, I did say my Chicago Cubs carpet. I was wanting to put carpet in my den and found it at the local Home Depot. This carpet does require you to special order it from the factory. It took about a month to get it shipped out to my house. Thou I have to say, it was well worth the wait to see this awesome carpet. The other cool thing is that you put it down in squares and there is padding on it. I have little to nothing to say anything bad about the carpet. It has so far stayed down with the supplied carpet glue. There also has been no wear that I can notice over the few months that I have owned it. I would recommend this carpet to any sports fan. Even if your not a big sports fan, this carpet is still awesome. I would buy it again if I ever had to replace it. I hope that helps everyone in internet land and I hope you have a nice day.

"Nice Carpet for your putt putt green"
Im going let you all know about my TrafficMaster carpet that I bought around a year ago. It was they type that you put down like floor tile, but it's carpet. Installing the stuff was pretty quick. I just had to make sure the surface was clean. I bought the carpet to make my own putt putt course in my backyard. Over the course of this year, it has seen massive rains, a earthquake, and 2 rounds of golf a week. The only issue I had with the carpet is the glue came up in a couple places, but was fixed with some rubber cement. Just clean the ground under it, then apply the paste. I would recommend this carpet to any one of my friends or even you people out there on the inter webs. I would just look out for the glue coming up if you use the carpet for a outside purpose. I hope you all liked my review and I hope it helps pick the carpet of your dreams.

My stairs and hallways required a tough carpet that can hold up to heavy duty traffic. They have not let me down!
