Shaw PET carpeting? Is this the bad old stuff?
Hi -- I'm really confused now. I went to a carpet retailer, found some carpet samples to bring home for DH and I to take to our new home and decide on. I liked the Mohawk SmartStrand in the store, but both samples of that are the wrong color. The store is 85 miles away, one way, so I was hoping not to have to go back there again. (We live out in the country.)Turns out that of the ones I brought home, we liked the look of Shaw "Companionship" best. The salesman in the store told me it was on "special," which made me suspicious. After reading some threads here, I see on the back of the sample it says "100@ BCF Cleartouch PET polyester." Is this the bad old polyester that crushes badly,etc., you folks are talking about?
We're empty nesters, are going to be getting 2 cats, have a very light-filled house with big windows, so stains, fading, and carpet crushing down are our concerns, as I suppose they are everybody else's.
Thanks for any advice.
