@alexbowers321,
If you are looking for "durable and easy to clean" definitely stay away from carpets; anything is easier, wood, tile, or laminated.
(but there are pros and cons to every choice)

I think this may be spam.

@Old Goat,
It's probably a viral marketing attempt.

This is the only post by this member. Note the tags, which specify Richmond Hill (a neighborhood of Toronto) and Toronto.

@roger,
sometimes

a little google search based on the original tags gave me a little more info - sometimes people join because they've got a bridge to sell

@alexbowers321,
Just did the same thing. Although more expensive, went with hardwood because (1) classier in my opinion, (2) much easier to keep clean, (3) harder for pets to foul, and (4) versatility...you can always put a throw-rug on hardwood, but you can't put hardwood on a carpet.

I prefer carpets. Easy to clean and last a long time if given proper care.

@Miller,
We used to have carpets in our hallway; it was a nightmare trying to keep it clean, so I covered it with a plastic runner. Three years ago when we had our house completely renovated, and we replaced the hallway carpets with wood flooring. That solution was the best decision we ever made.

According to me laminated flooring is the right choice for cleaning and it is durable also .

@SimonFarquharson,
You've got a point there but i would still prefer using carpet, carpet provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling and I would love to always have that around my home.

@alexbowers321,
if you want to clean your home then forget the carpet or hardwood because these are not easy to washable. I would like to suggest you Tiles because tiles are easy to washable and if you got break any tile then it can be easily change.

Carpets r a lot better for the acoustics & comfort of walking
(especially with good foam rubber padding).
