    All,
    Below is my order of priority of what I am looking for in a carpet:

    a. Supreme Stain resistance (with 2 messy kids at home who drop anything on the floor from chocolate milk to indian curry)
    b. Durability for the next 20+ years at least
    c. Softness
    d. Best value for money

    I have been considering phenix nylon smartstrand, Dreamweaver, Mohawk. Met another carpet guy the other day who was suggesting Masland, Fabrica, or Dixie. These three seemed much more pricier.
    Can someone suggest what would work for me? Also, is there a guide that compares these various brands?

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    You'll want a nylon carpet for sure. Every store prices carpet different, just depends on your area. I have 30 year old wool and it performs well also.

    Thanks so much. I am looking at nylons only. Just that there are too many brands and such a huge price range which is overwhelming for me :)

    My recommendation would be Mohawk SmartStrand. Excellent durability, almost impossible to stain and very soft.

    I've had great success selling Smartstrand. Very happy with customer feedback. However, I noticed they said that the kids spill anything including Indian curry (one of my favorite ethnic dishes). If you've ever had it or cooked with it, it stains nearly anything. I would be interested to see if it Smartstrand held up to it.

    Thanks much for the response...one question though, how do you compare the durability of smart strand against the nylon ones?

    I am waiting for smart strand samples to be sent to my home from a dealer. Will test it out and share results with the group :)

    Smartstrand is a great product. I sell tons of it, and it never fails to impress. Durability and clean-ability are awesome.
