Mentor homeowners appreciate plush in areas of the home where they go to relax and unwind. A master bedroom, kids playroom, or living room would all benefit from the luscious feeling of plush carpet. The classic look and comfort is also great for areas where you are likely to host guests. Furthermore, plush has the added benefit of providing extra insulation and warmth to your space.



Things to Consider

Much like other cut carpets, plush is known to show vacuum tracks or footprint marks. Heavier furniture can leave indents or marks on your carpet as well, but you can avoid this by occasionally rearranging your furniture. Plush also has the tendency to stain and absorb spills easier than other short or looped styles of carpet. Spills must be cleaned immediately to prevent long-term damage. Plush carpet can be stain-treated, which will benefit your carpet by keeping it clean and extending its lifespan. We recommend deep cleaning your carpets annually to refresh its beauty and remove any harmful particles from deep in the fibers.
