How to Have Great Looking Carpet with Kids and Pets

Having two kids and three cats makes it a real challenge keeping carpets clean. Something is always being spilled, puked up, or dumped. Crumbs get scattered, dirt get tracked in. The spots with the most foot traffic start to show wear. I can't tell you how many times I've walked into the room to find an array of spilled drinks, crumbs, and baby spit up. Throw potty training into the mix and I'm sure even grosser messes are on the horizon. I seriously need to take out stock in carpet cleaner, or, better yet, get the new Tigressà H20 carpet by Flooring America.



Per Flooring America, Tigressà H20 is waterproof, kid proof, pet proof, and holds up against the worst stains your kids and pets can throw on it. It has advanced repel technology to dissipate odors -- even ones from pets -- within 30 minutes. The soil and stain protection it offers means that not only won't the puke stains soak in, they won't leave icky spots behind, either. The carpet is even made to withstand many years of cleaning and is designed to be durable even in high foot traffic areas. Perfect! Just in case you do happen to have an issue, Flooring America backs up their product with a wear, finish, and manufacturing with a minimum 25- to 50-year warranty. It's a carpet for your entire family. To top it off, it's made with recyclable materials.


I tested a sample piece to see for myself how the carpet adds up. It is durable, yet soft at the same time. The color is rich and texture is wonderful. (I may have been petting the carpet, it feels so nice.) I've had some cheap carpet in apartments before. Tigressà H20 is far from that. You can feel and see the quality.

Flooring America offers many colors to choose from so you can pick what works best in your home. The brownish color I tried is perfect for neutral areas. It's not dark enough to overwhelm the room, but isn't so light that the cat's fur would stand.

The pile is perfect, not to short, not too long, nothing the cats would get nails stuck in then rip up. Compared to my current carpet, you can see the quality of the Tigressà H20 easily.


When I dumped water on it, the water beaded up into a nifty puddle on top, then soaks up easily with a paper towel. Even M2's mashed sweet potatoes that I mushed into it came up easily. The sweet potatoes had lots of cinnamon and butter added, too. With some water and rubbing, the carpet came clean with just a slight damp spot. No stain remover needed. The damp spot didn't soak in at all, 5 hours later it was still there! The carpet really is watertight and totally impervious to the damp. That means that if I were to miss a spill (or baby spit up) or have to let it sit for a bit while I take care of the kids, it's not going to soak in, ruin the carpet, or stain. How awesome is that?!


Many carpets, especially ones with stain guard, have an odd, chemical smell to them. The Tigressà H20 has no scent at all. The odor resistant feature seems to work well, also, since after wiping up the sweet potatoes I still couldn't smell a thing on the carpet. Even right up against my nose, nothing. We all know I'm highly sensitive to scents, too.

Price-wise, the Tigressà H20 is very affordable. Flooring America is even running a special right now so you can get it for even cheaper. Check out your local store for more details.

I would love to have this carpet through my house. With Tigressà H20 from Flooring America, I'd have no more worry about stains, smells, spills, wearing, or anything. Plus, it'd feel so plush under my feet, like good carpet should.

  2. I just heard about this kind of carpet recently. I think this is awesome especially for little kids who tend to spill everything. If we ever replace our carpet, we will have to switch to this.

  6. I would love to have that carpet too. Every once in a while one of our cats has an accident and it always seems to happen on the carpet instead of on the linoleum. So much harder to clean carpet.

    I never considered carpets because we have small kids who constantly spill their drinks. I'll consider this when they're old enough.
