Honestly I haven't seen much go in here in Wisconsin. Floors would be too cold.

Had one customer actually switch back to carpet since she saw all the crap that the carpet traps sitting on her wood floor every day

We changed all the flooring in our rental house (2 years ago) which is next door to us. Carpet is good in the bedrooms, carpet is good in the LR, so I replaced that carpet/pad with new, but in the rest of the house we had vinyl plank installed. The DR, kitchen, utility room, bathroom, and pathway from the front door past the living room to the DR is now all vinyl plank flooring. All the base was removed, then re-installed, and the floor was skim coated, and vinyl glued down so all the traffic lanes will not have carpet in them.

I find I am running into homes with a better balance of flooring. Yes, it's less carpet but I always hated homes that had carpet right up to the entry doors. Most of the carpet would be fine but you just couldn't clean the entry areas to match being too soiled and worn. Now, most homes have hard surfaces going to the entries and carpet in the bedrooms, hall, stairs and sometimes the living areas. Where they don't have wall to wall, they often have area rugs. My rug business has picked up substantially. Easier jobs today and higher customer satisfaction.
