Is the rhino living on that triexta silk just a marketing thing or is is the real deal? My customer is buying about 3k sq ft of it to put in her house and asked me what I thought.

Tell her to pay up and buy the best quality nylon she can afford.
I did tell her that. She said it was going in the upstairs bedrooms only and she was gonna put 8lb pad underneath it. I told her she might get 10yrs out of it if no shoes are trampling on it

You can tell them that all day long but they inevitably succumb to the lies the salesman tells her.
Ive come to the conclusion that carpet salesman know nothing about Carpet Care. Many still promote ChemWho. They only know which carpet will make them the most Commission.

The whole rhino demonstration is misleading at several levels:

1. There is nothing that says the carpet was free from odor afterward.

2. The bottom of the rhino's hoofs are flat, so they don't cause the wear caused by regular foot traffic.

3. Mud, rhino feces, and rhino urine are all water based materials that easily rinse from polyester and triexta. Now if they had let someone change the oil on their motorcycle in that room, the results would be different.

Great marketing and great deception.

I may be wrong but I don't think there was any underlay in the rhino's pen.
