Carpet Question Corner #10: I heard the phrase “texture retention” recently. What does that mean?

Carpet’s texture retention is its ability to withstand a surface level change in appearance as a result of foot traffic. The Carpet and Rug Institute has a texture retention rating system, which tests and grades carpets in a laboratory setting. Although accelerated test methods do not exactly compare with actual performance, they do give an indication of a carpet’s ability to withstand crushing and matting.
