While choosing a carpet for basement, the most important criteria to keep in mind are –
(a) to have a moisture resistant material
(b) easy to remove in case of flooding and
(c) easy to clean.
One of the best choices is a low pile carpet which is less absorbent and quick in drying.
Think about using a carpet tile instead of broadloom (wall to wall/ rolled product). Carpet tiles will be easy to remove!
For cleaning, stain resistance and chemical resistance– carpet made from synthetic materials should be your first choice.
Not having a wet or leaky basement is a top priority OR think of using other flooring materials like vinyl/ laminate instead of carpet!
