FAQs

What is “lightly used carpet”?

Vendors at trade shows and auto shows nationwide install premium carpeting to accompany their displays.  After only a few days of traffic, this durable, professionally-cleaned carpet is removed and shipped directly to us at Show Carpet USA.   Our selection is practically brand-new but because it is lightly used, the prices are a fraction of new carpet!

Our carpet tiles come from big offices that have moved or are remodeling. They are in very good shape and easy to do it yourself.


What is your show carpet made of?

Our used carpet is constructed of high-quality nylon. Nylon fibers are easy to clean, extremely fade resistant, and they repel stains.  Just as important, our carpet will add a new level of comfort to your home.  This carpet arrives in our showroom in standard-sized rolls: 12 feet wide by more than 50 feet long.
