Bakersfield Carpet: 3 things to consider

Looking for a Bakersfield carpet company but not sure how to choose? As one of the longest lasting Bakersfield carpet companies, we understand the journey you’re about to undertake, and we want to make sure you have everything you need to make quality decisions about your flooring. Here are three things you should consider before you make a decision about your carpet.

Does this Bakersfield carpet company have financing available?

You can’t exactly get new carpet if you can’t afford it — so obviously, one of the very first things you need to consider is your budget and whether or not you need financing. Many big box retailers (like Lowe’s and Home Depot), offer financing; however, good deals can be hard to come by and interest rates are usually pretty high. With a local Bakersfield carpet company such as ourselves, you can find competitive financing and pricing available (including deferred interest loans and fixed payments).

Does this flooring company offer installation?

If you can find a Bakersfield carpet company that will help you from financing to product to installation, then you’re golden. It can make the home improvement process very difficult and frustrating if you have to deal with multiple vendors to achieve one outcome. But when you deal with a flooring store like Carpet Cave, we’ll help you with everything — that includes carpet installation in Bakersfield.

Can this flooring store find you quality discounts? 

It’s true — big box stores have close ties with some pretty large flooring vendors. However, it’s typical that they’ll only provide discounts for one or two of those vendors. This is because they have advertising and marketing incentives tied into that relationship. And not to mention, many flooring associates at these stores make commission off your purchase (meaning, they don’t exactly want to give you a discount). But this works differently when you deal with some of the best carpet stores locally. 

For example, we have decades of combined experience providing Bakersfield with flooring products and installation, and in the process, we’ve built up strong relationships with a variety of vendors (not just one or two). We are able to hunt down the best flooring deals for our customers, and we’ll do it with a smile. We want you to get the best deal possible, and we’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

3 reasons to stick to a Bakersfield flooring professional

If you’re looking for a Bakersfield flooring professional, then you actually need to find a Bakersfield flooring professional. (Weird, right?) In other words, don’t just settle for anyone. You’re spending your hard-earned money to better your home and standard of living, so make sure you find someone who can help you find the best deal, the best flooring, and the best Bakersfield carpet installation.

Here are just a few of the reasons to track down a Bakersfield flooring professional such as Carpet Cave.

You’re speaking to someone with experience.

It’s fun to remember the good ol’ days when you were young and could get drunk off one beer. But when you’re dealing with your home, your money, and your time, you don’t want to be reminded of puberty and all the inexperience that comes with it. So if you’re looking for a flooring store in Bakersfield you can rely on, then you need to head to Carpet Cave. We have decades of combined experience helping Kern County residents and businesses find the best way to fulfill their flooring needs.

You can find better discounts.

Sure, you can find good deals at the Bakersfield Home Depot or Lowe’s. But we can help you find great deals. Our partnerships with flooring manufacturers go way back, and our ties to the community go back even further. Long story short, we aren’t just capable of hunting down good deals for you — we want to hunt down good deals for you.

You’re supporting local businesses.

Needless to say, when you buy from a local flooring store like Carpet Cave, you’re supporting local businesses in the community. Instead of helping a big box store push out their next big ad, you’re helping a team of Bakersfield natives support their families, build their dreams, and enrich their futures.

Shaw’s New LifeGuard Waterproof Backing Barrier

Shaw’s New “LifeGuard” The First Residential Carpet Innovation of its kind.

LifeGuard is a revolutionary protection system that covers the entire product, from face fiber to backing. Carpets featuring LifeGuard are treated with Shaw’s patented R2X Stain and Soil Resistance protection, the standard of excellence in the industry, while a thermoplastic backing provides a waterproof barrier that prevents liquids from soaking into the carpet padding and subfloor.


One of the biggest threats to any floor covering is excessive moisture. Liquid spills and pet accidents can be an everyday occurrence, and some spills can initially go unnoticed especially on carpet, soaking through to the backing, padding and even the subfloor. Certain liquids, such as pet urine, can cause unpleasant odors and are extremely difficult to remove if not properly cleaned. Conventional backings can also be damaged when exposed to prolonged moisture and caustic

Some new carpet products promise protection against pet accidents, but they must be used with a pad that serves as a moisture barrier. Liquids still soak through the carpet backing and spread, leaving stains and potential odors.

LifeGuard’s patented backing system, on the other hand, keeps these liquids from seeping into the backing, thus allowing easier cleanup and protection against odor-causing spills and pet accidents.


Following the recommended hot-water extraction method of carpet cleaning, LifeGuard-backed products dry 3 times faster.


Shaw’s new collection of carpets featuring LifeGuard comprises the first residential styles to offer a waterproof barrier. Treated with Shaw’s patented R2X Stain and Soil Resistance System, the collection’s styles already boast an exceptional level of liquid stain resistance, and the LifeGuard backing provides an unprecedented additional level of protection. LifeGuard also greatly reduces wicking of stains and offers homeowners the luxury of more time to discover and clean up spills. Carpets with LifeGuard are much easier to clean and maintain.


Carpets featuring LifeGuard and R2X combat household odors. Smells such as cigarette smoke and odors from pet urine stains, once removed, are quickly and effectively dissipated.

LifeGuard styles dissipate the odors 6 times faster than many competitive carpets, eliminating odors in 30 minutes or less.
