Empire Today installed carpet in my living room about four months ago. Besides the inordinate amount of fuzz constantly being put out by the carpet, spreading out all over my house, and clogging my vacuum cleaner, I've noticed that certain higher traffic areas of the living room are beginning to "pill" or mat.
That's not something I expect of practically brand-new carpet that I paid a not-so-cheap price for. I began to suspect that I'd been ripped off, so I googled the phrase "Empire Today Carpeting consumer complaints" and was not too particularly surprised by the many other similar complaints about their substandard carpeting.
I'm not really sure what I'll do next...I don't really want them replacing this crummy piece of carpet with another equally crummy one; and somehow, I doubt that I'll be able to get any kind of a refund or even any sympathy, based on the horrible customer service stories I've just read...best thing I can do is to warn others who are thinking of using Empire - PLEASE DON'T !!!!!!!!! -Niki, Oklahoma City
