A very good quality nylon carpet, with good padding and expert installation, should cost between $25 and $30 a yard.

The ROI Calculation is based on typical carpet at about $27.50 / sq. yard vs. toxic free recycled or all natural carpet at $36 / sq. yd for one 300 sq. ft. room (33 Yards of Carpet). Since toddlers, young children, and their friends often play directly on the carpet they are most vulnerable to toxic elements.

The ROI Calculation is based on the need for two household members to go to the doctor each year, with a co-pay may be $25 each, or if you had to buy any respiratory medicine you'll save. Long term health is not even factored into the savings.
