Choosing carpet for your home

Carpet is a one of a kind flooring that simply has no rival. It has certain benefits that no other floor covering can match, and there are those who would accept no alternative. You might wonder why that is, and we’re going to share a few of those key factors with you. If you’ve been a long time hard surface flooring customer, you may not realize how different your floors can be with carpet. You definitely owe it to yourself to check it out.

What you need to know about carpet

There are some primary considerations you need to know about carpet, right off the bat. There are also some myths that are worth alleviating quickly as well. We will start with those.

One myth is that you simply can’t have a floor covering like this with small children or pets in the home. However, stains associated with these are common to a household, like spilled juice or pet accidents, and there is hope!

Thanks to new technology, manufacturers are able to build stain protection right into the carpet fibers themselves. There are even special protectants geared specifically towards pet stains and odors.
Another myth you need to know about is the one that says you really don’t need padding underneath your soft flooring. Some DIY homeowners have the best intentions, hoping to save a bit on the budget, and skip the padding.

However, this can greatly reduce the lifespan of your carpet. Not only does it lead to bunching and premature seam separation, but it also contributes to wear and tear that can include unsightly bald spots in high traffic areas. Aside from choosing the appropriate fiber, padding is the next most important step in this process.

We also advise that you use professional installers for your carpet installation. You might save a bit of money initially by doing it yourself, but there are a great many problems that can occur as a result. Be sure to speak to your flooring professional, who can explain this in more detail.
