Why choose carpet?
The most obvious reason to go with carpet floor is comfort, but it isn’t the only reason. Carpet’s long life and its reputation for reducing noise make it an ever-popular choice with homeowners. It lessens the surface noise of foot traffic, absorbs airborne sounds and blocks sound between floors. This makes it perfect for homes for families, especially those with children or pets. Carpet disguises many irregularities in the sub-flooring below it and when properly cleaned and maintained, carpet traps particles that can trigger allergies, improving indoor air quality.
Which carpet is right for you?
Even after you’ve chosen to go with carpet flooring, you still have to make the decision of which type of carpet to install. That decision starts with knowing your exact needs. To get started, ask yourself these questions.
- How will the room be used? There are very different wear needs for a formal dining room than for a kid’s play room. A dining room needs great stain resistance but probably doesn’t see a whole lot of foot traffic. A play room not only needs stain resistance, it needs to be soft, comfortable and durable. By pinpointing the kinds of things you’ll do in the room you’re carpeting, you’ll be able to narrow your options down to the features you need.
- How long will you be in the house? The average lifespan of residential carpet is 5-9 years, depending on the product quality and how well you maintain it. With proper maintenance, you can keep it in great shape for the full lifespan.
- Does the room have direct access to the outside? Unlike with tile or hardwood, you can’t just wipe mud or water off carpet. Rooms that might be subject to muddy shoes or the elements from the outdoors need special consideration to keep the carpet in the best shape possible.
