Carpet usually gets a bad rap when it comes to consumer opinion. Years of promoting stain resistance and scrambling to have the lowest price has ultimately served to lower public perception of its value. People continue to compare it to hard surface flooring costing twice as much, while forgetting it’s unique properties that make it one of the best flooring values in the market today.

    • Carpet will hide a lot of substrate irregularities. This saves in costly subfloor preparation.
    • Carpet represents value. It is still probably the most cost-effective floor covering you can buy. But that does not mean you should buy cheap carpet. It is important to match the “right” carpet with your traffic and lifestyle.
    • Carpet is easy to maintain. Usually weekly vacuuming is enough. Combined with professional steam cleaning once a year, it’s all you need to do! What’s easier than vacuuming? For spills and stains, a warm water/soap solution, and blotting (not rubbing) the stain usually works.

 

 

  • carpet tips dark rich patternCarpet does not do well in the outdoors. It holds moisture and succumbs to mold and mildew. It fades or blackens when exposed to direct sunlight and heat.
  • Carpet is not recommended for hypoallergenic people. Besides the filtering of dust and allergens, highly sensitive people have to deal with that “new carpet” smell. The emission of low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air, which although less than most paints, usually dissipate within a few days or a few hours if the home is ventilated.
  • Carpet does not do well with wheelchairs or walkers. Usually, the wheels of the chair will crush and destroy the carpet yarn. Particularly, at pivot points where the chair turns. In office environments with roller chairs we strongly recommend the use of chair mats for this same reason.
  • Carpet is not recommended in high-soil traffic areas. The fact remains that carpet is basically a fabric, similar in nature to the clothes that we wear. Although constructed to perform under foot, it is not meant to perform in conditions of extreme soiling and traffic. Hard surface flooring would probably be a better choice. However, it should be noted that there are such things as entry mats specifically constructed for this purpose.

  • Shag is back with a vengeance. But it’s a lot more sophisticated than it was thirty years ago. This time it offers subtle earth tones and multi-tones in fibers that are both soft and durable.
  • Berbers remain strong. Patterned and multi-looped Berbers in multi-tone colors are still favored in high use areas of the home. Nylons are popular but low-luster olefin fiber still commands the dominant choice for this wool-look carpet. The fact is, Berber still gives you more bang for your buck.
  • Friezes are hot. A Frieze is a highly twisted cut pile carpet with short fibers that tend to curl in different directions, hiding footprints and vacuum marks. Friezes are good for high traffic situations, especially when tufted at higher densities.

  • Green fibers and technologies are slow in coming in the Carpet industry. P.E.T fiber recycled from pop bottles has been around for years, but performance concerns limit it’s popularity. Type 6 nylon can be recycled into new fiber but the facilities are still limited. And we have yet to see samples of carpets made from corn fiber?
    • Possibly the greenest thing we could do is focus on better quality carpets that stand up for more years and therefore reduce the strain on our resources and landfills.

  • Look for a carpet that is short, tight, well twisted and made from a premium fiber. Forget about the weight. It’s how they make the yarn and how densely they tuft the carpet that counts.
  • Look for multi-toning in your carpet. While solids are easier to decorate with, a multi-colored pattern will show less traffic and soiling.
  • Look for a good twist and density.

Whether you are renovating a bedroom, a living room or a basement, carpet is always a classic flooring choice. Carpet is often chosen for rooms that people spend a lot of time in to provide comfort and relaxation. Therefore, bedrooms and living rooms are often covered with carpet so that the room feels softer and more welcoming. When living rooms are floored with hardwood or vinyl, you will often see an area rug on the ground to give the room a cozier feel. Basements are often covered in carpet because the cement floor beneath it is cold so the purpose of the carpet is to maintain warmth in the room.

There are many benefits to installing carpet in any room of your home. Firstly, carpet is safer than most flooring options because it provides a small cushion between objects and the foundation. This can help break someone’s fall if they slip, reduce noise in the room, or also protect the floor when sliding around heavy furniture. Second, carpet is easy to clean. Having a carpet floor is convenient when you have small children, pets or any messy habits because it will hide the dirt in its fibers. Then, all it takes is a quick vacuum to clean up any spills or dirt on the surface. After a while it might be a good idea to steam clean the carpet to ensure all dust and dirt are cleaned from it. Finally, carpet lasts a long time. If well taken care of and cleaned regularly, carpet can last for years and still look brand new. It is key to clean and wash the carpet regularly, move furniture often so that it does not damage the carpet underneath and to lift furniture when it is being moved instead of dragging or pushing it.

If you purchase quality carpet and take care of it as suggested above, this flooring choice will last you for decades. Carpet will bring warmth, comfort and cushion to your home and its design.
