Carpet gives your home a classic elegance that is both warm and inviting. For years, customers have experienced this floor covering for themselves, and many of them simply will not return to hard surface floor coverings. Why? Because they have found that carpet meets their needs in a way that no other material can.
It’s true, there are some homeowners who choose and even need, a harder floor surface. But let’s see if carpet might be the right choice for you.
To start with, this is a flooring that has a relatively long lifespan, when compared with some others. Ultimately, the life of this material will depend upon several factors, including the type of backing and fiber you choose, the traffic levels in your home, and how well you keep up with maintenance and general care. You can also take measures to extend the lifespan of your flooring even further by making use of area rugs, choosing a fiber that is pretreated with stain protection, or adding it yourself after installation and making sure you choose a fiber that is matched well for your home’s traffic level. This is the perfect flooring for homes with children and elderly people, as it adds a certain safety that other materials can’t provide. Not only is it a soft place to land, but should a fall occur, it can keep falls from happening in the first place. On hard surface flooring, footy pajamas, walkers, canes and wheelchairs can slide away quickly. That’s something that just doesn’t happen on carpet.
