The floor is lava! Okay, not really, but in some cases and for those of us “less than stable” on our feet, it can sure seem like it. Uneven flooring, such as transitions from wood or vinyl to area rugs, can be highly dangerous for folks who may need assistance or are less than agile when getting from one room to the next. Not to mention how slick and slippery a fresh coat of floor wax or polish can make them.
Why not make the switch to carpet? It’s lush and luxurious, soft and supple under foot, making it gentler on joints and the pads of your feet. Plus, it provides much better traction than other flooring options, which in turn, prevents falls and provides a more confident yoga pose or two! And if falls do happen, the softer surface reduces injury from impact.
Carpeting also prevents falls in areas where there is a lot of rain and snow. It absorbs the moisture from shoes upon entering, making arrival safer and less work. No need to break out the mop every time you leave and return. And, no surprises left behind from visitors that can lead to misfortune.
Whether you are in your home, a business, school, hospital, or other facility, fewer falls and less severe injuries are one more reason carpet is a choice you can feel good about. Contact one of our sales reps today and get an estimate on your safety and peace of mind.
