Why Choose Carpet for Your Home or Business?
While carpet can serve as a neutral backdrop or an eye-catching focal point, it offers several benefits beyond its
visual appeal. Overall, carpet is easier to maintain than hard flooring. Different colors can help hide dirt and stains, making your routine cleaning easier.
It can also help you reduce your energy bills each month, providing your home with natural insulation. You won’t have
to rely on your heater as much in the winter because your carpeting will help retain the warm air.
Carpet can also make your home or office quieter since it’s a natural sound
blocker. It offers cushioning for walking and protection when slips and falls happen, which is ideal for homes with
young children and older adults.
Depending on the type of carpet you choose, it can last between five and 15 years. There are many signs that you should replace carpet, like faded hues and flat piles.
You should also remember the differences between residential and commercial carpets. Commercial
carpet is the most durable and economical choice. While it’s as aesthetically pleasing as residential carpet, it
isn’t as plush. This type of carpeting can be broadloom or tiles.
Carpet tiles are pre-cut sections of carpet that adhere to the floor, while broadloom carpet comes
in rolls that professionals attach to carpet padding and cut to size. Both offer easy installation, but tiles are
the easiest, which makes them cost less.
Depending on the type of carpet you choose and its features, it can also offer specific benefits, including the
