Carpet adds benefits to your home like extra comfort and warmth. Some carpets, such as wool, are great for homes with allergy problems because they do not trap dust in their fibers, instead keeping them on top so they can be easily vacuumed. New technology has created stain-resistant carpets that make your life so much easier when the accidental spill happens.
Where Can Carpet Be Installed?
Carpet is suitable in home settings where there isn't significant moisture or heavy foot traffic. Popular places for carpet are bedrooms and living rooms. We don't recommend installing carpet in kitchens, bathrooms, or basements.
In commercial settings, be sure to choose a durable commercial carpet option. Commercial carpets are stain resistant, and they are built to handle heavy traffic.
What Are the Different Types of Carpet?
Carpet fibers determine how your carpet will function. Synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester can be made to be super durable and ultra-plush. Wool carpets have their own special benefits like being flame resistant and sound absorbing. Piles are the fibers twisted up. There are cut piles, loop piles, and even cut and loop piles.
Carpet has been made easier to clean and maintain which means you have more time to do what you love. You can install it in bedrooms, living rooms, even playrooms and staircases. Be sure to stop in our showroom to see our full collection of carpets.
