There's a good reason why carpet is such a sought-after choice. It gives any room a warm, elegant look and has countless functional benefits. Here are some things to know about carpet installation.
The craft is constantly evolving
Technological advances enable carpet mills to enlarge color palettes and create digital patterning where dye is injected during the manufacturing process; this "bakes it in" through the entire fiber rather than sitting at the top, resulting in increased color fastness, less fading.
Modern technology has also enabled them to create sustainable, hypoallergenic, and pet-and-kid friendly versions. As a result, our carpet store has a wide selection from manufacturers like Mohawk, Karastan, Dream Weaver, Godfrey Hirst, with enhanced abilities like PureColorⓇ, SmartStrand, and the Kashmere fibers.
Padding is important
It does a lot more than give you that bouncy, cushiony feeling underfoot. It protects the rug from the bare floor, which, in turn, increases longevity.
Carpet can improve indoor air quality
Yes, even if you have allergies and asthma, you can have carpeting. Vacuuming removes surface dirt, so what’s left gets trapped into fibers and doesn't circulate. Carpet is also one of the lowest emitters of VOCS (volatile organic compounds), harmful substances that also exacerbate respiratory problems.
Professional cleaning increases lifespan
Even if you think the rug is too new to need it! Vacuuming only gets surface dirt, and soil can be sharp and fray fibers. What's more, the professionals use high-powered fans and, if it isn't dried quickly, mold and mildew can start growing in as little as 12 hours.
Carpet can insulate noise & temperature
The cushioning eliminates sounds from beeping devices, footsteps, and muffled conversations, crucial for sleep! Rugs (and padding) also retain, as opposed to transferring, heat and cool to give the feeling of warmth and coziness.
