Carpet is a very common product due to its warmth, durability, and ability to easily clean. It is good for all kind of homes, but especially for homes with young children or elderly.
Carpet is easier, faster and cheaper to install than wood flooring, which must be nailed down, glued or clicked into place. Its life can be extended with frequent vacuuming and steam cleaning once a year. Be aware that it may stain and become matted over time.
Main Benefits of Carpet Flooring for Your Port Coquilam Residence
Below are the main benefits/advantages of carpet flooring for your home or office.
Carpets Provide Warmth and Comfort
Carpet provides actual thermal resistance, or R-value. In colder climates or seasons, it retains warm air longer, an energy conservation benefit. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling.
Quality Carpet Flooring Adds Beauty and Style
You can choose from many thousands of carpet styles and colors. That means your ultimate choice will reflect how you want to personalize your living space. Carpet can be a neutral foundation, or it can be a focal point with vibrant colors and stronger bolder patterns and textures. A top-quality carpet can last about 10 to 15 years.
Carpets Help Soften Slips and Falls
Carpet is ideal for cushioning our footsteps, reducing slips and falls and minimizing injuries when falls do occur. Carpet provides safety protection for the whole family, but especially for toddlers and older individuals.
Carpet Flooring Helps Reduce Noise
Big screen TVs, speaker phones, computers and modern sound systems make our homes noisy places. Carpet helps absorb these sounds. Adding a cushion pad beneath your carpet reduces noise even further. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between floors by helping to block sound transmission to rooms below. And carpet on stairs helps mask the sound of constant foot traffic.
Carpet Flooring Actually Helps Keep Air Clean
Many people say that they would rather have laminate because it is cleaner, but that is untrue because carpet traps the dirt making it easier to clean just by vacuuming. It actually acts as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen and other particles and removing them from the breathing zone.
Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve with carpet.
Carpet is One of the Lower Emitters of VOC
Eco-friendly people choose carpet because it is the lowest VOC emitter of common floor choices, and requires fewer cleaning chemicals than other floor coverings. CRI’s Green Label Plus standard has brought those VOCs down even more. In addition, carpet improves indoor air quality by trapping allergens and other particles so they can be vacuumed away.
Carpet Flooring is Easily Maintainable
Overall, carpet will maintain its life and beauty for many years when properly cleaned and maintained. In terms of both labour and cleaning supplies, carpet saves you money over the long run.
