If anyone in your family has ever had carpet, then you’re likely to already know what a warm, inviting feel it offers. The warmth underfoot makes it a great material to have on your floors, especially in the colder months and if there are children in the home. Whether we like it or not, children spend a great deal of time on the floor, and this is one way to make sure they are comfortable.
Another thing you might notice if you have children, especially the older ones, as well as hard surface flooring, is the increased noise level. With this softer material, you will notice a drastic reduction is noise throughout your home, as it tends to soak up the sound waves before they travel very far. You’ll probably notice an even bigger difference if your home has more than one level, as the noise between floors is cut down as well.
If staining and odors are a primary concern of yours, we are happy to let you know that some brands come with built in protection against these factors. Some are rated for normal, everyday stains while others are geared specifically for the tough stains and odors that can be associated with pets in the home. Along the same lines, you can also purchase carpet made with hypoallergenic fibers, especially to relieve allergy sufferers.
We suggest regular vacuuming, as dirt can often sift down into your carpet where stains and odors can accumulate. Also, it’s important to have carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year, or every eighteen months at the latest.
