Where Can Carpet Be Installed?
Since carpet is made to be durable and lived on, it is very easy to clean and care for. Carpet is traditionally installed in bedrooms and living rooms. They can handle a lot more activity though and can be installed in children’s playrooms, on staircases, and in hallways. We offer carpets that are resistant to staining, wear, and fade. Those types of carpets can be installed in heavily trafficked areas like hallways and staircases. Be sure to stop in our showroom to see our full collection of carpets.
Types of Carpet
Carpet is made from fibers, and those fibers can have a large impact on how a carpet can look, feel, and perform in your home. Synthetic carpet fibers include nylon, polyester, triexta, and olefin. These fibers are made to be durable and some even feature incredible built in stain resistance. Wool carpets have their own special benefits like being sound absorbing and also are hypoallergenic by trapping dust until it can be vacuumed up. Piles are the fibers twisted up, which plays a role in the styling of the carpet. There are cut piles, loop piles, and even cut and loop piles.
The most important decision you have is choosing the right carpet type for your home. There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
Benefits of Carpet
Just like any other flooring, carpet features some pretty awesome benefits. Some carpets are great for homes with allergy problems where the dust and dirt stay on the surface of the fiber so it can be easily vacuumed and stay out of your breathing zone. We also offer stain-resistant carpets that make your life so much easier when the accidental spill happens. We offer our own exclusive carpet brands that feature H2O™ technology which makes them entirely waterproof.
