In the past and even today, carpet is very popular

with home owners all across the U.S.  Carpet is

the most practical, fashionable, and versatile

choice of flooring out there, as it also accounts

for more than half of all flooring purchases that

are made each and every year.  The fact is, carpet

has outsold every other type of flooring for more

than 60 years.


Carpet offers you several advantages that other

flooring options can't compete with.  Below, you

will find many of the features that carpet will

add to your home.



Carpet is the best choice you can make for your

bedroom, family room, and other areas where you

need warmth underfoot.



Both carpet and carpet padding will provide an

extra layer of much needed insulation between the

floors of your home.  Depending on the density and

weight of the carpet, it contributes to the R-value

of your home, which adds to the energy efficiency

as well.



Carpet offers a slip resistant surface that will

prevent accidents along with a natural cushion

in the event of someone falling.  For young

children and the elderly, this is very important.

Reduction in sound


Carpet will also reduce noise better than any

other type of flooring.  Carpet works to dampen

noise in three ways:

            1.  Reduces surface noise from foot traffic

            2.  Absorbs airborne sound

            3.  Blocks transmission of sound

These qualities are valuable in apartments as well

as semi-detached homes.



Adding carpet to a room can also disguise any

existing damage to the floor and also hide any

other problems such as warped floors.  The thicker

density the carpet is, the more problems it will

be able to hide.


Easy to care for

The carpets of today are more stain resistant

than they have ever been in the past, which makes

cleaning even the worst possible spills easier

than ever.  No matter type of spill it may be,

there is always a way to clean it up.
Clean air

Research has proven that carpet can indeed improve

the quality of air by trapping allergy causing

dust and allergens if it is properly cleaned and



Variety of use

Carpets aren't only for floors anymore, which is

a really great thing.  You can easily add carpet

to steps, stairs, walls, posts, and other non

level surfaces, without having to worry about it

slipping, lifting, or buckling.



Carpet is the primary foundation in almost any

room.  Because it is available in a variety of

different colors and textures, it helps to

create an unlimited number of possibilities for

decorating.  From the neutral tones to rich

solids, carpet is the first step you can take

to make your home look better than ever.


Low cost

Carpet doesn't cost a lot of money, as it offers

an economical alternative to the other types of

expensive flooring.  Even with professional

installation, you won't pay near as much as you

would for hard surfaces.  Unlike hard surfaces,

carpet can keep you comfortable if you decide

to lay down on it.


Life span

The carpets of today are very durable and can

outlast most other types of flooring available on

the market.  All you have to do is select a

type of carpet that has a life span of 5 - 30

years or more, which is very common now days.



With most manufacturers, you can get great

warranties with your carpet purchase.  This way,

you'll be protected when you install your new

carpet.  Once installed, all you have to do is

enjoy it - as the warranty will ensure that you

are very well protected.
