What you need to know about carpet

One of the most important things about carpet is the fiber it’s made of. This not only gives it the look and feel you want, but determines its characteristics as well. For instance, some fibers stand up better in high traffic areas, some resist stains and moisture, while others are created simply to be beautiful. The fact is, there is a fiber out there that will meet your specific needs, and your flooring professional can help match you with the right one.

Many homeowners are thrilled to learn that some fibers are manufactured with built-in stain protection. Some are even geared specifically towards pet stains and odors. This is great news for homes with pets and small children, as well as for those homeowners who live busy, active lifestyles and simply can’t keep up with rigorous maintenance. For tougher situations, extra stain protection can still be added after installation.
It’s very important that you do not forget the padding, or skip it in hopes of saving a bit on the budget. Believe us when we tell you, it’s just not worth it.

When it comes to installing your carpet, it’s best to allow professionals to be the ones to do the job. It’s a process that requires specialized tools and a certain degree of experience, if you want to get the most out of the carpet itself, including a longer life span. Amateur installers can make simple mistakes that can lead to seam separation, bunching, and other little problems that can drastically reduce the lifespan of this flooring.
