Whether you have just purchased a new home, or are getting ready to replace the flooring in your current home—you may be wondering if carpet flooring is the best choice for you and your family. Below is the information you need to know to decide which Scottsdale flooring option is best for you.
When comparing carpet to any other type of flooring, you certainly have far more options available to choose from. This includes everything from colors and patterns, to texture and fibers. You even have many options when it comes to how plush you want your carpet to be.
With proper care, carpet lasts an average of 10 years. Proper care includes weekly vacuuming, spot cleaning as needed, and shampooing at least once each year. Carpet in high traffic areas, such as the entry way, may wear out sooner—but you can minimize wear by placing runners or area rugs in high traffic areas.
Many choose carpet flooring because it offers a large selection of colors and fibers designed to blend in well with your home’s décor. However, the comfort of carpet can’t be ignored. Carpet is softer and warmer when walking barefoot, and even provides an extra layer of insulation. Carpet provides soundproofing from one floor to the next, and you are less likely to slip and fall on carpet, especially if it wet.
If you avoid carpet due to asthma and allergies, you may be happy to hear that carpet technology has changed. The new low VOC carpet flooring emits less toxins in the air, and is designed to act as a passive air filter. With regular cleaning, you may even see your symptoms improve.
Another thing to take into consideration when choosing the flooring for your home is that you don’t have to have the same flooring throughout. You may opt for wood flooring in most rooms, but place carpet flooring in the bedrooms to provide extra warmth and comfort. Carpet flooring is also ideal for the cooler rooms in your home, such as your finished basement or attic.
As you can see, there are many benefits to choosing carpet flooring, but it is really about what is the best choice for you and your family. If you need help deciding, give Scottsdale Flooring America a call today so that we can help you to determine the best choice.
