There are several options for flooring, each with its own pros and cons. Tile is universally popular because of its timeless, trend-cutting look. Tile doesn’t go out of style quickly, especially if it is medium-sized. Tile also has the advantage of being incredibly durable and resistant to stains, and is very easy to keep clean. This near-perfect, low-maintenance flooring has the drawbacks of being cold in winter and hard all the time. Because of these comfort factors, carpet is another popular choice.
Although carpet is more comfortable, it falls behind tile in almost every other area. Carpet is harder to clean, easier to stain and eventually shows wear, especially in high-traffic parts of the house, such as entryways and hallways. Scottsdale Flooring America has a variety of carpets that are resistant to stains and wear, to combat these drawbacks.
Karastan is a popular brand of carpet carried by Scottsdale Flooring America. It is a great choice for several reasons. Firstly, the fibers in Karastan carpet are treated with a proprietary formula that is hydrophobic. This means that instead of soaking in and staining the carpet, water-based foreign liquids tend to bead up and pool near the surface. Clean-up with a damp rag is then much easier, as the vast majority of the liquid is pulled out of the carpet fibers.
Karastan also comes with a warranty in the rare event that carpet is ruined through wear and tear.
Warranties on Karastan carpets are available in 25 year, 10 year or retention plans. These cover wear on the carpet and generally do not cover pet stains or other extenuating circumstances.
Karastan Carpet comes in a variety of deep, rich colors which resist fading. A variety of styles are also available, from a close, trim cut to longer, plush options. Your family will enjoy years of beautiful flooring.
