The Many Benefits of Carpet

Homeowners who have previous experience with carpet are often loyal to this one and only soft surface flooring. Not only is it a one-of-a-kind underfoot feel, but it also provides benefits that are only available with this material. While some homeowners are put off by the possibility of stains, some homeowners know that stain protection is one of the newer benefits in many of these materials. It’s also a product that can easily be matched with your existing decor, with the opportunity to choose something different for every space. Overall, you’ll love what this flooring can mean for you, so be sure to spend some time learning more about it.

Carpet for So Many Reasons

In addition to the amazing and very popular underfoot feel of carpet, you’ll also get a much safer environment, especially with both young and old residents. This material provides a very stable surface that allows walking aides to stay in place. It can also help to alleviate falls or diminish the risk of serious injury if they do happen. This factor alone can be enough to make up your mind, but there’s so much more.

Carpet has always offered excellent heat retention. Both the material itself and its underpadding act as extra layers of insulation to hold the heat in, meaning your furnace doesn’t have to struggle to maintain the temperatures inside your home. You’ll stay warmer through the cold months and you’ll still see savings on your energy bill once these floors have been in place for a few weeks.

Noise reduction is another coveted feature of this material and it works especially well between floors. If your kids have an upstairs bedroom, you’ll notice the difference right away. It also cuts down the sound of ambient noise, clicking shoe heels and rambunctious pets that love to be active indoors.

Carpet installation guidelines

The following are general guidelines that should be followed prior to the installation of your beautiful, new flooring. By following these guidelines, you can ensure a trouble-free carpet installation.

Door cutting: Our carpet installers will gladly remove hinged doors and replace them after new flooring is installed.
Moldings: Baseboard moldings, in most installations, can be left in place. Our installers will work with the molding, but cannot be responsible for breakage and scratches.
Removing your existing flooring: You will need to know how you will dispose of your old flooring before installers arrive. If you are going to remove the old carpet and pad yourself, please leave the existing tack strip down only if replacing with carpet.
Color changes and shading: Many of today’s high luster carpet fabrics display a light or dark shade difference in color depending on the direction the carpet is laid in the room.
Carpet pattern matching: Due to the nature of the manufacturing process, most print and multi-tone patterns are impossible to match exactly. Many of these styles will require additional yardage to achieve the closest match possible.
Warmth & space, please: Installers will work in areas other than the room(s) being laid with new flooring in order to prepare and store the new floor covering during installation. Typically, this will be a garage, patio or carport. Please be sure there is electricity handy and the temperature is at least 65 degrees in the rooms to be installed.
Material waste: Every installation has material waste; these leftover pieces are most common in irregular rooms, or when stairs and halls are recovered.
Carpet seams: In order to properly install your new flooring, cutting and seaming are quite common. Today’s heat-bonded seams are as strong as the rest of the carpet; however, the seams themselves are not invisible. Our installers take great pride in making the seams as inconspicuous as possible.

Room installation guidelines

Dining rooms and dens: Remove all of your breakables (plates, vases, lamps, and collectibles) prior to moving the actual furniture; make sure all electrical components are disconnected before you attempt to mover your stereo, computer, VCR or TV. Our installers are not responsible for reconnecting these items.
Kitchen & utility areas: Disconnect your washer, dryer and all gas appliances. Our installers are not responsible for disconnecting or reconnecting any appliances.
Bedrooms: Beds need to be stripped prior to installation. Installers will dismantle the beds if necessary.
Bathrooms: If vinyl is installed, please arrange for the bowl to be removed prior to the installers’ arrival.
