What Are the Benefits of Having Carpet?


Carpet comes with many, many fringe benefits.


While there are more flooring options than ever before, carpet has been preferred for homes and businesses for many decades. Modern innovation continues to bring new and exciting ways to enjoy carpet. Today’s shoppers will be thrilled to find carpet that’s softerstain-resistant, waterproof, and long-lasting.  


Modern carpet has many attractive features, including:  


  • Coziness
  • Comfort
  • Seasonal Insulation
  • Energy Conservation
  • Affordability
  • Easy Installation
  • Sound Insulation
  • Quieter Footsteps
  • Fewer Allergens


What Types of Carpet Are There?


Today’s homeowners can choose among five types of carpet: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush options.



  • Level Loop is woven from yarns that are left with their loops at the ends, creating a smooth surface that disguises footsteps.  
  • Patterned Carpet is woven and tufted with strands of varying lengths to form geometric patterns.
  • Textured Carpet is woven from spiraled yarns that form a swirled surface. These carpets are very easy to maintain.
  • Frieze Carpet is also known as shag. It has long, fluffy fibers that hide dust and its care needs are minimal.
  • Plush Carpet feels like velvet fabric and is extra smooth at the surface, It doesn’t hide footprints so well, so it’s best for formal rooms where there’s little foot traffic.


In addition to weave style, there are both synthetic and natural pile, or fiber, options, including:


  • Nylon
  • Polyester
  • Triexta
  • Olefin
  • Wool 


Nylon, polyester, triexta, and olefin are popular types of synthetic carpet. Many customers prefer synthetic fibers for their soft touch and long life span.


Wool, a natural carpet fiber, is another hot item. Sustainable and eco-friendly, wool carpet is prized by allergy-sufferers due to its tendency to trap bits of dust, pet dander, and debris from the air. 


Should I Use Carpet Padding?


YES: proper carpet padding is needed for ongoing comfort and performance.


There are many reasons why carpet padding is an essential step to take during your next carpet installation.  It not only adds a layer of cushion: it will keep your heat and air conditioning where it belongs- potentially lowering your utility costs each month. 


Most importantly, your carpet padding will help your carpet last since it creates a buffer between the rug and your hard subfloor and reduces daily wear and tear.



Where Can I Install Carpet?

Carpet is designed to go nearly everywhere, except for kitchens and bathrooms.


Choose your carpet product carefully, keeping in mind its intended location and its regular activities. For instance, a carpet for a busy office waiting room should be commercial-grade and sturdy enough for the craziest days on the job. On the other hand, elegance and comfort are key if you’re carpeting the master bedroom.


Among our favorite spots for carpet installation are:


  • Bedrooms
  • Living Rooms
  • Dens
  • Home Offices
  • Hallways
  • Stairs
  • Family Rooms
  • Finished Basements
  • Lobbies
  • Meeting Rooms
  • Dining Rooms
  • Corporate
  • Hospitality
  • Apartment Buildings 


Should I Have My Carpet Professionally Installed?


Wherever you install, it’s usually best to choose a professional carpet installation.


The average person doesn’t have the necessary skills and tools (or frankly, the time) to install carpet the right way. Carpet installation can be a complicated job and precise measurements and attention to detail are needed to enjoy the best outcome.


Most manufacturer’s carpet warranties require a professional carpet installation to ensure coverage in the event of any future accidents. Protect your floor and its future by scheduling your next residential or commercial carpet installation with us!
