When Carpet is the Right Choice Carpeting your home, in nearly every aspect, is a great option. It’s appealing, warms the home, keeps slips to a minimum while padding falls, feels great underfoot and can reduce noise levels greatly, especially between floors.
However, you might have heard some things that have you thinking twice about this timeless floor covering. If that’s the case, allow Simas Floor & Design Company, to put your mind at ease.
One thing that often keeps people away from choosing carpet for their floors is the fact they think it’s easy to stain. Years ago, this was much truer than it is today. With new technology however, most carpets today come right from the factory with special stain resistance built right in to the fibers. Of course, some stains are worse than others are, but thank goodness, they’re also less likely to occur!
In addition to purchasing carpet that comes standard with top of the line stain resistance, you can also treat your carpet once you have it installed. This can be done professionally, or you can opt to do it yourself. While doing it yourself is certainly okay, you get more peace of mind by allowing a professional service to apply it.
Another thing that worries some homeowners, especially those who have children with allergies, is the allergen worry. Many people believe that carpet traps these allergens and makes your health much worse than if you went with a different type of flooring.
