With so many flooring choices in the market these days, it can be difficult to decide which flooring is best for your home.

carpet-benefitsCarpet offers a number of attributes that can enhance and add to your home.

These include:

Indoor Air Quality
Carpet aids Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in two ways. The first is that carpet traps dust and other allergens, and keeps them out of the breathing zone and they are removed through regular vacuuming. The second is by purchasing Green Label Plus certified carpet. GLP certifies that the carpet you buy is a low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) product and improves IAQ in homes.

Comfort
Some of the most widely known benefits of carpet are comfort, warmth, and insulation. Carpet is softer and feels better underfoot. The correct carpet pad selection makes a lot of difference too. Research which type of carpet pad will go best with your carpet before purchasing.

Maintenance
When compared to maintenance cost of other flooring, carpet maintenance is much more cost effective. Regular vacuuming, a deep cleaning every 12-18 months and prompt spot removal will maintain the look and life of your carpet.

Safety
As mentioned earlier, carpet is great for cushioning footsteps, but carpet is also exceptional at reducing slips and falls and minimizing injuries if falls do occur. Carpet provides sure footing, especially for toddlers and older individuals.
