1. Walking on Carpet is Quieter
Whether you are at home or in the office, the constant clacking of high heels on tile or wood flooring can get on anyone’s nerves after a while. Male dress shoes, sandals, and even sneakers make noise that is sure to draw attention to them. Carpet however, is much quieter because it absorbs the sound and its padding reduces the force the shoes make upon contact with the ground. For peace of mind, choose carpeting.
2. The Range of Possibilities
While the 1970s was known for shag carpeting, things have changed over time. Now, carpets can be bought in many different styles, textures, colors, and designs. You can even buy carpet tiles and create your own designs. With choices as unique as each customer, you can rest assured that your commercial or residential carpet flooring meets your specifications.
3. A Safer Form of Flooring
It can be easy to slip and fall on wood or tile flooring, especially when it has just rained outside. Carpet, fortunately, absorbs moisture instead of repelling it, which means you will prevent any falls that could have occurred had the flooring been different. This is why many parents choose residential carpeting to protect their pets and children from getting hurt unnecessarily. Business owners would also benefit from installing commercial carpeting, due to the insurance issues that might arise if someone hurts themselves in your store.
4. Easier to Maintain
Different types of flooring have different maintenance regimens and carpet is no exception. Wood flooring requires the cleaner to sweep or scoop up the mess before mopping it. Tile requires the same, as well as buffing the floor with wax. Carpeting, however, is simple to deal with: just vacuum it. As long as no one has stuck things like gum to it or spilt a sugary drink on the carpet, any dirt and dust can be picked up with a vacuum, leaving you to free up your time for more important issues, whether at home or in the office.
5. An Environmentally-Friendly Solution
Carpeting, unlike other types of non-porous flooring, can absorb things like pollen, cigarette smoke, and dust more easily. This means that air quality in carpeted rooms and areas is, in fact, cleaner and safer than non-carpeted areas. For those who suffer from respiratory or allergy symptoms, buying carpeting may decrease these health issues.
6. The Traditional Thing to Do
Many home and business owners love installing carpets because they are traditional and evoke a nostalgic sentiment with an old-world feel. It is just like owning a vibrant piece of history. You can buy carpets that look like Arab rugs, Viking tapestries, or with Native American designs, for example.
7. Carpeting Looks More Professional
Whether you install carpeting or carpet tiles, it just looks more professional. One solid color, spread from one wall to the other seamlessly, will look much cleaner and positive that a flooring style that mixes colors and distracts people in the room. Just because it is simple does not mean it is unprofessional.
8. Carpeting Is Stronger than Other Types of Flooring
Because of the added traction and strength carpeting provides, it is simply stronger than wood flooring for example. When you install a carpet in your home or office, expect years of use out of it without much wear and tear. The top layers and stain on wood flooring, on the other hand, will fade with high amounts of foot traffic.
9. Easy to Install
Carpeting is a great choice for any busy home or business owner to install in their residence and office due to its ease of installation. Unlike wood flooring where you have to painstakingly glue, lock, or nail each plank into place, laying carpet is much easier and less time-intensive.
10. A Great Form of Insulation
Heating bills can really add up when winter comes around. Luckily, carpeting is a great form of insulation for your residential and commercial needs. By trapping heat in the flooring, carpeting keeps your rooms warm and comfortable, unlike wood or stone flooring, which can become quite cold to the touch. In addition, the thicker the carpet, the greater the insulation.
