If you're like most people getting ready for their first flooring project, you probably have a lot of questions about the various benefits of the different materials available. To the uninitiated, the world of flooring can be a confusing and complicated place. So, Cyndi's Carpet thought we'd throw together this quick guide to the benefits of everyone's favorite flooring material, carpeting.
We're going to skip over the obvious reasons why people love it so much, and touch upon the less commonly understood benefits of a new carpeting installation, so you can get a better idea of exactly why this flooring material is considered the cream of the crop.
Carpet Keeps the Noise Down
Lots of flooring materials actually cause an increase in the noise level of a home. Hard surface floors cause echoes, make loud noises with each footfall, and tend to sound like a tap dancing competition, when pet claws skitter across their surface.
Carpeting, on the other hand, is soft and absorbs the impact of footfalls and stops other sounds dead in their tracks. If you have heavy steppers, excited dogs, or noisy children in the house, carpet can add a little bit of tranquility you might not realize you've been missing.
It Also Keeps Energy Costs Down
Heating and cooling costs eat up huge portions of the average American's household income. Many people are starting to realize just how costly this can be, and are taking steps to cut the costs of energy. That's where the plush stuff really shines.
Much the way it insulates against sound, it also insulates against temperature. It's kind of like a blanket for your floor. It keeps the house cool in the summer, and warm in the winter, saving you oodles on heating and cooling costs.
It's Healthier Than Other Options
One of the great things about carpeting is that it traps airborne pollutants in its fibers where they safely remain until vacuumed up. This makes carpeting a great choice for homes with people who suffer from respiratory ailments, such as asthma or allergies.
