Carpet Flooring | Rock Hill, SC

What you may not know about carpet

Carpet is still a popular installation but, like anything that’s so visible, there’s a lot of misinformation out there. That may be holding you back from having a floor that’s truly the jewel in your home’s crown.

Technological advances just keep making it better and better

Rugs just keep getting better and better with advances that align it with today’s hectic world and large families and multiple pets.

One is the creation of the fiber, Triexta. It has stain protection built right into the fiber, so you could say it’s in the rug’s DNA.

This is so durable and stain-resistant that manufacturer Mohawk lined it in a Rhinoceros cage for two weeks. At the end of two weeks, it was simply hosed off and the carpet was good as new with no damage or stains. That wasn't enough, though, so they tested it at a kids' party with sticky cake, mustard, and ketchup. Still no damage, so if you're worried about pet accidents and sticky, messy fingers, don't be.

Here’s something else you may not know. Remember the gold, green and brown colors of the iconic Shag rug of the 70s and 80s? Technology has expanded the color line so you can get it in every color from purple to orange to black. The rugs can make a huge fashion statement.

Yes, you can have carpet even if you have allergies and asthma

This is an installation that traps undesirable particles deep within the fibers. They stay there until the carpet is professionally cleaned (Vacuuming only gets the surface dirt, doesn’t scrub deeply.) Since the particles never become airborne, it helps indoor air quality.

Some other things you might not realize

●It may help you conserve energy. Rather than transferring hot and cold, it absorbs it. If the room is warm, the floor will help retain the warmth. Alternatively, it will help keep a room chilly, if necessary.
●It insulates against noise. Because it provides a cushion, you won’t hear footsteps, the beeping of devices or the muffled voices of phone conversations.
●Not all soft surface is the same. They should coordinate, but there’s no need to use the same installation in every room. They all have different priorities and challenges so what may be good for a bedroom can be disastrous for the stairs.
