Your floor covering not only sees everyday use, but it’s also the focal point of many rooms. That’s why it’s important to choose the right one. Taking just a few key considerations can mean the difference between a carpet that looks great and lasts a long time, or one that diminishes quickly.
One of the first things you will be asked about is the level of traffic in your home. Your answer to this question will help determine which kind of fiber your carpet needs to consist of, for starters. Nylon and polyester both stand up well to high traffic and have a high level of durability. If your traffic levels are lower, you’ll be freer to choose a fiber that’s a bit more plush.
You’ll also need to consider things like how much stain protection you’ll need. Some come with stain protection manufactured right into the fiber itself, or you can choose to add that protection after installation. Some fibers are even created to withstand pet stains and odors, right from the factory.
For the perfect experience with this floor covering, make sure you speak to a flooring professional about installation. Some homeowners try to manage their budget by skipping out on the padding, but we recommend that you don’t try this. Padding not only helps to create that soft, plush feel when you walk on this flooring, but it can also help increase its lifespan as well. Additionally, a professional installation will make sure that those little amateur mistakes don’t happen. That can save you both time as well as money.
