Carpeting is a common choice of flooring for many homeowners. Carpet provides a long list of benefits and can be the ideal flooring depending on your needs and lifestyle. Here are a few of the advantages of carpeting.

Benefits of Carpet

Insulation

Carpeting helps keep your home at a more even temperature, holding warmth during winter and helping to insulate against the heat in the summer months. The fibers that make up the carpet also help to avoid drafts and keep the temperature near the floor consistent with the rest of the room.

Sound Reduction

Carpet works wonders for noise cancellation, cushioning footfalls and helping to take the edge off of big-screen TVs and game systems. The sound is absorbed rather than being bounced through the house off of floors, walls, and furniture. It can even help form a sound break between rooms and keep the downstairs quieter, even with noisy upstairs housemates.

Safety

Carpet is an especially good option for homeowners with small children as it can provide a bit of cushioning for those just learning to walk. It can also help to minimize slips and falls for other members of the family as it provides a stable, non-slip surface, even when wet.

Simple Maintenance

Carpet requires simple but consistent care to remain intact and beautiful. While most carpet has been treated to make it resistant to stains, spills should still be addressed quickly. In addition to that, vacuuming should be done every few days in any high-traffic areas and schedule a professional cleaning every 12 to 18 months for best results.
