Carpets remain one of the most popular floor coverings for homes, businesses and other establishments around the world. Some of the main reasons that carpets never seem to go out of fashion include:
- Warmth, Comfort, And Luxury
Carpets provide the ultimate warmth and comfort in any living space or area. They are also definitive of luxury in the home. The thicker the pile and the more luxurious the finish, the more carpet flooring can provide these benefits.
Carpets offer the greatest variety of choice of any type of floor covering. From wall to wall coverings to throw rugs and loose space carpets, they offer unrivaled versatility. Different colors, designs as well as styles, provide a multitude of options for a truly unique design feature. In fact, many interior designers use a carpet as the central feature on which to base the rest of the design and decoration for a room.
Carpets are produced from a wide range of different materials to meet different requirements. Hardier, more durable textiles are more suited to high traffic areas while some material is better suited to bathrooms where water can be problematic. Softer materials are more suitable for bedrooms or areas of low traffic where comfort and luxury play a more important role.
Carpets are simply softer than other floor coverings making them ideal for children to break those little stumbles and falls. The softer touch also means that there is lower impact meaning that footfalls are less loud and that the overall sound in a room is dampened. Placing just one small rug in a room can go a long way towards reducing echoes and loud noises.
It is therefore important to vacuum carpets on a daily basis and clean them regularly. Professional carpet cleaning is recommended every six months to a year. There are different types of carpet cleaning methods and techniques that are suitable for certain materials and carpet types. It is recommended to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and care of a specific carpet.
