The Benefits of Carpeting

There are various types of flooring available for your home and it may be tough to pick the right one for you and your family. There are however many benefits to choosing carpeting for your flooring. It can add to the look of your home, it performs well, provides great comfort, can be cheaper than other options available, and it is safe as well as sustainable. Here are a few ways carpeting can be useful in your home.

Adds Beauty and Style

You can use carpeting as a neutral base to decorate your home. Then you can add bright colors, patterns, and various textures to brighten up and personalize your space. You can get it to look however you want to help it bring out your style and personality in your space.

Improves Air Quality

Compared to hardwood flooring, carpeting acts as a filter that traps dirt, dust, and pollen and removes them from your breathing zone. For many years it was advised that carpeting should be removed from homes and replaced with hardwood as it would improve respiratory issues. However, in later studies, carpet has been shown to improve allergy and asthma symptoms.

It Can Be Warm and Cozy

Carpeting helps with thermal insulation and resistance. It keeps homes warmer in cold months and keeps your home cozy in wintertime. It also helps with saving energy, plus it is comfortable to sit on.

Safer in Case of Falls

Not only does it provide a cushion in case of a fall, but also lowers the likelihood of falls and injuries. This is especially true with stairs. When you have young children and senior present in your home, it is best to choose carpeting on your stairs. You should get 50 to 60 ounce range carpet so that it is durable but not too thick for use.

It is a Noise Reducer

Carpeting helps reduce noise in your home. This noise may come from speakers, phones, and sound systems. Due to the cushioning and padding, it becomes a sound barrier and absorber of it. If you have more than one floor in your home, it helps act as a sound barrier.

Lower Cost Choice

Compared to other types of flooring on the market, carpeting costs much less than hardwood and vinyl flooring. Also, when it comes to installation, the flooring area does not have to be prepared as much. Carpeting overall is not as expensive as, for example, hardwood flooring.

Helps with Insulation

Carpeting will help save energy in your home as it insulates well, therefore making it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Easier to Clean and Maintain

Carpeting is not as difficult to clean as hardwood flooring and it does not have to be cleaned as often. The maintenance of hardwood flooring is also more labor intensive than for carpeting.

Carpet is Better for the Environment

Carpeting is a better choice for the environment. Here are some ways the carpet industry has made improvements over the years to make its production have less of an impact on the environment.

  • Carpeting will help save energy in your home

    It is more sustainable:

Over the years, the carpet industry has minimized its negative effect on the environment. Carpeting can now be recycled and re-used for other products such as roof shingles, automotive parts, and railroad ties. Most carpets today are not bad for the environment as they are manufactured to be stain and fade resistant and can survive heavy food traffic.

  • NSF/ANSI 140 is followed by the carpet industry:

NSF/ANSI 140 is how the sustainability of a carpet is measured. This is used by designers and even purchasers to evaluate and certify how sustainable a carpet is. Over time, the carpet industry has made major progress in making carpeting more sustainable. This includes reducing environmental footprint, hazardous air pollutants, carbon dioxide emissions, energy consumption, waste generation, and water usage when carpeting is produced.

  • Extra CARE:

The Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) helps keep carpeting out of landfills, encourages recycling of post-consumer carpet, and designing carpeting that can be recycled. It has over 400 industry members and it has helped to keep more than 4 billion pounds of carpet from landfills since 2002 when it was established.
