Carpet pros and cons are not a mystery for a company that has been in the flooring business for over 11 years, like The Carpet Guys. There are several applications that may not warrant carpet and some that carpet is best for. Let The Carpet Guys help you decide.
The Pros of Carpet
There are plenty of pros to having carpet, and very few cons. That’s one reason we decided to go with the name The Carpet Guys. Being a provider of all things carpet
It’s inexpensive – One of the best options for price in flooring is carpet. Price per square foot, carpet is lower than all other flooring options. If you’re looking for a square foot calculator, click here. This will help give you an idea of how much it will cost to carpet your room.
It’s softer and quieter – Hard surface flooring is just that…hard. Carpet, even a tightly woven Berber, is still going to be softer underfoot than hardwood or laminate. If you include a pad upgrade like The Carpet Guy’s pink memory foam, it’s even softer. The quiet can be best portrayed by all libraries…carpet.
It’s faster to install – When installing any roll product like carpet or sheet vinyl, the roll is precut by the company per the measurements of the customer’s home. It is then laid out by the installers and trimmed to fit the room. The hardest part of the installation is deciding where to put the seams in a room if it is larger than 11.5 feet. The best installers can do this quickly and “seamlessly”.
It hides dirt – One of the best things about carpet is that it hides dirt for those unexpected visitors. If choosing a flecked carpet, the only way you will know it’s dirty is when you empty the vacuum.
The Cons of Carpet
It shows wear and tear – Frequently, we are asked to replace the carpet in high traffic areas of people’s homes because the carpet shows wear and tear. Each footfall can compress the fibers and if the flooring is not properly cared for, it won’t last forever. See the next point for proper carpet maintenance.
It needs maintenance – In order to maintain your carpet’s valuable warranty, you will need to vacuum once a week with an approved machine by the Carpet and Rug Institute. They are the leaders in all things carpet. Check out their maintenance and cleaning page here. It’s also important to have the carpet professionally cleaned every 12-18 months and maintain your receipt. By maintaining your flooring with the proper care, its beauty will last longer.
It needs to be replaced periodically – This, unfortunately, applies to all flooring types and styles. Nothing lasts forever. Whether your carpet is worn, or you just want an upgrade, The Carpet Guys can fix it.
