Choosing the carpet that works best for you

There’s an old saying that what works for one person doesn’t always work for another, and that’s just the way it is with carpet. Some homeowners prefer hard surface flooring while others are completely loyal to the only soft surface flooring on the market. And there are many reasons to feel that way.

As it’s always been, carpet provides a softness like no other. That luxurious underfoot feel is sought after for its warmth, its safety and stability for those with walking issues, its noise reduction, and its amazing comfort. These have been attributes of this material since its inception, actually. But along with advancements in technology, this material has also seen major advancements as well.

It used to be that if you wanted to the softest carpet available, you had to give up any idea of durability or stain protection. On the other hand, if you made a preference for durability, you would renege on the softness. Now, manufacturers have found ways to make sure you have both in the same material and homeowners couldn’t be happier. 

Built-in stain protection allows you to live on your carpet without worry that you’ll wind up with permanent stains or dingy looking flooring. It also makes cleaning a lot easier too. Of course, spots should be treated immediately after they happen, or as soon thereafter as is possible, but you’ll find they never set in. If you’re a pet owner, you’ll experience a lot more peace of mind too. Some manufacturers now offer protection specific to stains and accidents associated with pets for a cleaner looking, fresher smelling home, all the time.
