Provides Warmth and Comfort
While most people notice the warmth of carpet beneath their feet, you may be surprised to learn that carpet actually has a greater benefit when it comes to saving you money each month. In colder climates or seasons, carpet retains warm air longer than any other type of flooring. That retained warm air keeps your heating unit from turning on as often, trying to regulate the temperature of the rooms. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling.
Customize the Beauty and Style in Your Home
If you have ever visited a carpet store you probably remember that you can choose from thousands of carpet styles and colors. That means your ultimate choice will reflect how you want to personalize your living space. Carpet can be a neutral foundation, or it can be a focal point with vibrant colors and stronger bolder patterns and textures.
Improves Indoor Air Quality
While the air filter in your heating and cooling unit traps many of the harmful indoor allergens, there are still many allergens that pass through the filter, into the indoor air of your home. Carpet acts as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen and other particles and removing them from the breathing zone. Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve with carpet.
Softens Slips and Falls
Carpet is ideal for cushioning our footsteps, reducing slips and falls and minimizing injuries when falls do occur. Carpet provides safety protection for the whole family, but especially for toddlers and older individuals.
Big screen TVs, speaker phones, computers and modern sound systems make our homes noisy places. Carpet helps absorb these sounds. Adding a cushion pad beneath your carpet reduces noise even further. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between floors by helping to block sound transmission to rooms below. And carpet on stairs helps mask the sound of constant foot traffic.
