5 Benefits of Carpet

If you are weighing your options to decide the best flooring to have installed, knowing the perks of every type and material is crucial to making that decision. Here are six reasons why having new carpeting installed is an excellent option for your home!

Comfort

Have you ever noticed how your body feels sore and achy after standing or walking on ceramic tiles or concrete for an extended period? Because they have no elasticity underfoot, they can't act as shock absorbers for your steps.

Carpet provides shock absorption thanks to its flexibility and cushioning, making it great to walk, sit, or lay on. If there is a carpet pad beneath, the effect is amplified substantially. As a result, carpet is not only more comfortable to touch, but it is also gentler on the body when standing or walking for lengthy periods of time.

Insulation

Unlike most hard surface flooring, carpet gives significant insulating value to an area. According to the results of a study conducted by the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Textile Engineering, a thicker carpet delivers a higher insulation factor ("R-value") regardless of the carpet's fiber type.

Furthermore, the underpad has its own R-value, and using an underpad with carpet combines the R-values of both materials, resulting in better overall insulation.

Due to its ability to maintain the home's temperature, carpet can help you save money on utilities such as electricity or natural gas

Health

Whether carpet aggravates or alleviates health conditions such as asthma and allergies has long been debated. People with respiratory problems have been told for years that they should rip up all of their carpets and replace them with hard surface flooring. However, multiple studies in recent years have repeatedly demonstrated that carpet is more beneficial for people with breathing problems than hard surface flooring.

Quiet

Having carpet in a room helps to dampen the sound, unlike rooms with only solid surfaces. You will not get the distinct echoing you hear when you walk into a room with hardwood flooring.

Cost

All flooring comes in a variety of quality and pricing ranges. As a result, no one type of floor covering is sure to be more expensive or less expensive than another. Carpet, on the other hand, is frequently less costly than hard surface floors.
