What are the benefits of carpet?
Nothing looks like it, feels like it or performs like it. Carpet is a key decorative and functional element in a home or business. It just feels better than all of your other options. There are also so many other reasons to buy carpet! A very economic reason is insulation.
It has thousands of fibers and places between them to hold warmth, and to insulate against extreme heat or cold. Carpet also gives added safety from slips or falls for small children, seniors, and the whole family in general. Carpet is great for cushioning our footsteps, minimizing slips and minimizing injuries from falls. Carpet’s softness and cushioning nature is ideal for family activity, whether it is the first steps of a toddler, the slow steps of the grandparent, or the fast action of a mother or teen-ager.
Lastly another wonderful benefit of carpet is it’s simple maintenance.
Although most carpet today has been treated for stain resistance and soil retardance, but stain resistant does not necessarily mean “stain proof.” So you should Vacuum every few days in high traffic areas, and once a week in less-used areas. Use a well-functioning vacuum cleaner, with an enclosed, efficient, dust-catching bag. Address spills quickly and remove them as soon as possible to afford the easiest spot removal.
Act preventively and avoid contact with difficult spots that are hard to remove -makeup, pesticides, disinfectants, iodine, mustard, and plant food products. Have carpet cleaned on a regular schedule, before it begins to show soil, a schedule of every 12 to 18 months by a professional cleaning company is reasonable for more used areas of the home.
So to re-cap, the benefits of carpet are:
- Carpet “Feels” Better!
- Provides Insulation
- Cushions Footsteps
- Simple Maintenance
- Decorative and Functional
