Five Reasons Why Homeowners Love Carpet

It’s a long-running debate, but let’s be clear: Carpet installations are not, nor have they ever been, outdated, out-of-style and unpopular.

This flooring is the perfect balance of form + function. It can be a beautiful addition to your home, and it comes in so many colors, style, textures and patterns, there’s something for every atmosphere, from the most traditional, to urban chic.

You can find anything that you need at a carpet store like Houston’s Carpet Giant, and our carpet sales staff tell us that sales just continue to soar.

It’s not just a pretty face, however, so it will also:

● Keep Your Feet Warm and Comfortable

Isn’t it nice to step on to something warm, soft and plush in the morning? Really, you haven’t even had your morning coffee yet, so would you to step on something hard and cold??

If that’s especially important to you, know that there are various fiber types that can be plusher than others, such as a cut pile, which is sometimes referred to as “plush” ,or even a shag which is undergoing an amazing resurgence in popularity due to a lot of added colors and shades. If you really want to treat yourself, go for wool, because it’s one of the softest fibers around.

● Will Act As a Noise Barrier

Everything can seem a little magnified with a wood or stone floor, plus all those electronic devices. It’s an insulation and it will absorb noises from upstairs.

● Will Prevent Hard Falls

No one can deny that a tiled floor is magnificent, but we know someone who had one (with that gorgeous black and white diamond design) and his young son always seemed to be in an arm cast. That’s because a lot of flooring types can cause hard falls or slippery surfaces. No worries here!

● Be in Good Health

Another debate is that you shouldn’t have it if you have allergies or asthma. Not true! What happens if that dirt and pollutants get trapped into the fiber and don’t come out until those fibers are cleaned?
That’s why you need a professional cleaning once every 12 or 18 months. Some manufacturers will add that to their warranty.

● Will Get Dirty

Well, if you have a light color, you will have to clean it more often, but that’s true for anything, right? Wipe up spills immediately, so stains don’t set; vacuum often; get professional cleaning, and you’ll have an investment that stays beautiful for years to come.

Come into the Carpet Giant showroom in Houston and let our experts show you how gorgeous it can be. Remember, if you don’t see it ask, because we just may have something tucked away in our carpet warehouse.
