- Warmth: Carpet is the best choice for areas where warmth is crucial such as basements, and children’s bedrooms.
- Sound Absorption: Carpet has the highest sound absorption properties among floor coverings. This quality is especially valuable in high rises and apartment buildings where it’s important to dissipate the transmission of sound between units.
- Insulation: Carpet provides great insulation between floors of your home, especially when installed over pad.
- Indoor Air Quality: If your carpet is maintained properly (according to the manufacturer’s specifications), it can reduce airborne dirt, and trap allergens and dust mites, resulting in a cleaner indoor air.
- Low Cost: Because of its relatively low cost of installation (compared to the cost of installing other flooring products), carpet is generally considered to be one of the most economical flooring options available.
- Durability: A well-maintained carpet can often outlive all other floor covering choices.
- Safety: Due to the soft texture, and the non-slip qualities of carpet, it is an ideal floor for the elderly and young children.
- Sustainability: Most carpets can now be recycled and made into a wide variety of consumer products. Also, many carpets utilize recycled materials in the manufacturing process.
Indoor Air Quality
A properly maintained carpet is one of the best solutions for maintaining air quality. It reduces airborne dust and allergens, while allowing them to be vacuumed and removed.
According to the Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI), new carpet is one of the lowest emitters of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), in the indoor environment dissipate and normally dissipate within 48 to 72 hours.
The stringent quality and environmental standards we that enjoy today have evolved out of extensive research and collaboration between the carpet industry and government regulatory bodies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the U.S. Federal Housing Administration (FHA).
For those people who have chemical sensitivities, we offer natural products like wool and sisal that are un-dyed. Studies show that properly maintained wool carpets actually have a beneficial effect on indoor air quality and people's health. Wool carpets absorb, neutralize, and do not re-emit common pollutants such as nitrous oxides, sulfur dioxide, and formaldehyde. Additionally, wool attracts and holds airborne contaminates such as dust, dust mites, and pollen until they can be harmlessly vacuumed away. A major European respiratory study (2002) of nearly 20,000 people at 30 centers in 17 countries concluded that carpets in bedrooms (in lieu of hard surface floors) resulted in dramatic reductions in allergic and asthmatic symptoms.
Loop Pile CarpetsMade from loops, are easy to clean and highly recommended for traffic areas and stairs, especially suited for contemporary lifestyles.
Level LoopA “level loop” carpet is, a carpet which has a pile comprised entirely of looped tufts of fiber, each of equal height. This style of carpet is usually made of nylon or wool. It is extremely durable in high traffic areas, and does not show vacuum tracks.
Multi-Level LoopThis carpet style is created from combining different loop heights in a single carpet, thereby altering the way the light refracts off of the carpet pile, resulting in a stunning collection of patterns and textures. Multi-level loop carpets are available in most natural and synthetic carpet fibers.
BerberAlthough this term is often used to refer to any carpet with a loop pile, the modern term “berber” generally refers to a, loop-pile carpet. It doesn't show footmarks or vacuum tracks, and is a popular choice for basement and recreation rooms.
Cut LoopThis carpet style is created by combining cut-pile and loop-pile carpet in order to create sculptured design effects, a softer feel, and deeper, lusher colors. The cut-and loop style is usually only found in nylon or wool carpets.
SisalAlthough actual “sisal” is a plant native to Mexico (agave sisalana) which can be woven into a tight eco-friendly matting material, the term “sisal” is more commonly used to refer to a low-pile carpet with a linear pattern. As it is a popular style, it can be found in several natural and synthetic carpet fibers.
Cut-pile CarpetsCut-pile carpets come in many looks and textures, and are available in wool, nylon, and polyester.
Plush / VelvetThe term “plush” is widely used in popular culture to depict smooth, sophisticated luxury, and the term certainly applies here. A plush carpet is a soft, smooth, dense cut-pile carpet. The term “velvet” refers to the ultra-soft carpet which tracks like velvet when vacuumed.
Saxony / TexturedThese dense cut-pile styles are designed with a very high heat-set twist so as to reduce the crushing and traffic marks evident in plush and velvet styles. It has been the traditional benchmark style for casual residential applications in mid to high traffic areas.
FriezeThis style of carpet is sometimes referred to as a “mini-shag,” (but no 1960’s-style rake is required). Today’s frieze’s are designed with the most advanced fibers and heat-twisting technology, and perform extremely well in medium to high traffic zones. With the recently popularity of hard surfaces, a frieze offers an extremely comfortable, casual, and luxurious living area.
Carpet TileQuickly becoming a popular high-value flooring option for commercial high-traffic areas where there is a high probability that a portion of the carpet will have to be replaced due to spills, staining, damage, and heavy traffic. Carpet tiles come in 18" and 24" squares, have backings made from recycled rubber, and do not require pad. It is installed using pressure-sensitive adhesive for easy replacement, or even double sided tape.
Indoor/Outdoor CarpetThis sun-and-weather resistant polypropylene carpet is available in many colors, textures, and designs. It provides a colorful low-cost, low-maintenance, anti-slip surface that is ideal for porches, pool decks, boats, and even many indoor applications. It is also available in constructions suitable for a range of light-duty to heavy-duty applications.
