Carpet Makes a Welcome Addition to Your Home
The beauty, performance, value, and sustainability of carpet make it the right choice for your home. Carpet improves homes by cushioning the impact of slips and falls, dampening noise, and making it easier to learn and concentrate. Today’s carpets are environmentally friendly, engineered to resist staining and fading, and withstand even heavy foot traffic.
Adds Beauty and Style
With thousands of carpet styles and colors, 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
New carpet is the lowest VOC-emitting flooring choice available. It actually acts as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen, and particles and then removing them from the breathing zone.
“Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve with carpet.”
Provides Warmth and Comfort
Carpet provides actual thermal insulation and resistance, or R-value. In colder climates or seasons, it retains warm air longer, an energy conservation benefit. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play, or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling.
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 sound systems make our homes noisy places. Carpet helps to 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. Carpet on stairs also helps mask the sound of constant foot traffic.
Carpet Is A Sustainable Choice
The carpet industry is minimizing carpet’s impact on the environment through the “3 Rs” – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. When carpet reaches the end of its long life, it is reused to make new carpet or is recycled into a variety of products, including roofing shingles, railroad ties, and automotive parts.
