Frequently Asked Questions
What types of carpet are available?
With regard to fiber types, you have a variety of natural and synthetic fibers from which to choose, including nylon, polyester, wool, and more.
If you’re referring to the construction and texture of the carpet, there are a variety of pile heights and types (such as cut, loop and cut-loop) as well as carpets of varying densities and twist, the latter of which refers to how tightly each fiber has been twisted.
Do I really need the carpet padding?
100% yes, you do! A carpet pad is necessary to protect your carpet. The pad keeps the underside of your carpet from wearing against the sub-floor, which is often wood or cement. It also absorbs the impact from footsteps and furniture, lessening the stress on the carpet and improving the lifespan. In addition offering protection, the right carpet padding provides thermal insulation and reduces sound within the room, helping make living spaces more comfortable.
How do I choose the right carpet for my room?
First thing is to think about how the room is used. If you are carpeting a high-traffic area, consider a dense loop pile carpet made of durable nylon. For carpeting a room with direct passage outside, if there is a pet access, or where food and drinks are often served, you’ll want to opt for a low-pile carpet with soil and stain resistant treatments, as well as hiding the tracks from frequent vacuuming. For low-activity spaces like bedrooms and formal living rooms, a soft, plush carpet will give you superior luxury and comfort.
