Carpet FAQ

Carpet flooring is a beautiful addition to many rooms in your home, with a soft underfoot feel and many added benefits, depending on the brand you choose. It has an excellent lifespan when properly cared for and gives you unlimited décor-matching possibilities. Here are some answers to some of our most commonly asked questions about this material.

Carpet and carpet care you can depend on

What type of soft surface is best?

There are many different answers to this question based on your specific flooring requirements. Each floor’s fiber has its characteristics, and some of them might be more tuned to your particular needs than others. For instance, nylon is perfect for high-traffic areas that require durability, while wool is an excellent choice for low-traffic areas where visuals are most important.

Can I skip the underpadding if my carpeting is thick enough?

No matter what type you choose, underpadding is one of the essential additions to your installation process. It protects your floors' integrity by preventing bunching, balding, and seam separation and aids in heat retention and noise reduction.

How often should it be cleaned?

Carpet care is essential and begins with daily cleaning. According to the manufacturer's recommendations, vacuum at least once a day in average traffic areas and spot clean as needed. Use a professional cleaning service once every twelve to eighteen months or as necessary based on traffic levels.
Is this a good flooring choice for pet owners?

Broadloom is an excellent addition to your home, even if you are a pet owner. Some brands cater to your specific needs by building stain and odor protection right into the fibers at the manufacturing point. This ensures a cleaner, fresher smelling surface for the life of your floor covering.

What if a portion of my carpet becomes damaged?

Depending on the type of damage, you might be able to have the flooring repaired so that it looks as good as new. Be sure to contact us for a consultation, where we will give you options and estimates for the best approach to move forward.
