Carpet: What you need to know

Buying carpet flooring shouldn’t seem like such a daunting task, but it is for many homeowners. If this is your first time purchasing any floor covering, the job can seem monumental, but we’ve got good news. It doesn’t have to be.

Here are some quick tips on selecting carpet floors that are sure to meet your needs, no matter how large or small your project. Read along to find out what to expect.

Carpet facts you should know

Of all the decisions you’ll make about your floor covering, choosing a fiber is probably the most important. Each fiber has its unique traits and strengths, and one is likely to be a better fit for your requirements than all the others.

Choosing carpet loops or cuts for a pile that gives you the best look, durability, and lifespan is another critical choice. Again, each one is different, and some have varying differences within a single type, so be sure to ask questions and view as many different kinds as possible to get a good idea of what you’ll want.

Built-in features will be vital to you as well, especially if you want something specific. Some manufacturers build in a variety of benefits right into the fiber.

Stain protection is one of these built-in features, as is hypoallergenic fibers. Both have ongoing benefits that affect you now, as well as later, so be sure to ask about these if you prefer long-lasting clean carpets and the lowest possible allergen count.
