There are many benefits to be found in carpet flooring
. Some are as
old as the material itself, like amazing underfoot comfort and softness. Others
are much newer and can change everything you thought you knew about this floor
covering. The softness makes your home a much safer place for both old and
young residents alike, providing a stable surface that helps to prevent
slipping and falling. It also offers a safer place to land in the event that a
fall does happen, so serious injury is much less likely.
Newer benefits include characteristics that will make
carpet much more appealing for even those who have avoided the material in the
past. Some manufacturers, for instance, have built stain protection into the
very fibers themselves for a floor that stays cleaner longer. Stains will have
no opportunity to soak in and create permanent marring of your floor, and
you’ll find they are much easier to clean as well.
In much the same way, manufacturers have also created
their carpet fibers to be hypoallergenic. This means that allergens such as
dander, pollen, and dust are held in place instead of recirculated through the
air so everyone in the home breathes better.
