On a frosty morning, there is nothing quite like sinking your toes into a thick pile of carpet as you get out of your bed. The current trend in bedroom flooring is a super comfy Saxony, creating a cozy warm surface enjoyed by small children and pets and cold toes alike.
It has an insulating effect that allows a lower thermostat setting and reduces cooler months' heating bills. Those with bursitis, arthritis and similar problems find walking on carpeting with a resilient underlay causes less pain on the joints.
It also acts as a buffer to sound in busy, lively households. The bylaws of many condos require those who live there to have wall-to-wall carpeting for that reason.
Carpeting is less expensive than nearly all flooring material except vinyl sheeting. Installation is a little more expensive than hardwood, but the overall cost is about half that of wood. While it may not last as long as hard surface flooring, proper care and maintenance extend its lifespan.
Properly cared for, it can last for more than ten years. Standard maintenance includes removing shoes when entering from outdoors, and having it professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months. High traffic areas in homes with pets or children may require more frequent cleaning.
Triexta, polyester, polypropylene, and nylon are the fibers used in most carpet today. There is an increase in the use of PET polyester. That fiber contains some waste from recycled containers. It is more stain resistant and stronger than older polyester types.
Budget Flooring is conscious of the environment. As a green practice, tacks are used for installation rather than a noxious glue that can emit gas into the air. It is recommended to use recycled or natural materials for backing instead of cancer-causing styrene. Traditional wool or lesser known fibers such as coconut tree coir or agave plant sisal are suggested natural sources.
