At Preferred Flooring, we carry the most premium carpet brands, and we would love to help you enhance any and every room in your home.
Who is carpet flooring for? Everyone. Aside from adding to the decorative elements of a room, carpeting also has a range of other benefits. Any carpet will retain warmth, reducing your home's energy consumption during the year's colder months. The fibers used in carpeting also help to eliminate noise. This noise reduction can be beneficial for the upper floors of a home, so walking around doesn't disturb family members downstairs. Carpet is also safer for small children or elderly family members. It is significantly less slippery than hard floor surfaces and provides a softer landing in the event of a fall. Your floors are also easier to clean and maintain when covered with carpet. This saves you time and money over the life of your carpet flooring, and that's a perk!
Pile, density, crushing. These are all standard carpet terms, but what do they all mean? The pile of a carpet is the visible portion of carpet flooring and the part you walk on. The pile can be cut or looped, with a cut pile having straight tufts of fiber and a loop pile with intact looping. Density refers to how close each fiber is at the base of your carpet and the overall number of fiber strands. The higher density of a carpet, the less it will show marks and traffic activity. Crushing happens when your carpet flooring is exposed to excessive or constant pressure from foot traffic or furniture. It's an inevitable part of having carpet in your home, but you can help reduce it by not moving heavy items through the room frequently.
The majority of carpet flooring today uses one of three types of fiber. Knowing the difference between the fibers will help you select the best carpet for your home, lifestyle, and budget.
