I GET ASKED SOMETIMES WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CARPETING?
There are 5 reasons why carpeting is good:
1. Provides warmth and comfort.
Carpet provides excellent R-value. In climates where the temperatures get seasonal, carpeting can retain the warm air longer. Helping with energy conservation or in other words “helping to retain the heat in the house”. Carpet is a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives the room a warmer feeling.
2. Improves indoor air quality.
All carpets these days the lowest VOC emitting levels then any other product out there. Carpeting acts as a passive air filter creating a trap for dust, pollen and other particles to be removed from the breathing zone. They say studies have shown that people with allergies and asthma have seen their symptoms improve when new carpet has been installed.
3. Reduces Noise.
With all the new gadgets that technology has brought about including Big screen TV’s, media rooms, sound systems our houses have become noisy places. Carpeting has helped to reduce these sounds by absorbing the noise. Cushion also helps to reduce these noises even further. Carpeting also helps reduce noise from floor to floor blocking sound transmission to rooms below. Carpet also masks foot traffic noise.
4. Softens slips and falls.
Carpet provides safety protection for elderly adults and children when falling. Carpeting also reduces slips and falls minimizing injuries.
5. Adds beauty and style.
Carpeting allows you to choose from many styles and colors. This gives you choices to reflect your personality. It can be neutral or a statement with vibrant colors, patterns and textures.
We usually don’t associate carpet with indoor air quality, but it does have a positive effect. We know gravity causes common particles such as dust, pollen, insect, pet dander to fall to the floor. Carpet fibers can trap these particles removing them from the breathing area and reducing their circulation in the air. Proper cleaning with approved vacuums can effectively remove these particles and allergens from the carpet helping to keep them out of the air for breathing.
One of the misperception that is floating around out there is that people with allergies and asthma should avoid carpeting in their home. The Carpet and Rug Institute is actually saying the opposite. They have performed studies that show that properly cleaned carpets help to reduce symptoms and is the best flooring choice for those dealing with allergies and asthma.
Another misperception is mold and VOC. When carpeting is kept clean and dry, mold cannot grow on synthetic fibers. Carpeting is one of the lowest emitters of volatile organic compounds then another flooring product made. The CRI Institute identifies carpeting, cushion and adhesives as meeting or exceeding government indoor quality regulations and the lowest emitting product on the market.
