What you need to know about carpet

If you have picked carpet for your next floor covering, you’ve probably already made some important decisions. For instance, it’s likely you’ve already considered that carpet is much better if you have children in the home. You might also know it’s a safer floor covering for homes where elderly persons live.

No matter what your specific reason, this is the flooring to go with when hard surface materials just won’t do. However, there are a few more factors you might want to consider before finalizing your decision and making the purchase.

Main Place Floor knows that carpet buying is a major decision for homeowners. That’s why we are prepared to stand by you every step of the way, along your flooring journey. We invite you to visit our showroom, located in Cottonwood, AZ, to speak to a flooring professional who can answer all your questions, and show you our complete line of flooring.

Carpet specifics to help with your buying experience

The first thing you’ll want to know is that you’re buying a carpet that has the right kind of fiber for your home. For instance, you wouldn’t want to buy a high pile, extremely plush fiber to be placed in an area with extremely high traffic. It would crush quickly and its lifespan could be cut very short.

On the other hand, that same fiber might work wonderfully in a bedroom, where traffic is minimal. The important thing in matching fiber type with specific use is that you’ll get the longest possible lifespan, while maintaining that beautiful look for as long as possible.

Still focusing on the fiber of your flooring, you will also want to consider what type of stain protection you need or want. For instance, if you have pets that are indoors more often than out, you can purchase flooring with stain and odor protection built right in. If you’re not as concerned, but still want to play it safe, you can have stain protection added after the installation.

We strongly advise against turning your new carpeting into a DIY project. This job not only calls for specific, specialized tools, but quite a bit of experience as well. If you don’t know the specifics of seams, stretching, and corner installation, then you could easily cut down the life of your carpet by years.
