Is carpet right for you?
Choosing carpet for your home
If you’re looking to purchase new flooring or replace your old carpet, you have so many options to choose from. When it comes to carpet, there’s no need to settle on anything less than fabulous in your home.
- Color: If you’re seeking a beige color to match your farmhouse home or emerald green for a bold boho look, your carpet color options are endless.
- Texture: While patterned textures are rising in popularity, textured two-tone carpets never go out of style. The texture you choose might vary by room and activity level or by how easy the textures are to keep clean.
- Material: Seeking a plush, warm wool for the winter months or are you looking for something more economical? Some of the most popular carpet fibers are made from wool, nylon, olefin, and polyester.
During Flagstaff’s winter months, carpet will help to insulate your home AND keep your feet warm as you crawl out of bed. Carpet is often found in bedrooms because of its soft texture.
Carpet flooring is your home’s largest air filter. It traps allergens and dust to keep you and your family healthy.
When should I replace my carpet?
My carpet is bunching
Is your carpet bunching when you walk on it or does it have wrinkles? If so, your carpet is stretched, and may need to be replaced.
My carpet smells bad
Carpet is your home’s biggest air filter – trapping allergens, dust and other airborne particles, but it ALSO can trap pet stains or mold. It’s important to deep clean your carpet regularly to avoid odors that can develop over long periods of time. If you start to smell pet urine when it rains, that’s one sign that your padding needs a deep clean or to be replaced.
My carpet is old
Carpet is a durable flooring choice, and can last for up to 15 years if it’s cleaned regularly, but it will experience wear & tear especially in active areas. Mud stains, pet stains, and stains that come from your family spending time in an area can accumulate over time. A deep clean may not be enough to help your carpet look amazing again.
Also, if your carpet doesn’t match your style anymore or you just never loved the way it looked, it may be time to consider replacing it. You should LOVE the space you live in. Not liking the style of your carpet is a huge indication that it might be time to upgrade it to match your unique taste.
Choosing the right type of carpet
Wool carpets have a natural look and a soft luxurious feel to them. Composed of wool fiber, they are a great natural insulator that will keep your living room or bedroom cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Wool carpet is an environmental sound and affordable flooring choice.
Nylon carpet is a very durable carpet choice- great for busy families! It is easy to clean and one of the resilient carpet types. With a deep yarn memory, nylon carpeting maintains its shape, resists stains, and holds its color better than non-synthetic carpet.
An eco-friendly carpet type, polyester is often made from recycled materials and has great stain resistance and texture retention. With many styling and texture options available, polyester carpet is a complete solution for your flooring needs.
For the budget-conscious, olefin carpet is an inexpensive flooring solution. It resists stains and color-fading from sunlight very well. Olefin is also quick-drying and resists mold- making it perfect flooring for high traffic areas of the home.
Tips for Caring for Your Carpet
Check Your Shoes at the Door
Most of the dirt in your home comes from your shoes, so consider keeping the carpet a shoe-free zone in your home. It also helps to keep a doormat outside of your front door, so you can wipe away excess dirt BEFORE it makes its way into your home. In Flagstaff, a shoe and boot scraper can be a huge help after a rainy or snowy day.
Keep it Clean – Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum!
To keep your carpet fresh for longer, we recommend finding a great vacuum that isn’t too hard on your floor (we recommend and sell Soniclean). It’s a good idea to refer to your carpet’s warranty when choosing a vacuum too.
Hire a Professional Carpet Cleaner
Your carpet should be professionally cleaned at least once a year to remove all of the dirt, debris, and stains that are below the surface.
