Choosing the Perfect Carpet

It’s hard to deny the fact that carpet can be incredibly beneficial as a floor covering for your home. Especially if you have small children. Nothing is quite as comfortable, safe and forgiving as this material under little feet. Sure, hard floors aren’t nearly the hassle when it comes to stains and spills, but with a little forethought and some planning, it won’t be a problem.

Carpet and Stains

Let’s get right to the pink elephant in the room and address your concern about stains. If you have children or pets, one thing you can count on is that things will be spilled. Whether it’s a sippy cup or finger paints, you want to make sure it won’t leave a lasting impression on your floors that you could really do without.

You can start by speaking to your flooring professional about carpeting that comes straight from the manufacturer with built in stain protection. Some materials are better rated for regular, everyday stains, and other have a special treatment for homes where pets live. This is an amazing benefit that you can’t afford to pass by.

If your life is a little messier than the average household, that’s ok too. Your flooring professional can easily help you choose a special product for stain fighting that be applied once your floors are installed. If added to that built in protection, it only adds to your level of peace of mind

The Importance of Professional Installation

We can’t stress enough how important it is that you have your carpets installed by a professional. While you might have a handy DIY focused brain, it takes a little more for carpet installation. First, there are several specialty tools required to get the job done that you probably don’t have just lying around. Second, special procedures are required to get the most out of your flooring, so as not to cut down on the overall lifespan.

It may cost a bit extra for a professional install, but it’s more than worth it in the long run. It could save your from having to replace your flooring prematurely, and will definitely save you money on tools.
