The benefits of carpeting might seem pretty obvious at first glance but there is more to this extremely popular floor covering than meets the eye. Most people realize that a new carpet installation will make their home more comfortable, in a general sense, but fail to realize all of the hidden benefits that come with a new carpet installation. So, we had our flooring team put their heads together to come up with this list of the three most unexpected ways that carpet can make your life more livable. If you aren’t familiar with all of the benefits of a new carpet installation for your home, you’ll definitely want to read on!
Peace and Tranquility
If you’ve ever heard a rowdy kid stomping around a house, or the sound of an excitable dog tap dancing on a hard-surface floor, you probably know just how loud a hard floor can get! If having a peaceful, quiet home is important to you, you’ll be happy to hear that carpet is always there for you.
Carpets act as sonic insulators, absorbing sound instead of reflecting it like hard-surface floors. Instead of heavy footfalls, and echoes, the most you’ll hear is a little light thumping instead of the snare-drum-like sound you get with hard-surface floors.
If you drop a glass on a wood floor, it’ll probably break. If a loved one has a slip and fall accident on a hard floor, they could break a bone or worse. With carpeting, however, the glass will probably just bounce and your loved ones are far less likely to slip and fall at all, thanks to the fact that carpet is inherently slip-resistant. Even if you do fall on carpeting, the chances of serious injury are drastically decreased because of the much softer landing. Not bad!
Another way this flooring material can keep you safe is by trapping the pollutants in your home’s air, deep in the fibers of the flooring. Hard-surface flooring lets those pollutants swirl around the home with wild abandon, where they will eventually find their way into your lungs, instead of trapping it until it can be vacuumed up. If you have family members who suffer from respiratory ailments, you should really consider laying down some soft-fiber flooring, to help them stay healthy!
