Carpet Installation

Carpet remains the most popular residential flooring out there and the only true soft flooring material on the market. Of course, it’s also one of the more difficult floors to maintain. Particularly, carpet is poor at withstanding the stress of water and mud tracked in from the outside. Thus, the vast majority of homes have some areas of home carpeting and other areas of hard surface flooring. No matter where carpet is being installed in your home, making the right decisions about your new carpet and its installation are imperative to getting a quality, cost-effective carpet installation.
Some of these decisions are pure common sense. If you have a new puppy that isn’t 100 percent house-broken, you probably don’t want to spend an extra thousand dollars for a higher quality carpet that will still be ruined in a few years. On the other hand, in general, trying to skimp on your carpet installation tends to be a costly mistake in the long run.
Options for your San Francisco Bay Area Carpet Installation: Fibers and Pads
Besides different quality standards among manufacturers, you’ll need to make some basic choices about your carpet installation, most notably fibers and pads. Natural carpet fibers such as wool tend to shed, but they will also retain their color and be easier to clean. Synthetic fibers vary in their imitation of these high-quality natural fibers. Most, however, will last longer than natural fibers, despite their degrading appearance. Because synthetic fibers don’t shed, they also retain the grime that clings to carpet fibers. This means more frequent carpet cleaning.
You’ll also need a carpet pad to protect the integrity and lifespan of your carpet. Basic carpet pads will help keep your carpet fibers together. Higher-end carpet pads will also make your carpet feel softer and more forgiving. Some carpet companies will tell you the thicker the carpet pad, the better. The truth is, the density of a carpet pad is a much better indicator of the overall quality of the pad.
