Sometimes carpet gets a bad name. However, typically this is case when carpet is not maintained properly. Our team at AAA1 Carpet & Upholstery Care provides systematic, environmental-friendly carpet cleaning. When carpet is well-kept, there are a variety of benefits that it brings to homeowners. A brief of some of those advantages are listed below.
Improving Indoor Air Quality
Flooring has a high-impact on indoor air quality due to VOC (volatile organic compounds). VOCs can result in a number of health issues including:
- Irritations within the eyes, neck & throat
- Nausea & dizziness
- Kidney, liver and nervous system damages
Although VOCs cannot be wholly eliminated, they can be dramatically minimized. Many homeowners are surprised to find out that carpet has the lowest VOC emissions among all flooring types. Additionally, carpet helps to trap airborne particles (like dust, pet dander & pollen) by essentially acting as a filter. When carpets are cleaned regularly they can reduce the symptoms of allergy and asthma suffers.
Carpet does an exceptional job at absorbing noise, especially when an added layer of cushioning (typically via a cushioning pad) is added underneath the carpet. Homes that have more than one story can use carpets as sound barriers between floors.
Comfort, Safety & Warmth
Cold floors can be quite uncomfortable particularly in the winter. Carpet insulates the floor and provides thermal resistance during the winter. In addition to heat energy conservation, carpet is exceptionally comfortable to walk and sit on. By the way carpet is constructed, falls as less frequent within a home and less harmful when they occur.
If you are considering a new flooriing type for your home, always compare carpet against other flooring choices. You may be pleasantly surprised with what you discover!
