WHY CHOOSE CARPET?
Carpet comes with a comfort that is soft and warm and creates a safe, sure-footing surface for any space. It is available in an endless variety of textures, styles and colours and is used in a wide range of residential and commercial applications such as home theatres, bedrooms, professional offices and hotel suites. Carpet absorbs sound which helps to reduce household noises and the insulative properties of some carpets can even assist in regulating humidity and temperatures in the space. For a prestigious finish and the ultimate level of comfort, look no further than carpet.

There are several benefits to having carpet in your home. First, carpet provides insulation, which can help keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Additionally, carpet provides a soft, comfortable surface to walk on, which can be especially beneficial for people with joint pain or other mobility issues. Carpet can also help absorb sound and reduce noise levels in your home, making it a popular choice for bedrooms and living areas. Finally, carpet comes in a wide range of colours and styles, allowing you to customise your home’s look and feel to your personal preferences.
To protect your new carpet from stains, it’s important to act quickly if a spill occurs. Blot up as much of the liquid as possible using a clean, absorbent cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing the area, as this can push the stain deeper into the carpet fibres. If necessary, you can use a carpet cleaner specifically designed for your type of carpet to remove the stain. Additionally, consider using a carpet protector spray or mat in high-traffic areas, such as entryways or near food and drink stations.
It’s generally best to wait at least 24 hours after carpet installation before walking on your new carpet. This allows time for the carpet adhesive to dry and fully bond with the subfloor. Walking on the carpet too soon can cause it to shift or buckle, which can result in wrinkles or other damage.
Yes, it’s normal for new carpet to shed fibres for the first few weeks after installation. This is due to loose fibres that were not fully woven into the carpet during the manufacturing process. Regular vacuuming can help remove these loose fibres and prevent them from accumulating on the carpet surface.
It’s important to vacuum your new carpet regularly to prevent dirt and debris from accumulating in the fibres. Depending on the amount of foot traffic in your home, you may need to vacuum your carpet once or twice a week. Be sure to use a vacuum with good suction and a beater brush that can effectively remove debris from the carpet fibres.
The lifespan of your new carpet will depend on several factors, including the quality of the carpet, the amount of foot traffic it receives, and how well it’s maintained. Generally, high-quality carpet that’s well-maintained can last for 10-15 years or more. Regular vacuuming, prompt removal of stains and spills, and periodic deep cleaning can help extend the life of your carpet and keep it looking and feeling its best.
The choice between a light or dark coloured carpet is largely a matter of personal preference and the overall style of your home. Light coloured carpets can make a room feel larger and more spacious, while dark coloured carpets can create a cosy and intimate atmosphere. Keep in mind that light coloured carpets may show dirt and stains more easily than darker carpets, so they may require more frequent cleaning.
When choosing carpet for your home, consider factors such as foot traffic, room usage and your personal preferences for colour and texture. For high-traffic areas, a more durable carpet material, such as nylon or polyester, may be best. For bedrooms or areas where comfort is a priority, opt for softer, plush carpet options. Be sure to also consider the carpet’s maintenance requirements, as some types of carpet may require more frequent cleaning or maintenance than others.
