Once you’ve decided on carpet as the flooring choice you’re planning to go with, there are still lots of things to think about. For instance, what type of fiber you’ll need, whether you want thick or thin carpet, and which rooms you want carpeted.
At Boulevard Flooring Emporium, every question and concern you have is as important to us as it is to you, so we’re going to look at a few of the most important aspects of choosing carpet:
This could be one of the most important aspects of your carpet shopping. The fibers are what give the carpet not only its great look, but also many facets of its ability to withstand the elements. For instance, you should never choose a 100% wool carpet in areas that would see spills, humidity or anything that might leave the carpet wet. Wool holds up to ten times its own weight in water, and is prone to mold and mildew.
If moisture is a concern, the prime fiber to choose would be Olefin, as it is outstanding at repelling water, is completely resistant to mold and mildew and fights stains better than most fibers. Other fiber choices include nylon, polyester, triexa and fiber blends. Each of these can be discussed in detail at our Boulevard Flooring Emporium showroom in Lancaster, CA.
