Perhaps you’ve noticed signs that your carpet needs replacing, and have been thinking about switching to wood or vinyl flooring, or you’re considering a switch to carpeting. Whatever the case, Cleanpro in Fairbanks would like to offer a quick breakdown of the benefits and disadvantages of carpeting.

The benefits carpeting can bring:

  • Comfort - Nothing beats the feel of carpet under your feet, especially when it’s cold outside but you’re cozy indoors. It also lends an atmosphere of comfort to a room simply in virtue of its presence.
  • Warmth - Carpet provides an extra layer of insulation, helping to keep your home warm even during the coldest months. This is especially useful here in Alaska for obvious reasons! To get the most insulation out of your carpet, choose a thick carpet padding and a dense, thick carpet.
  • Looks - Carpeting opens out your home decorating options, with many types of carpet available in a near-enough infinite range of colors and patterns. Carpeting can provide the extra decorative touch that will really make your house feel like a home.
  • Safety - If you have children or live with an elderly relative, carpet is a safer choice of flooring than hardwoods, tiles or stone. Carpeting provides cushioning so if anyone slips and falls they’re less likely to injure themselves.

Although of course there are drawbacks:

  • Cost - Carpeting can be expensive, especially if you want to opt for luxury and/or environmentally-friendly options. It can be viewed as an investment, however, given the insulation it provides which may lower your utility bills.
  • Upkeep - Carpets require more care than other flooring, and they’re more susceptible to spills and stains. You’ll need to be vigilant and ready to deal with any accidents, but it’s by no means impossible to keep your carpeting in great condition.
  • Mold - Mold is much more likely to develop on carpeting than on hardwood, tile or stone flooring. That said, there are a few simple steps you can take to prevent mold developing in your home even if you have carpeting throughout.
