has been a favorite flooring choice of homeowners for
many years. They are usually looking for the select type of benefits that you
can only get from carpet. The warmth, the style, the color and pattern options;
they’re all part of what makes a person choose carpet in the first place.
Those who have always had carpet are likely to continue choosing it because they’ve grown accustomed to its luxurious feel and so much more. Let’s
take a moment to look at some of the great things about carpet.
The carpet fiber you choose is very important. You should
know exactly where you plan to place the carpet, how much traffic the room sees,

hold moisture more than ten times its own weight. For this reason, it isn’t a
good choice for damp rooms, as it will shrink and easily grow mold and mildew.

fiber choice for these rooms! Olefin is very durable, water resistant, resists
mold, mildew growth and stains very well. It does, however, have a low crush and
melt point, but can even be used outside.
