Carpet FAQ

Carpet offers some of the most impressive benefits in the flooring industry. With unrivaled underfoot comfort and a wealth of stunning visuals, you'll see remarkable results with these floors. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions about the material for your consideration.

Frequently asked questions about carpet

Can I skip the padding if my carpeting is thick?
Thick carpeting is no reason to skip the underpadding with your carpet installation. This unseen addition works to ensure your floors will not bunch, wrinkle, or wear out prematurely. It can also help to prevent seam separation, even in busy areas.

Are my new carpets supposed to shed?
Shedding is common with new carpeting as pieces of sheared yarn may still be attached to the material. Frequent vacuuming will care for the problem, which should persist for a few days. However, please contact us after a week if you still have issues.

How long will my new carpets last?
The answer to carpet lifespan varies, depending on the materials and added benefits you choose. For example, a budget flooring with no added extras could last three to ten years. However, a high-quality product with built-in stain protection could last as long as 20 years, primarily if regularly maintained.

Which fiber is best for stain protection?
Polyester is naturally resistant to stains, with stunning colors, but they are best suited for low to medium-traffic spaces. It is not as strong or durable under heavy traffic. However, you can easily take advantage of carpets with added stain and odor protection for the best stain protection, and some are manufactured explicitly for pet owners.

Can I install my carpeting?

In addition to ensuring your warranty is never voided, a professional installation is sure to give you the results you want and need, so stop by any time for more information.
