As your one-stop-shop for affordable flooring solutions, we wanted to address the reasons why we aren’t offering carpet. Ultimately, besides the higher cost, carpet is just not as sustainable as other hard flooring options. Here are just a few reasons why you may want to consider replacing your carpet with something more durable.
There’s a reason why carpet shouldn’t be used in kitchens and bathrooms, and the key reason is that it’s not waterproof. Carpet soaks up water, which can easily turn into mold that brings with it an unpleasant odor that can also make you and your family sick. In the case of flooding, you most likely will have to replace it, but certain hardwoods can withstand high levels of water, like what we have to offer.
Especially if you have children or pets, it’s no secret that carpet is going to trap more allergens, germs, and mold than traditional hardwood flooring options. If anyone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma, they are much more likely to have more aggravated symptoms. The only way you can keep those allergens down is through extensive cleaning or investing in an expensive air purifier.
Along with the dirt and hair, carpets take a lot more work and maintenance than other hardwood flooring options. You run the risk of stains, matting, and general wear and tear. To keep your carpet looking brand new, you have to regularly invest in a heavy-duty vacuum to get rid of everything you can only see on the surface. But, even then, there is no way to get underneath the carpet, which means it will have to be replaced, which can get pricey.
While hardwood floors will stay relatively the same over the years, carpet gets clearly worn down, especially in heavy-use areas. If you’ve ever seen “paths” beaten down through your living room or hallway, it’s not an attractive look for your home. Choosing a durable hardwood floor material means no scuffs, no stains, and no scratches, so your flooring can look like it’s brand new for years.
