Carpet can be installed over some existing flooring or a concrete slab as well as damaged or uneven surfaces. The padding that is placed under the carpet provides support and makes it feel softer. It also positively affects insulation and acoustics. The type, thickness, and density of padding needed are dependent upon the type of carpet it will cushion. It?s important to have this type of floor covering installed by experienced professionals. How it is laid on the floor affects both the way it looks and its longevity. Installers use a power stretcher to stretch wall-to-wall carpeting into place. Many aspects of the job take practiced skills, like lining up the patterned and multi-color carpet.
Types of carpet fibers
The most common carpet fiber is nylon. Durable and resilient nylon carpets have a stain-resistant treatment applied in the factory so that spills won?t soak into the fibers. Triexta is a newer fiber that is just as durable and inherently stain resistant. Both fibers are appropriate for high traffic areas in the home. Olefin is mold- and moisture-resistant, and therefore, ideal for a basement. Wool is the top-of-the-line carpet fiber. It?s durable, but also expensive. You may want to limit its placement to less frequently used spaces in the home like the master bedroom. Polyester is also ideal for bedrooms. This very soft fiber is available in deep and vibrant colors.
