CC1 trends Resized 267x300 The Hottest Carpet Trends of 2014

Carpet trends of 2014 are pushing in the direction of personal creativity, and away from neutral practicality.

Carpeting has come a long way in the last few decades. In the 1990′s, the general consumer attitude was that carpet had to be neutral colored and it had to be Berber. Berber, an easy to clean, easy to maintain, and easy to match carpet was practical for so many reasons that many homeowners couldn’t imagine making any other choice. Gone were the days of 1980′s sea-foam and mauve colored carpets or 1970′s shag.

Berber carpets of the 1990′s have left a lasting impression that remains with us today. Berber is still the carpet of choice for public places like office buildings and waiting rooms. Yet, domestic carpet trends are moving away from the standards of the 90′s. These trends include unique and interesting patterns, bright color choices, and soft textured piles. Read more…

baby carpet 300x199 How To Banish Black Mold From Your Carpet

Mold spores are naturally found in the air. All they need to thrive is a damp spot on the carpet and some dust to feed on. Because carpets are often dusty and prone to moisture, they are magnets for mold growth, particularly when the carpeting is located in basements and other areas of the home where damp conditions persist. One of the most dangerous types of mold to have in your home is black mold. If you have this type of fungus in your carpet, it’s in the best interest of your health to clean it up.

CC1 couple on carpet 300x209 What Determines My Carpet Installation Prices?

Of all the various different flooring options that are available for the home, wall-to-wall carpeting remains the most popular. It’s more affordable than most hard flooring options, is easy to maintain and can prevent slips and falls around the house.

Additionally, carpets are comfortable and can actually improve a home’s indoor air quality by trapping particles in its fibers (regular vacuuming and deep, professional cleanings then remove these particulates later on).

But one thing that many consumers often wonder about is the question of how carpet installation prices are charged. Generally speaking, installation prices vary based on factors such as: the carpet supplier, local labor costs (i.e. Maryland carpet installation prices may be different than other states), and standards of quality. This article will take a closer look at these factors. Read more…

family allergies 300x200 Learn How A New Carpet Can Ease Your Allergies

Families who suffer from severe allergies become confined to their medication. Do you forget what a day without medication feels like?

Families accustomed to living with allergies often forget there are ways to purify their environment. These methods can help give some relief in the home.

Perhaps you recently moved into a home that previously housed pets and the dander lingers. Perhaps you just have accumulations of outdoor allergens trapped in your carpet from years of use. Even taking off our shoes at the door doesn’t prevent microscopic allergens from entering our home each and every time we leave and return.

These particles build up over time, releasing irritants that inflame our sensitive breathing passageways. The long-term effect is living in an unrestful home.

Who wants that for their loved ones?

Give your family a new carpet, and grant them a fresh start! Read more…
