Healthier Living with Healthier Carpet Installation

Getting new carpet or flooring in your home is always exciting. A splash of color, a change to hardwood, an environmentally friendly floor – choose whatever scheme will fit your personal style and your design aesthetic. We all know that getting new flooring means new installation system — and that it can sometimes be an inconvenient process. Fortunately, today there are options available to help make sure that your floor installation is as convenient and safe as possible. Gone are the days of simply ripping up old carpets and floors. Instead, Healthier Living Installation practices make sure that your family and home are safe during and after the flooring process.

Seal It Off, Seal It In

In the old days, dirty, dingy carpets were just ripped up potentially releasing harmful germs and allergens. Carpet installation could mean allergy attacks for days. Today, the safest way to remove carpet is by sealing off the room completely. The carpet is then carefully vacuumed using special HEPA filters to remove dust, dirt, grim, allergens and more. Once the carpet and old padding are removed, the floor is vacuumed again. This process keeps the dust and grim of construction out of the rest of the house and helps prevent potentially dangerous situations.

Before It All Begins

Another important part of safe carpet installation happens before the padding is laid down. Spraying the flooring with safe and effective chemicals will reduce the occurrence of mold, mildew, bacteria, and other dangerous materials. It will also help clear up any existing problems. Finally, the spray will make sure that any remaining dust and allergens don’t get into the air during the installation process.

What’s In A Pad?

We all know how important it is to install a good pad underneath your carpet. This is especially true if there are small children or pets in the home. A good pad does more than give a softer footing – it is also antimicrobial. Selecting a pad designed to help prevent mold and mildew will help keep your family safe. Many of these same pads also have special ‘leak’ guards built just in case there is a spill. An antimicrobial pad is also a good idea for anyone who is particularly sensitive to mold, mildew, or other allergens.

When it is time to install new carpet in your home, take the time to understand what your options are. Standard installation is always an option; however, for those with particular concerns about allergens and harmful particulates, it may be time to consider selecting an installation process which is designed to protect you from just these things. Investing in an antimicrobial pad, and having your room sealed during installation and sprayed prior to the pad being installed, you can protect your family and your home from disease-causing microbes. Contract Carpet One offers these options in the Healthier Living Carpet Installation System.
