Carpet FAQs

As you prepare to choose the perfect carpet for your home, we know there will be many questions surrounding the opportunity. The good news is that we offer answers for all your most important questions, so you’ll have the confidence you need to make the most of your flooring. Here are some frequently asked questions, along with their answers, for your consideration.

Frequently asked questions about carpet

Does my carpet installation require an underpadding?
We always recommend an excellent underpadding for your carpeting. This not only ensures superior comfort and softness but also ensures that your carpets will not succumb to bunching, balding, or premature wear. They’ll look better, feel better, and wear better with proper underpadding.

How long will my carpet last?
There are several answers to this question, depending on fiber type, added benefits, and care. For example, budget carpets can last as little as three to five years, even with the best care. However, high-quality products with built-in stain resistance and more can last 20 years when properly maintained.

Do all carpets cause static electricity?
Static electricity can be frustrating with many flooring types, especially in winter. Using a humidifier and using cotton runners or area rugs can help. Many carpets are already treated to reduce static electricity, while spray-on treatments are also available.

How often do carpets need to be cleaned?
Daily cleaning should be a regular regimen, especially if you have pets, children, or lots of traffic in your home. Vacuum up any loose debris and spot clean spills and messes as soon as they happen. You should bring in a professional carpet cleaner at least once every 12 to 18 months for the best results.

Can I install my carpeting?
We recommend only a professional installation, which is often required to ensure your manufacturer’s warranty is not voided. This install requires special tools, professional experience, and precision for the best results. If you have questions about your carpet installation, be sure to visit us to find out more.
