Why You Should Carpet Your Homes

Why You Should Carpet Your Homes 1

Carpet is versatile, and is available as broadloom floor covering or tiles. Carpet looks good and is available in colours, patterns and textures to complement any interior design style. It also feels good, its softness creating an atmosphere of warmth and comfort, deadening sound and insulating against heat loss.

Added value, reduced cost

Carpet enhances image and adds value to both domestic and commercial premises. Industry studies show that the ‘total user cost’ of carpet installations (capital cost, installation cost, maintenance cost and life expectancy) is typically up to 25% less than for similar quality hard floor coverings.

Reduced maintenance

Carpet is easier and less expensive to maintain than similar quality hard floor coverings, which require polishing and periodic reconditioning or refinishing. A total maintenance saving of up to 30% can be achieved.

Noise control

Tests show that carpet absorbs up to ten times as much atmospheric noise as hard flooring. It can virtually eliminate the impact of footsteps and echoes, providing a calmer, quieter and more productive environment.
Carpet can be fitted to almost any level floor surface Easy installations

Carpet is easy to install. It can be fitted to almost any level floor surface, saving time and money when finishing new buildings and renovating existing ones.


Well-maintained carpet is the safest form of floorcovering. Hard surfaces can be slippery and dangerous, especially when wet. Carpet reduces the likelihood of accidents and impact injuries.

Thermal insulation

Carpet is a highly efficient form of thermal insulation. In certain installations it can result in energy savings of up to 5%. The total energy savings achieved over the lifetime of a carpet are at least equivalent to the total energy needs for its original production (fibre and carpet).

Carpet made from essentially non-toxic fibre is non-allergenic. If it is properly maintained, neither bacteria nor microbes can breed in it.

Tests indicate that carpeted areas contain as little as half the amount of airborne dust particles found in similar areas with hard flooring.

Regular testing by national industry research institutes ensures that finished carpet is free of any harmful materials or residues.

Orthopaedic comfort

The soft, resilient carpet pile produces a cushioning effect which uniformly distributes body weight, and can thus prevent back pains and potential joint damage.
