Why is carpet flooring always the #1 choice among homeowners?

It’s easy to see why carpeting is such a popular floor covering. It's soft, warm and adds elegance to a home, and comes with countless benefits, some of which you may not even realize.
A great first impression
One of the great benefits of carpet is that it constantly evolves with larger color palettes, digital patterning with kid-and-pet friendly, sustainable, and eco-friendly versions. So there's something for everyone and every budget.
Why go from location to location to look for carpet when we have everything in our carpet store? You'll see many colors, designs, textures, and construction from names like Mohawk, ColorCenter, SmartStrand, Karastan, and more.
Insulation from noise
Rugs provide cushioning between floors so you won't be bothered by footsteps, beeping devices, or muffled conversations. This makes it ideal for the nursery or homes with young children or shift workers.
An already warm room will stay cozy with carpets, and the opposite is true if the room is chilly. That is because it has an R-value, referring to the insulative properties. For example, measured by the thickness of a rug, R-value can range from 0.7 to 2.1.
The padding has an R-value, ranging from 1.05 to 2.15; when put together with the rug, the insulative property is enhanced. Moreover, carpeting gives the perception of warmth because it is soft, cozy, and comfortable.
Improving indoor air quality
To explain, vacuuming gets only the surface dirt. So rather than circulating through the air for one to breathe, the pollutants and particles that the vacuum can't catch get trapped in the fibers, where they'll remain until scrubbed out with deep cleaning. That makes it operate like a filter of sorts to remove particles from the breathing zone. In addition, it's one of the lowest emitters of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which are harmful substances that exacerbate allergies and asthma.
