Recently we asked the Facebook world, Why do you like having carpet in your home?? Why do you choose carpet over other hard surface flooring options?
The top 3 most popular responses were:
- that the price is cheaper than hard surface flooring.
- It helps dampen the noise in a room. Between footsteps running on stairs, kids playing upstairs or the sound of dogs running around, it’s a quieter option. Especially if it’s a rental situation or a landlord is choosing what type of flooring to install.
- Lastly, Carpet is COZY. Carpet feels good under your feet and brings warmth to a room. Most moms enjoy having carpet because they can lay on the floor with their children and play or read books. It’s way more comfortable than lying on a hard surface floor.
All of these PRO statements also came with two COMMON cons to carpet being installed.
People dislike carpet in their homes because of allergens and pets.
In 2022, in the state of Wisconsin, 59% of homeowners have pets.
Pets are a huge part of our family and your pets deserve to feel welcome in your own home.
Carpet is a great option when you have children and pets since it provides a soft, warm spot for pets to rest at home.
When we meet with customers to go over their flooring options, one of the very first things we ask them is do they have pets.
