Upgrading Your Home's Flooring With Carpeting

by Janet Robinson

Carpeting is a comfortable, attractive, and affordable type of flooring to add to a home. However, it will still eventually need to be replaced due to the amount of wear that it may suffer.

What Will Happen To The Old Carpet?

In order to replace your home's carpeting, you will first need to have all of the previous carpeting removed. Not surprisingly, this part of the process will often be one of the most labor-intensive as it will require the worker to pull the carpet off the floor, and this will require pull it off nails and adhesives. If you are looking for a convenient option for disposing of this carpeting, you may want to consider using a recycling service as they will be able to dispose of the carpet in the most environmentally friendly manner.

Will The Home Have A Strange Smell After The Carpet Is Installed?

After the carpet is installed, you should expect there to be some residual odors left over. This is due to the smells of the carpeting as well as the adhesives or other chemicals used during its installation. Luckily, these odors are not permanent, and you can help them to fade more quickly by opening the windows and placing fans to improve ventilation. Taking these steps can allow for these odors to fade within a day or two after the carpet has been installed.

What Factors Should Be Considered When Choosing The Carpet's Color?

The color of the carpeting that you install in your home is an important factor for the aesthetics of the home. However, it can also have some practical implications as well. One of the most notable will be the fact that some colors will be less likely to show dirt or stains. This can include darker colors or neutral tones. Additionally, the color of the carpeting can also impact is energy efficiency as darker carpeting will be able to absorb more of the energy from the sunlight that hits it, which it will then be able to radiate into the home.

How Does A Carpet Sealant Protect Your New Flooring?

Carpeting sealants are able to reduce the risk of the carpeting fibers becoming stained, as these coatings will be able to form a waterproof layer that will stop pigments from entering the carpet fibers. Applying one of these sealants soon after the flooring is installed will allow you to ensure your new flooring is protected from the time that it is installed.
