There are certain times when only carpet will do in your home. For instance, if you have a small child either toddling or just learning to walk, carpet is an important factor. It gives them a warm floor area upon which to play and provides a soft landing if they fall down. No other flooring can offer this.
Carpet can also be important if you have an elderly person living in your home. In much the same way as it provides a safe place for a child to fall, it can be just as safe for the elderly. Many elders have been seriously hurt, sometimes breaking bones, by falling on hard surfaces like the ones in many nursing homes and hospitals.
However, there are other benefits to having carpet in your home as well, and we'd like to tell you about a few of them now. If after reading through them you still have questions, feel free to stop by our Elci Cabinets & Floors showroom in Corona, CA to speak to a flooring professional.
If you've ever had hardwood floors or some other type of hard surface flooring, then you know some of the issues you might have with noise. Whether it's the children running and playing through, or the echo that accompanies even the softest voice, you might sometimes wish you'd gone with another option. Carpet takes care of many noise situations, because it simply soaks up many of the sound waves that go through the air.
