Carpeting is good for the air quality in your home.

January 9, 2018 at 10:52 pm

Indoor air quality is more important than ever. The EPA reports that we spend approximately 90% of our time indoors.  Carpeting in your home can actually provide a healthier quality of air in your house. Carpet is made up of piles of carpet that form a three-dimensional structure. This structure traps dust, pollen, pet dander and allergans so that they do not continue to circulate in the room like they would if you have tile or hardwoods.  You need to clean your carpet regularly with a good vacuum cleaner fitted with a HEPA filter every week to remove the particles.

Carpeting  requires less chemicals to clean than other flooring coverings, which helps reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in the air.  We primarily use a vacuum to remove the dirt. VOCs are an outdoor pollutant emitted from cleaning agents that can accumulate indoors without proper ventilation.   If you have tile or hardwoods you will typically be using cleaners that have VOC’s.

When scientifically tested, the air above carpet contains fewer allergens and dust mites than the air above hard surfaces, says Kathryn O. Sellers, director of public relations for the  Carpet and Rug Institute,  Dalton, Ga.  She feels carpet is an asset rather than a detriment to air quality because it tends to hold allergens out of the air until they are vacuumed away. But, here’s the catch: the carpet must be vacuumed and cleaned often enough.

It is recommended that you have your carpeting professional deep cleaned every year so that any deep down dirt gets removed.

When you buy carpet make sure you look for: Certifications like Green Label Plus that certify that the brand of carpet is a low emitter of volatile organic compounds.

There are so many options to consider when choosing carpeting. Today’s carpet has a huge variety of styles,
fibers, and colors. The following information will help you find the best carpeting for
your lifestyle. You should ask the following questions to help you decide.

• What is the main use for the room(s) going to be?

• What kind of traffic do you expect?
• Will this room(s) be the center of activity in your home?
• Does this room have direct access from outside where you can track dirt in?
• Do you have pets and or children?
• Am I planning to be in the house for over 10 years? Over 5? Shorter? Longer?
• What kind of statement am I trying to make in regards to styling?
• Are you more into soft fibers? Or lower profile carpets?

Color and Texture is becoming more Prominent
Some of the new carpet trends are geared toward tweed colors and subtle patterns.
Softer fibers and extremely stain resistant yarns are also on the rise, Many tend to
coordinate easily with designs and patterns in other furnishings. This new style of carpet
is changing the perception of how carpet is perceived as not only a background to
showcase other furnishing but also can bring the focal point to the carpet itself.
At Coventry Carpets, we are well versed with the current design trends in color and
fashion, and are happy to help you chose the correct carpet for your home. Our unique
mobile showroom can bring these options directly to your home, so you can see them in
