Custom Stair Runners in Denver:

December 10, 2016 at 7:28 pm

Adding a  stair runner to your home adds a touch of class and it can also add a safety factor. Hardwood stairs can be slick and easier to slip on than a stair runner.  Stair runners can be any type of carpet or pattern.  They can be elegant or simple.  They can make a statement or just be a practical addition to your home.  The entrance to your home is the first impression people will have of it when they come inside. Adding a hall runner or stair runner will enhance the appearance of your home.

A stair runner is typically more decorative than standard carpet and is  woven and intended for stair use. Runners are typically woven using wool or synthetic pile fibers.  Each fiber comes in a variety of styles and prices.

Wool or synthetic?
Either fiber can be said to be better than the other in certain ways. They may differ in appearance and wear differently.  At Coventry, we provide customers with all of the information necessary regarding these  differences and will help you make the right choice for your home.

Stair runner installation process:
It is typically installed over a dense carpet pad with small hidden staples. This keeps the carpet from moving.  Having your stair runner properly installed is essential for it  to perform well and last for a long time.  Incorrect installation can result in a safety risk and reduce the life of the runner.  Coventry flooring deals with all types of staircases and hallways every day.  It is what we do and why we have a lifetime installation guarantee.

Maintaining a stair runner:

  1. Vacuum on a regular basis.
  2. Remove shoes when entering the home or wipe your feet well on a entry rug.
  3. Keep the floors next to the runners clean.
  4. Professional carpet cleaner for your home yearly.

Find the softest and most luxurious carpet available today.

November 28, 2016 at 11:40 pm

STAINMASTER® TruSoft® carpet is one of the top rated soft carpets on the market today. It has a luxurious feel under your feet as you walk around your home.   TruSoft® carpet is manufactured from specially engineered nylon fibers to give it a super soft feel.

Today, consumer demand is all about softness.  STAINMASTER® TruSoft® has ultra-soft fibers.   TruSoft is made of nylon 6,6, which has been regarded as the best performing synthetic carpet fiber.  Don’t make a mistake with other soft fibers like polyesters,  as they won’t perform or hold up to traffic.

“As the market trends to softer fibers, we are raising the bar on softness with STAINMASTER® carpets with TruSoft™ fiber” said T.M. Nuckols, director of innovation and product development, INVISTA Surfaces. “It’s the softest STAINMASTER® carpet ever introduced and is among the softest of any carpet on the market.  However, we aren’t sacrificing performance with TruSoft™ fiber. These styles will meet the same performance levels and will have to pass the same battery of tests required of all STAINMASTER® carpets.” Nuckols continued, “In addition, with our other new innovation,

STAIN RESISTANT

TruSoft® carpet has stain resistance to food and beverage stains.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE

TruSoft® carpet is known to be very durable and easy to clean.

 

Disadvantage: The cleaning head of your typical vacuum cleaner can sink in to the soft pile carpet. This makes vacuuming more difficult to do, and the soft fiber shows more footprints when walking on it.  We can help you with vacuum cleaner recommendations if you are not sure where to start.
