advantages of carpet
why choose carpet?
Carpet is a luxurious and comfortable floor. There is a suitable carpet for every room in the house or office. From a soft bedroom carpet to a luxury carpet for the living room or hotel room, a practical carpet for the hallway and stairs or home office.
There are many reasons to choose carpet ...
carpet improves the indoor climate
Carpet improves the indoor climate as it retains airborne dust particles. The carpet traps the particles and keeps them trapped in the fibres until the next time of vacuum cleaning. Therefore, a dust allergy should not form an obstruction to choose carpet. The German asthma foundation has even concluded that carpet retains dust better than any other flooring and as a result the indoor air is cleaner.
Carpet also offers good insulation, allowing energy savings of approximately 4-5% and up to 10% in cold winters. Carpet is also suitable for houses with floor heating. When purchasing carpet, pay attention to the thermal resistance in the technical specifications and the presence of the PRO-DIS symbol underfloor heating to find a suitable carpet.
carpet is soundabsorbing
Carpet is the floor that absorbs sounds. On stairs, in the living room or in an office. A carpet doesn't reflect sounds, it absorbs them thus minimizing noise levels. Height and density of the carpet influence the effect of sound insulation.
A carpet improves room acoustics. Environmental noises are minimized by rooms that have been fitted with carpet.
carpet is safe and warm
On a rug in front of the fireplace, going barefoot in the house or playing a game on the floor: with carpet installed, all such activities are very comfortable. Textile flooring is gentle on feet and joints.
Carpet is also non-slippery. The risk of slipping on a carpet is much lower than with smooth flooring. And if one should fall, the chances of injuries are smaller as carpet is soft and resilient.
