Carpet flooring: easy to maintain and change
Carpet flooring is affordable, easy-to-maintain and provides cozy insulation under-foot. It is also the most flexible flooring option on the market in terms of design, style, color and texture. Installed as rolls, strips or tiles, carpet insulates against noise and provides non-slip safety for walkers of every age. With routine vacuuming and cleaning, its appearance is substantially restored.
New carpet flooring tiles can install easily, some without adhesives. The most common, 19-feet by 7-inch tiles run from $60 to $130 each. Carpet manufacturers make new flooring that is mold- and mildew-resistant, anti-microbial and odor-resistant. Some carpet products are treated to resist stains and soil, making them even easier to maintain over long periods of heavy use. Carpeting remains one of the top choices among American consumers for its cost effectiveness, especially for relative ease-of-replacement, when your tastes or design motifs change.
