Carpet Health Benefits

Many people don’t associate carpet as the healthy choice for flooring. Contrary to popular belief, there are many carpet health benefits, can be the green and natural flooring choice, and provides endless amounts of styles and color.

Carpet Health Benefits

New carpet is the lowest VOC-emitting flooring choice available and requires fewer cleaning chemicals than other floor coverings. Carpet actually acts as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen and other particles and removing them from the breathing zone. Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve with carpet.

Carpet also provides safety benefits. It provides cushion for our footsteps, reduces slips and falls, and minimizes injuries when falls do occur. Carpet provides safety protection for the whole family, especially for toddlers and older individuals.

Green and Natural Flooring Choice

Many of today’s carpet is made with material and technology that is designed to help limit waste and utilize renewable resources, ultimately reducing reliance on fossil fuels. Corn has become an important role and key ingredient used to manufacture a specific fiber — SmartStrand Sorona. The production of the synthetic fibers have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 40-63 percent in the past few years.

Wool and sisal carpets are especially eco-friendly options because of their all-natural fibers and non-toxic dyes, and there is minimal processing and treatment of the fibers.

Style and Colors

Carpet is very easy to customize. You can choose from thousands of carpet patterns, styles and colors. There are different ways to make carpet — looped, tip sheared, or a combination of both. Carpet is an easy way to personalize your home and go bigger and bolder than other flooring choices.

Fashionista alert: Bold and graphic patterns are gaining popularity in carpet as well as organic patterns created by combining looped and tip sheared carpet. Gray is still in high demand and we don’t see that trend waning anytime soon.
