Choosing a Floor
Which Floor is for you?
So you need a new floor. You’ve established that much. But where do you begin? Which material will be the best fit for you and your home? When choosing a floor, there are more factors to consider than look. Each of the flooring options has strengths and weaknesses depending on where and how you want to use it. Let Moose Jaw Carpet One help you along the way with this starting guide to which floor may be the best option for you.
Whether your children are young or old, spills happen in family households. One thing to consider if your children are younger is their likelihood of falling. Soft carpet is a great solution to this concern since it will lower the impact and keep them safe. While carpet is safe, it does attract dirt and can be tough to clean. We have some great options for waterproof and stain-resistant carpets, or go for a darker color which will hide stains well.
For those with Allergies
Carpet is the most likely floor to contain allergens, but there are plenty of other appealing options. Cork flooring is hypoallergenic and has a nice bounciness to it that is very comfortable underfoot, and most of the hard surface flooring options are very easy to clean and keep dust-free.
Falls are not just a concern for young children. Seniors are not as active and need a slip-resistant surface such as carpet. Low-pile carpet is a good option. Consider a carpet with stain-guard since seniors cannot always keep up with cleaning. This will ensure the carpet stays fresh.
For Pet Homes
Looking for the best floor for dogs or other pets? Just like children, pets can get a little messy. They can track dirt in, shed and have unexpected accidents. It’s generally best to avoid carpet since animal urine is a difficult thing to clean out of carpet and animal hair can become easily trapped, causing a buildup of allergens. Pet paws and claws are also likely to scratch, so avoid floors that scratch easily.
