The new year is upon us, and while many people devote these first few weeks to personal resolutions, there are a few other areas that might need improvement – like the carpeting in your home, for example. Carpet is something that many of us tend to let go for a while, but a new year is the ideal time to make a change.
Residential Carpeting No Longer Needs to Fear the Water
Why should you make a change to the residential carpet in your home? Because 2019 is finally time to stop living in 1999. Technological advancements in the world of flooring mean that you can have the best of both worlds. You can give your home the comforting feeling of residential carpeting underneath your feet while also protecting against things that traditionally harm carpeting, like water for example. Most carpeting manufacturers make their carpet to withstand the dangers associated with moisture. The carpet is treated with a special repellant that minimizes the amount of dirt and soils that are absorbed into the carpet, since it wicks the materials back up to the surface, allowing for an easy clean up.
The Residential Carpeting in Your Home isn’t Warm Enough
Winter in Nashville is always a tricky subject since you never truly know what the weather conditions are going to be like. In the last couple of days the city has seen flooding, tornado watches, and below freezing weather. With these ever-changing conditions, trying to keep your house warm can be a nightmare. One way to ensure that your home stays the appropriate temperature is to update your flooring to a luxurious carpet. Carpet is a great insulator and is therefore one of the best flooring materials for warming your home and for keeping it at a comfortable temperature.
Given how cold it is outside, some might question the wisdom in trying to replace carpet in the middle of winter, but flooring installation does not have to be a big deal, especially when working with the professionals at Ozburn-Hessey. If you have a wool carpet in your home, there’s no reason for needing to wear thick socks all day. Additionally, the nice thing about carpeting is that you can put it anywhere. If your home has traditional oak hardwood flooring in your bedroom and you find yourself shivering and wearing more clothes than you would like, you might think about making the switch to carpet. It will keep the heat locked in and will keep you nice and toasty.
WInter is the Perfect Time for Flooring Installation Since Cost are Lower
It might seem counterintuitive, but winter is actually a great time to install carpet in your home. For one thing, everything involved, including the materials and installation costs, is usually cheaper this time of year since so many people assume that the winter is a bad time to install flooring. The new year is the perfect time to look for deals on carpet since many retailers will be reducing prices on their products. If you have been thinking about making a switch, now is the time to do it.
Making a major change to the carpet in your home is never an easy thing to think about and it always seems like something you can hold off on for a little while longer. But if you are thinking about making a change to the carpeting in your home, 2019 is the time to do it. Contact the professionals here at Ozburn-Hessey and let’s get started.
