Options for your Carpet Installation
Besides different quality standards among manufacturers, you’ll need to make some basic choices about your carpet installation, most notably fibers and pads. Natural carpet fibers such as wool tend to shed, but they will also retain their color and be easier to clean. Synthetic fibers vary in their imitation of these high-quality natural fibers. Most, however, will last longer than natural fibers, despite their degrading appearance. Because synthetic fibers don’t shed, they also retain the grime that clings to carpet fibers. This means more frequent carpet cleaning.
You’ll also need a carpet pad to protect the integrity and lifespan of your carpet. Basic carpet pads will help keep your carpet fibers together. Higher-end carpet pads will also make your carpet feel softer and more forgiving. Some carpet companies will tell you the thicker the carpet pad, the better. The truth is, the density of a carpet pad is a much better indicator of the overall quality of the pad.
