We bet you didn’t know how hardworking carpet
can be. The floors insulate against noise, so you don’t hear footsteps. Beeping devices or muffled conversations. This makes it a great choice for the nursery, home office or just anywhere in the house where those sounds can drive you crazy. It also bears mentioning that a rug can be layered on a hard surface. It’s not just a design tool, although that can be a sensational look. Rather, hard surfaces can be a little noisy since there’s nothing to absorb the vibrations, so they’ll bounce all over the walls.
The flooring also provides safety from hard falls. There’s traction; if you run, you can stop. It’s also a lot easier to fall on soft floors than ones. Finally, reports are also showing that carpet can aid indoor air quality. When you vacuum these floors, pollutants, and particles get trapped in the fibers, not fly around in the air, where they will remain until cleaned out. This is a benefit especially to those with allergies and asthma.
