Why Carpet Flooring?
Carpet flooring brings a comfort and warmth to your home unlike any other flooring.
Think about the moment you step out of bed in the morning. Feel the warmth and comfort carpet brings with the cushioning of each step.
Although we love the beauty of hardwood, laminate and tile we know there are great benefits to carpet flooring.
Here are 5 proven benefits to carpet flooring:
There is nothing quite like the feel of luxurious carpet as you walk across the floor, or stretch out after a long day.
Have you ever noticed that after standing on hard surfaces all day that your body is sore and achy?
That is because hard flooring does not offer any shock absorption so your body, instead of the floor, absorbs the impact.
In addition to being softer to the touch, carpet absorbs the force of impact with each step making carpet flooring more comfortable when standing or walking.
The warmth you feel with carpet is not your imagination. Carpet flooring can actually insulate a home up to 10 times more than hardwood.
As a natural insulation, carpet provides additional warmth during cold seasons. Wall to wall carpet installation actually increases insulation (R-level) potentially saving homeowners like you utility costs.
Numerous studies in recent years have found that carpet fibers trap and immobilize potential allergy-causing particulates that may otherwise irritate those with asthma or allergies.
Wall to wall carpet with a cushioning pad is the best flooring option for creating quiet. Because hard surfaces do not absorb sound like carpet can. Living spaces with no carpet will be louder.
From learning to walk to the elderly, it is important to have slip-resistant flooring in your home or commercial space. Carpet is a great non-slip option because it minimizes the chance for slips and provides cushion should a fall occur.

Shopping for Carpet
When shopping for carpet there are a few terms you should know to help ensure you select the best flooring for the project.
Carpet flooring is available in standard sizing of 12 - 15 feet in length. Unless the room to be carpeted is narrower than these widths, the carpeting must be seamed. The degree of seam visibility depends on the texture and coloring of the carpet, lighting in the room, and even furniture placement.
Backing and Loops
As carpet bends over stairs, its backing may show depending on the type of carpeting, texture, color, and density. Looped carpets can also snag, particularly at a seam or at a carpet transition.
Higher quality carpet will typically have greater pile density, and stronger twist construction. These elements will ensure that your flooring will stand up better against wear and tear.
Once a carpet is installed in a new home, it can look lighter than the in-store sample. Lighter colored carpet might visually expand the size of the room and darker carpeting will seem to bring the walls closer together. Neutral colors are best for resale value or if you change décor styles frequently.
A good carpet pad can make all the difference between a good feeling carpet and a great feeling carpet. Carpet padding is the layer of material between the carpet and the floor below. The carpet cushion or padding, not the carpet itself, determines how your carpet feels beneath your feet. A quality carpet cushion helps maintain the look of the carpet, and can even extend the life and comfort of your new floor covering. This will provide stronger protection against everyday wear and tear.
It is important to understand exactly what is covered by the warranty of your specific choice of carpet. Higher quality carpet usually comes with a better, more inclusive warranty.

Here are Caruso’s Floors top carpet cleaning tips:
Invest in a high quality vacuum & use it regularly. Thoroughly vacuuming removes loose dirt and dust from carpet fibers. When left overtime dirt particles can dull your carpet's appearance.
Frequent vacuuming not only maintains the beauty of carpet flooring, it extends carpet life.
Caring For Stains
Treat a spill as soon as possible! The longer you wait, the more the stain will soak into the carpet fibers.
Immediately blot the spill with a dry cloth or paper towel. Don’t rub or scrub the area, as this could cause permanent damage.
To remove a carpet stain or clean up a spill:
Use warm water to rinse the stained area completely.
Blot clean cloths deeply into the carpet to soak up moisture until the stain no longer appears on the cloth.
If a stain remover is needed, blot excess moisture before applying and do not over-apply the stain remover.
Rinse the area with warm water, and then absorb the excess dampness with a clean, dry cloth.
After your carpet has dried, vacuum well to restore its texture and appearance.
Professional Carpet Cleaning
Time and traffic will take its toll on your carpet. To protect your investment, get your carpet cleaned by a professional every year. Their knowledge, equipment, and experience can do a more thorough job of removing stains or embedded soil.
