Having carpet floors in areas of the house, office or any space can be very cozy and comfortable but there are several things that you should take into account when deciding on the installation of carpet floors.

First of all, you must choose the material, since there is a variety of textures and types of fibers on the market, so that you can choose the one you like and look good. Seeing and touching the carpets can give you an idea of your tastes and preferences. There are some carpets materials with short hair and some with long hair (which refers to the strand of the carpet) as well as some with more separated strands and others closer together.

Important: have in mind that those with short hair need less care and maintenance.

Many carpets are filled with padding, which reduces sound and floor damage. Not all fillers are suitable for all types of carpet so ask Philadelphia Flooring Solutions before installing.
