Some of the advantages of carpet include comfort, aesthetics, insulation, and household safety. If you have small children, elderly relatives or pets living in the home with you, carpeting makes it so they don't injure themselves badly if they fall.
Carpeting also provides great insulation in the home. This helps keep things cool or warm depending on the season. Lower your home energy costs by choosing carpet rather than wood for flooring.
Another thing to keep in mind about carpeting is how it looks inside a home. There are a number of colors and types of carpet you can choose from. It can truly add a level of beauty to a room if chosen carefully and cleaned so it doesn't stir up your allergies.
Some disadvantages of carpet is how much upkeep is involved in keeping it clean and how it kicks up allergies for some people. It also is sensitive to moisture and stains. That's why it's important to dry stains while cleaning to keep the wet carpet from mildewing and causing allergies for you and your family.
When cleaning carpeting, make sure to vacuum the area thoroughly. Treat stains as soon as you discover them and give the floors a good steam cleaning once or twice a month. This will help remove allergens while cleaning the carpet and keep the members of your household breathing easier each day without aggravating allergies.
It's up to you to decide whether cleaning carpeting and dealing with allergies is worth the hassle. You may have no other option for flooring in the home because you have children and pets, have few hours to clean and maintain wood or tile floors or have the budget to spend on other types of floors such as laminate or stone. Your allergies may be so severe that you can't have carpet in the home.
