Make the right choice for your lifestyle and budget by examining carpet construction.
Carpet color and texture affect the character of any room. This is why it is so important to have Gerry’s At Home Carpets bring samples to your home.
Rooms that lack sunlight can be brightened with yellows, apricots or warm beiges. Cool colors, like blues and greens, soften a room with a sunny exposure.
Carpet is specifically engineered for high traffic areas, beauty, softness and appearance. Be sure to inform the sales agent of your specific needs including location, children and pets, so they can assist you with the perfect choice.
Stain and Soil Resistance
Most carpets offer stain resistance, but those who enjoy entertaining or have children and pets should consider carpets with high levels of stain resistance. Soil resistance is just as important as stain resistance for maintaining a beautiful carpet. Soil resistant products protect against soiling and staining by repelling dirt and spills from penetrating the fiber, making cleaning easier. Ask your retailer about soil and stain warranties on each carpet.
You may wish to choose a carpet with permanent anti-static protection built into the fibers. This will create a more pleasant living environment during cold and dry seasons.
Choose a company who constructs its fine carpets using premium yarns and fibers made from PTT, 3GT, nylon, wool, polyester and polypropylene. All fibers should meet strenuous certification testing.
Selecting the right cushion can add years of wear to your carpet. Professional installation will assure you of worry-free enjoyment for as long as you own your carpet. For residential installation, Mohawk recommends a cushion of no more than 7/16″ thick and no less than ¼” thick with 6 pounds per cubic square foot of density, or equivalent. We recommend a cushion of 3/8 inch thickness with 8 pounds per cubic foot of density or equivalent for berber (loop) styles.
