April Showers Bring May Flowers: Benefits of Carpet During Spring

April 4, 2024

Despite the common belief that carpet is ill-suited for the unpredictable challenges of spring; from rain-soaked shoes to pesky pollen,  modern innovations have transformed carpet into a resilient flooring option against nature’s whims. Thanks to advanced installation techniques, cutting-edge water and stain-resistant fibers, and protective subfloor layers, today’s carpets are prepared to withstand rain, pests, and allergens that come with the season. So, while the elements may rage outside, your carpet remains dependable, offering comfort, style, and peace of mind indoors.

Installation Process

The typical carpet installation process begins with measuring the room to determine the amount of carpet needed and ensuring the subfloor is clean and smooth. At Dalton Floor Tailor, we prioritize your safety and well-being in your home. That’s why we include our Healthier Living Installation System™ with every flooring installation. This system involves several essential steps to ensure a clean and healthy environment. First, we remove your old flooring and thoroughly HEPA vacuum the subfloor to eliminate dust and particles. Then, our installers apply HealthinEx®, an EPA-approved solution, to the subfloor to prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. This treatment meets industry Indoor Air & Surface Quality Standards™, guaranteeing a healthier indoor environment. After installing your new flooring, we conduct another round of HEPA vacuuming for carpets to ensure a pristine finish. Additionally, our Healthier Living Installation System™ comes with a double warranty, offering peace of mind with industry-leading guarantees on all carpet installations. With our antimicrobial process safeguarding your subfloor, you can enjoy long-term protection against bacteria growth, mold, and mildew, ensuring the longevity and cleanliness of your floors. 

Once the subfloor is ready, carpet padding is placed to provide cushioning and insulation. There are numerous benefits of carpet padding, which include ensuring your carpet remains comfortable, durable, and functional for years to come. It also provides a soft and cushioned feel, reducing noise with sound absorption for a quieter indoor environment. Additionally, carpet padding acts as a thermal barrier by improving insulation. By absorbing impact and reducing wear on carpet fibers, it extends the life of your carpet while promoting cleaner indoor air quality through antimicrobial properties. Overall, investing in quality carpet padding enhances the comfort and performance of your carpeted floors, ensuring a more enjoyable living space.

After padding is installed and the carpet is cut, the latter is then laid in place, and seams are secured. The standard of modern carpet has been redefined. In addition to water-resistance, stain-resistance, and hypoallergenic properties, today’s carpets can include several other innovations designed to enhance durability, functionality, and aesthetics. Some notable advancements include fade-resistance technologies, which  are designed to ensure carpets maintain their color vibrancy, even in areas exposed to sunlight or artificial lighting. In addition, some carpets are even made from eco-friendly materials, formulated from recycled or renewable ingredients while also using integrated technology features such as built-in antimicrobial protection and moisture barriers. With all of these new advances you’d think the softness of carpet would be sacrificed, but that is not the case! Innovative fiber technologies and manufacturing techniques have created carpets with a luxurious, soft feel underfoot, providing ultimate comfort and relaxation. Here at Dalton Floor Tailor we have several carpet options with all the characteristics listed above, like Mohawk SmartStrand® Forever Clean™, which is known to be durable, stain-resistant, and pet-friendly.
