You all might have heard about the magical carpet that can fly, right? Well, that’s an ancient myth. In today’s modern world, many other myths lead some people to not to go for carpet installation Melbourne.
Read below the myths of carpet installation and find out which one do you believe in.
Myth #1: Flooring is cheaper than carpet installation
Wrong! Carpeting is inexpensive. It’s way cheaper than that of the stone or hardwood flooring. In the same way, some flooring is less expensive than carpet installation. In general terms, carpet installation is quite flimsy and can wear out if not handled accurately. But, if you consider the cost factor after 5 years, carpet replacement will still be inexpensive than regular floor maintenance cost.
Myth #2: You have to endure daily maintenance with carpet installation
Well, the basic mantra of having a durable carpet in the home is to “be careful.” You can’t just put heavy furniture on the carpet (which can tear the material or give rusty stains) and expect the utmost longevity. You have to be careful about how you are treating it. Also, one must clean the carpets with a vacuum cleaner that too more often. Just a regular cleaning is enough to make your carpets long-lasting. So start cleaning!
Myth #3: Carpets lead to allergies, harbour bacteria, and asthma
Well, wrong again. Instead of being a source of allergies and other diseases, carpets trap airborne such as pollen and dust; therefore they aren’t rotating in your home’s air anymore. And like we said before if the carpet is not cleaned daily, these particles will begin to collect, which further may lead to various health hazards. To keep your home safe, you can even ask the professionals that you have hired for carpet installation Melbourne about health risks with carpet and how can you avoid them.
Myth #4: Carpets are bad for the environment
Unlike the old times, manufacturers, nowadays, are going green. There are abundant eco-friendly carpets available out there. All you have to do is just check the instructions carefully or just ask the retailer whether or not the carpet has made with environment-friendly material. Plus, carpets are insulated by nature. Therefore, if you live in a place where winters are extremely cold, carpets can keep you and your family warm and save a lot of energy.
Myth #5: underlay thickness doesn’t matter when you have installed the carpet
Well, underlay thickness has nothing to do with the carpet. You home require a thick and high-quality underlay anyway. It’s the foundation of any building and using poor quality underlay just because you have installed the carpets on. Even the best carpet demands a sturdy underlay. So go for strong, durable, and high-quality underlay for the sake of safety.
All these myths might have been stopping you from getting the carpet of your dreams. But, we have demystified it, yes?
