It’s easy to love your carpet

Carpet flooring has been around a long time, but in recent years it has undergone some major manufacturing changes. These changes have added benefits to the material that have made it much more durable, longer-lasting, and just an overall better floor covering for those who previously could not make use of it. It still has all the amazing softness you long for in a soft surface flooring, as well as stunning beauty that matches your entire decor. That means you’ll love your flooring and so will your guests.

At FloorWorks, we want to be more than just your neighborhood flooring store. We offer excellent products at unbeatable prices, installed by experienced professionals you can really trust. With a package deal like that, your next flooring project could be everything you want and need it to be, and all you have to do is visit us at our Phenix, City, AL showroom. From there, we serve the communities of Phenix City, Opelika, Auburn, Columbia, and Smith Station, and we are excited to be able to serve you too.

Carpet offers extensive benefits

If the undeniably soft underfoot feel of carpet is what brought you over to the flooring in the first place, you’re going to love all the other benefits that await you. For instance, you’ll be able to choose fibers that best suit your specific needs. Nylon and polyester are excellent for the busy home, while wool, the only all natural flooring material, is a perfect addition in lesser travelled rooms where elegant beauty is preferred.

Some fibers are manufactured especially for high-traffic areas and homes where pets live. Stain and odor resistance are built right into the fibers of some carpet brands. This keeps spills and stains from soaking into the fiber and becoming set. You’ll have a floor that looks better longer, smells great, and is easier to clean, both residentially and professionally.

Hypoallergenic fibers are another way manufacturers are catering to the needs of homeowners. This allows allergy sufferers to get much more satisfaction for their carpet experience. Allergens like pet dander, dust, and pollen are all trapped in the fibers where they are held until such time as you vacuum or have your floor professionally cleaned.

When thinking about the installation of your carpet, be sure to speak with your flooring associate about the necessity of professional installation. This assures that your flooring will be installed to perfection, seams will look great, and you’re not likely to see any bunching or premature wear.

Types of carpet

If you are looking for new carpet for your home, then you’ll find a variety of types that fit your needs at FloorWorks. When deciding on carpet for you home, you need to take several considerations — including the type of carpet, your ability to maintain and clean the carpet, and the durability you are seeking. Carpet traditionally comes in four main styles — loop, pattern, textured and frieze.

  • Frieze, which also is known as twist carpet, is made from long yarns that are twisted together. The result is a carpet with bounce and dimension. You almost feel like you’ve got a little bounce in your own step when walking on frieze!

  • Textured carpet also has long yarns that form a high, soft pile. It looks more casual than frieze and is one of the most popular types of carpet.

  • Patterned carpet is an elegant look that gives you a unique pattern. It is flatter than the frieze, textured and looped carpet and is constructed from carpet loops of varying heights to create patterns.

  • Loop carpet is the densest of all the styles. It is constructed from strands of yarn that are looped and are durable.

When considering all of these styles, you’ll want to think about how much you can maintain them and what your home life needs truly are. You can add stain resistance to any of our carpets, making them more durable. Just remember that some carpets take traffic and dirt better than others. Frieze, for example, and other carpets made from long yarns sometimes can get caught in a vacuum cleaner. Carpets with mixed colors of yarn are especially good at concealing stains and dirt. Patterned carpets can make elegant and dramatic looks for a grand entryway. Come into the FloorWorks showroom to feel samples of our carpet and take home a few to test on your floors.
