If you still insist on carpeting, please consider not using carpet padding. Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.
Do you like your floor? Do you want to change your flooring material? Would you prefer your flooring be more environmentally friendly? Do you wish it was easier to clean? It is important to consider these things before starting construction on your new home or remodeling your current one. By researching your options for flooring material you will be able to find what best suits your needs and wants for your new floor. Of course, first you need to figure out what you need and want. Use the following tips to help you decide on the ideal flooring for you.
Carpeting collects dust mites, mildew, and pet dander, all of which are difficult to remove. It is bad for people with allergies, and is often made from synthetics which are not good for the environment. Carpet tiles are worth considering, since they can be easily replaced, one at a time, if damaged or stained. Another bonus is that they can be installed without using a professional installation service. Often these are made from recycled materials.
