Wall-to-wall carpet in Columbia, SCComfort

Columbia homeowners know what it’s like to step out of bed on a chilly winter morning. If you have hardwoods or tile flooring, you may not want to leave the covers. Carpet is an excellent option for bedrooms, family rooms, rec rooms, or any other area of the home where comfort and relaxation are the top priority.


Hard flooring surfaces can be particularly dangerous in home with small children, seniors, or pets. Carpet is a perfect way to provide traction in high traffic areas, and will make for a soft landing should a slip and fall occur. Carpet is also easier to stand and walk on for long periods of time, as anyone with joint pain can attest.

Wall-to-wall carpet is a great insulator at home. It holds warmth and helps maintain a constant temperature in extreme heat or cold. In addition to the potential energy savings, carpet also helps reduce noise throughout the house. It’s very effective at dampening the sound from footsteps, television or music.

Care and Maintenance

As anyone with pets is aware, hard flooring surfaces can be impossible to keep free of hair, dust and debris. In addition to being easy to clean with a quick vacuum, carpet is also very good at hiding imperfections. Certain casual styles, such as frieze, naturally hide dirt and debris in the home. And other styles, such as Berber or wool carpeting, even resist staining in the first place.


Of all the benefits of carpet, the price point is one of the most appealing. There are many trendy styles to choose from, and it comes at a fraction of the cost of hardwoods, stone or high-end tile. The installation cost is typically lower as well, making it easy to replace when necessary.
