Carpet Sound Absorption
The benefits of selecting high quality carpets in any type of application are many. Carpet will provide sound insulation, energy savings, underfoot comfort, a safe, non-slip floor, and be easy to clean and install. We only sell and install the highest quality carpeting in the Northwest Indiana Region.
In apartment buildings and codominiums the conduction of impact noise can be reduced by up to 30dB by installing carpeting, as opposed to comparative values for smooth floor coverings which lay between 5-15dB.
Another benefit of have us install high quality carpeting in your home is energy savings
Carpets can make a significant difference in retaining the warmth in a room in Indiana homes. Carpeting offers low heat conduction and natural thermal insulation. As a result, as much as 10% of the heat in a room which would be dissipated with hardwood flooring or other smooth floor covering is retained in the room by the carpet.
This, combined with the outstanding underfoot comfort of a carpet, can result in a considerable reduction in the use of heating in the transition from a warm to a cold season. It has been estimated that up to 30 days heating can be saved, resulting in an energy saving of around 4-6% and a consequent reduction in heating bills.
Carpet is a safe floor covering
Carpet safety includes reduced slippage, especially when wet, and a decrease in stress on joints The soft resilient fibers of a carpet provide a cushioning effect and excellent orthopedic properties.
The underfoot safety of carpets is an important feature, both in the home and the workplace. Infants and the elderly in particular benefit from the non-slip aspects of carpets and, in the event of a fall, the soft resilience of the carpet lowers the risk of injury.
Cleaning and maintenance of carpet is quick, easy and low cost.
Carpets are quick and easy to install allowing the consumer considerable scope for fashionable creativity – whether they are used in a wall-to-wall design or in combination with other flooring surfaces.
Most quality carpets have excellent wear properties, which means that many years of comfortable service can be expected if the right carpet is selected in the first instance.
