Choosing the right carpet fitter in Lichfield is very important
for many reasons, firstly the carpet you choose must
be suitable to the area of floor that you want to cover
and also the function of the room. For example also check
the carpet is suitable for any areas that may be prone
to water spillages or high usage. The other important
factor is to make sure that the carpet is not slippery,
one of the most leading causes of injury for over 65
is due to slipping on carpets.
Of course do not forget that you must also be happy
with the carpet colour, look and feel of the carpet or flooring.
It often pays do some of your own research and then seek
professional advice before buying.
The first thing to consider when buying a carpet is
the type of fibre that it is made up of, normally this
will be a wool mix and can be any percentage a typical
example would be a 80/20% wool mix, but beware some sales
staff might lead you to believe that it is 80% wool but
in fact its only 20% wool. Generally budget priced carpets
are not made from wool but made of nylon or polypropylene
or similar manmade product.
Always look at the twist of the carpet, generally the
higher or tighter the twist the better or more expensive
the carpet will be and should also ensure higher wearing
levels. Carpet weights are normally in ounces of fibre
per square meter or yard of carpet
Some man made carpets have a very cold feel to them
almost plastic feeling so I would always try and have
the best quality carpet in living areas that you will
relax in like the lounge.
Whilst many people are using a mixture of infection control carpet and
other modern finishes like infection control flooring or Karndean
carpet generally is the most cost effective flooring
pound for pound.
Also check how long the infection control flooring manufactures guarantee the
carpet or flooring for typically this will be anything from five
to twenty five years, the better the carpet the longer
the guarantee should be.
Finally also compare prices or try and buy your carpet
