|A carpet is a decorative touch that gives the room
flare, color and personality—a great way to make a statement
about your room. Your choice of carpet should be as uniquely
you as any other decorative little detail you might put in
the room—a vase, painting, or photo frame, for example. And
be careful when you choose the style and color of your
carpet. A carpet really sets the stage and the mood for the
entire room. Our carpet & hardwood renovations
Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team can show you a variety of
carpet & hardwood types to select from.
Types of Carpets
There are many types of carpets and kinds of carpets out
there that you can choose from. Our carpet & hardwood
renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team suggests that
your carpet selection should depend on many
factors. You might consider things like stain resistance, durability,
and easiness to clean. If the rug is for a child’s room, factors
like stain resistance will be especially important.
Common types of carpets and kinds of carpets include:
• Cut pile carpets: the standard type of carpet; the carpet
of choice for many households. From our carpet & hardwood
renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team's experience, we
have learned that of all carpet types, cut pile
carpets are the most plush, durable and stain resistant.
• Level loop pile: the low cut type of carpet; the carpet
of choice for many offices and workplace environments. All of
the fibers in a level loop pile carpet are the same height.
Our carpet & hardwood renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA
team believes that, though less plush than the cut pile carpet, the level loop pile
carpet is just as durable and stain resistant.
• Multi-level loop pile: usually a patterned, themed carpet
containing 2 or 3 fiber heights. Usually they are produced with
a particular pattern in mind, but not always.
• Indoor/Outdoor: these multi-purpose types of carpets resemble
level loop pile carpets, but are made with lower grade fibers.
Usually, carpets are woven, tufted, bonded or knitted. Common
types of woven carpets include:
• Single-Frame Wilton
• Multi-Frame Wilton
• Face-to-Face Wilton
Another popular kind of carpet is the carpet tile. This type
of carpet looks and feels like a carpet, but is assembled as
a tile. The advantages of carpet tiles include easy removal
and replacement of damaged tiles, quick access to sub floors,
simple installation in tricky spots around the room, access
to flat cabling and the lack of a need for underlay makes
the carpet tile of the best choices by our carpet & hardwood
renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team.
Vinyl flooring is simple to install, easy to care for and
one of the least expensive options available. When properly
installed by our carpet & hardwood renovations Toronto,
Mississauga & GTA team and maintained, it also provides an excellent water
barrier, making it a favorite in bathrooms, kitchens and utility
rooms. The two biggest foes of vinyl floors are faulty adhesive
(either because it got old, got wet, was improperly applied
during installation or because it was a bargain basement brand
that the installer used to save a buck) and holes caused by
the likes of high-heel shoes, furniture legs, animal claws and
If your adhesive has given up, the old vinyl should be removed
before new flooring is installed. If, however, you notice it
failing in only one section, its probable that the adhesive
just missed a section and you can glue it down again, provided
it doesn’t cover too large an area (larger than a square foot
or so). If the floor is composed of vinyl tiles, sometimes a
single tile will bubble, curl or fail. Replacing it is easy
as pie, provided the reason for the tile’s crankiness isn’t
a damp sub floor. If it’s just a sign that the adhesive was
improperly spread (and one failed tile in an otherwise perfect
floor is an almost sure sign of this situation), then the hardest
part of the project will be to find a replacement tile, which
hopefully you have stored somewhere in your garage or basement.
Let our carpet & hardwood renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA
team help you with such concerns, and stop it from happening
in the future.
Ceramic Tile Flooring
The most typical problems with ceramic tile floors are cracked,
stained or crumbling grout or cracked tile(s). Both re-grouting
and replacing a faulty tile are within the scope of even a beginning
Do-it-Yourselfer and require a minimum of tools.
Wood is perhaps the most traditional and beloved flooring
material. It has a timeless, classic beauty that endures through
changes in taste decade after decade. That swag lamp that you
thought looked so cool back in the 70s may have found its rightful
place in the local landfill (along with your 80s futon couch
and your 90s faux leopard-skin rug), but wood floors always
look contemporary and tasteful. But they do suffer the slings
and arrows of everyday life, including grit-coated shoes, rowdy
kids, frisky pets, dropped knifes and ignored spills, to name
just a few. The resulting wear produces floors that are scratched,
stained, pitted or just plain dingy. Our carpet &
hardwood renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team will
help you fix these type of damages with the special products
that they use for such wear and tear.
