Benefits of Having Fitted Carpet

A carpet is a type of rug that covers the entire floor of a room or a house. It is made of different materials, such as wool, nylon, or polyester, and can have different thicknesses and textures.

Carpet is a great option to add style to your home, but also provides certain advantages. Here are five reasons to install carpeting:

Thermal Insulation

Carpeting helps retain heat inside the home. They function as an additional layer, creating a warm and comfortable environment. In addition to keeping your home warm in the winter, carpets help conserve and reduce energy costs. They also provide a comfortable place to sit or play, creating an overall warm feeling.

You may also wonder, can they help in the summer?

The answer is YES! Their insulating properties also help with maintaining cooler temperatures in the summer. While they won’t cool down a home, carpets provide an extra layer of insulation preventing cool air from escaping the home during summer – just like the insulation in your walls, ceilings, and windows. Because they help trap cool or warm air inside, carpeting can decrease air conditioning and heating bills year-round.

Sound Insulation

The insulating properties of carpets not only help regulate temperatures but also absorb sound. Adding underlay beneath your carpet will help reduce the noise even further. Underlay works as a sound barrier between floors and reduces the sound of foot traffic on stairs.


Carpets soften slips and falls. Therefore, it is a perfect option for the whole family, including toddlers, older family members, and pets. Carpets prevent slipping and create a soft landing when falls do occur, potentially minimizing injuries.

Improved Air Quality

Carpets improve indoor air quality. A study conducted by the Allergy and Asthma Society of Germany, DAAB, proves that indoor levels of airborne fine dust are reduced in homes with wall-to-wall carpet. According to the results, homes with bare floors, surfaces like vinyl flooring, hardwood etc. allow particles to move with air wherever they want. On the other hand, when a home has a fitted carpet, it does not allow the allergens to move and therefore helps maintain the air quality at a good level for people with allergies.


Walking on a carpet is more comfortable than walking on hard floors, which can be beneficial for seniors or people with joint problems.
