ADD A WELCOME MAT
The larger the mat the better. Something nice and thick in front of the door. If that doesn’t work, you might try a mat that says BUZZ OFF!
TRY A ‘NO SHOES’ POLICY
It can be tough to enforce, but once family members get used to slipping off their shoes at the door, it can make a huge difference with carpet dirt.
USE JUST ONE DOOR
Especially during bad weather or dusty days, you only have one area to keep clean.
No matter what you do, you’ll still need to vacuum regularly. Have your carpet PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED at least once or twice each year!
Adds Beauty and Style
You can choose from many thousands of rugs and carpet styles and colors. That means your ultimate choice will reflect how you want to personalize your living space. Carpet can be a neutral foundation, or it can be a focal point with vibrant colors and stronger bolder patterns and textures.

Improves Indoor Air Quality
New carpet is the lowest VOC-emitting flooring choice available. Rugs and carpet actually act as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen and other particles and removing them from the breathing zone. Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve with carpet.
Provides Warmth and Comfort
Carpet provides actual thermal resistance, or R-value. In colder climates or seasons, it retains warm air longer, an energy conservation benefit. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling.
Softens Slips and Falls
Rugs and carpet are ideal for cushioning our footsteps, reducing slips and falls and minimizing injuries when falls do occur. Carpet provides safety protection for the whole family, but especially for toddlers and older individuals.
Big screen TVs, speaker phones, computers and modern sound systems make our homes noisy places. Carpet helps absorb these sounds. Adding a cushion pad beneath your carpet reduces noise even further. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between floors by helping to block sound transmission to rooms below. And carpet on stairs helps mask the sound of constant foot traffic.
