How To Choose Carpet, Plush Or Berber?

By Uncategorized No Comments

Carpets can really beautify your home. However, choosing the right type of carpet to put in your home can be daunting. Although carpet is not permanent, you want it to last for a good number of years. There are so many choices, how do you choose the best carpet for your home? Let’s explore a few differences between plush and berber to help you narrow down your choices.

Plush and berber carpets are both beautiful in their own right. They do, however, differ in purpose. It is important to think about where in your home the carpet will be placed. Is it a high traffic area? In that case, berber is your best bet. Its dense, tightly woven loops resist dirt for a cleaner look. Whereas plush is more loosely woven which absorbs more dirt. For these reasons, berber is also lower maintenance, as it is easier to clean. Plush is higher maintenance, as it requires more effort to pull the dirt out. Plush is a great fit in a low traffic area, such as a bedroom. It can make your bedroom feel cozy and comfortable while looking luxurious.

Plush may be a better choice for you if you have a baby or pets because it is so soft. Berber may not be a good choice in this situation because of it’s tightly woven loops. This creates a rougher surface that can cause carpet burns. Also, your pet’s claws can easily get caught in the loops and pull them up.

Both carpets have their benefits. Plush, with its luxurious look and soft feel. Berber, with its elegant designs and durability. Each one will serve its purpose beautifully. Hopefully these comparisons will help you make the right choice that suits your needs. Happy carpet hunting!

Is Having Your Tile Professionally Cleaned Worth It?

By Uncategorized No Comments

Often when we think of having floors in our house cleaned by a professional our minds naturally go to having our carpets cleaned. However, have you ever thought of having a professional come in and clean your tile? You may think that it is not worth it,that it is a job you can handle on your own. However, take a look down. That’s right, really look at your tile floors. In particular, take a close look at the grout. How does it look? When was the last time you cleaned it? Like, really cleaned it, on your hands and knees with a scrub brush? If we had to guess, we would say it’s probably been a while.

  

Cleaning grout is no fun and is often a household chore that is ignored. It can be messy, not to mention uncomfortable for your knees and back. Normal mopping will not result in a deep clean of the grout line. As a result, grout tends to have a buildup of dirt, grime and sometimes bacteria. It can become stained from spills that discolor the grout. Not being deep cleaned can cause mildew and mold to grow in the grout, which is not only unhealthy in your home but can cause your tile to appear old and ugly. Calling in a professional is definitely worth it! 

 

A professional will know exactly what type of solution is needed to get the best result for your tile and grout. They will also have the right equipment so as not to damage your floors. They will leave your floors looking shiny and brand new as well as eliminating any health hazards. They will do the heavy scrubbing for you (no more aching backs and knees for you)! Have we convinced you yet? Hiring a professional to come in and clean your tile floors is totally worth it! Your tile, grout, back and knees will thank you!
