Putting carpet in the basement might have been frowned upon years ago. However, today, there are flooring options that make this a unique possibility. Olefin is one of the more popular types of carpeting that can easily be used in the basement and even in some outdoor areas.
Not only is there increased resistance to water with this and other brands of carpet, but you can also find it with built in resistance to mold and mildew. This means that even if your space does fall prey to water or high levels of humidity, you won’t have to worry about it as much.
Wool is a great choice when it comes to flooring, but it’s not always the best in every situation. It is usually best suited for low traffic areas, doesn’t stand up well to the elements and its life span can greatly be decreased by these and other factors.
The good news is that there are many fabric choices now that mimic the look and feel of wool. And all without the hefty price tag that is attached to this sought-after flooring choice.
With all the options to choose from when it comes to carpeting, you might need some professional assistance in choosing the best fit for your needs. At Carpet & Wood Floor Liquidators, we will be happy to assist you with this. Just come check out our selection of carpet at either of our showrooms in Forest Hill, MD and Linthicum Heights, MD.
