The Benefits of Choosing Oxford Carpets

The benefits derived from selecting good quality carpets in any type of application are manifold: what other type of floor covering will provide sound insulation, energy savings, underfoot comfort, a safe, non-slip floor, and be easy to clean and install, with good wear and non-allergenic properties, while still providing the consumer with the flexibility for individual creative design?

Sound Insulation Properties of Carpets

Boise pollution in houses can have a serious effect on the wall being of all its users and in this respect fitted carpets play an important role virtually eliminating impact noise through sound absorption.

Therefore the use of carpets enhance sound absorption, and the conduction of impact noise can be reduced by up to 30dB, as opposed to comparative values for smooth floor coverings which lay between 5-15dB.

Safety Properties of Carpets

Safety covers two aspects – reduced slippage, especially when wet, and a decrease in stress on joints. The soft resilient fibres of carpets provide a cushioning effect and excellent orthopaedic properties.

The underfoot safety of carpets is an important feature, both in the home and the workplace. Infants and the elderly in particular benefit from the non-slip aspects of carpets and, in the event of a fall, the soft resilience of carpets lowers the risk of injury.

Health Properties of Carpets

With their superb dust-trapping properties, carpets are conductive to a healthy living environment. Dust settles quickly and is then securely held by the pile fibres of carpets until it is vacuumed again.

The dust is not disturbed by incoming air draughts, and this means that the dust content of the indoor air is kept low. This is particular important since dust particles also act as carriers for germs, allergens and other air contaminants.

Allergies due to carpeting are unknown. The myth that carpets promote dust-mite allergies is untrue, because these are attributable to the faeces of the house-dust mite – the actual allergen itself. Bedding and bed linen contain up to 70% more house-mites than carpets. Regular vacuuming and cleaning, together with adequately ventilated and dry rooms, means that it is virtually impossible for carpets to contain, entrap or transmit allergens.

Oxford Carpet Fitters

Carpets are quick and easy to install allowing the consumer considerable scope for fashionable creativity – whether they are used in a wall-to-wall design or in combination with other flooring surfaces.

Most quality carpets have excellent wear properties, which means that many years of comfortable service can be expected if the right carpets are selected in the first instance.

For example, the benefits of noise reduction can be felt throughout the house. In particular, in flats and on first/second floors when noise of hard flooring can be heard most by people on lower floors.

Energy Saving Properties of Carpets

Carpets can make a measurable contribution to retaining the warmth in a room and therefore saving energy. Carpets have low heat conduction and are natural thermal insulators creating a heat barrier.

As a result, as much as 10% of the heat in a room which would be dissipated with smooth floor covering is retained in the room using carpets.

This combined with the outstanding underfoot comfort of carpets, can result in a considerable reduction in the use of heating in the transition from a warm to a cold season. It has been estimated that up to 30 days heating can be saved, resulting in an energy saving of around 4-6% and a consequent reduction in heating bills.
