Did You Know?~~Our co-owner Elisabeth was interviewed for the "Wild About Tile" feature article in the October edition of Atlanta Home Improvement Magazine.
~~The Motel 6 chain has specified laminate flooring in all renovations and new constructions. The Sourcing Director states that while the laminate flooring is more expensive initially than carpeting, due to the longer wear, durability, and low maintenance the long term cost of ownership is less. The green attributes of laminate are also a consideration, including the energy conservation in that the housekeeper does not have to vacuum and steam clean and only has to damp mop. If laminates perform great for Motel 6 (they tested for over 4 years) you know they will hold up at your house.
~~We recently had a client who accumulated almost $900 in Decorating Dollars by referring friends and family to Enhance Floors & More. She purchased $3100 of carpet, but was only "out of pocket" $2200. She was thrilled, and we are grateful for her referrals. When you tell your friends about Enhance Floors, make sure they know to tell us your name when we ask how they found about us, then once the job is completed check your mailbox for your Decorating Dollars. It's like money for nothing!
Ask The ExpertI am confused about polyester carpet. Is it good or bad?When many people think of polyester carpet, they are remembering the polyester carpets from the 70s, which did not perform well. As with everything, technology marches on, and what is available today is vastly improved from 30 years ago. (Think of a beeper compared to the cell phone you have today. There's no comparison!) Polyester offers exceptional softness, making it ideal for thick cut piles and is also naturally stain and fade resistant. It has excellent color clarity, color retention, strength, and abrasion resistance. Polyester is also less costly than nylon and Triexta (SmartStrand.)
If you have kids and pets, consider solution dyed polyester. These fibers can be cleaned very aggressively without damage to the carpet and offer stain warranties on mustard, bleach, red wine, Kool-Aid, and pet accidents, items that are excluded from most warranty coverage.
Nylon is traditionally cited as the most durable fiber, but new technology fibers have been found to perform just as well as nylon, particularly Triexta and the newest generation of polyester fibers. More important than the specific fiber is the construction of the carpet. Look for cut pile carpets that are tightly twisted and dense (fibers very close together.) Be aware that no entry-level ("builders grade") carpet will perform well long term, regardless of fiber content.
