Carpet offers optimum comfort and more

Carpets have long been the staple choice for many homeowners, and for good reasons. They offer unparalleled comfort, style variety, and numerous benefits. Dive in to explore the world of carpet and discover why it might be the perfect choice for your space.

Carpet types to suit every style and need

The carpet world is diverse, with each type serving its unique purpose and aesthetic.

  1. Loop pile: This type is made from looped fibers and is particularly durable and great for high-traffic areas. It's known for its tight, consistent weave.
  2. Cut pile: With fibers cut at the tops, these carpets are plush and comfortable. They come in varieties like Saxony, textured, and frieze, each with its own texture and look.
  3. Patterned: These carpets combine looped and cut fibers to create patterns and designs, adding a touch of elegance to rooms.
  4. Berber: Known for its rugged loop surface and natural-tone colors, Berber carpets are excellent for high-traffic zones and provide a modern, clean look.
  5. Natural fibers: Natural carpets are made from natural sources like wool, jute, or sisal and offer eco-friendliness and a unique texture.

Benefits of choosing carpet for your floors

  • Comfort: One of the foremost reasons homeowners choose carpet is the softness and comfort it provides underfoot. Especially during colder months, carpets offer a warmth that hard floors can't match.
  • Safety: Carpets provide a non-slip surface, making them an excellent choice for homes with children or elderly members.
  • Sound insulation: Carpets absorb sound, making rooms quieter and reducing noise between floors in multi-story homes.
  • Style and aesthetics: With countless designs, patterns, and colors, carpets allow homeowners to customize their spaces to reflect their personal style.
  • Insulation: Carpets can act as an insulator, conserving heat and potentially saving on heating costs.

Carpet flooring is one of the most comfortable flooring solutions for your home. Di’s Floor Centre’s flooring specialists will help you select the right carpet to fit your lifestyle, as well as the best carpet padding to extend the life of your carpet and to cushion your footsteps. We even offer carpet installation services to get the job done right.

Get the look

Carpet is all about blending coziness with function and style. Carpet comes in an array of colors to suit a room’s current décor, as well as many different materials and thicknesses to accommodate the amount of traffic the space sees regularly.

Classic, neutral carpets are great for increasing the longevity of the floor as your furniture and décor can change more drastically without necessitating a new carpet color.

Patterned carpets can give your space an upscale, fancy look for formal dining areas or dens, while softer, thicker carpets are best applicable for casual spaces like living rooms and playrooms.

Whatever your flooring needs, carpet offers a comfortable and affordable way to fill it.


Carpet helps alleviate allergies. If you have a hard surface floor, you may notice that every time you walk through the room, dust flies up in the air. With carpet, the fibers keep dust and allergens on the ground so that when you move through the house they stay out of your lungs.

Doesn’t show as much dirt between cleanings. On a hard surface, you can see pretty much everything from lint to stray hairs and dust. Carpet can appear cleaner than hardwood or tile, as particles are hidden beneath the carpet fibers.

Comfortable, quiet and warm. Carpet is comfortable beneath your feet and provides cushion and support when walking through a room. This dulls the sound of footfalls to make for a quiet floor material. With padding comes insulation, so carpet is also the warmest un-heated flooring for any room.

Carpet has the most options for colors, patterns and textures of any flooring product. So, you can find a carpet that will fit the style of any space. Mélange carpet coloring is another great way to extend the life of your carpet as styles change.

It’s affordable. Carpet is relatively inexpensive and easier to install and replace than other flooring solutions.

Hides sub-floor irregularities. Older homes tend to lean and sag. Carpet, especially Thick Plush, can help to hide those bothersome, less-than-level sections of floor. It can be placed over a variety of surfaces, including concrete slabs in basements.

All flooring solutions at Di’s Floor Centre have a green certification and have low or no VOC emissions. We also offer hypoallergenic products for customers who experience allergies or chemical sensitivities.

Maintenance: Keeping your carpet pristine

Proper care can extend the life of your carpet installation, ensuring that it remains a cherished part of your home for years.

  1. Regular vacuuming: This is the most straightforward way to keep your carpet clean. Aim to vacuum at least once a week to remove dirt and debris.
  2. Professional cleaning: Cleaning your carpet every 12-18 months can help maintain its look and health.
  3. Spot cleaning: When spills happen, act fast! Blot (don't rub) the area with a clean cloth. Use carpet-specific cleaners for tougher stains, always testing on an inconspicuous spot first.
  4. Use protective pads: Place pads under furniture legs to avoid permanent indentations on your carpet.
  5. Rotate furniture: Every once in a while, change the position of your furniture. This helps in even wear and tear and gives your room a fresh look.
  6. Entrance mats: Use mats at entrances to reduce the amount of dirt and grit that gets onto your carpet.

Things to think about…

Carpet flooring requires regular maintenance to keep it looking and feeling its best. The maintenance level of your carpet depends on how much you will use the room where it is installed.

Carpet maintenance based on foot traffic:

High traffic areas* | Vacuum daily

Medium traffic areas | Vacuum every two to three days

Low traffic or no traffic areas | Vacuum once a week

*If you have pets, then any room in which they are allowed is automatically considered a high-traffic area.

General carpet maintenance advice

  • All carpet should be cleaned professionally, at least once per year to make sure any allergens or irritants missed by vacuums are removed from your home.
  • Make sure you are using a vacuum cleaner that is approved by your carpet’s manufacturer. If you use a vacuum cleaner that is not approved, it may invalidate your carpet’s warranty.
  • For more information about carpet maintenance and best practices, visit The Carpet and Rug Institute’s website.

What carpet is best for my home?

Carpet is such a diverse flooring solution that the array of thicknesses, materials and styles can be overwhelming to wade through. That’s where we come in! The flooring specialists at Di’s Floor Centre are ready to help find the right carpet for you.

Maybe you want Thick Plush carpet. This style is a comfortable, sock or barefoot worthy carpet that is great for your TV room or living room, where you might sit on the floor for movie or game night.

Berber Loop carpet is another popular home carpeting choice, especially in high-traffic areas. It is low profile (compact and low to the ground) and wears better than low profile cut pile. Berber Loop carpet performs well in hallways and on stairs.

If you have dogs and you are considering Berber Loop, it’s worth noting that Berbers can catch on dogs’ nails and then pull into runs, like a loose thread on a shirt.

Low Profile Cut Pile carpet is a dense carpet solution, but can still be soft to the touch. It wears well and doesn’t show crushing, so if you’d like to cover your tracks, this carpet won’t show footsteps.

No matter your flooring needs, Di’s Floor Centre has got you covered.
