Benefits of each flooring type 

Carpet flooring

Carpet is ideal for family homes or offices that want a flooring solution that’s simple and problem-free. It rarely aggravates allergies or asthma, as carpet traps dust particles that hoovering can properly dispose of. Soft underfoot carpet flooring is comfortable to walk on and has soundproofing benefits that can keep noise under control, great for residential homes with children or pets. If you want a safe flooring solution that prevents slip and fall accidents carpet is always recommended. The material is less slippery when compared to its competitors, and if someone were to take a tumble its soft material would help prevent any serious injuries. 

Wood flooring 

For a long-term flooring solution wood flooring is the renowned option that lasts for decades and even a lifetime. Wood flooring comes in a range of different wood types that include oak, maple, cedar, walnut, bamboo, ash and merbau. It's durable against warping over time, or changing when in contact with moisture more so than its competitors, making it ideal for buildings that want a floor that’s going to look good for many years. If you want to add a traditional or luxurious tone to your home or business we recommend durable wood flooring, it’s visually stunning and while it does require more maintenance, in the long run, it’s worth it.
