Disadvantages of Carpet in your Home:

  • Maintenance- depending on your lifestyle, carpet can require higher levels of maintenance such as deep cleaning and regular vacuuming.
  • Allergies- Carpet can be more susceptible to allergens such as dust, mold and pet dander. If you or a family member has allergy or respiratory problems, it’s best to choose hard surface options.
  • Longevity- because most carpets are produced synthetically they tend to have shorter life spans than other flooring types. Although it’s difficult to fully wear out a carpet, the colors will fade, stains, and wear in high traffic areas will cause you to replace it sooner than other flooring options.
  • Styles and Trends- while carpet remains a popular flooring choice, fashion in carpet has changed often over time. Harder surfaces like Hardwood and Tile tend to have more of a “timeless” look. This is especially true in terms of durability and lack of fading, which can give an outdated look.
