27 Aug Questions to Ask when Considering a New Floor
Selecting new flooring can seem like an overwhelming endeavor when confronted with the extensive range of materials, patterns, colors, and styles. Many people considering a new floor begin with the best of intentions, viewing the process as a DIY project only to regret the decision at a later date.
Hiring a professional floor installer is an investment in the home that will pay dividends in the long run. Engaging the services of a professional will come with additional costs, so be sure to budget for it. The following are essential questions that every homeowner needs to ask themselves when considering the installation of new flooring.
If anyone in the home has allergies or respiratory problems, choose hard flooring rather than carpeting. The fibers in carpeting attract dust, dirt, and a wide range of allergens that can linger even after vacuuming. Humidity can be a problem in South Florida, leading to the growth of mold and mildew that aggravate allergies and can make people sick.
Some floors require more cleaning and maintenance than others. That can include vacuuming, refinishing, mopping, and steam cleaning. If some types of flooring become damaged, a single tile or plank can easily be replaced instead of replacing it all.
While any type of flooring can be installed in any room, some are better utilized in specific rooms. Flooring in areas where spills and moisture could be an issue – such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and basements – should have water-resistant qualities.
Flooring will have an impact on the entire room. Individuals should consider if the flooring they choose will complement their current décor or if they’ll end up redecorating the entire room to match the flooring. Choosing the right flooring can alleviate design problems and make rooms feel cozier or seem more spacious.
Kids, the Elderly, and Pets
For domiciles where kids, the elderly, or pets reside, individuals will want flooring that provides a soft surface upon which to walk and play. It should be one that’s durable and minimizes scratches, scuffs, and scrapes while providing a relatively warm surface that’s slip-resistant.
