Everyone knows that homeowners often choose carpet when they have small children in the home. Most often, this is because it’s warmer for children, as they like to play on the floor. However, it can also be a safety feature as well. Children often slip and fall, especially if they are just learning to walk, and this material just makes more sense in those situations.
The same is true for homes in which elderly people live. In addition to providing a much safer place to fall, should that happen, it can keep it from happening all together. It’s much harder for canes, walkers and wheelchairs to slip away on carpet, than it is on hard flooring. So sometimes, falls can be completely avoided simply by adding this floor covering.
In closing, we will let you know that we always suggest a professional install when it comes to carpet. In addition to specialized tools, there is a degree of experience necessary as well. Ask your flooring professional for all the details.
