Proudly Serving Richmond and Surrounding Areas

There will always be rooms in your home where tiles and floorboards are likely to be your best, if not only practical, choice. Rooms such as the kitchen, laundry, and bathrooms see a large number of spills of varying types and therefore require a solid flooring, such as tiles which can be quickly and easily cleaned. And while tiles are a great idea for these utility areas, when it comes to the rest of your home, your choices are not so limited.

Why Should You Install Carpet?

Whether you are looking to build from scratch or simply replace your flooring, the benefits of choosing carpets are many. To help you make your decision, Colonial Cleanpro has some information to share on four top benefits to installing carpet.


Whichever you choose, flooring your home is not going to be a cheap exercise. For this reason, it is important to make sure that you get the most wear from the flooring you decide to install. While wooden floorboards can provide a sleek and ultra-modern look and feel, they are highly susceptible to damage caused by everyday usage. Pointed heel shoes such as pumps may sound great walking over floorboards until you notice that the heel is making small indents each step. Over time, these can add up and leave the floor looking damaged and old. High-quality carpet and underlay, on the other hand, doesn’t suffer from this fate. While you may see your carpet depress when you walk on it, it almost immediately returns to its original position. Modern carpets can continue this cycle for years to come, keeping your feet comfortable and your floors looking their best for longer.

Heating Costs

Especially at this time of year, homeowners are looking for ways to keep their houses warm. The most popular being to turn on the heater. Unfortunately, this can not only lead to expensive energy bills but can also negatively impact the environment through additional energy usage. When installed, carpet has a natural ability to retain heat for much longer than floorboards or tiles ever could. This means that, as the sun comes out and warms up your home, your carpets retain that heat. Even once the sun has gone down and temperatures outside begin to dip, carpets still provide warmth for your feet and your home’s overall temperature. If you are enjoying the benefits of carpet in your home, however, are looking at a stain which you just can’t seem to remove, all is not lost! Speak with a carpet cleaning professional at Colonial Cleanpro by calling 804 324 6471 and ask about how the Cleanpro ION exchange carpet cleaning system can have your carpets looking like new in no time, and able to be walked on within a matter of hours!


Everybody wants to be comfortable as they walk around their home. And with carpet, homeowners can choose the level of comfort they would like. This is thanks to the ability to mix and match different types of carpet underlay with varying styles of carpet.
  • If you enjoy feeling like you are walking on a cloud, choosing a light and fluffy carpet to match a thick carpet underlay can be just what you need to take away the stress from the day.
  • On the other hand, if you prefer solid support as you walk, matching a thinner underlay with a short haired carpet can provide the feeling you like.
  • Prefer something in the middle? The beauty of carpet is that you can have just that. By matching a long haired and fluffy carpet with a thin and firm carpet underlay, guests walking on your carpet can have the best of both worlds.


Last, but certainly not least, are your options. Carpets are a clear winner when it comes to options due to the limited and similar styles available when installing floorboards. Carpets, on the other hand, allow for a lot more creativity and the ability for you to express your own style inside your home. Some of the options include:
  • Solid colors
  • Mixed colors
  • Patterns and designs
  • Short haired styles
  • Long haired fashion carpet
Of course, with the global prevalence of carpets, homeowners can also choose from exotic carpets from around the world including traditional cultural designs and patterns. Of course, for those who have a more luxurious sense of style, carpets made from ultra-fine materials are also available.
