Benefits Of Having Tile Floor Instead Carpet

Tile Instead Of Carpet

How to Choose My New Floor With So Many Options To Chose From
With so many flooring alternatives to choose from, picking one that fits any home can be a project in itself. Floor remodeling usually hangs in the balance between tile floors and carpet. Which is better? Which is cheaper? Which will be easier to put down? Well, there are answers for these questions.

There Is One Type Of Floor For Each Type Of Home
In the category of "which is better", that depends on the person who is doing the remodeling. The home can sometimes dictate that decision. With a mobile home, it can be harder to get tile floors in because the floors are made of wood. The tiles are harder to install that way. Also, a mobile home tends to be made with everything already where it is going to go, making work-a-round's that much more difficult.

Should I Get Tile Or Carpet For My New Flooring
Carpet can usually be a safe bet there. However, in a house, the floor plans can be changed to allow for tile. It looks fresher, and can make the house smell better. While carpet insulates sound, it also traps mold and dirt, as well as animal born parasites. However, when a tile floor is swept, all of that goes with it. While it is harder then carpet, it is also cleaner.

If Cost Is Not An Issue, What Should I Have As Flooring On My Home, Tile or Carpet?
Tile and carpet normally run at about the same price these days, so cost is usually not a matter. Just choosing the right color tile and getting it put down. While carpet just needs to be nailed down with a little glue and some cushioning, tile does need a little more work. With scraping the old floor, setting the grout, and setting down the tile, it can get kind of messy, but that mess mops up with water and soap. The alternative is stains that you can never get out.

Carpet Stains, Tile Don't
Carpet can stain very easy. It is a fabric-like material and if anything is spilled on it, it can be very hard to clean. Dog and cat hair is also difficult to get out of carpet. Most of the time, vacuums just can't get through it and it ends up needing to be brushed anyway. With children, stains are common place, just as, with pets and pet hair. However, with tile, a mop and some soap will clean just about anything off the floor.

High Humidity Damages Carpet Really Fast
If you live in a state that has high humidness,such as Florida, the moisture gets everywhere and it can be worse in a house with carpet. If the moisture gets under the carpet it may start smell, giving a way to black mold, very common in Florida.

Because Tile Does Not Retains Heat, You Will Use less AC To Cool Your House Temperature Down
With tile this is not a problem. Carpet can also trap the heat during the summertime, while tile will keep cool. If you suffer from allergies, it is recommended by doctor to have tile. Tile is a great and better choice if you have kids, pets, because of the easy care it involves. Also if you have allergic reactions and live a humid state. Overall tile is considered better than carpet.
