There is generally a lot of buzz around the downsides and risks of carpet installation, but if done correctly, carpet can be installed safely while providing a cozy feel and sense of comfort to your room space. Furthermore, carpeting that is installed correctly can offer a wonderful look when considering color and pattern for your home.

A common issue homeowners worry about when carpeting their home, involves the concern around toxic chemicals that can sometimes arise with new carpet installation. Things like dust mites, germs, and other unhealthy particles can sometimes be tracked in on people’s feet from outside elements when entering and exiting a home. Working with a flooring expert can ensure proper planning and preventive action that will help deal with some of these annoyances of toxic threats entering your home.

At Home Carpet One, we implement an installation system that addresses the major concern regarding unhealthy particles reaching your newly installed carpet. The solution is called the Healthier Living Installation System, and it’s offered exclusively at Carpet One stores across America. The Healthier Living Installation System was developed to increase the indoor air quality of your home by reducing the chance for dust mites and bacteria that are sometimes present during carpet installation.

The Healthier Living Installation System offers three major components that help prevent the onset of toxic threats and unhealthy particles:

  1. A healthinex spray which is sprayed on the sub floor before the pad is laid down.
  2. An anti-microbial pad providing spill bloc that keeps spills from seeping through to the floor, and prevents the growth of mold and mildew.
  3. The homecare guard system that includes covertrax shoe covers for the installers to wear in the case that they have to leave the room; preventing outside dirt from being tracked into the space. The installers also tape off the room being carpeted so that any debris that comes up from the removal of the old carpet is contained and does not travel into other parts of the home.

Don’t be afraid to choose carpeting for your home. Even though there are risks and potential negative consequences to carpet, Home Carpet One and the Healthier Living Installation System can help guarantee that you are satisfied with the carpet you choose, while also providing the safety you expect for your home and family.
