Types of Green CarpetWhen looking for sustainable carpet, consider content and performance. Read on, then speak with one of our Portland flooring experts to learn more about how one of these eco-friendly carpet options can fit your project.
Besides being a renewable resource, wool carpet helps regulate room acoustics, temperature and humidity. Wool has the unique capability of absorbing and releasing moisture and heat, thereby moderating environmental changes and making a more comfortable atmosphere.
Fibrous textiles, such as carpet, are more efficient than hard surfaces at dissipating noise, and some studies have shown that wool may have some advantages over nylon especially in the area of low frequency noise.
Wool carpet is naturally flame resistant and therefore is free of toxic chemical flame retardants that can cause neurological damage, hormonal imbalance and headaches.
Wool carpet is an efficient absorber of potentially harmful indoor air pollutants and has been estimated to have the ability to continue purifying indoor air for up to 30 years!
In addition to all these benefits, wool has more crush resistance than any other fiber, meaning the fibers recover from crushing better than other carpet fibers.
Take the next step and discuss your carpet project with a flooring expert at our Portland showroom to make an informed decision you’ll be happy with for years to come! For best results, consider your lifestyle, performance expectations and how your new carpet will relate to adjacent flooring, furnishings and wall colors. Be sure to bring a picture of your space along to your appointment!
Your project manager will help you determine additional options such as baseboards to complete your new eco-friendly carpet installation.
