We bring our showroom to you and with as many samples as any large carpet warehouse, why not select your dream carpet from the comfort of your own home? Nothing can compare to that feeling of a soft, luxurious carpet under your feet. Or, indeed that lovely, special smell of freshly fitted carpet in your home. Carpets can provide a comfortable area for children to play and add a touch of safety and warmth to any room. With so many different types of carpet, including colours, textiles, and designs to choose from, it can be difficult to choose the best carpet for your Swindon home. Whether it is a beige, grey, red, brown, patterned, looped or striped carpet that you are looking for, we have it.
Nylon is very soft, durable, and resistant to stains. It has good resistance to wear, mould, and mildew, and it is easy to dye and holds its colour well. It is about the same price as a wool carpet
Polypropylene is the most popular carpet fibre and is now as soft as nylon. Polypropylene is highly stain-resistant but is prone to soiling and holding onto oils which in turn, collect dirt. It is, however, incredibly easy to clean, bleach can even be used as part of the cleaning process. Polypropylene is the most cost-effective material that is used in carpets.
Wool is a natural, luxurious and long-lasting material.
Lower-grade wool is more prone to staining, while high-grade wool can be expensive. Most manufacturers combine wool with manmade fibres to create a carpet with the benefits of both. Pure wool carpet is made without chemicals or additives, which makes it an excellent choice for those with allergies or sensitivities to chemicals.
The choice of a carpet underlay is just as important as the choice of the carpet. Here are the main advantages of a decent underlay:
Luxury carpet underlays are thick and dense, which provides that fantastic underfoot feeling. The underlay will absorb any impact and be a comforting cushion on your feet when you walk. This makes for a very comfortable experience when walking on a carpet with a quality underlay.
An underlay with a higher tog rating will provide come extra insulation as the thick and dense materials block the cold air and prevent the warm air from escaping. A new underlay can reduce the heating bills by approximately 15%.
A quality underlay will help prevent wear and tear on the carpet, which can extend the life of a carpet by up to 50%. A quality underlay also protects your flooring from any moisture that may be present within the subfloor, which will prevent damage from dampness.
A quality underlay will help the carpet retain its spring for longer, which will prevent the pile from flattening as quickly as it may do on an old underlay. It will also help maintain a quieter home.
Once you have chosen your new flooring, that’s when our fitting teams take over. We offer additional services to help get the perfect fit. From fitting your new carpet or flooring with underlay and accessories to moving the larger items of furniture, to uplifting and removing your old flooring. All our carpets carry a manufacturer’s warranty, but at Avana Flooring, we are so confident with our fitting service that we offer a 12-month installation guarantee, where we will be happy to pop back and rectify anything that may have gone awry.
