We Install Frieze Carpeting Throughout The DFW Area

Frieze carpeting is very popular in today’s modern home decor. We’ve all either heard of or experienced the infamous shag carpeting of the 60’s and 70’s. Frieze is a much more advanced and durable version of shag carpeting while maintaining its timeless appeal. Today’s shags do not require raking, and need much less maintenance, in general, to stay in elite condition. The carpeting is made up of twisted strands of fiber which give it its unique look and noted durability.

Is Frieze Carpet Good For My Home?

Yes. Frieze carpet is considered one of the best carpeting styles for home interiors. Not only is it timeless, and stylish, but also notably durable. These carpets are relatively easy to clean and maintain, preventing future repair costs allowing homeowners to save their money over time. Advantages to freeze carpeting include:

  • Aesthetics: Frieze is the modern day shag — so if you’re a 70’s enthusiast, this one’s for you
  • Durability: The tightly twisted fibers make the carpeting more durable than others on the market
  • Insulation: This carpet style provides homes with natural insulation, which can lower energy costs along with muting sound
  • Optics: For families with kids and / or pets, dirt buildup can become an issue — frieze carpets hide dirt buildup

Any way you look at it, frieze carpets are one of the trendiest carpets on the market. This trend will likely last at least through 2018, and even after it peaks, the carpet style’s timelessness makes it a good long-term investment. If you long for the decor of the 70’s but with modern practicality, this carpet style is right up your ally.

Cleaning Your Frieze Carpet

With this carpet’s unique style comes a special cleaning requirement. Not just any vacuum cleaner will work on frieze carpeting, and the wrong type can severely damage the carpet’s material. Homeowners will need to invest in a vacuum with an on/off option for the beater brush. The majority of time you vacuum your carpet, the brush must be switched off. It is only in particularly dirty spots that you’ll want to temporarily turn the brush on. As for the cleaning advantages to this carpet type:

  • Dirt Resistance: Dirt buildup is less visible with this carpet style, making it good for pets and children
  • Stain Resistance: While frieze is not invincible, it does resist stains better than other carpets

Every now and then, homeowners should have their carpet cleaned by a professional. This helps keep the material in top condition, extending its lifespan and saving you from unnecessary future payments. Also keep in mind that stain resistance does not mean you can ignore spills. What it really means is that you can get stains out before the soak into the fiber, as long as you use the proper carpet cleaner.

Vinyl Flooring

There are so many types of flooring out there to choose from. Some will cost you thousands of dollars and some a lot less than that. The major decision lies with what to choose and how long it will last. If you are on a budget, but still want to have beautiful floors that aren’t carpet, vinyl flooring may be the best choice for you. Not only does it come in a variety of colors, it is durable and if well maintained, it can last over 10 years. Here are a few reasons that you may want to choose vinyl flooring for your home.

Why Choose Vinyl

Options – When it comes to options, people want a lot of them. You will never be in short supply if you decide to go with vinyl flooring. There are many colors to choose from, but not only that, you can make it look like anything you want. If you want to have floors that look like hardwood, but can’t afford that material, they make panels that look just like actual wood.

Easy Install – Another added bonus to vinyl flooring is that it is easy to install. It comes in giant rolls and just has to be cut and glued down to your floor. This is a much simpler process than

tile for example.

Clean Up – One of the best parts about vinyl flooring is that it can be cleaned up very easily. Some floors cannot have water on them or they will become ruined, but this flooring is great with all kinds of spills.
