New carpet enhances your home in many ways. Carpet is warm and comfortable. Coupled with proper cushion it also softens slips and falls. The cushion underneath is not only for comfort though. Together they provide sound absorption from room to room, as well as between floors. Surprisingly, carpet improves air quality. The Carpet and Rug Institute states that carpet is not only the lowest VOC-emitting flooring choice, but it acts as a passive filter. Carpet will trap dust, pollen, and other particles and removing them from the breathing zone.
