Contrary to carpeting of decades ago, modern soft surfacing is incredibly simple to maintain and clean. There’s normally no need to request an additional protective coating, as many safeguarding agents are manufactured directly into the fibers.
With cleaned and maintained, there’s no denying how unbelievably soft and just plain good carpet feels to the touch. Underfoot, it provides a cushioned padding that begs you to curl up in front of the fireplace on a cold winter’s night.
Aside from providing insulation, soft surfacing also absorbs ambient noise. With wall-to-wall, you can significantly decrease sounds between rooms and floors. The thicker the carpet padding, the more absorption it’ll provide.
Safety-wise, carpeting does indeed add an extra level of security, greatly reducing the likelihood of slipping, tripping, and falling. However, should an accident occur, soft surfacing will provide a soft, cushioned place to land.
