Renewable Resources for Carpeting

SAN CARLOS – These days, renewable resources are a major point of focus, especially when it comes to manufacturing. In the carpet industry, this has created an opportunity for innovation, with the application of Green practices and materials giving rise to an array of cutting-edge products. For example, you can now find carpet fibers made from corn, a renewable resource that provides a level of comfort equivalent to any conventional fiber. Even better, these new fibers are easier to clean, which is another improvement upon the past.

Regardless of whether you choose a Green or conventional style of carpet, you should have it professionally cleaned on a regular basis (at least once a year). This will keep your carpet looking new and extend its lifespan. If you neglect ongoing maintenance, it doesn’t matter how eco-friendly your carpet is, it won’t last to its full potential. Investing in annual cleanings is a small price to keep your carpet and home looking their best.
