Carpet flooring is one of the most comfortable flooring solutions for your home. Di’s Floor Centre’s flooring specialists will help you select the right carpet to fit your lifestyle, as well as the best carpet padding to extend the life of your carpet and to cushion your footsteps. We even offer carpet installation services to get the job done right.
Get the look
Carpet is all about blending coziness with function and style. Carpet comes in an array of colors to suit a room’s current décor, as well as many different materials and thicknesses to accommodate the amount of traffic the space sees regularly.
Classic, neutral carpets are great for increasing the longevity of the floor as your furniture and décor can change more drastically without necessitating a new carpet color.
Patterned carpets can give your space an upscale, fancy look for formal dining areas or dens, while softer, thicker carpets are best applicable for casual spaces like living rooms and playrooms.
Whatever your flooring needs, carpet offers a comfortable and affordable way to fill it.
Carpet helps alleviate allergies. If you have a hard surface floor, you may notice that every time you walk through the room, dust flies up in the air. With carpet, the fibers keep dust and allergens on the ground so that when you move through the house they stay out of your lungs.
Doesn’t show as much dirt between cleanings. On a hard surface, you can see pretty much everything from lint to stray hairs and dust. Carpet can appear cleaner than hardwood or tile, as particles are hidden beneath the carpet fibers.
Comfortable, quiet and warm. Carpet is comfortable beneath your feet and provides cushion and support when walking through a room. This dulls the sound of footfalls to make for a quiet floor material. With padding comes insulation, so carpet is also the warmest un-heated flooring for any room.
Carpet has the most options for colors, patterns and textures of any flooring product. So, you can find a carpet that will fit the style of any space. Mélange carpet coloring is another great way to extend the life of your carpet as styles change.
It’s affordable. Carpet is relatively inexpensive and easier to install and replace than other flooring solutions.
Hides sub-floor irregularities. Older homes tend to lean and sag. Carpet, especially Thick Plush, can help to hide those bothersome, less-than-level sections of floor. It can be placed over a variety of surfaces, including concrete slabs in basements.
All flooring solutions at Di’s Floor Centre have a green certification and have low or no VOC emissions. We also offer hypoallergenic products for customers who experience allergies or chemical sensitivities.
Things to think about…
Carpet flooring requires regular maintenance to keep it looking and feeling its best. The maintenance level of your carpet depends on how much you will use the room where it is installed.
High traffic areas* | Vacuum daily
Medium traffic areas | Vacuum every two to three days
Low traffic or no traffic areas | Vacuum once a week
*If you have pets, then any room in which they are allowed is automatically considered a high-traffic area.

General carpet maintenance advice
- All carpet should be cleaned professionally, at least once per year to make sure any allergens or irritants missed by vacuums are removed from your home.
- Make sure you are using a vacuum cleaner that is approved by your carpet’s manufacturer. If you use a vacuum cleaner that is not approved, it may invalidate your carpet’s warranty.

What carpet is best for my home?
Carpet is such a diverse flooring solution that the array of thicknesses, materials and styles can be overwhelming to wade through. That’s where we come in! The flooring specialists at Di’s Floor Centre are ready to help find the right carpet for you.
Berber Loop carpet is another popular home carpeting choice, especially in high-traffic areas. It is low profile (compact and low to the ground) and wears better than low profile cut pile. Berber Loop carpet performs well in hallways and on stairs.
Low Profile Cut Pile carpet is a dense carpet solution, but can still be soft to the touch. It wears well and doesn’t show crushing, so if you’d like to cover your tracks, this carpet won’t show footsteps.
