SOLUTION DYED Carpets Throughout For Easy Cleaning
We install only solution dyed carpet in our homes. This means the our carpet color is continuous all the way throughout the carpet fiber, unlike our competitors carpet that only has color on the outside fibers of their carpet.
You could look at our carpet like a carrot with color all the way to the core while others carpet is more like an apple with color only on the outside skin.
Because our carpet is solution dyed you can clean and disinfect our carpet with a diluted bleach solution with out any damage to the carpet.
Premium Rebound Carpet Pad & Tack Strips
Some manufactures take a short cut and staple their carpet down in place of our residential tack strip application.
