dwellings). Therefore, to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating it’s beneficial to have acoustically sound rooms.


In addition to providing an acoustically sound environment, carpets have extra benefits, especially when installed within the care environment where residents may have breathing difficulties such as asthma.


Throughout the past 10 years there have been numerous studies into the use of carpet versus hard floor surfaces and what effect these two flooring solutions have on air quality. Fine dust can present a significant health hazard, especially for allergy sufferers, as particles may cause irritation when they are breathed in and enter the respiratory tract.


Many of the studies suggest that carpet retains dust particles, unlike hard surfaces where they regularly become airborne. If carpets are regularly vacuumed these dust particles – and allergens that are bound within fine dust particles – are removed from the room without causing discomfort.


Warmth and comfort


Unlike hard flooring options, carpets add a warm and welcoming feel to any room and provides a soft cushioned layer for extra underfoot comfort.

Research suggests that the insulation provided by carpet is 10 times higher than that of hard flooring, making it one of the most effective thermal insulators. Studies have also shown that the temperature felt by residents in carpeted rooms is two degrees higher than in rooms with hard flooring. Acting as a thermal insulator, carpets improve energy consump- tion and have low heat conduction. It is estimated that up to 30 days of heating can be saved by installing carpets, resulting in a four to six per cent energy saving and a consequent reduction in energy costs.
