Our Top 3 Carpets and Top 6 Hardwood Floors
Cleaning A Lovely Floor Is a Pleasure
As an upholstery cleaning services company, we love to clean floors and carpets no matter where or what they are – but there is something very satisfying about cleaning a beautiful floor or carpet that one of our favorite local companies has created! We interviewed Carpet One based in San Ramon, California and together we’ve created a list of the best options for you to choose from.
Our Top 3 Carpets
Carpet #1 Exquisite Delight – Karastan
Exquisite Delight comes from a company called Karastan, which is a very well-respected machine-made carpet mill. They have been around forever – they began in the 1920s! – and they are one of the industry leaders. Although they have many different styles to choose from, Exquisite Delight is a Karastan carpet that looks beautiful in every home.
Carpet #2 Saf Canterbury Park II – Carpet One
Although this is a standard cut pile carpet, it offers an unbeatable warranty of up to 120 days – so if you change your mind for any reason, you can have a replacement free of charge (limitations apply). In our opinion, this warranty is the greatest security blanket anybody could ever ask for. Bonus: the Canterbury Park II is very affordable and looks great in every home!
Carpet #3 One More Hour – Anderson Tuftex
One of the greatest value products offered on the market! There are many styles of Anderson Tuftex carpet, but One More Hour is always their top seller. Even though this product is used day in and day out for house rentals because of its versatility, don’t think for one second that this product wouldn’t last and look great in your home.
Comparing Carpet and Hardwood Floors
Many people discuss the pros and cons of carpet versus hardwood – for example, The Spruce notes that while the cost of a carpet is lower than wooden floors, a floor that is made of quality timber could last up to 100 years – so to help us weigh them, let’s look at some great hardwood floor options!
Our Top 6 Hardwood Floorings
Hardwood #1 Luxury Vinyl Tile – Hardwood Floors by Jonathan Gayer
This product looks like hardwood, is wonderfully durable, scratch-resistant, and waterproof – what’s not to love? Hardwood Floors by Jonathan Gayer specializes in unfinished and pre-finished hardwood flooring as well as vinyl tiles. They look fabulous at home, in an office, or even in commercial buildings.
Hardwood #2 By Hand Flooring – The King’s Craftsmen Hardwood & Carpet
If you are looking for something extra special from your hardwood floor installation, you need to check out the ‘By Hand’ range from the guys at The King’s Craftsmen Hardwood & Carpet. They hand cut the wood, stain the pieces in different shades, and then assemble it piece by piece in an intricate pattern.
Hardwood #3 Oak Hardwood – Diablo Flooring
Diablo Flooring is based in Danville and provides a unique look and feel for your home with beautiful oak flooring and other woods like red oak and hickory. In 2013, 2014, and 2015, Diablo Flooring made it on the exclusive Inc 5000 list as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America!
Hardwood #4 – Vellichor Hardwood Floors
Vellichor Floors has tons of experience and expertise with hardwood – in fact, they’re one of the best hardwood flooring specialists in the country. Vellichor works hard to render and enrich the natural beauty of wood, making it look amazing and last for generations – and there are lots of styles to choose from too, which we just love.
Hardwood #5 – Brentwood Hills Hardwood Floors
Brentwood Hills is really sympathetic to wood as a living thing – they hand-stain lengths of wood to accentuate the natural movement of the grain and its pattern. They also work to very strict self-imposed manufacturing standards and have won many certificates for their practices and protocols, including their impact on the environment and air quality conditions. Amazing!
Hardwood #6 – Aquarius Luxury Vinyl Planks hard-surface floor
If you think a hardwood floor installation is expensive, requires hard work to maintain, and means years of walking on eggshells so that you don’t hurt it, think again! Aquarius emulates hardwood species in ever-versatile and luxurious vinyl, and they have many different styles and colors to choose from. Amazing, authentic-looking floors that are easy to look after – what could be an easier option?
