Why Summer Is Perfect For New Carpet

Posted on: 22 October 2021

Summertime is often associated with the pool, hot and long days, and being outside, but that is not the entire scope of the summer experience. A lot of people spend most of their time inside during summer, as the heat is quite intolerable for many Australians. When inside, carpet is one of the most popular flooring materials, and while masonry and tiled floors are up there too, a fresh carpet installation can make most people go giddy with joy. Here are a few reasons why a carpet installation is best done in summer.

Allergies Come Out Of The Depths

While wintertime is generally the safest period of the year for those with allergies because most plants are dead or dying, summertime is the exact opposite. Pollen counts and everything else from grass to pets become more active and run around, engraining bacteria and allergies into your home. If you hate the feeling of sore throats and runny noses at the start of summer, then now is the best time to do something about it and make sure that your carpet installation is finished by the time you start smelling the roses bloom. 

Update The Old And Make The New Last Longer

If your carpet is old and shrunken or feels rougher underfoot, then you know it is time to upgrade your flooring now. Newer models last for longer and look much cleaner when installed, which means now, when most people will be barefoot during summer, is a great time to have your carpet installed and settled down by the time winter rolls around. If you are someone who does not normally mind people wearing shoes on your carpet, then making sure they won't do this during the transition because it's summer and not many people wear thick shoes is a happy coincidence that sets your carpet off on the right track.

Get It Installed Fast

Hotter days generally mean all sorts of projects get done quicker for a few reasons which also affect carpet installation:

  • New stock is just arriving in that is preparing for the rise in sales
  • Workers want to leave as quickly as possible because of the heat, and they work more efficiently
  • The days are longer, so it is easier to convince some people to work overtime to get the job done quicker
