When you think of carpeting, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a beautifully carpeted room inside a home. As it turns out, however, carpeting can also be used outdoors. Indoor-outdoor carpet is designed to withstand the elements while at the same time providing comfort and style.
Adding this type of carpeting to your patio, deck, or other outdoor space can enhance your enjoyment of the area. It can also help add style and sophistication to the space, making it a place where you love to spend time with friends, barbecuing, chitchatting, or simply relaxing.
Tough Enough For Outdoor Use
What makes indoor-outdoor carpet unique is that it is capable of withstanding exposure to just about any type of weather. That means that it can hold up under the hot rays of the summer sun without fading. It can also survive rainstorms and snowstorms, coming out completely unscathed thanks to its resilient synthetic fibers.
Durable Carpet Fibers
Most indoor-outdoor carpeting is made from durable fibers such as olefin and polypropylene. These synthetic fibers are capable of enduring exposure to the weather. They won't fade when they are exposed to the sun. In many cases, they are even tough enough to survive having chemicals spilled on them.
No Need For A Carpet Pad
One thing that makes indoor-outdoor carpeting unique is that it doesn't require a carpet pad. This can keep the cost of installation down. Of course, if you are installing the carpeting indoors, you can add padding if you want. A carpet pad can increase the softness of the carpet underfoot, creating a more comfortable surface to walk on.
Easy To Care For
This type of carpeting is relatively easy to care for and can last for a long time as long as it is properly maintained. Like any type of carpeting, you should clean up spills right away to prevent staining. You should also consider protecting the carpet from the feet of the furniture pieces that are placed on top of it. All in all, however, you generally don't have to worry too much about upkeep when it comes to indoor-outdoor carpet.
This strong, versatile carpeting can be used inside your home or in outdoor spaces. Because it is designed to resist fading, it can be placed in the sun. It also is capable of withstanding exposure to moisture. In essence, it is tough enough to survive whatever mother nature throws at it. Best of all, it doesn't require a lot of upkeep and maintenance.
