Many homeowners in Chattanooga who have basements have at least once face the flooding problem. It’s an unpleasant experience, but a common one. And if you’ve ever dealt with cleaning your basement after a flood, you probably had to throw out your carpet. If you still want a soft surface in your basement, carpet tiles are ideal.
In accordance with many polls, taking care of moisture and vapor in a basement is a hard task. Without talking about a noticeable water leak right in the basement, water normally gets in through the concrete slab. In contrast to common belief, a basement floor should let moisture evaporate into the room instead of trapping it down. That’s why it is strongly not recommended to use such materials such as vinyl sheets, linoleum, rubber floors and even various sealants. They do nothing to prevent the ground water from infiltrating the slab.
Carpet Remnants provides different kinds of carpet tiles that are optimal for basements. They were designed from scratch and match modern standards – the tiles interlock together and allow air to flow under the basement floor. We strongly believe, that a basement floor covering doesn’t have to be dull to be functional. One of the main trends today is to combine 2 or 3 colors to make checkerboard or repeat some contemporary designs. Not only it makes the basement an additional room in your house, but handles high-traffic if it is adjacent to the garage, for example.
We recommend to choose carpet tiles made of artificial materials, like polyester or nylon, as they can more easily resist water. These properties can also minimize the possibility for mold to grow. In case of emergency such as flood, you can easily take the carpet tiles off and dry fast. In addition, you can replace just what you need instead of the whole carpet or even basement flooring. A good option to save money!
