Carpet in Oakland, CA

Comfy, cozy carpet is always stylish, but it can sometimes be challenging to find products suitable for your lifestyle. We’re still on the search for smart, sensible carpet solutions that will work well within your budget and needs. At Dick’s Carpet One Floor & Home of Oakland, CA, we offer up beautiful carpet and area rug choices for all types of residential and commercial projects.


Carpet used to be frowned upon for families with small children, but times have changed. Today, plenty of moisture-resistant, stain-resistant, and resilient carpet flooring products won’t disappoint in the style department.



Carpet Types

For the best possible carpet fit, now is the time to take careful inventory of your home and its regular activities. Carpet fibers, or pile, are made from many different materials, and other materials perform differently. Synthetic fibers such as nylon are made for easy endurance and serious softness, for example. Our carpet flooring experts can help you find the best types of pile based on your lifestyle and décor preferences.


Nylon is a popular carpet fiber choice. The benefits of nylon include top quality performance and long-lasting looks. These fibers can be treated to be stain resistant and are made to last a long time in your home. Polyester is a less expensive alternative to nylon. New technology is changing the chemistry of polyester. Now it is comparable to the durability of nylon, while still being budget friendly.


Triexta is inherently stain resistant, and unlike nylon fibers it does not need to be treated to be stain resistant. These types of fibers are newer and much more stain resistant than other synthetic options. Olefin/polypropylene fibers make for amazing-patterned carpets. These carpets should be installed in low traffic areas around your home, such as formal living rooms and formal dining rooms. Wool is a natural, eco-friendly, sustainable carpet fiber. Wool is considered a hypoallergenic option because it traps allergens and stops them from floating into the breathing zone. Wool carpets also help to make your home more energy efficient and help to regulate the temperature in your space.


Carpet Installation

Carpet generally is off-limits for the bathroom or kitchen but can be installed in almost any other interior setting if chosen with care. Stain-resistant, sturdier options fare best in the hallway, stairs, and family room. Waterproof carpet should be considered if you have a new puppy. On the other hand, luxury weaves like plush can be the ultimate master bedroom indulgence.


So, you’ve purchased your perfect carpet product, and are about to schedule an installation- but what happens in between? Now isn’t the time, as it turns out, to sit on your laurels. Preparing for your install is an important step in the overall process: one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Before your old carpet is removed, you’ll want to vacuum it thoroughly to remove all traces of underlying dirt and debris. With contractors soon to be roaming about your home, it’s a great idea to arrange a trail to the intended work area, using tarps or drop cloths to protect your home against dirty boots. Although there are sometimes instances where the installation crew will assist with furniture-moving, you’ll want to find out their policy before installation day! Regardless, it’s your responsibility to remove fragile items in your room, including potted plants, small decorative items, and other decorative touches.
