Can You Choose a Carpet that is Both Beautiful & Durable?

 

Flooring can add beauty and style to your home. From beautiful, natural hardwood to soft luxurious carpet, a floor provides the backdrop for the rest of your room. You floor also gets a lot of wear and tear. Pets, guests, family, kids – your carpet literally gets walked all over every day. Choosing a floor that can take the abuse is important in having the beautiful backdrop that lets your home shine. When you’re choosing a floor, arm yourself with this information and you won’t be disappointed with the beautiful floors you’ll have for many years to come.

 


Carpet is great for bedrooms and living spaces, carpet is soft and warm underfoot. It comes in more colours so you’re bound to find the perfect hue. There are many types of carpet – some are better for high traffic areas and some offer unbelievable soft luxury. Choosing the right one depends on your space and your lifestyle.

 

Beautiful & Durable Carpet Fibers - Consider the type of fibre your carpet is made from.

 

NYLON CARPETS

 

Durable, versatile, wear-resistant and easy to clean, nylon is a great fibre choice for all areas of the home. Nylon is also soft to the touch and some new nylon yarns can be exceptionally soft. Nylon is not inherently stain-resistant, however, most nylon carpets are treated to protect against spills and stains.

 

 

POLYESTER CARPETS

 

Exceptionally soft, polyester also has natural stain resistant qualities. Polyester is not as resilient as nylon but thanks to advancements in yarn processing, polyester carpets now perform much better than older polyester carpets.

 

POLYPROPYLENE (OLEFIN) CARPETS

 

Polypropylene, while not as resilient as nylon or polyester will not absorb water making it more stain and fade resistant. Polypropylene is usually found in loop pile carpets where the lack of resiliency is not an issue.

 

 

 WOOL CARPETS

 

For a truly natural fibre option, wool carpets offer many of the great features of man-made fibres. It is hypoallergenic, stain-resistant and even flame retardant. Wool carpets tend to be more expensive than other carpets with man-made fibres.

 

Best Carpet for High Traffic Areas - Consider Carpet Textures 

 

BERBER CARPETS

 

Berber is a looped carpet tufted with thick yarn. It often has random specks of colour in contrast to a base hue. It is great for any areas that must endure lots of traffic, such and entryways and hallways. This floor covering has a rich, textured feel while maintaining an informal, casual look. 

 

LOOP CARPETS

 

Loop carpet has yarns that are looped and uncut on the carpet surface. The pile height can vary from low, tightly constructed to a more luxurious high-level pile. Loop carpet has strength and soil hiding capabilities. This style is ideal for heavy traffic areas. Loop carpet can take lots of abuse and is great for use in kids’ rooms and family rooms. The shadings in this carpet will resist traffic patterns while making colours appear deeper and richer. That means you won’t have to vacuum every time your carpet gets walked on.

 

Loop pile carpet hides traffic patterns and is super soft, making it a great fit for a kid's room or playroom.

 

CUT CARPETS

 

Cut carpet consists of yarns that are cut at the ends. The soft feel of cut carpet makes it a perfect choice for the most comfortable areas of your home — bedrooms, living rooms and family rooms. There are five basic styles of cut pile carpet: Velvet, Saxony, Frieze, Shag, and Cable, each provides a different look and texture. The primary difference among these styles is the amount of twist in the yarns that will ultimately influence the carpet’s durability. Plush saxonies are used in formal settings whereas textured plushes are less formal and help hide footprints and vacuum marks. There are a wide variety of looks and colours in cut style carpets. When you’re looking for durability, remember - the tighter the twist level, the better the carpet will perform.

 


 
CUT & LOOP CARPETS

 

As the name suggests, cut & loop carpet has a combination of high cut tufts and lower loops in a variety of sculptured patterns. Cut-loop carpets offer good performance but are slightly less durable than loop carpets. Tough and durable, cut & loop carpets can be used in any place that gets a lot of activity. These carpets are great at adding a dimension of texture that creates an enhanced plush profile and camouflages traffic patterning.

Express Employment Professionals allow clients to focus their efforts and time on being productive and doing what they do best – their business!

In their latest Saskatoon employment agency tip Hanif shares an article from SIA about workforce trends out pandemicExpress Employment Saskatoon Is Your Trusted Saskatoon Headhunters and Employment Agency.


NINE WORKFORCE TRENDS POST PANDEMIC

1. Contingent Workers

Expanded use of contingent workers is one of nine human resources trends that will impact the future of work following the Covid-19 pandemic, according to research from Gartner Inc.The research organization cited one of its surveys that found 32% of companies are replacing full-time employees with contingent workers as a cost-saving measure.
Using more contingent workers will provide greater workforce management flexibility, according to Gartner. 

“However, HR will also need to consider how performance management systems apply to contingent workers as well as questions around whether contingent workers will be eligible for the same benefits as their full-time peers.”


The other eight trends noted in the report are:


2. Increase in remote work. 

A Gartner analysis found 48% of employees will likely work remotely at least part of the time after Covid-19.


3. Expanded data collection.

Companies are increasing their passive tracking of workers. Already, 16% are tracking employees passively via methods such as virtual clocking in and out as well as tracking computer usage.


4. Employer as a social safety net. 

Employers will increase their involvement in the lives of the employees by increasing mental health support, expanding healthcare coverage and providing financial health support.


5. Separation of critical skills and roles. 

“Separating critical skills from critical roles shifts the focus to coaching employees to develop skills that potentially open multiple avenues for them, rather than focusing on preparing for a specific next role,” said Emily Rose McRae, director in the Gartner HR practice.


6. Humanization (and dehumanization) of workers.

“Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, some employees have formed more connected relationships, while others have moved into roles that are increasingly task oriented,” according to Gartner. “Understanding how to engage task workers in the team culture and creating a culture of inclusiveness is now even more important.”


7. Emergence of new top-tier employers. 

Employers must balance the concerns today with the long-term impact on their employer brands in upcoming years.

8. Shift from designing for efficiency to designing for resilience.

Gartner says 55% of organizational redesigns prior to the pandemic were focused on streamlining roles, supply chains and workflows to increase efficiency; however, this has led to fragile systems. After Covid-19, companies will focus more on resilience through activities such as training employees with cross-functional knowledge.


9. Increase in organization complexity. 

There will be an acceleration in M&A leading to larger companies and changes in operating models that will create challenges for HR leaders.

Trusted Saskatoon Mover Rays Moving & Storage Share 5 Tips for A Stress Free Move

In life, few events match the stress of moving. In this busy time of new beginnings and major changes, Rays Moving & Storage appreciated that their clients place a great deal of trust and responsibility with them.

Moving everything you own is a very personal experience and something that they do not take lightly... Moving can be an especially stressful time for families, whether it is across town or across the country. Having a true professional like Rays handling your possessions is the key to alleviating all of your worries! In their latest tip Rays share 5 tips for a dress free move. Rays are Trusted Saskatoon Movers & Storage Pros.


Move-in day excitement shouldn’t be overshadowed by moving day anxiety. Some smart preparation can go a long way towards making moving a little more uplifting (and a little less heavy lifting). Here are 5 things you can do leading up to your move to make for less stress on moving day.

Tip 1. Consider Your Move Date

Like apples and pumpkin spice lattes, there is a peak season for moving. Considering that the first and last weeks of the month can be particularly popular, a mid-week, mid-month move is your best bet.

Having access to the widest array of dates and times means that you’ll be able to plan your move when it’s most convenient for you. 

Tip 2. Have a Packing Plan

Less stuff equals less stress when it comes to packing. Take stock of what you actually want to take when you move. It is time for a purge?

This meticulous approach keeps you sane and helps you plan—knowing exactly what you’ll be moving and how unwieldy those items is key for deciding what kind of moving company you’ll need.

Tip 3. Do Your Research

Options can be overwhelming, but having the right information will make you feel confident that you’re hiring the right team for your move. When it comes to moving companies, they generally fall into 3 major categories: full-service, self-service, and specialized. How much you have to move, what kind of items you’re moving, and your budget will determine which category of moving company makes the most sense. In broad terms, a full-service moving company handles every part of the move—from packing to transporting to unloading at your final destination. A self-service company generally handles only the transportation part of the move (meaning that packing, unpacking, loading, and unloading the truck are up to you) and specialized moving companies are trained in proper techniques for moving unique items like antiques, art, appliances, or pianos.

Ensure that movers you select are properly licensed and insured professional movers like Rays.

4. Budget Accordingly

Expenses can add up quickly, especially when you’re moving long-distance, so keeping track of your budget is a crucial step in your pre-move plan. Your moving quote will be a powerful tool to help you budget.

5. Think About Moving Insurance

When you’ve taken care to pack only your most meaningful belongings, the last thing you want is to worry about them being damaged on their way to your destination. Moving insurance can give you peace of mind. You can ask the moving companies giving you quotes what expanded coverage they may offer, or, if your items are particularly valuable, you may want to consider carrying your own third-party moving insurance policy as well.

BRIDGE CITY DUCT CLEANING did an amazing job! I am new to the city and was not sure who to get... I am very happy that I lucked out in getting such a great company in my home to help me figure out my dust issue! I did not need the full meal deal of everything being cleaned at this time and they were honest about that! 

Honesty goes a long way! They could’ve just charged me and done three hours worth of work and I would’ve been none the wiser! They took pictures of my vents/registers and showed me that they were much cleaner than I thought they were! 

They found some treasures from the previous owners in my ductwork and they were happy to remove those for me ( toys and debris).  Dave and Darren were Professional, polite, hard-working, honest, explained everything down to the last detail, patiently answered all of my questions LOL I like that they laid down a mat to walk on, their equipment was up-to-date and powerful!
