You recently called your rug repair service in Las Vegas to have your Oriental rug all fixed up. You are glad you did because it looks great. But there seems to be a problem, you aren’t quite sure just where to place your rug. You see, you have moved since you last had a home for the Oriental rug, and the place you live in right now has wall-to-wall carpeting. With all of that shag carpeting, there is no place for your rug. You don’t know what to do.

Well, we have a good idea; you could have hardwood floors installed. The look of hardwood flooring is fantastic and will make it easy to find a new home for your newly-repaired Oriental rug. And if you are on the fence about ripping out that shag carpet and having hardwood floors installed, here are a few reasons sure to sway you.

Hardwood is Beautiful

No other flooring, especially your shag carpet, matches the beauty and quality of hardwood flooring. Whether you choose a darker hardwood floor or a glossy, maple flooring, it will transform the look of any room in which it is installed.

Hardwood floors are well-matched with the beautiful things in your home including furniture, window coverings and your recently repaired Oriental rug.

Increases the Value of Your Home

hardwood flooring in a home is an added cost that will pay some pretty fine dividends. When you install hardwoods floors, not only do you get to enjoy their beauty, you also get to enjoy the return on your investment when you decide to sell your home.

You see, installing hardwood floors is an investment and the value of your flooring will come back to you.

Hardwood Floors are Easy to Care For

What did you do this last weekend? If you have wall-to-wall carpeting, we are willing to bet you spent at least an hour running the vacuum over it, if not longer. That’s too bad, because if you had hardwood flooring, you may or may not have spent any time cleaning the floors because they are so easy to maintain.

All hardwood floors require are the occasional sweeping and mopping. Spot cleaning can be done to maintain a swell looking hardwood floor.

Though it varies greatly due to any number of factors that total area covered and height of shag, installing hardwood floors can save you as many as 20 man hours a month in labor.


If you are suffering from a runny nose, itchy eyes and are always trying to stifle a sneeze, your carpet is likely to blame. You see, your carpet is harboring any number of allergens at this very moment. Allergens that are released into the air when you vacuum or when you step on them.

Lucky for you, hardwood floors don’t trap and harbor allergens so you don’t have to worry about sneezing and wiping your nose constantly when you have guests over.

You Want a Good Home for Your Rug

If you get hardwood floors, you will have the perfect home for your now-repaired Oriental rug. And if you have the urge, you can buy another rug as there are plenty of places it can be placed.
