An ideal Carpet for a home with pets.

With so many carpet designs and colours available it can be very confusing. That is where we at Archway Carpets come into our own. Having years of product knowledge and a passion to help our customers reach their own#fashionforyourfloor

Asking questions about who and how a room is used. Means you will have the best possible carpet for your requirements. There are carpet designs that are not suitable for a home with pets. So to have pets as happy as one of lovely customers cats enjoying the new carpets instead of their pet beds. 

When a home has pets mainly cats or dogs. A twist is the carpet you need. We can look at a wool based twist to provide comfort and style.  A twist is easy to hoover with pet hairs staying on the surface. Also the natural oils found in the wool add cleaning stains.

Networking for better business

Well we all know that people buy people and in business this is true. Here at Archway Carpets we believe that networking with other Suffolk businesses mean better service for our customers. Whether we do business with "back office" suppliers or "front of house" companies that will improve your customer experience. Maybe it is neither and just a company we can refer to our customers.

At the end of July Darrell our Sales Director went to Coastal Connections, a evening networking group. Yes he did benefit from a meal from the team at The Meare Tearooms and Emmerdale Farm where the sausages were fantastic and all from Suffolk based Animals. The freshly carved ham was a beautiful colour and tasty.

Exciting time for Woodbridge.

For many years two areas of Woodbridge have been awaiting re-development. This year work has started on the Whisstocks boat yard and Nunn's Mill areas of the town.

The new developments will create areas for work, relaxation and living. Along with these areas a new home for the Woodbridge Museum and a fantastic new "Long Shed" 

The "Long Shed" will be home to a unique project to house the building of actual replica of the Sutton Hoo Long Boat.

These projects and buildings are due for completion in 2017. 

Recycling is the Green way to give you that comfy feel at home!?

So you have decided on that latest #fashionforyourfloor but what underlay to use?

Well there are so many on the market that this can be very confusing for you. So once again we here to help cut that confusion.  Firstly we can discount all those underfloor heating underlays (unless you have underfloor heating, of course! ;) - blog on that soon!

What room is the underlay being used in? This is very important. If it is a low traffic use room ie a bedroom then the most ideal underlay is a recycled foam underlay. Made using reclaimed sponges and foam etc. This gives you a light, soft, delicate and warm feel under foot.

Now for those high traffic areas. We are talking about the Hall, Lounge and main through rooms. At Archway Carpets we use a rubber crumb underlay. Again this is recycled with 82% of the product made from reclaimed car tyres. So for each 1sqmtr of this underlay the rubber from 1 car tyre is used. Just think how many tyres are reused throughout your home when you use this underlay. 

The benefits of this underlay are a firm base for your carpet. Meaning a prolonged life for your new flooring. A firm under foot feeling gives the assured sense of quality to you and your visitors.
