Considering the Somerset Country Collection?  

The Time-Honored Country Tradition 

The country look is one of the most time-honored decorating traditions in America. It is an American classic and the Somerset Country Collection has the perfect flooring to complete this look in any room of your home. The collection includes seven beautiful looks ranging from Forest Brown to Natural Walnut and is made up of Maple and Walnut, and White Oak. The natural variation that is found in each piece of wood ensures that your floor will be uniquely beautiful and authentic.

The Ageless Look of an Aged Floor 

The Somerset Country Collection consists of solid hardwood flooring in a variety of species, that features hand scraping and character markings for a timeworn appearance and texture that will add an authentic and unique look to your country d├ęcor. This is the perfect collection for anyone who is restoring an older country home and wants it to look as genuine as possible. The biggest benefit is that you get that aged look while having a brand new floor that is built to last and resistant to stains and warping.

Added Value 

A properly installed hardwood floor adds not only unique beauty to your home, but added value as well. Most homeowners find that the cost of purchasing and installing a Somerset Country Collection hardwood floor more than pays for itself with the increased resale value of the home. This added value is due in part to the fact that the flooring never needs to be replaced and also because of the beautiful look that the wood adds to the home. There are very few other design elements that add as much value to a home.

Environmentally Sound 

A purchase from the Somerset Country Collection is not only a good investment and an excellent decorating choice, but also an environmentally sound decision. Not only does Somerset employ its own forestry staff to ensure that more trees are planted than are cut down, but they also eliminate waste by using every part of each tree that is cut down. Wood and branches not suitable for making into floor planks are used to make wood pellets for fuel.

The Best Way to Care for Carpet

To extend the life of your new carpet you may want to invest some time in learning different cleaning techniques.  Cleaning the carpet usually doesn’t take a great deal of effort, but can really pay off in the long run if done correctly.  There are several steps you will need to take to make sure you are cleaning the carpet effectively all of which are valuable to maintaining the life of your carpet.

Carpet Care
Carpet Cleaning

A consumer should make a habit of vacuuming their carpet atleast once or twice per week.  It is important to vacuum to keep dust from collecting under the surface.   Once the dirt is pressed down into the carpet it will become harder to get out.  You should also make sure to set their vacuum to the right setting to prevent the carpet from being pulled and picked, and to also make it easier on you to push and pull the vacuum.

Next, a consumer should get a deep cleaning of their carpet done every 12-24 months.  By doing this you can extend the life of their carpet.  To deep clean the carpet you can either rent a steam machine at a local grocery or department store, but the consumer should have a good idea of how to properly clean the floor before beginning.  If you are going to buy a service from a local carpet cleaner they should research the services done by that particular business.  If not researched properly you may be left with the job incomplete such as wet, soggy carpet.

Lastly, if there is one thing I learned from my mother it’s to never let a stain sit on carpet. If a stain isn’t cleaned up immediately it can stain the carpet deeply and will be harder to clean later. It is best to blot the stain so that you can contain it to one area instead of spreading it around with scrubbing. The best first step to take is to soak up as much excess liquid as you can. After collecting the excess liquid on the stain, the next step would be to apply a cleaning solution to the stain. You can either have a purchased commercial product, follow the directions correctly, or you can have a homemade solution to clean up the stain, such as club soda. Finally, if the stain is just too stubborn to get out you may need to call a professional cleaner.
