Hardwood floors are generally easier to clean than carpeted floors, particularly on a weekly basis. On the other hand, they are more expensive to install than carpet. Hardwood floors can also increase the value of your home in the eyes of buyers. In fact, some buyers will only consider a house that has hardwood flooring.

But, you’re not going to get the soft comfort, especially while walking barefoot at home,that you can enjoy with carpeted floors. It comes down to a matter of price,taste and lifestyle. Which flooring type you go with will affect your home’s appearance, cleanliness and again, value.

Carpeted Flooring Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Foot protection is a real plus with carpeted floors. Sink your feet and toes into a plush shag carpet and you may not want to put your shoes back on. Carpeted floors are especially welcomed if you have sensitive, tired or injured feet.
  • Carpet insulates the rooms of your house,lowering noise levels. This benefit is most realized if you're walking on the second or third floor of your house. Walking on carpet keeps your family on lower levels of your home from hearing your feet echo across the floor.
  • Go barefoot on carpeted floors and you probably won’t get a splinter.
  • Young children will have padding to crawl on. Toddlers who are learning to walk will also have padding when they tumble to the floor.
  • Cold air won’t nip as hard at your feet during cold months.

Cons:

  • Despite your best cleaning efforts, after several months, your carpet may get stained. You could scrub the stains on your hands and knees and not get all of the spots out.
  • Carpet fibers hold dirt and allergens. Deep cleaners and regular vacuuming are needed to keep fibers free of allergens.
  • Let snags develop in your carpet and you could see a run stretch several feet across the floor.
  • You’ll have to eventually replace your carpet to keep your home in stop condition.

Pros and Cons of Going with Hardwood Floors

Pros:

  • A broom and a mop can keep hardwood floors clean for months.
  • If hardwood floor tiles get damaged, you can sand or refinish them instead of replacing them, saving money.
  • Allergens and dirt have less places to hide.
  • Should you track mud in the house, you can clean it up in seconds with a wet rag.

Cons:

  • Similar to tile floors, hardwood floors can buckle, especially if it gets humid.
  • Polish is required to keep hardwood floors looking good over time. This may not be so bad if you don’t mind operating a buffing machine a couple of times a year. As a tip, only buff floors that are not made with refinished wood.
  • Termites can get in hardwood floors.

Both carpeted and hardwood floors get spots on them. Your floors can get spots from water, grease and other harsh cleaners. To reduce flooring damage, consider using environmentally friendly cleaners. Also, protect carpet and hardwood floors from too much sun exposure, as too much sun exposure can take the shine out of carpet and hardwood coloring.

If you recently bought or sold a house and need to move in the near future, there is no reason to put off packing. However, procrastination sometimes can get the best of people and lead individuals to wait until the final possible moment to pack.

Packing items at the last minute can be stressful. As such, it is important to do everything possible to avoid the risk of packing procrastination.

Lucky for you, we're here to help you prep for your upcoming move and ensure all of your belongings are packed and ready to go for moving day.

Now, let's take a look at three tips that you can use to overcome packing procrastination.

1. Plan Ahead As Much As Possible

Although it may be several weeks or months before you need to leave your current address, it never hurts to start planning for moving day early. That way, you can identify any potential moving day hurdles and eliminate these obstacles as quickly as possible.

To plan ahead for moving day, take a close look at your belongings and determine which items you intend to keep. If you have excess belongings, you should sell, donate or dispose of these items as soon as you can.

In addition, you may want to reach out to local moving companies. If you hire a moving company today, you'll be able to receive expert support when you finally transport your belongings to your new address.

2. Eliminate Distractions

Let's face it – life is busy, particularly for those who are moving to a new city or town in the foreseeable future. Therefore, it pays to eliminate distractions that may hinder your packing efforts.

For example, if you spend several hours each day browsing the web, you may want to use some of this time for packing. You can even reward yourself with a few minutes of exploring the web for every hour that you pack.

Remember, you need to pack your belongings to ensure you can vacate your current address by a specific date. If you remove distractions along the way, you can increase the likelihood of packing all of your belongings in time for moving day.

3. Reach Out to Family Members and Friends for Assistance

Contact family members and friends for assistance as you prep for moving day – you'll be glad you did. These loved ones may be able to lend a helping hand with packing. Plus, family members and friends likely will hold you accountable for your actions and ensure you can stay on track with your packing goals.

Lastly, if you require additional help with your upcoming move, you may want to reach out to a real estate agent. This housing market professional can put you in touch with the best moving companies in your area to help you streamline the moving process.

Remove the risk of packing procrastination – use the aforementioned tips, and you should have no trouble preparing for moving day.
