North Vancouver Property Managers have realized clients are asking for floors without carpets more and more. Carpets are expensive and have to be replaced as a general rule, almost every three years because of wear and tear. Carpet fabrics can also absorb smells, stains and are a pet owners nightmare. Wall to wall carpets are definitely not as popular as they used to be with patterned scatter rugs covering a beautiful waxed wood floor the new way to go. They can brighten up a room and supply added warmth during the fall and winter months. Who doesn’t love the look of natural hardwood floors whether it’s oak, pine or cedar. When selling your home, ask anybody looking for a home to rent in North Vancouver which floor covering they prefer and you will be astonished at the high percentage of natural wood lovers out there. Theses floors can also increase the value of your home in the long run paying for themselves. When taking calls from potential home renters one of the first questions we are asked is, “Does the home have natural flooring?” Who has the time to spend on the upkeep of expensive carpeting with a short life span? Renting a Northshore property can be a challenge with more and more people flocking to this mountainous mecca but finding a Northshore home with hardwood floors is easy. The bare floors are always a selling feature whether you are an owner or renter and much easier to clean than carpets. What about allergies to fabrics and the dust that breed in thick carpeting. For me, the deal breaker has always been, its a lot easier to mop up red wine from a wood floor than from a thick carpet pile and for that reason alone my house is carpet free.
