Indoor outdoor carpeting has many areas that it can be used in both indoors and out as the title suggests. Patios and small outdoor breakfast areas are enhanced greatly with the indoor outdoor carpet. You can go as rustic or as elegant as you want with this type of carpet believe it or not. The low pile makes this carpet easy to clean and less likely to harbor allergens. In basements the carpet is great because it gives added cushioning to a floor that is normally hard as cement (pun intended) because it is cement. Padding underneath the carpet can make this floor a real delight for kids to play on. Their knees are protected as they move around on the floor learning to walk or playing with their toys.
Turf and grass outdoor carpets are designed as one would imagine to simulate grass. Like marine carpeting this type is also highly resistant to the elements. One of the drawbacks to turf and grass carpeting is the fact that it is generally only available in squares which can create a large amount of seeming when compared to marine carpeting. This does however allow for the easy replacement of certain areas of carpeting affected by wear and tear as it is much more convenient to replace a few squares versus replacing an entire area. Turf and grass carpeting generally comes with a sticky backing that can simply be peeled away prior to applying the square to the designated area. Because it is designed to look like grass and its color availability is limited this type may not be the best choice for use in the home but is well suited for strictly outdoor use or where color is not an issue.
Questions which should be asked with right answers given before you do outdoor carpeting are: Is the carpet UV and stain resistant; this is necessary especially when your carpet will be subjected to heavy traffic and serious sunlight exposure. Another question which should be considered is what carpet density is required for the area where the carpet is going to be used as this will confirm the toughness of the carpet and its comfort capability.With respect to moisture mentioned earlier there is also the need to confirm that the outdoor carpeting which you are making use of has moisture resistant marine grade backing. This will determine its quality as far as moisture resistance is concerned.
Far from being limited to the unsightly green outdoor carpet that is found on boat decks docks and poolsides outdoor carpeting can be more stylish than one might think and useful in a number of settings. One of the most important things to consider in choosing outdoor carpeting is how much exposure to the elements might be involved. Although many brands may be advertised as being "outdoor" some of these may not actually be manufactured to withstand heavy exposure to rain snow or direct sunlight. Marine carpet is manufactured using a rubber backing and an olefin layer on top that makes it extremely resistant to both water and stains. Olefin also called polypropylene is a synthetic material that is known for its quick drying properties and its ability to resist dirt mold and fading.
