    28% of people hate hardwood floors? That’s a result I find surprising. I might expect an even higher number than that for laminate, but not for hardwood.

    RE: Kary L. Krismer @ 4 – The volatile organic compounds emitted by carpeting can be intoxicating. Plus, dirt floor was not a choice.

    I love hardwood floors. Wall-to-wall carpet is nothing but a disgusting, filth-infested, stinky dirt trap.

    21% prob prefer carpet. For those people, I would suggest next time you go to your friends place with carpet is to kneel down face towards the carpet and take a long whiff. I dare you to even try tasting it. It is amazing how much dirt gets track / trapped in carpet. How often to people steam clean (it really is just hot water, none of the cleaners on the market actually “steam”) their carpets? Annually at best?

    Hardwood floors, hmmm.. they smell and taste so fine.
