wood or lino is better than carpet

Wood or lino > carpet.

this is because of several reasons:

1) wood or lino does not require a vacuum cleaner to clean. not only does this mean less electricity use and is thus better for the environment but it also means that you don't have to invest in an expensive vacuum cleaner and use your money elsewhere.
2) wood or lino gives you a bruise if you skid along it whereas carpet gives you a flesh wound which will hurt in the shower
3) wood or lino does not stain from food etc
4) wood or lino looks more modern
5) wood or lino does not have risk of ticks or fleas
6) wood or lino doesn't catch dust etc and trigger allergic reactions
7) if you want carpet because it's more comfortable to walk on or something you can purchase a rug. there is no such thing as a lino or wooden rug. if you have wood or lino floors you also have the option of purchasing a carpet rug but not the other way around!
8) wood or lino is easy to mop and clean. you need to purchase a carpet cleaner or hire a professional to wash your carpet.
9) wood or lino will not get dust tan lines over the years (you'll know what I mean if you have a carpet floor and have had a sofa sitting on it for a long time. when you move the sofa you see a 'dust tan line' where the carpet that was covered by the sofa is lighter than the carpet that wasn't.
10) wood or lino does not dent when you put something heavy on it and leave an unattractive mark for the next person using your room
11) wood or lino is less expensive to install

For these above reasons I don't see why anyone would want to have carpet floors in their house. In addition to being more practical and cheap, it is also better for the environment and our health. Of course there will be controversy over which is more aesthetically pleasing but the fact remains that in the other areas wood or lino flooring is a much better choice for your home as opposed to carpet.

And no, I'm not just saying this because I had to vacuum the whole house this morning, whatever gave you that idea?

On a side note, I have a flight tonight at 11pm to shanghai so I won't be around for a while. enjoy your lives without me haha~
