Here are some things to consider before you commit.
Carpet fibers, also called carpet pile. are inherently different, so it’s always wise to gain an excellent working knowledge of piles before beginning to shop.
Carpet pile can be synthetic or natural: these can, in turn, be woven into construction types like level loop, textured, cut loop, and frieze.
Among the most popular fiber types are wool, nylon, polyester, and olefin.
Nylon is one of the most popular synthetic fibers compared to other options like polyester. Nylon features many different benefits like top quality performance, and that is looks better for longer. An important thing to know about nylon is that it needs to be treated and dye sites need to be filled and the fiber needs to be coated in a stain resistant treatment so stains will not settle into the fiber.
Polyester is another type of synthetic fiber that costs less than nylon but may not be as durable as other options. New technology is changing the chemistry of polyester, however, making it more durable than what homeowners have become used to.
Olefin/polypropylene fibers are perfect for residential areas in low traffic spaces like dining rooms and formal living rooms. These types of carpets feature more decorative patterns and are design to be looked at rather than be lived on.
Wool is one of the natural fibers that can be used to make carpet and can be considered a green product. Wool is considered a hypoallergenic option because it traps allergens and stops them from floating into the breathing zone.
Triexta is a cousin to polyester. It is inherently stain-resistant, and unlike nylon fibers it does not need to be treated to be stain resistant. Many embrace triexta as equal option to nylon.
We don’t recommend carpet flooring for your kitchen or bathroom, but soft-surface floors can certainly be enjoyed throughout the rest of the home. Choose a dense, sturdy synthetic carpet for stairways; a stain-resistant and waterproof product for spaces where kids and pets are at play. These are just a few examples.
