Carpet features are an important consideration when it comes to replacing old carpet or buying new carpet altogether. Resistance to everyday wear and use has become important to most homeowners. There are stain-resistant options made for homes with active families as well as new waterproof options that take the worry away when you are hosting events or have rambunctious pets and children.We can help you find the perfect carpet for your home that balances both your needs and the needs of your home. Here are the most common types of carpet fibers:
Nylon features many different benefits like quality performance and longevity. Although more expensive, nylon is the toughest fiber on the market and is usually stain treated for protection.
Polyester is another type of synthetic fiber that is cost effective, but has a reputation for not being as durable as nylon. New technology is changing the chemistry of polyester, however, making it more durable.
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 highly fade-resistant, even in more sunny spaces.
Wool is one of the natural fibers that can be used to make carpet and is considered a green product. Wool is also hypoallergenic 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 in order to be stain-resistant. Many embrace triexta as an equal option to nylon in terms of performance.
More and more homeowners are specifically looking for pet-friendly flooring. Pet-friendly carpeting is for more than just for your pets though. They are easy to clean, stain-resistant, and can be installed anywhere in your home. Most pet-friendly carpets make cleaning up easier and faster, and we also offer waterproof carpet options that can protect your subfloor from urine and moisture.
Typically, carpet flooring is installed in places around your home where you spend time relaxing. For example, bedrooms and living rooms are the most common areas of the home where you’ll find carpet. Most carpets today can be installed in busy spaces like hallways, stairs, and even your children’s playrooms! Additionally we offer commercial carpet, carpet tiles, and even custom-made stair runners and area rugs to complete the look of your home or business.
