There are five different types of carpet on the market today. They are level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush. How do you know which one is best for you? The first thing you will need to know before you can answer that question is how you use the space where the carpet will go. If you’re spending a lot of time in the space on the floor with kids, you’ll want an especially soft carpet. If you are walking on the carpet often or it’s in a high traffic area, you will want to look for a stain-resistant, durable carpet. Take note of all your lifestyle factors and write them down, so you can decide on what features you need most.
Nylon is the most resistant out of all the fibers. It is resistant to insects, mold, mildew, and other chemicals. It’s easy to maintain, resists soiling and staining, and maintains its height.
Polyester is less expensive than nylon but features some of the same durability. It has a luxurious feel, is resistant to moisture, and is resistant to water-soluble stains.
Triexta is a newer fiber type and is inherently durable and stain-resistant.
Olefin/polypropylene fibers are colorfast, strong, mildew and moisture resistant, and easy to clean. It is suitable for high traffic areas.
Wool is a popular and natural fiber that comes from sheep. Homeowners love wool because not only it is a hypoallergenic option, but it is also easy to clean and maintain. The fibers are dense and help to trap dust and dirt so they can be easily vacuumed up instead of floating in your breathing zone.
Nothing adds comfort and luxury to your home like a soft, inviting carpet. However, many homeowners worry about how their new carpet will look after being lived on for a while – especially with pets and young children around. While no product is completely stain-proof, today’s technology is amazing. With many of our carpets, you can even clean up spills with just water. Some carpet fibers have inherent stain-fighting properties, such as polyester, triexta, and olefin. Others, like wool, have natural antibacterial and odor-fighting qualities. Additionally, carpet manufacturers can also add a stain treatment. This may coat the surface or be built into the fibers themselves so that it doesn’t wear off. On top of stain resistance, you can choose certain carpet designs that help hide blemishes, such as multi-tonal colors, darker shades, and particular textures.
With today’s advances in technology, carpets can be installed in almost any room. It’s not recommended for areas with high moisture levels like bathrooms or kitchens, but carpet can be installed in any living room, office, playroom, and bedroom. In addition, carpet that is naturally stain-resistant or waterproof can be installed in hallways, stairways, and formal dining rooms. No matter the area of your home that you are looking to install carpet, there is an option with features out there for you.
