What you should know about carpet

The fact that you’ve decided on carpet for your new floor covering tells us a lot, already, about your desire for a comfortable home with all the benefits you need. It’s only natural that at the same time, you’re looking for that floor covering to last as long as possible. The best way to make that happen is to choose the perfect fiber for your home’s specific needs.

Nylon and polyester are great choices for the busy home, where children and pets are often found. Both of these fibers offer excellent durability with colors that don’t readily fade, and an amount of resistance to stains and everyday wear and tear. Homes with less traffic, or spaces that are less traveled, can be covered with something more plush and elegant. Your flooring specialist will be able to help you find the perfect fiber for your specific needs.

Stain resistance has always been one of the most important things for anyone who considers carpet for their homes. The good news is, you can order this material with that stain resistance built right into the fibers themselves. Stains will not be able to soak into your floors, which means stains will not set, and will be much easier to clean up. What’s more, it won’t wear off after a few professional cleanings. You’ll have a floor covering that looks like new for many years to come when you shop any of our amazing carpet flooring selections.

Carpet fibers

Pattern: Pattern carpet features islands of cut yarn contrast with loops to form a sculptured pattern. Excellent for hiding footprints.
  • Distinctive look
  • Hides footprints

Berber (loop):
Nylon Berbers are long-lasting and durable, so they hold up to heavy traffic and long-term use. Berbers woven from Olefin fibers are less durable, but lower in cost. So they’re better suited to low-traffic areas, or for renovating on a budget. Both Nylon and Olefin fibers are stain-resistant when treated.
  • Nylon: long-lasting and highly durable
  • Olefin: Highly economical

Yarns are twisted, then cut at uneven lengths that creates a rougher surface texture. As a result, textured carpets are less prone to show footprints, making textured carpets a great choice for high-traffic areas.
  • High-traffic
  • Hides footprints

Saxony (Plush): Saxony (or Plush) is made up of densely packed, level fibers that create smooth texture with a formal appearance. They also feel softer underfoot. Typically shows footprints and vacuum cleaner marks.
