Choosing a carpet means picking the one that truly suits your family’s needs the best. One way to do that is by selecting a fiber that offers all the characteristics and benefits you need most.

For instance, if you have a busy, active family, you’ll need a durable fiber that withstands crushing and stains. But if you have little traffic, you can opt for something less rugged and more dedicated to color and beauty.

But which fibers are best for each situation? Well, that’s what we’re going to discuss now.

Carpet fibers matter

It’s a choice that must be made after careful deliberation and consultation. Which fibers are best for your home?

Nylon and polyester offer fantastic options, including excellent stain and crush resistance, and is one of the most commonly purchased floor coverings on the market today. They are used in the manufacture of many brands that also add built-in stain protection, so you’re especially covered when it comes to lots of traffic, children and pets included.

Wool is the only natural flooring material, offering an eco-friendly, recyclable product you’ll have great peace of mind in installing in a variety of spaces. However, you’ll have to be careful to make sure it’s not installed anywhere near moisture, dampness, or where spills can frequently occur, as the fiber is not created for such situations.

Olefin is a common choice for those who want the elegance and hominess of carpet but need a little extra protection for areas such as patios or decks. This flooring is extremely stain resistant, bleach resistant, and water-resistant, with a high tolerance to heavy traffic.
