Types of Carpet Fibers

Nylon is one of the most popular carpet fiber choices because of its high-performance and durability. It must be treated to become stain resistant.

Polyester is making waves in the carpet industry due to its cost and improving quality. While polyester is not as high performing as nylon, technology is making it better every day. Polyester is also softer than nylon, making it ideal for bedrooms and living rooms.

Olefin/Polypropylene is an excellent choice for patterned carpets. It does not absorb liquids easily, but it does tend to crush more easily than other carpets.

Triexta is a new carpet material that it has not been around long enough to support its claims of durability. However, it is stain-resistant and seems to handle traffic well.

Wool is a natural fiber that is hypoallergenic and extra soft. Wool carpet can even keep homes warm in the winter as added insulation.
