Carpet choices

from Watkins Floor Covering

 
Carpet fiber is the most critical factor in the choice of carpet. Carpet fiber determines how long a carpet will last, how soft it is, the available colors, how easy it is to clean, and the price. You have to compare carpet by the fiber. Each has its unique characteristics.
Common fibers include:
  • Nylon
  • Polyester
  • Wool
  • Olefin
Nylon carpet should not be compared to polyester or any other fiber. Compare carpets that are similar. Narrow the selection to a carpet that fits your need, lifestyle, and budget. All fibers can be made to feel and look differently by modifying the manufacturing process. Some fibers are made to feel and look thicker by bulking them. Some strands of fiber feel and look softer when the fibers are thinned.
 
 
 

Nylon carpet fiber

Nylon is a generic designation for a synthetic polymer family. It is the most resilient and durable carpet fiber. Resilience is defined as being able to return to an original position or form after being stretched, compressed, or bent. Nyon's resistance keeps carpet looking new longer than other carpet fibers. It is an expensive carpet fiber. Only wool is more expensive. Nylon carpet is worth the money when longevity and heavy foot traffic are concerns. Other benefits of nylon carpet are its stain resistance, ease of cleaning, and ability to be color dyed.

Polyester carpet fiber

Polyester offers color clarity and exceptional softness. It is naturally fade and stain resistant. Polyester carpet is not as durable and strong as nylon, but still performs well. Polyester carpet is an excellent choice for settings with low to medium traffic, like bedrooms.

Wool carpet fiber

Wool is a naturally resilient fiber, but is not as resilient as nylon. Wool carpet can last for decades when properly maintained. Maintenance does require a bit more work to care for than synthetic fibers. Because it carries a slight risk of shrinkage, wool carpet needs to be cleaned professionally. Wool carpet is soil and flame resistant. The highly absorbent fiber in wool carpet acts as a natural humidifier. It absorbs excess moisture in the air and releases it when the air is dry.

Olefin carpet fiber

Olefin does not absorb moisture. It is solution dyed, which means that the color is built into the fiber when it is formed. Color in olefin carpet does not fade when exposed to atmospheric contaminants, bleaches, and sunlight.
