Choosing the right carpet fiber can have one of the most significant impacts on your overall flooring experience for the life of your flooring, so it pays to consider each option carefully. We want you to find the perfect floor covering to match your specific lifestyle, so read on to find out more about your options.

Carpet makes a big difference when it’s right


The right carpeting fiber can transform your space into everything you want it to be, while a poor fiber choice can do the exact opposite. For your convenience, here are just a few comparisons in the fibers you’ll be considering.

  • Nylon performs very well in a variety of situations and extremely versatile. It offers stain and fade resistance and can offer even more benefits, based on the brand you choose.

  • Polyester offers a softer touch than nylon, but it’s also naturally fade and stain-resistant. They perform well but don’t quite stand up to the durability you’ll find in nylon.

  • Olefin, also known as polypropylene, features brilliant colors, thanks to solution dying, that never fades, even with direct sunlight and bleach.

  • Triexta is somewhat similar to polyester, but it offers the strength of nylon. It will never absorb water-based spills as a hydrophobic fiber, so stain resistance is a sought-after component of these fibers.
