More than half of carpeting sold today is made of nylon. It features great durability, is resilient, hides soil well and can be easily cleaned. Polyester fibers represent some of the most beautiful carpets available and are incredibly fade resistant, as well as stain resistant.
The fact is, no fiber is “perfect”. There will definitely be one to suit your needs better than others will. So, be prepared to discuss your needs with one of the carpet professionals at Carpets of Cape Cod.
Along with specific types of fiber, there are other options to choose from as well when you pick your carpet. For instance, if you know your floors are likely to take on more stains than most, you can order carpet that has stain protection built right into the fibers. This is a great choice for those who have pets or children, but still prefer carpeting to other flooring materials.
You can also order carpets that are hypoallergenic, directly from the manufacturer. For allergy sufferers, this is a wonderful option. The carpet traps allergens that are often the cause of symptoms that make carpeting a last resort.
