For instance, nylon is one of the most popular fibers for this particular flooring. It stands up well to traffic, holds a twist well and has a long life span, especially when properly cared for. Polyester is also popular, with even more stain resistance. Wool, on the other hand, does not hold up well under heavy traffic, but it’s one of the most beautiful fibers.
If stains are a worry for you, you’ll be happy to find that many carpets now come with stain protection built right into the carpet fibers. This can even be specially ordered for pet stains and odors. However, even if you don’t have pets or small children, it could also be an excellent form of peace of mind.
Another protection that can be built right in is hypoallergenic fibers. Carpet has long been thought to be an aggravating factor in allergies. That no longer has to be the case, as this new technology takes away the worry associated with your flooring.
