WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CARPET
This is a brief introduction to the four basic fibers that are used to manufacture carpets today. Each type has unique qualities and strengths. We are happy to assist you in selecting the ideal carpet for your home.
Although some carpets are made of blended materials, most are made of one of the following four fibers:
NYLON CARPET FIBERS
Nylon also has great color flexibility and uniformity, and many nylon yarn systems are exceptionally soft. Though not inherently stain resistant, most carpets made with nylon feature a stain-resist carpet treatment for protection against household spills and stains.
POLYESTER (PET) CARPET FIBERS
POLYPROPYLENE CARPET FIBERS
Polypropylene is normally used in loop pile construction in which there is less need for resiliency because it is not as strong as other fibers.
PTT (TRIEXTA POLYESTER) CARPET FIBERS
