All about carpet and durability

All about carpet and durability

Carpeting has different durability and stain resistance levels. So whether you have a small, quiet family or a large active one with kids and pets, there's something for everyone.

It’s important to qualify your own needs, style and budget. Describe them in detail with the flooring professional.

Fiber: everything to do with performance

The five most common are: nylon, polyester, olefin (polypropylene), triexta, and wool. Understand the pros and cons of each. This will help you determine the right one for you.

You'll find many kid-and-pet-friendly fibers in our carpet store.

Style isn’t about looks only

Some styles are better for specific installations than others. How do you plan to use the room in which it's to be installed?

Generally, a low pile rug is easier to keep clean and durable. In addition, these are soft and fashionable. Also, pay attention to the rug's other features, such as texture and color.

Meanwhile, keep in mind

1. Needs are highly individual. The one that works for one may not necessarily work for another.

2. Buy the best floor covering your wallet will allow.

3. Weight alone doesn't determine quality. Instead, look for density which refers to how closely the fibers are tufted.

That number is on the label and should read between 3000-5000. Higher numbers are better.

Twist, associated with longer fibers, refers to how many times a yard is turned around per inch. A good number is four and above.
