You probably have some fond memories from childhood where carpet flooring
is a central component. Just as it always has been, carpet is the only soft surface floor covering and offers benefits unique to its makeup. The soft underfoot feel and the gorgeous colors and prints that are so widely available make it perfect for living rooms and bedrooms. But now, more than ever before, this material offers more modern benefits that can change things in your home.
Your choice of fiber means a lot. Since each one has its characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses, it’s best to compare your requirements with what the particular fiber offers. For instance, nylon, which offers excellent stain and crush resistance, and stand up well under heavy amounts of traffic, is perfect for a busy home. Wool, on the other hand, should be placed in lesser-traveled spaces.
The newest benefit built into some brand’s fibers is an amazing resistance to stains. So, unlike the days when you had to be careful to place carpet in spaces where there was no chance of staining, you can now put this flooring practically anywhere. You’ll also find fibers that are more durable than most and some that offer protection against allergens. In carpet, there’s truly something for everyone.
