Whether you’re in need of new carpeting or you’re just looking to update the look of your home, buying new carpet requires research. Here are some things to consider before you make your carpet selection.
Wool carpet offers a broader range of details, colors and designs than a traditional tufted carpet. It has good stain resistance and has flame retardant characteristics.
Nylon is comparable to wool, but on average costs less. It comes in a variety of styles and construction and has excellent soil resistance.
Oleyfin/Polypropylene is water and stain resistant, which makes it a good choice for indoor/outdoor carpeting.
Polyester is ideal for playrooms and bedrooms because it is soil resistant and easy to care for.
Different carpet piles offer different characteristics and purposes, so take this into consideration when making your selection.
