Carpet fiber choices
Wool Carpet – Wool carpeting is made from natural materials and is woven. There are a wide range of designs available.. Wool is also stain resistant with prompt cleaning in the event of a spill, and it is also inherently flame-resistant.
Nylon Carpet – Nylon is a synthetic material that feels very close to wool, and it typically more affordable than wool. Nylon is also soil resistant, holds its color well, and is very durable. This makes it very suitable for use in any area of the home.
Polypropylene Carpet – This is a synthetic material that is both water and stain resistant. This makes it a good choice for both indoor and outdoor applications. Polypropylene is also very colorfast, which makes it great for rooms that get a lot of light or traffic. It is a great material if you are expecting traffic from outside or from a pool. Because it is not as durable as nylon, we suggest using low-pile carpeting to increase its life expectancy.
Polyester Carpet – Polyester is a soft material that comes in many different styles, textures, and piles. It is a very affordable choice, and it takes color extremely well. The one downfall though, is that isn’t as durable as some other materials, so it’s best not to use it in a high traffic area. Polyester is soil resistant and is very easy to maintain, which makes it ideal for children’s bedrooms and playrooms.
How do I keep my carpet clean?
Here are some basic tips for keeping your new carpeting clean as long as possible.
- Vacuum often – this will keep dirt from grinding in to the carpet fibers
- Clean spills and spots as quickly as possible – Prevent spills from soaking in to carpet. When cleaning spills pat the stain with a damp cloth, don’t rub the spot. Rubbing it helps drive the stain in to the fibers, while patting it soaks up the stain.
- Have your carpeting professionally deep clean every 12-18 months.
- Use door mats at every entryway. This will help leave some of the dirt at the door.
- Try not to wear shoes on the carpeting to prevent the spread of dirt.
