Understanding Carpet Fibers

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in News From Us

In the carpet industry the used fibers are nylon, polypropylene, acrylic, polyester, wool and cotton.  These materials make up more than 99% of the fiber used by U.S. carpet industry.  Each of these carpet fibers have its own unique properties, some fibers have low resiliency and only should be manufactured in high-density loop pile constructions to limit crushing. Other fibers have the tendency to absorb oily soils and other oil-based compounds and should be carefully considered before installing in areas subject to these contaminants. There is no one perfect fiber or carpet, it is a matter of finding a carpet that is most suitable for your home. Use this chart from the Carpet Buyers Handbook to help you compare your options and selecting the perfect carpet for your home.
