Nylon fibers and more

Nylon has been the go-to carpet fiber for decades. This durable floor covering stands up well to heavy furniture as well as heavy foot traffic. Cleaning the carpet helps fibers that have been flattened to bounce back. Most nylon carpet is protected with a stain treatment. Because nylon is absorbent, the treatment keeps spills from penetrating the fibers and staining the carpet. Best of all, this floor covering retains its original look years after installation. Triexta is a newer synthetic fiber that is just as durable as nylon. It is also inherently stain-resistant. Traditional wool carpets are top-notch and something to consider for bedrooms.

Judging quality

To judge carpet quality and durability, consider more than the type of fiber. The twist is one of the best indicators of carpet quality. The number of times that fiber strands are twisted together will be noted on the label. A 6 TPI (turns per inch) means that strands are twisted 6 times. The density of the carpet pile, or how close fiber strands are packed together, is important. Keep in mind that good quality underlayment helps to cushion some of the impacts of foot traffic and, thus, reduce fiber wear.
