Expert Advice - Basics of Carpet Fibers

Join our very own Jim Aaron, VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, for some inside information on the different types of carpet fibers.

Types of Carpet Fibers

Carpets are made up of fibers that are twisted into piles, and these fibers can be sourced from natural or synthetic materials. Fibers play an important role in carpet and can influence design, durability, and stain resistance. Synthetic fibers include nylon, polyester, olefin, and triexta. Nylon happens to be one of the most popular synthetic carpet fibers. It is durable, and can be treated to be stain resistant. We also offer carpets made with natural fibers, including wool. Wool comes from sheep and is a sustainable fiber, which makes it an eco-friendly option. Wool is also naturally hypoallergenic, resistant to staining, and can also resist show from wear.

What Are the Different Types of Carpet?

Knowing the different types of carpet available can help you make the right choice when it comes to choosing a new carpet for your home. Carpets today are made to be stain-resistant and wear-resistant, so they can last longer and stand up to everyday mishaps.

We carry five types of carpet: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush options. Ask our flooring experts which carpet type would be ideal for your needs and lifestyle.

Pet-Friendly Carpet

We offer pet friendly carpet for your home. There is no reason to sacrifice comfort for performance when you can have both. We offer carpeting that is made with pet owners in mind. They feature the ultimate stain resistance and can easily be cleaned. Our H2O™ technology found in some of our exclusive carpet lines features a waterproof backing that stops pet accidents from reaching your subfloor. This prevents the growth of mold, mildew, and odor causing bacteria.

Where Can Carpet Be Installed?

Carpets are a great choice to install in bedrooms, dens, or you can even install them in living rooms as well. Our stain, wear and fade resistant carpets can be installed in places around your home that experience a lot of traffic like stairs, hallways, and even children’s playrooms and basements.
