Where do you start? Start with what kind of Fiber options you prefer.
Because the basic fibers used today all make excellent carpets depending on the usage, you really need to know the differences to help you make the best choice for you and your home. Here are important facts to know about the different fibers:
- Nylon is extremely versatile and resilient. Although not naturally stain-resistant, most nylon carpets feature stain-resistance treatments that protect against spills and stains. With one of our best carpets by Shaw, they employ a R2X process, which saturates the fiber tip to base, is patented and proven to give exceptional, unprecedented protection. Nylon carpets with proven R2X protection gives you great durability and stain protection.
- PET (polyester) is naturally stain resistant and fade resistant. It’s a little less durable than nylon but if you enjoy changing your carpets more frequently to give your home a new look, PET is a good choice.
- Polypropylene/olefin is the least expensive fiber and is naturally stain resistant. A great value, it is especially durable when used in a tight loop construction.
