Carpet flooring comes in thousands of smart and stunning options, with something for everyone included. It can be tough navigating the carpet world and its endless array of colors, styles, and textures. With a little help from the expert team at Westland Carpet One, we trust you’ll soon be well on your way to a soft-surface floor of both style and substance.
We feature a wide range of residential and commercial carpet flooring products, so if you’ve been putting off that carpet installation, we’re here to help. Here are some facts to help you along your journey.
Your carpet’s fibers, or carpet pile, are the true essence of your soft-surface floor. Carpet pile determines the way your rug feels and functions. It can be either synthetic or natural in origin. Some of the more commonly used products are made from synthetic piles, like polyester and nylon, and natural piles, like wool. These can all be incorporated into level loop, frieze, patterns, textured, or plush weaves.
Nylon is prized for its softness as well as its impressive capabilities. Nylon is made to last and is typically treated for maximum stain and fade resistance, making it one of the most popular carpet types today. Polyester has a texture like nylon but is significantly more affordable. While polyester was once considered inferior in terms of wear capabilities, recent innovations are changing that and today there are polyester carpets that resist stains, wear, and tear.
Triexta is a synthetic that’s lauded for its impressive stain-resistance capabilities. It doesn’t need to be treated in order to do so, as it’s manufactured with inherent durability. Olefin/polypropylene is a synthetic fiber typically used to create eye-popping patterns. Made for incredible visuals, with less emphasis on durability, olefin rugs are a nice option for formal dining and living rooms, where foot traffic is more infrequent and style reigns supreme. Wool is a naturally sourced, sustainable fiber that comes from organic sheep fleece. It is renowned for its colors, as it naturally captures and holds dye. Wool is a great choice for allergy sufferers, as it naturally filters out allergens. It also resists mold and mildew.
Carpet flooring is intended to be used in nearly any room, except for kitchens and bathrooms. A stain-resistant, moisture-proof product is best for spaces housing pets or kids. There are options to meet any everyday challenge. To best meet your needs, we recommend that your first step is to take a close inventory of your space, activity levels, and sun exposure.
