When you are selecting your LA carpeting for your home, it is important to know the four basic fiber options available so that you can make the best choice possible for your space. Our carpet experts will help you choose the fiber that best suits your needs and stylistic preferences.
Nylon carpet is made with a soft and strong fiber that maintains its texture. It is very resilient, fade and stain resistant, and is easily cleaned. Nylon carpets work well in any room in your home, especially in areas where stains may occur.
Polypropylene (Olefin fibers) carpeting is highly resistant to moisture, mildew, fading, stains and chemical cleaning agents. Polypropylene carpets are fade resistant because during the fiber production the color is then added and not applied later. Its resilience makes this type of carpet a great option for dens, playrooms and kitchens.
Polyester (P.E.T.) carpets are made from recycled P.E.T. products such as plastic soda bottles. As a recycled product, it is a very cost-efficient and environmentally friendly option. Polyester is also a naturally stain, fade and abrasion resistant Los Angeles carpeting option. This carpet fiber maintains its color clarity, color retention and strength. Polyester carpets require minimal maintenance and clean easily.
Wool is a natural, soft and luxurious type of carpet fiber. It is also an environmentally friendly carpeting option that comes from a renewable resource. Wool carpets are tough, resilient and will bounce back to their original state. Dust, dirt, and oil-based stains come out easily because wool naturally releases the soil rather than absorbing it. Its resilience and durability makes it perform well in rooms with high traffic.
Advanced Generation Nylons are also called “branded fibers” because they have a specific brand name. Buying branded opposed to unbranded carpet makes a huge difference. Branded fibers are manufactured to a strict set of standards and offer better performance, stain, static, and crush resistance. The fibers have been specially treated with stain and soil resistant resins that were applied during the dyeing application. American Carpet Inc. offers branded fibers including Premier Stainmaster®, Softique® and Infinity Nylon Carpet Fiber®.
