Why Choose Carpet?

Here is a breakdown in the type of carpet fibers so you have an idea of what might be the best choice for your space:

Nylon It is a very durable fiber with excellent performance characteristics. Its strengths include good resiliency, it holds its shape well, it is can be treated with stain resistant, it can hide soiling well, and good wear resistance. It is the strongest fiber, making it an excellent choice for the heavy traffic of an active household or commercial space. It's also the most durable of the synthetics. It is soil and mildew resistant and resilient. The only downside to Nylon is it is prone to static; however this can be off sided with an anti-static treatment.

Polyester fiber produces some of the most beautiful color tones available. It also is extremely fade resistant and provides excellent resistance to stains. Polyester offers a wide selection of textures and colors. It is non-allergenic, sheds moisture and resists moths and mildew at a lower cost than wool or nylon. While it's susceptible to pilling, shedding and oil-based stains, it otherwise cleans fairly easily and is enhanced by stain treatments. Some polyester fibers are recycled from plastic pop bottles, so if environmental concerns are important to you, ask for polyester fibers that have been reclaimed from post consumer use products.

Wool This traditional favorite offers a deep, rich look and feel. Wool remains the premier fiber in carpet construction. It has excellent resilience and durability, but is more expensive often twice as much per yard as nylon. Other synthetic fibers have done an excellent job of duplicating the characteristics of wool, although none can duplicate all of these characteristics. Wool cleans especially well, provides beautiful colors, and has good resiliency, but special care should be used in cleaning wool carpet.

Caring for your carpet is important to ensure its longevity and maintain its appearance. Here are some tips for carpet care:

Vacuum regularly: Regular vacuuming is important to remove dirt and dust that can accumulate in your carpet fibers. Vacuum at least once a week, and more often in high traffic areas. 

Clean up spills immediately: Accidents happen, but it's important to clean up spills and stains as soon as possible to prevent them from setting in your carpet. Blot the spill with a clean cloth or paper towel, and avoid rubbing or scrubbing the area.

Use the right cleaning products: When it comes to cleaning your carpet, it's important to use the right products. Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, as they can damage your carpet fibers. Instead, use a mild detergent or a carpet cleaner designed for your type of carpet.

Avoid walking on your carpet with shoes: Shoes can track dirt and debris onto your carpet, so it's best to remove your shoes before walking on your carpet. If you have pets, make sure to clean their paws before they come inside.

Rotate your furniture: Heavy furniture can leave indentations in your carpet, so it's a good idea to rotate your furniture every so often to prevent this. You can also use furniture coasters to distribute the weight of your furniture more evenly.

Hire a professional cleaner: While regular vacuuming and spot cleaning can help keep your carpet looking good, it's also a good idea to have your carpet professionally cleaned every 12-18 months. A professional cleaner can remove dirt and stains that you may not be able to get out yourself.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your carpet stays clean and in good condition for years to come.
