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 is one of the most popular synthetic options because 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?

Our flooring experts are here to help you find the perfect carpet. We can help you narrow down your flooring search by showing you products that match both your needs and the needs of your home. Carpets come in stain resistant and wear resistant options for active homes. Different carpet types will function differently in your home, so be sure to speak with one of our flooring professionals to choose the right carpet for your home.

There are also waterproof carpet options like our Carpet One exclusive Tigressa H2O. These are the perfect carpets for homes with pets and children. They are not just easy to clean, but they also protect your subfloors from permanent water damage.

Our flooring professionals can help you choose the right type of carpet for your home. We carry five types of carpet: level loop, patterned, textured frieze, and plush options.

Pet-Friendly Carpet

If you have pets in your home, we know it is sometimes hard to clean up after them right away. 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 other 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.
