One of the great things about carpet is that there's something for everyone. And that includes fibers!

Fiber is one of the most important decisions you'll make in your quest for new carpeting. It has everything to do with appearance, performance, and longevity.

Which is better: natural or synthetic?

We hear that all the time. But both are great choices. Ultimately, the choice will come down to your preference. 

For instance, natural fibers might appeal to someone especially concerned about the environment. Being natural, they're also chemical-free.

Synthetics comprise about 95% of all rug purchases; many feel this carpet installation is more practical because of price and stain resistance.

Nylon: the ultimate in strength

Nylon carpet is an excellent choice if you want something that can handle heavy foot traffic, kids, and pets. It has superior resiliency and can "bounce back" after compression, like furniture legs.

It has good stain resistance, especially when a protectant is used. There are also hypoallergenic abilities to repel mold and mildew.

Polyester: superior stain resistance

This is a hydrophobic fiber, meaning it won’t absorb. When a protectant is used, the stain resistance goes through the roof!

When shopping for carpet in Stuart, FL. It's less expensive but also a little less resilient than nylon.

Polyester is more appropriate for moderately busy rooms for families without kids or pets.

Triexta: fairly new to the market, already sought after

This fiber has stain resistance built right into the fiber! It’s also super strong.

This is the fiber used in Mohawk's SmartStrand collection. As you may know, this was extensively tested for durability and stain resistance.
