Four steps to choosing the best carpet fiber

Four steps to choosing the best carpet fiber

With its stylish colors and exciting textures, nylon, triexta, or polyester carpeting easily becomes a striking addition to any home space.

Shop at First American Carpet & Floors in Woodbridge, and Stafford, Virginia, to find trendy, high-quality styles.

1. Match the fiber to the space's foot traffic.

Nylon, the most popular fiber, is durable; thus, it works well in family rooms and other high-activity areas.

While nylon is known for its abrasion resistance, long-lasting triexta is well-regarded for its superior stain resistance. Polyester, or PET, is strong and soft.

2. Examine the ColorMax Collection when you are carpet comparison shopping.

Mohawk's intense color saturation in ColorMax carpeting is inspired by the color variation in natural materials like wood and stone.

With its new way of dyeing fibers, ColorMax technology offers high-definition earth-tone colorations that are clear, vivid, and rich.

3. Compare carpet samples made with a triexta/PET polyester blend.

Since different fiber types accept color in unique ways, mixing two fibers provides some unique colorations.
A triexta/PET polyester blend displays tone-on-tone shading or two hues within a similar color family that adds depth to the color. The carpet, then, has more visual texture.

4. If you live in a pet-friendly home, choose a pet-friendly carpet.

Pet owners are well-served by brands designed to suit their needs. These highly stain-resistant, easy-to-clean brands are often made of triexta.

In addition, Mohawk SmartStrand carpeting features an All Pet Protection & Warranty that covers 'all pets, all accidents, all the time.'
