Carpet flooring provides comfort underfoot

Carpet floors are warm, comfortable to walk on, and appropriate for all households, even those that include pets. Some brands are designed to make cleaning easy for pet owners. Carpet is a favorite floor covering for basements as well as bedrooms and family rooms. Carpet Source, a carpet retailer in Scottsdale, Arizona, can take care of all of your flooring needs. We opened our doors in 1979, so we boast many happy customers.

Nylon and other fibers

While nylon is the perennial favorite, newer triexta is quickly becoming a favored carpet fiber. Triexta is inherently stain-resistant, and nylon receives stain-resistant treatments in the factory. The fibers are durable, and each one resists matting and crushing. Olefin, or polypropylene, is another good synthetic fiber chosen by homeowners because it resists mold and mildew. Acrylic has the look and feel of wool, and polyester has a luxurious feel. Wool, more costly than synthetic fibers, is most often installed in the home's low traffic areas.

Loop and cut pile

Carpeting is manufactured by sewing loops of fiber onto a backing, and this loop pile can be cut to create several styles. Pile describes the length of fiber strands as well as the density of the fibers. A cut pile is softer than a loop pile. The durability of cut pile styles is partly determined by turns per inch, or TPI, of fiber strands. Fibers are turned or twisted to prevent unraveling. A 6.0 TPI is desirable. Look for a brand that has a low loop pile if you want the most durable style available.

Pet-friendly brand

Durable and stain-resistant Mohawk SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet features All Pet Protection & Warranty. According to Mohawk, the carpet protection system covers ‘all pets, all accidents, all the time.’ Since there is 0% moisture absorption, this innovative carpeting does not retain odors. Fibers are softer than traditional carpet fibers and, because of the Nanoloc spill and soil shield, easier to clean. Contemporary styles are available in up to 60 colors.
