When you choose your new carpet, you want to think of things such as color, pattern, design, texture, and performance. These characteristics are in part defined by pile style, fiber type, and overall carpet design. There are carpets made today for all kinds of lifestyles, including carpets that are made to be waterproof or stain-resistant to combat pet accidents and children’s messes. The five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.
The types of fiber used in your carpet will impact its performance and texture. Synthetic fibers are great for durability and softness, while natural fibers like wool are eco-friendly and crush-resistant. Fibers are twisted together into piles, which can be cut, loop, or cut and loop. There are also high, medium, and low pile carpets. Here is a summary of the types of carpet fibers you’ll most commonly encounter:
Nylon is considered the strongest fiber option. While more expensive, this synthetic is popular because of its durability and long-lasting qualities.
Polyester is less expensive than nylon but features a soft texture and inherent stain fighting abilities. Manufacturing technology continues to improve the quality and strength of polyester.
Triexta is a newer fiber type, and is inherently durable. These fibers are becoming a more popular option because unlike nylon, they are already resistant to staining and do not need to be treated.
Olefin/polypropylene fibers are perfect for decorative rugs and carpets. We suggest putting these types of rugs and carpets in places around your home that are not heavily trafficked.
Wool is a popular and natural fiber that comes from sheep. Homeowners love wool because it is hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, and crush-resistant. The fibers are dense and help to trap dust and dirt so it can be easily vacuumed up instead of floating in your breathing zone.

Look for performance features like stain-resistance and odor-resistance. We even have waterproof carpets, which have an industrial backing that blocks pet accidents and spills from escaping to the carpet pad. You should also try to find a carpet design that disguises pet fur between cleanings and won’t snag claws.
