Types of fibers used in carpets include nylon, polyester, triexta, olefin/polypropylene, and wool.
Nylon is the most common and popular carpet fiber option because of its durability. This fiber is long lasting and can be treated to be stain resistant.
Polyester is less expensive than nylon but features some of the same durability. The quality of polyester continues to improve and is even comparable to nylon.
Triexta is a newer fiber type, and is inherently durable and stain resistant.
Olefin/polypropylene fibers are perfect for decorative rugs and carpets. This fiber makes for great decorative rugs.
Wool is a popular and natural fiber that comes from sheep. Homeowners love wool because not only it is a hypoallergenic option, but it is also easy to clean and maintain. 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.
