What you really need to know about carpet

When it comes right down to it, you’ve decided that carpet is what you want on your floors, and that nothing else will do. If this sounds like you, we applaud your decision. This is one of the nicest floor coverings, especially if you have children in the home. The luxurious underfoot feel makes a great place for toddler floor time, and you can’t beat the soundproofing that comes as a result.

However, unless you have already done every bit of research, there might still be options you’ll need to think about before nailing down a product. At Carpet Warehouse, we want our customers to be completely satisfied with their choice of floor coverings. So we will go out of our way to make sure you know everything you need to about carpet. If you are in or around the El Paso area, we invite you to visit us at our showroom, located in El Paso, TX. One of our flooring professionals will be standing by to answer all your questions, and help you find the perfect floor covering to fit your needs.


Carpet facts worth knowing

Did you know that different carpet fibers are specific to certain needs? Wool, for instance, is an exceptionally elegant natural fiber that is on the highest end of the price spectrum. It takes color like no other fiber, but should never come into contact with water. It has a tendency to mold, and holds up to ten times its own weight in water.

Olefin, on the other hand, is so resistant to water and stains that many people use it in the basement and foyers, because it looks great and serves the purpose they need it to serve. Nylon is incredibly popular, as well as being strong, soft and perfect for high traffic areas of your home. Polyester has many of the same attributes as nylon, though it is a little easier on the budget.

In addition to fibers, you’ll want to consider if you want or need extra stain protection, or other extras that can be added either during manufacturing, or after installation. If you have small children or pets and expect that you’ll be experiencing a lot of spills and stains, we suggest a carpet that has stain resistance built right in to the fiber. In the same way, you can also purchase carpet that has extra protection against pet stains and odor.
