The quality of the carpeting determines its lifespan. Other factors include the room’s function, who will be occupying that space, and how often it is used. The flooring specialists at Hessler Floor Covering can help you find the best carpet flooring for your home. We have a carpet store in Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, and Naples, FL.
The majority of homeowners choose nylon carpeting because it is so durable. Triexta is a newer synthetic fiber that also wears well. Wool carpeting is more costly than synthetic fibers, often placed in guest or master bedrooms. The brightly-colored polyester is also an excellent choice for low-traffic spaces. Water-tolerant olefin is perfect for basements and other moisture-prone areas.
Carpet flooring is made by looping fibers onto a backing. Short loop pile carpeting is most durable because dirt remains close to the surface where it is easily removed. Next, carpet loops are cut to create additional styles. Finally, the fibers are twisted or turned to increase durability. Look for the TPI on the label. A high-quality carpet has a 5.0 or 6.0 TPI or turns per inch.
Choosing premium quality padding is essential to go with your new carpeting. Without it, the carpet flooring quickly becomes worn. Many types of padding are available, and usually, the manufacturer will specify which type should be used with your carpeting of choice. Padding also offers thermal and sound installation as well as comfort underfoot.
Some carpet flooring brands are designed specifically for pet owners, and these styles are perfect for active households, too. Even pet accidents don't damage this highly stain-resistant carpeting. Commercial carpeting is another option to consider if you need an extra-tough carpet. Aesthetically pleasing styles are appropriate for residential use.
