What's your carpet type?

With so many colors and textures to choose from, there's no reason to put off buying new carpet. Maybe you want to capture trendy shades of blue to make a statement, from timeless indigo and navy to of-the-moment marine tones. Carpeting made with reclaimed, recycled, and natural materials will add distinct texture and an earthy vibe. Pattern carpet will create a unique look with bold shapes, chevrons, and linear and geometric prints.

Did we mention that carpeting adds warmth and comfort to your home by increasing the sound absorption and insulation, ensuring your floor is warm in winter and cool in summer?

There are many carpet styles and colors available and we invite you to browse our catalog HERE or visit Hessler Floor Covering to view them in person.

How to choose the right carpet for your home

When selecting carpet, you probably already know how many options there are to choose from. However, they all boil down to two basic styles: Cut pile and loop pile.

Loop pile consists of continuous loops that go through the backing, with no loose ends sticking up on either side. Cut pile, on the other hand, has been cut so that all the ends stick up through the backing, towards your ceiling.

The importance of carpet fiber

The only natural fiber available in carpet is wool, and most people would prefer it over other materials. Unfortunately, wool is so expensive, that it simply is not a common fiber in most locations. While it has many advantages, its disadvantages can also spell disaster. If you do not have the time to properly maintain wool carpet, it can wear out, mildew shrink and need replacing, all very quickly.

Polypropylene, also known is olefin, is a more popular choice. Its resistance to moisture makes it popular, especially since it can be used in damper areas such as the basement. You can even place olefin in some outdoor locations with little worry about its lifespan. It is naturally resistant to stains, which makes it easy to clean, even though it’s one of the cheapest materials in carpeting.

Polyester is another popular carpet fiber and an eco-sensible one at that. It can be made from recycled drink containers, is stain resistant, affordable and can be placed just about anywhere.

Nylon fiber, also very popular with homeowners, is very durable and crush resistant. It can easily mimic many of the traits of wool carpeting and is just as beautiful. This makes it one of the more expensive carpet fibers on the market. As carpet fibers go, you are most likely to find this one in just about any carpet store, and Hessler Floor Covering is no exception. We proudly carry all these fibers and more.

Expect some questions about your carpet needs

In attempting to find the best carpet to fit your needs, you can expect your salesperson to ask a few questions:

    • What room are you looking to carpet?
    • Does this room receive high or low traffic?
    • Is the room formal or informal?
    • What are your expectations of this carpeting?
    • How would you like the underfoot feeling to be?
    • What budget do you have to work with?
    • Do you want high or low maintenance carpet?

    You can expect some, all or additional questions to be asked when you visit our showrooms located in Fort Myers, Naples and Punta Gorda, FL. Allow us to help you choose the perfect carpet.
