When choosing the perfect carpet flooring, you’re likely to wonder whether synthetic or natural fibers are best. Both offer unique benefits.
Today, we'll share some facts to help you decide better for your use. Read along for more information.

Synthetic fibers


Nylon is the most popular synthetic fiber in carpet flooring. It makes up most of the carpeting sold in the United States.

Other synthetic fibers include polyester, triexta, and olefin, also known as polypropylene. Each synthetic option offers different characteristics and benefits.

Natural fibers


The most common and widely used natural fiber is wool. This material offers stunning color but must be installed in areas free from dampness and spills.
Wool is a far more expensive carpet flooring choice and can hold more than ten times its weight in water retention. But, again, we have more details for your specific fiber questions.

When carpet fibers matter


We recommend synthetic fibers if you need a durable carpet flooring choice. For example, nylon is perfect for high-traffic areas, while polyester gives you more stain protection.

You can also ask about fibers with built-in stain and odor protection. Again, the added durability is well worth it for families with high-traffic homes.
