Floors to Go Offers Carpet Choices to Complement Any Interior Design Plus Many New Benefits Homeowners Will Love
Carpet has been a popular flooring material for homeowners for centuries. However, today’s new carpets offer benefits that weren’t available just two or three decades ago. Carpeting reduces the sounds from foot traffic and conversations, and thereby makes any room’s environment more peaceful. In addition, new carpet is available in a far larger choice of colors, textures and patterns that will enhance any interior design scheme. The latest carpets from leading manufacturers also deliver effective, built-in resistance to dirt; better stain resistance and easier cleaning requirements than products of the ‘60s and ‘70s.
Many modern carpets will easily handle high foot traffic and can also survive anything that active families with young children and pets can subject them to. Visit our Floors to Go showroom in Sarasota, FL and look over the many available types of carpet that we carry from major manufacturers. This will help you to determine which type of carpet will be best suited to your home’s rooms.
Many new carpets strongly resist all stains. Most will also stand up well to household cleaning products and more. For example, nylon carpets are well known for long wear in areas of heavy foot traffic and resist problems such as ‘pilling’ very well.
Fiber – Used for both synthetic and natural carpets, where several synthetic materials have been added.
Wool – Used for more expensive carpets well known for their softness and luxury. They may be somewhat less resilient than synthetics, and are usually considerably more expensive too.
Sisal – Used for carpets made from plant fiber that delivers a textured look. Sisal is considered an eco-friendly ‘green’ product.
Nylon –Nylon is the most durable and resilient carpet fiber that makes good floor covering for all levels of foot traffic.
Polyester – Polyester carpet feels soft, but is also not as resilient as nylon. It resists stains, and is a good choice for low-traffic household areas.
Olefin – Used for carpet that resists both moisture and mildew, and is excellent for both inside and outdoor locations. Excellent in hot, humid climates.
Acrylic – Acrylic is often used in making level-loop or plush carpet. It offers the luxurious feel and look of 100% wool for a much lower price.
