Warm and Durable with Many Style Options
Nylon carpet is a popular choice for homes in the greater Westfield and Plainfield, New Jersey areas. It is arguably the most used carpet material in residential homes today thanks to its ability to naturally resist staining, wear, and mildew.
Nylon carpet comes in two general types: staple and bulk continuous filament. Staple carpet is made from short strands of yarn that are twisted together to create a tuft. This style tends to shed for a few days after installation, but it also has a softer look and feel. Bulk continuous filament is made of long, continuous strands of yarn that are bulked and twisted together.
Benefits of Nylon Carpeting
Our customers in the greater Westfield, NJ area find that nylon carpet offers many benefits. The fibers are very durable and hold a twist well so you can expect to enjoy your carpet for many years. It is a great choice for areas with high foot traffic such as hallways, living rooms, and family rooms. If you live in a house with small children or have another reason to anticipate spills, you may want to consider nylon carpet that has been specially treated to prevent stains. This makes cleanup especially easy because it traps the liquid on top of the carpet fibers, before it settles into the base of your carpet. In general, nylon carpeting does well to resist stains and damage is extremely easy to clean if a spill does occur.
You’re in full control in terms of design options if you choose a nylon carpet. Some choices to consider include the carpet pile type, grade, and color.
- Carpet Pile. Nylon carpet comes in both loop and cut pile constructions. Both offer unique benefits and drawbacks, so be sure to talk to one of our product experts to determine the best fit for your home.
- Grade. Carpet grades vary to fit different needs. For example, less frequented rooms can get away with a lower grade than carpet used in high-traffic areas.
- Colors. Nylon carpets retain color well and are available in numerous colors and designs. From a standard beige to an eclectic blue, you’ll find an option that fits any design you may have in mind.
