Retain the thought that price of carpets are measured per square yards. There are many types of carpet such as Cut Pile, Saxony, Velvet/Plush, Cut and Loop Pile, Level Loop Pile, Berber, or Multi-level Loop Pile but when looking for the best carpets to install in your home you must bear in mind the types of fiber.
Nylon is the most popular carpet installed in homes and is in 90% of residential spaces. Nylons popularity is because of its resistance to moisture, static, mildew, fading, and staining. Nylon is best for family homes with younger children and continual accidents involving the staining of carpets. Nylon maintains color better than most fibers and is less likely to unravel due to the spun fibers (short lengths of fibers spun together).

Olefin fiber is colorfast (dyed in colors that aren’t washed out easily) and this is handy when water damage occurs due to the water resistant fiber. Olefin is also moisture resistant, strong material, and can be easily cleaned with bleach in most situations. Olefin is best indoors or outdoors and is often used as sport turfs because of its durability and fortitude to outdoor conditions.

Wool is the most costly carpet yet the most luxurious choice of carpet. Wool has a high upkeep but compensates with the soft touch, strong fibers, stain resistance, and ability to maintain fiber height throughout its time. Wool is the prime choice if cigarette burns or cigar burns are a problem along with any other flame issues because wool will not catch flame or melt as nylon does melt. The disadvantage to wool is that the fibers fade in sunlight and there is low resistance to chemicals which makes stain removal after water damage problematic. Wool is also a desirable home for moths, bees, and other bugs along with mildew.
