Samples of carpeting made from nylon fiberHomeowners in the greater Brookhaven area who have carpet flooring enjoy its soft feel, warmth, and classic design it adds to their space. At Floor Coverings International Brookhaven, when it comes to choosing the right carpet material for your home, our team wants you to know about the best materials for your needs. When it comes to durability, cost, and design, nylon carpet is hard to beat. As the most popular carpet material available today, we’d like to share the great features nylon carpeting has to offer.

Durability

We love nylon carpet for its durability. Its fibers are very resilient and it holds up well to everyday wear — even in areas that see high amounts of foot traffic. With proper care, including regular vacuuming and an annual steam cleaning, nylon carpets often outlast other materials. This makes it a great material for areas such as hallways and stairs, where less durable fibers tend to flatten with use.

Versatility

Nylon is arguably the most versatile carpet fiber available, and it can be used to make a variety of different carpet types, including durable berber or plush saxony varieties. It can even be used to make textured and patterned carpet designs, including cut and loop pile styles. Compared to other synthetic fibers, nylon is one of the more expensive options available, however its long life will help offset the cost of the initial investment.

Other Considerations

  • Nylon fibers are very absorbent and can stain easier than fibers such as wool if not properly protected with a stain-resistant treatment.
    • Solution-dyed nylon is more resistant to stains than other varieties of nylon.
  • Depending on the style of carpet, periodic deep cleaning is recommended to help reduce wear patterns.
  • Carpets made from nylon fiber are now easier to recycle back into new material, and there is an increasing number of eco-friendly nylon carpets available to consumers.
  • Nylon’s durability allows it to maintain its texture better than other synthetic fibers, and it provides stronger flooring solutions at lower grades of quality than materials such as olefin or polyester.
