Durable and Warm with Diverse Style Options
Nylon carpet is a popular choice for homes in the Charleston and Mount Pleasant, South Carolina areas. In fact, nylon is arguably the most used carpet material in residential homes today. This is because it’s a durable material that naturally resists staining, wear, and mildew.
Nylon carpet comes in two general types: staple and bulk continuous filament. Staple carpet has 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 Charleston, SC area find that nylon carpet offers many benefits. The fibers are durable and hold a twist well so you can expect to enjoy your carpet for many years. It is an ideal choice for areas of high foot traffic such as hallways, living rooms, and family rooms. Nylon carpeting is also stain and soil resistant and easy to clean. 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.
Choosing nylon carpet gives you many options in the style department. Some choices to consider are the carpet pile, grade, and colors.
- Carpet Pile. Nylon carpet comes in both loop and cut pile constructions. Choose the option that best fits your needs.
- Grade. There are varying degrees of carpet grades to fit your needs. Less frequented rooms can often 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 eccentric green, you’ll find an option that fits any design you may have in mind.
