Carpet in Porterville, CA
Carpet comforts us and warms our souls. But is carpet the right choice for your home or business, in all its busyness? With modern innovation, the answer is a resounding “yes!” At Thompson's Floor Covering Carpet One Floor & Home of Porterville, CA, we're your local source for residential and commercial carpet. Whether your style is classical or contemporary, carpet can solve everyday problems like allergens, spills, and high traffic. Here are things to consider while you shop carpet.
There are hundreds of carpet options. Understanding the way your carpet is built will help you make informed choices. Carpet pile- or the fibers inside your carpet- can be synthetic or natural. These fibers form patterns and textures, such as a plush and level loop. Each carpet form boasts varying abilities and strengths:
Nylon is the most popular synthetic carpet fiber. Nylon features high performance and durability. This carpet fiber can also be treated for stain resistance
Polyester is a less expensive synthetic fiber compared to nylon. As technology continues to advance, this fiber is becoming more robust and durable.
Olefin/polypropylene is best for low-traffic areas like dining rooms or formal rooms. This synthetic has more decorative patterns and are designed to be looked at rather than be lived on.
Wool is a sustainable and natural fiber. Wool is considered hypoallergenic since it traps allergens and stops them from floating into the breathing zone.
Triexta is a cousin to polyester. It is inherently stain-resistant, and unlike nylon fibers, it doesn’t require additional treatment to do so—it’s considered an equal option to nylon.
At might surprise you to learn that carpet is a viable option for any interior space, aside from your bathroom and kitchen. The key, of course, is finding the appropriate products to suit your space. Install a more resilient product for high traffic zones like hallways, stairs, and entryways. For your toddler's room, we recommend using a pet-friendly, stain-resistant product.
