Carpet flooring is a popular choice for both residential and commercial flooring, and it has been for decades. When choosing a carpet, there are many different options for material, style, and visual characteristics (color, pattern, fiber height, etc.). All of these aspects of carpeting will contribute not only to its aesthetic appeal, but also to how it stands up to traffic over time and its overall utility as a flooring material. Here we’ll look at nylon, which is the most popular synthetic carpet fiber in Lexington, KY, today.
Popularity of Nylon
In Lexington, nylon carpet makes up about 90 percent of the carpeting used in residential interiors. This is widely due to its durability and strength, but also because it’s a relatively inexpensive material that naturally resists staining, wear, and mildew growth. Although it is not the cheapest synthetic option, it’s the most versatile. From soft plush carpeting to low-pile and low maintenance Berber, it’s used in a number of different carpet styles.
In addition to its durability, nylon carpet is also easy to clean. This makes it an ideal choice for areas of high foot traffic, such as hallways, living rooms, and family rooms. If your Lexington home has small children or pets, you may want to consider nylon carpet that has been specially treated to prevent stains. This makes cleanup easier because it traps the liquid on top of the carpet fibers. Nylon that hasn’t been treated to resist stains may be more easily ruined. Nylon is a very absorbent material, which means spills can soak into the fibers and stain the floor fairly easily.
