Today’s carpet choices include some of the “greenest” options around! Newsweek Magazine listed Mohawk as one of the top “green” companies in the U.S. Both Mohawk and Shaw use recycled materials like P.E.T. plastics in their carpet yarns to produce some of the softest, most durable textiles available. In most cases, these recycled fibers even outperform some synthetic fibers.
Carpet Styles and Fibers
Here's a brief overview of carpeting styles and fibers to help you decide which one is just right for you. As always, contact us if you have any questions.
CUT AND LOOP
Special Note About Berbers:
Berbers are really big bulky yarns that are either produced in a level loop, or multi-level loop carpet construction. Although many Berbers are made out of olefin fiber, some are made with nylon, or a blend of various carpet fibers.
This is the most popular synthetic carpet fiber used today. It offers tremendous value, performance, and ease of maintenance. Nylon provides brilliant colors and hides soil and traffic well.
This fiber is also called polypropylene, and is extremely popular in Berbers and level loops. Olefin carpets are highly stain, static, mold, and mildew resistant. They can be used for indoor or outdoor carpets, including outdoor turf. Their resistance to matting and crushing are not as good as a nylon fiber.
Gives excellent color clarity with a soft feel to the carpet. Lacks the durability of a nylon carpet.
Has a real wool look and appearance. Used mainly in level loops, bath mats, and some velvet carpet styles. Offers good mold and mildew resistance with low static levels.
Although somewhat expensive wool still offers great bulk, performance, and an elegant look. Several area rugs are offered in wool.
