Among popular residential flooring options, carpet still reigns as the most popular option. At Main Floor Carpet One Floor & Home in Royal Oak, Michigan, you can trust our professionals to help you find the best carpet for your home or business. Compared to other floors, carpet is softer, warmer, and quieter – the perfect choice for bedrooms, living rooms, and dens!
Carpet features many characteristics that you need to take into consideration when finding flooring for your home or office. For families with active households, we have carpets that are resistant to staining and wear. We even have waterproof carpet floors, which protect your subfloor from spills and pet accidents. We can help you find the perfect carpet for your home that balances your needs. One of the most defining features of a carpet is it’s fiber type.
Nylon is the most common and popular carpet fiber option because of its durability and resistance to staining. It is great for homes with children and pets and is long-lasting.
Polyester is less expensive than nylon but features some of the same durability. It is comparable to the durability of nylon and is also great for homes with children and pets.
Triexta is an inherently durable fiber. These fibers are becoming a more popular option because unlike nylon, they are already resistant to staining and do not need to be treated.
Olefin/polypropylene fibers are perfect for decorative rugs and carpets.
Wool is a popular and natural fiber that comes from sheep. Homeowners love wool because it is hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, and flame-resistant. Wool carpets tend to be more expensive and the fibers can shed over time, but they are biodegradable and very crush-resistant.
First, it’s important to understand that no carpet is completely stain-proof. You should still follow best practices when it comes to cleaning up spills, which means wiping them up as soon as you find them. You should also avoid rubbing the spill, which can push the stain deeper into the carpet fibers. Instead, dab gently and use your carpet manufacturer’s approved cleaning products to help eliminate the mess.
Although you should still be careful with spills, you’ll be impressed by how effective today’s stain-resistant carpets are. They often have stain-treatment built right into the fibers. For instance, polyester and triexta fibers have natural stain-fighting abilities, and these are usually complemented by a proprietary stain treatment that’s tailored to the carpet so that it performs optimally. Stain treatments help block spills from absorbing into your carpet’s fibers. They also repel moisture and odors, and make the carpet easier to clean. For example, most spills on our Innovia X-treme Clean carpet can be wiped up with plain water. We also offer other carpet brands, like Tigressá and Lees, which have award-winning stain protection technology and warranties that cover spills like coffee and grease that aren’t covered by many other carpet brands
Carpet flooring is unique because there is no other flooring that can match its comfort or style. With that said, carpet can be installed in several places around your home. For high-traffic areas like hallways, living rooms, stairs, or children’s playrooms, we recommend choosing a carpet with a durable fiber that is resistant to staining. If you are looking to install carpet in a bedroom or home office, you can choose something that is more plush. We also have carpets that can be installed in basements and are completely waterproof. Additionally, we have commercial carpet and carpet tiles for business interiors.
