Are synthetic or natural carpet fibers best for me?


Monday, September 20, 2021 10:44 AM

When it comes to carpeting fibers, you have the option of synthetic or natural. Natural fibers, of course, are those found in nature, such as wool, sisal, or jute, while synthetic fibers are those that are created.

To find out which is best for you, we must consider your requirements. One is sure to work better than the others for your specific needs.


Carpeting offers plenty of options

While carpet is known for many outstanding benefits and characteristics, here are some things to consider about fiber makeup. While one is likely best for your household, you may be able to mix and match in various rooms.

Natural fibers can offer excellent benefits that include strength, durability, longevity, and comfort, but they are always more expensive than synthetic options. They are also eco-friendly and provide highly sustainable options for conservation-minded homeowners.

Synthetic fibers, especially nylon, offer a more affordable option than wool, with outstanding stain resistance and simple maintenance requirements. Other synthetic fibers available to you include polyester, olefin, and triexta.

When attempting to choose between these two fiber options, be sure to ask your associate about every detail and benefit each has to offer. For example, while natural materials are more expensive upfront, they can save you money over time.
