- COMMERCIAL CARPET TIPS
Carpet selection criteria starts with the face fiber.There are four main fibers used in carpet. NYLON is the most prominent fiber in carpet today. It has continually been modified since its introduction in the 1940’s to improve the look, feel, soil-hiding ability and flexible dyeing characteristics. Most premium branded nylon is considered optimum for commercial interiors. WOOL has been used since earliest times and is the point of reference for manmade fibers. All manmade fibers strive to achieve the natural luster and feel of wool. It ages gracefully under light traffic and is inherently fire resistant, so it is preferable for airplanes and cruise ships. But since wool is a natural fiber it does not have the performance characteristics of some synthetic fibers. OLEFIN and POLYESTER are not as resilient as nylon.Though they can offer some value, they generally are not considered appropriate for commercial use.
