What makes a good carpet?

When looking for the perfect carpet, the answer to this question is going to be simpler than you might think. It will be which everyone best fits your particular set of needs. That’s why it’s important to make sure you spend some time both asking and answering questions when you speak to your flooring professional.

For instance, if there is a high rate of traffic throughout your home, and specifically in those rooms where you’re looking to place new flooring, you want to make sure that you choose a material that will stand up to that traffic. On the other hand, if the room sees very little traffic, you can afford to go with something a little less hardy.

At Inland Pacific Flooring, we want to make every effort to ensure your complete satisfaction with the flooring you choose. So we’ll work with you every step of the way. We proudly service the areas of Spokane, Spokane Valley, Post Falls, Hayden, and Coeur D’Alene with a showroom located in SpokaneValley, WA. We invite you to stop by with any questions you may have and to see our full line of flooring.

Understanding your carpet options

As we mentioned, choosing a carpet that fits your lifestyle is the most important facet of the entire process. You’ll want to spend some time looking at the characteristics of the different fibers from which you’ll have to choose. This is important because it’s the part of your flooring that will take on the most everyday wear and tear.

Nylon is a great choice and outperforms most other fibers. It’s durable, resilient, and easy to take care of, especially if you want a flooring that’s going to last for a while. It’s great for those high-traffic areas, and in homes where children and pets are a constant.

Additional carpet options

Polyester is also quite popular, because of its stain resistance and the luxuriously soft underfoot feel. You’ll get some of the most vibrant colors available, but it isn’t as durable as nylon.

If you’re looking for a trick to finding out the quality of the carpeting you’re looking at, you’re in luck, because we’re going to tell you. Simply bend back a carpet sample to see how easily you can see the backing. If it’s easy, then the carpet you’re looking at is a lower quality than most. It’s likely that a carpet like this will wear out fast under heavy traffic.
