Carpet in Phenix City, AL from FloorWorks

Three tips for shopping for carpet

Wall-to-wall carpet flooring brings color and texture to room decor as well as the cozy ambiance for which it is known.

There are lots of styles to consider, but the flooring specialists at FloorWorks can help you find the style that is well-suited to your home and your lifestyle. We carry a wide selection of carpet in Phenix City, AL.

1. Choosing the suitable fiber for a particular home space ensures maximum lifespan.

Nylon is the favorite fiber because it is tough and resilient, which means it bounces back to its original form after it has been stepped on. In addition, Triexta is a naturally stain-resistant fiber that is similar in strength to nylon, making both fibers ideal for high-traffic areas.

In contrast, polyester works well in low-traffic spaces, while olefin is optimal for a basement since it resists moisture.

2. Comparing loop and cut pile styles is best before making a final purchase decision.

Carpet fibers are looped onto a backing, and these loops can be cut at the tips to create cut pile styles. Loop pile carpet is a good choice for stairs and hallways since it wears well and stands up to heavy foot traffic.

Softer cut pile styles are composed of twisted fibers to increase durability; thus, it's best to choose a carpet with a 5 or greater TPI or turns per inch.

3. Choose carpet flooring designed for your needs.

Many manufacturers offer highly stain-resistant and easy-to-clean carpeting backed by a pet-friendly warranty. Because of its makeup, this carpet flooring can tolerate more than usual abrasion from daily use and occasional pet accidents.

Because it is so tough, this long-lasting carpet is also ideal for very active households.
