What to consider when looking at nylon carpet

Nylon carpets offer long term resilience, resistance to stains and years of durability.  There are many types of carpet that fall under this type of carpet.  Solution dyed nylon is the most popular type of nylon available, as it is very stain resistant and will not shed.  Another type of carpet is the PET polyester, which uses recycled PET plastics in the manufacturing process.  These carpets can have a luxurious handle making them very popular.

Why should I choose Nylon carpet?

Nylon is a popular option because of its superior resistance to staining, fading, and foot traffic. It is available in fashionable colours and varying price ranges.

Are there as many options available in nylon carpets compared to wool?

Unfortunately no. The textures available in nylon are limited to twist piles and a several loop piles designs. The colour ranges of nylon carpets tend to suit a more contemporary colour palette. Slocum Floorcoverings only carries nylon carpets that we can stand by and are proud to promote. This is why we don't carry some of the lesser quality entry level nylons on the market.
