What You Should Know About Nylon Carpet

Nylon carpet is generally considered the most popular carpet fiber on the market today. But is it the right carpet fiber for you? Let’s take a look at its characteristics.


Nylon is a very strong fiber that is incredibly durable and holds up well to traffic and daily wear and tear. It is the most resilient fiber on the market today, meaning that it holds up better than other synthetic fibers to fraying and it will stay looking new longer. This makes it a great choice if you’re looking for a carpet for a high traffic area of your home that you want to last a long time.

Stain Resistance

One important thing to know about nylon carpet is that while it has great stain resistance, it is not naturally stain-resistant. Nylon carpet has to be treated with a stain treatment. This is important to consider when you are comparing different nylon carpets. Higher quality stain treatment is going to be used on a branded nylon carpet – such as Shaw or Mohawk – when you compare it to a generic carpet.


There is a wide range of options for nylon carpet, which makes it easy to find one that is in your price point. In general, however, nylon carpet is going to cost more than a comparable carpet made from a different synthetic fiber.


Nylon carpet is a great carpet that holds up well and lasts for years. While there are other factors to consider, choosing a great carpet fiber will help you to enjoy your new carpet for a long time. Stop by Carpet Depot today to let us help you choose a great carpet that will fit your home, lifestyle, and budget.
