Nylon carpeting is the most common carpet material used in residential homes. Homeowners in the greater Westlake, Avon Lake, & Avon, OH areas choose nylon because of its outstanding performance, wide selection, and lower price point. Due to our partnerships with leading national carpet manufacturers, like Shaw Floors and STAINMASTER®, we offer a vast selection of nylon options at manufacturer-direct pricing.
What Is Nylon?
Briefly jumping into chemistry, nylon is a type of synthetic polymer known as a thermoplastic. This means it can be shaped and molded at high temperatures, and then it sets upon cooling. Created by DuPont in the 1930s, its first commercial use came in 1938 as a nylon-bristled toothbrush. Today it has many uses in both fiber and bulk forms. For example, fiber uses include clothing and carpeting, while bulk uses include machine screws and engine components. When specifically used in carpet manufacturing, nylon 6 and nylon 66 fibers are used.
Why Nylon Carpet?
Across all categories, nylon carpet fiber outperforms other synthetic options, including polyester and olefin. Nylon carpet is the most durable, offers excellent color-steadfastness, and resists soil, stains, and mildew. Additionally, it has the widest selection of color and style options. Choose from cut or loop pile types, including Berber, plush, frieze, texture, and patterned styles.
Using Nylon Carpet
Due to its durability and soil-resistance, nylon carpet is an excellent choice for high traffic areas such as hallways and living rooms. It offers the added benefits of sound absorption, comfort, and warmth when compared to solid-flooring options.
Nylon carpet is also recyclable. Shaw Floors partners with reclamation centers across the nation, which convert the reclaimed carpet into new carpet or other products. Prior to installation, simply ask your installers to drop off your old carpet at a local recycling facility.
