Modern Carpet One Floor & Home in Lanham, Maryland, is your locally owned flooring and carpet store. If you’re looking for the best place to buy carpet near you, you can turn to our flooring professionals as your neighborhood experts. Due to its unmatched characteristics and style, carpet continues to be one of our top flooring choices. It’s durable, soft, and stylish, and can transform any room. We also carry hypoallergenic carpets, kid-friendly and pet-friendly options, and even waterproof carpets for finished basements and active homes where spills are common.
It’s important to choose the right type of carpet that balances style and performance. Carpet is made up of fibers which are then twisted into piles. Fibers can be made of different materials that are either synthetic or natural. Synthetic carpet fibers include nylon, polyester, triexta, and olefin. Wool is one of the natural fibers used in carpets. Wool features different benefits such as being flame-resistant, antimicrobial, and eco-friendly. Carpet piles come in a variety of styles, including high, low, and medium lengths, which may be cut at the end or woven into loops.
Nylon carpet pile is a very popular synthetic. Seriously soft and extremely durable, nylon carpeting is made to resist staining and fading. It comes equipped with a protective coating to keep stains and wear from sinking in, making it suitable for busy settings in both commercial and residential spaces.
Polyester carpet pile is a synthetic material that feels very much like nylon, though it tends to be a lot more affordable. Modern innovation has given us a polyester pile that can still fight stains, making this carpeting as sturdy as it is smart.
Triexta carpet pile is made for sheer endurance. These rough and bristly synthetic fibers are woven into delicate patterns, made to manage footprints and debris. Triexta carpeting works well in commercial settings.
Olefin/polypropylene carpet pile is so soft it’s regularly compared to velvet. With its intricate patterns, this synthetic carpeting is the epitome of luxury, but it doesn’t fare well in high-traffic areas. Save these special selections for your more quiet rooms.
Wool carpet pile is naturally-sourced for a rug that’s insanely soft and warm. Sturdy and hypoallergenic, wool carpeting resists mildew and moisture, and its colors won’t readily fade.
While no carpet is completely stain-proof, today’s stain resistant technology has come a long way. It provides a protective barrier that stops spills from sinking into the carpet fibers and permanently pigmenting them. Our stain-resistant carpet options are also easy to clean, fast-drying, and odor-resistant. With some options, like Innovia Xtreme Clean, you can wipe up spills with just water.
Stain-resistant carpets can have inherent spill fighting abilities. For instance, polyester and triexta carpets tend to repel water-based stains. Other fibers, like nylon, are not particularly great at fighting stains. However, carpet manufacturers can apply a stain treatment that enhances blemish resistance so that your new floor stays looking beautiful. This treatment may coat the surface of the floor, or it can be built into the fibers themselves. Built-in stain treatments resist wearing off over time. No matter what type of stain technology your carpet employs, it’s important to clean up spills as soon as you can. You should also avoid rubbing the stain to remove it. Instead, gently dab it to avoid pushing the spill deeper into the fibers.
In addition to stain fighting technology, our professional flooring experts can walk you through the impressive inventory of carpet colors, textures, and patterns that we have. We’ll show you which designs are better at hiding pet fur, dirt, debris, and blemishes between cleanings. For instance, multi-tonal carpets help camouflage spots. Meanwhile, low-pile carpets tend to dry faster. We also have waterproof carpets, which have an industrial backing that blocks spills from damaging your carpet pad and subfloor.
The most common spaces where carpet is installed include bedrooms and living rooms. Carpet can withstand a lot of activity, and it adds comfort, warmth, and sound absorption to promote a cozy, quiet atmosphere. This makes it perfect for playrooms, home offices, dens, and more. It’s important to avoid installing carpet in high-moisture areas like bathrooms and kitchens. We also offer commercial carpet and carpet tiles, which are ideal for busy settings that experience a lot of traffic and wear.
