The majority of the carpet produced in the United States contains one of five pile fibers:

  • Nylon
  • Polypropylene (olefin)
  • Polyester
  • Acrylic
  • Wool

A new fiber Triexta (which is found in SmartStrand carpet, a renewably sourced polymer) and Smart Strand Silk with DuPont Sorna is the only luxuriously soft carpet with built-in stain and soil protection that never washes or wears off and cleans with just water.

Synthetic fibers make up more than 99% of the fiber used by the U.S. carpet industry. Each fiber has strengths and weaknesses that must be recognized and should influence how it is to be used and constructed. Some fibers have very low resiliency and only should be manufactured in high-density loop pile constructions to limit crushing (pile flattening). Other fibers have the tendency to absorb oily soils and other oil-based compounds (including body oils) and should be carefully considered before installing in areas subject to these contaminants. It should be emphasized that there is no perfect fiber and carpet is a fabric that is subjected to incredible abuse through foot traffic and accidental spills. At Classic Carpet, we will be with you at every step to make the right decision for your needs.

Our mills and suppliers are very conscious of the growing need for "green" products as well as "green" production methods. We also recycle old cushions from our job sites.
