When you are looking for a way to breathe new life into your home's décor, start from the bottom. Your floors may be under your feet, but they should not be out of your thoughts. By installing new carpeting in Havertown, you can revamp the look of your home without having to undergo a complete renovation. Carpet is soft, environmentally friendly, and provides warmth as well as sound insulation in any room in your home. In addition to finding a color of carpet that you like, you will be able to choose from a variety of different carpeting materials. Keep reading to learn about a few of the materials commonly used to make carpets.

Wool
Wool is a natural fiber, and a classic choice for carpet. It is strong and durable, making it a great choice for high-traffic areas or homes with kids and pets. Wool carpet is also easy to clean, which is another reason it is ideal for families with a lot of activity. Be aware if you choose wool carpeting that it is easily affected by chlorine bleach, so use caution when you are cleaning or carrying cleaning products across your carpet.

Nylon
If you are looking for a versatile carpeting material, nylon could be the right choice for you. Nylon is resistant to abrasions, and can even spring back to its original shape after being compressed for long periods of time. You can feel confident if you rearrange your furniture that a nylon carpet will not show the marks of previous furniture placement. It is available in many different colors and textures to coordinate with your home's décor.

Olefin
Olefin is a synthetic fiber that can be used to make carpets. It will not fade easily, and it takes a lot for an olefin carpet to stain. Olefin is also nearly impervious to damage from many chemicals, including bleach. However, unlike nylon, olefin lacks a certain resiliency so it will not regain its original shape as easily.
