What Are the Types of Carpet?

Carpet is a time tested flooring option for residential homes. It is made to be durable and long-lasting all while remaining comfortable and soft. Carpet is the type of flooring you look forward to stepping on after a long day at work. It helps transform your room into an intimate and relaxing space within your home. Jims Carpet One Floor & Home in Fort Dodge has a carpet for just about every home, and we can help you choose the right carpet.

Your lifestyle can impact the type of carpet you need in your home. If you live an active life, something easy to clean is the right fit. If you have children and pets in your home, choosing a stain resistant carpet is your best bet at tacking messes. Below we review a few different carpet options you can select.

Stain Resistant Carpet

First we want to let you know that just because a carpet is stain resistant that does not mean it is stain proof. With that said, a stain resistant carpet has stain fighting powers that can protect your carpet if you cannot get to a mess right away. These carpets do not allow stains to penetrate the fibers, making cleaning up a breeze. Stain resistant carpets are perfect for families who have children and pets in their home where accidents are inevitable.

We recommend taking a look at our Carpet One Floor & Home exclusive product Relax, it’s…Lees which features state-of-the-art stain fighting technology leaving your carpets look beautiful.

Waterproof Carpet

You read that right, we offer 100% waterproof carpet. What once was only available as a commercial product has made its way into residential homes. Waterproof carpet is the ideal flooring solution for families with active lifestyles and with pets. Our featured Carpet One Floor & Home exclusive brand Tigressá H2O has an impenetrable backing that stops moisture from seeping through to your subfloor. This also prevents odors from pet accidents sticking around.
