Which carpet fiber is best for stair runners?

When considering stair carpets, you need to consider fiber because it has everything to do with appearance and performance. People and pets run upstairs all day long.

So, you need a durable carpet fiber with excellent safety characteristics.

Wool and wool blends

Wool is always a good choice for anywhere, including the stairs. It's durable and soil-resistant; the natural oils have small scales that flick off the dirt.

It is also absorbent, so wipe spills immediately. Choose a wood blend for the stairs if you want the best of both worlds.?

The addition of synthetic fibers to a wool carpet?installation gives a little boost to durability and resilience. Synthetics also tend to be more stain resistant.

Others to carpet fibers consider

  1. Nylon: This synthetic fiber has ultra strength and resilience. It can handle anything, from the heaviest foot traffic to large families with kids and pets. Nylon can be soft, depending on style, and comes in many versions. Ask us about Nylon R2X and Anso Nylon when you enter our showroom.?
  2. Olefin: This is a budget-friendly fiber that is durable when used in a loop construction. You?ll see plenty of looped styles in our carpet store in San Bernardino and Yucaipa, CA.?

Consider style, too

Stair carpeting needs to provide a firm foundation for the foot. It also needs to fit in and around railings and noses when installed.

Low-pile rugs, such as commercial ones, are best. They're stylish, and the many design options make them ideal for residential use.

Looped constructions are also good choices with their short, tight weaves.?
