We have your type…of carpet that is

There are all types of floor coverings for all types of people. We want to be the people who help you find the right kind of carpet and the right kind of fiber for you and your home. At Mendel Carpet and Flooring, we are your carpet store in Indianapolis, let us help you sort through the many options.

Which comes first, style, or fiber?

This is like asking, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Depending on your needs, the fibers may be more important to you. For instance, polyester fibers are celebrated for their stain resistance and brilliant colors while nylon fibers have a long track record of durability. You might even want to try a product with triexta fibers, which both capture the natural stain resistance of polyester as well as the stronger durability of nylon.

Permanent stain protection

Then again, the feel and appearance may be your first step. There is a standard twist or plush carpet. Another common option is the Berber — looped carpeting that is both durable and soft underfoot. If you like the idea of a loop but want something a little dressier, why not consider a patterned broadloom for your room or rooms. Another option that has been around for quite some time, though is a little less commonly seen is that of a frieze. These are in the family of the old shag rugs, though tend to be a little shorter in length. The tufts on a frieze are twisted quite tightly, thus giving a relaxed yet very durable feel.

At Mendel Carpet and Flooring, we offer a line of Smart Strand and Forever Clean . These carpet fibers have been specially designed not just to repel stains, but to prevent them. Tests with this fiber have been conducted by soaking swatches in red wine and the wine rinses out with water alone. They are a great option for high-traffic areas that attract spills for they can easily be cleaned without the worry of staining; you have our word on it.
