Here are some comparisons between the two that tell you whether wool carpet will be better for your home than nylon. Please find out more here and contact us or stop by for more answers.

Comparing and contrasting wood and nylon

The most apparent difference between these two carpet types is that nylon is synthetic, and wool is all-natural. As a result, wool carpet could be a better choice if you're looking for an eco-friendly or sustainable product.

Wool can act as a dehumidifier, soaking up enough moisture to equal 30% of the product's weight. While this works well for humid areas, there may be better choices in places where spills are common.

Nylon wins when it comes to durability, as the materials were created with resilience to resist wear, crushing, and matting. Wool is durable to an extent but better reserved for lower-traffic spaces.

If you or someone in your home suffers from allergies, both fibers from our carpet store would be a great addition to your home. They resist allergens and are easy to clean, so any residual allergens are easily removed.
