If you are thinking about installing carpet in your Blue Bell home, there are a lot of factors to consider before you pick a product. At Floor Coverings International Montco we want you to have the perfect carpet for your Blue Bell home. Here’s what you should know about different synthetic carpet materials, so you can pick the right type for your family.

Nylon Carpet  carpet fibers samples montco flooring


There’s a reason why nylon is the most popular synthetic carpet fiber. Nylon is impressively long lasting and durable, which Blue Bell homeowners love. We can help you find nylon that has been treated to be stain-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about accidental spills damaging your new carpet.


While nylon has a lot of perks, it is one of the more expensive types of synthetic carpet. It is still more affordable than natural carpet fibers, like wool. We firmly believe that the many benefits of nylon outweigh the costs.

Olefin Carpet


At Floor Coverings International Montco we love that olefin is able to accurately mimic the look of wool carpet. Its stunning look comes at a lower price-point than a wool carpet, which is a great bonus. The color of olefin carpet will not fade over time, meaning that the beautiful carpet you buy today will look the same down the road.


While olefin is impressively water-resistant for a carpet, it does not have the same strength when it comes to oil-based spills. Olefin carpet attracts oils and it is difficult to remove oil-based stains from the carpet fibers. Avoid putting olefin in areas of your home where you may spill food to reduce the possibility of a stain occurring.

If you’re looking for a budget carpet option, then polyester is the fiber type for you. Blue Bell homeowners love the vibrant color of polyester fiber. Besides its beautiful color, the fiber is stain-resistant and eco-friendly. If your home is full of messy children, polyester can stand up to the challenge.


Polyester is a beautiful option, but it is not as durable as other fibers. To combat the carpet’s lack of resiliency, consider installing it in low-traffic areas of your Blue Bell home. While it may not be the best living room carpet option, it is a great way to make any bedroom cozy.
