Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6 There are two types of nylon used in carpeting: type 6 and type 6,6 (both are nylon but they have different molecular structures). After much debate within the industry about whether one type is preferable to the other, years of testing have determined that there is minimal difference in durability or resiliency between the two. However, from a “green” standpoint, nylon 6 recyclables more.. Read More

Consider Acoustics When Choosing Flooring

Every room has different acoustical properties. The size and shape of the room, the items it holds, and even the materials of the room itself affect how sound waves will travel within a room.

Carpet Sound waves are absorbed and deflected by carpet and carpet padding with more sound being absorbed with a thicker pad. Carpet is great for theater rooms since bass frequencies from your entertainment system’s subwoofers travels low to the ground. If the.. Read More
