How to select a proper carpet for steps:
Stairs are the most frequently trafficked place in the home. Besides the style and color, the carpet has to be of appropriate durability and density. Most dense nylon carpets would work for wear and holding to traffic. Other synthetic fibers such as polypropylene and polyester are not strong and would mat down faster. Wools, also must be dense and short pile. Wool blends such as woven Axminister which are mostly 80% wool and 20% nylon are the strongest carpet for steps. Other woven carpets such as woven Wilton are not as strong to heavy traffic. Any carpet used for steps must have a dense pad such as 30 to 40oz synthetic Jute pad.
