What Should I Consider When Choosing Carpet?
Types of Carpet Fibers
Durable with excellent abrasion resistance, wear-ability and resiliency or "bounce back". Nylon can be found in a wide range of styles and colors. It’s an excellent choice for residential and commercial properties with heavy traffic. Although not bleach resistant nor inherently stain resistant, most nylon carpets are treated with a topical stain resistance treatment to help with stains.
Polyester (PET) Offers exceptional softness and color clarity, is naturally stain and fade resistant being made from plastic bottle "chips". Carpets of polyester are generally available only in cut pile styles and are usually less expensive than nylon in comparable weights.
Poly Trimethylene Terephthalate (PTT) is a newer fiber developed by DuPont in the 1990’s. This fiber incorporates the best of both worlds of Nylon and Polyester. It has the inherent stain resistance of PET and wears comparable to Nylon. It is bleach and soil resistant with good resiliency or "bounce-back".
