The variety of materials now available when buying a new carpet is remarkable, either used alone or in conjunction with other materials in order to create a carpet blend which offers more benefits than the one material alone.
Nylon is incredibly soft,
durable, and resistant to stains and abrasion.
It has good resistance to wear and it holds its colour well as it does
not fade easily in the sunlight. It is less
expensive than wool but more expensive than polypropylene and polyester.
Polypropylene fibres appear like
natural wool and are often used as a synthetic wool substitute. This fibre is
highly stain resistant and it is incredibly easy to clean, even bleach can be used
to clean the carpet if necessary. The
cost of polypropylene is slightly less than most nylon carpets, but more than
polyester and acrylic.
Polyester has great ability to
hold vibrant, fade-resistant colours. The fibre is also non-allergenic. Some
polyester carpets are made from recycled plastic bottles, making it
eco-friendly. Its main drawback is that polyester can flatten, making it a bad
choice for high-traffic areas.
Wool is a natural, luxurious,
long-lasting material. Some manufacturers combine wool with synthetic fibres to create a
carpet with the benefits of both. Wool/polypropylene blends are especially
common. Pure wool carpet is made with no
chemicals or additives, which makes it an excellent choice for those with
allergies or sensitivities to chemicals
