Picking out your new flooring can be a daunting task. Once you’ve decided on carpet you have to decide on the color, style, carpet fiber, and more. The type of fiber chosen will have a big impact on how the carpet holds up and looks over time. Thankfully the experts at Floor Coverings International North Jersey outline the benefits and drawbacks of polyester carpet below!
Polyester is very affordable and is available in many different colors and styles to pick from. It is known for its softness and color clarity. It is naturally stain and fade resistant, meaning it will look good for many years to come! It holds up exceptionally well to water-based stains and resists bleach well. It is a strong fiber, but not as durable as other synthetic carpet fibers such as nylon. This makes polyester a great choice for low – to medium – traffic areas of the home such as the bedrooms.
While polyester is available in a wide variety of styles, it doesn’t take dye as well so there might not be as many color options as there would be with another fiber. While it is a durable fiber, it is known to mat down after some time and won’t spring back up like wool and other fibers will.
