Wool is a carpeting staple. It has been a part of the carpeting industry since its inception and is the only natural fiber carpet left on the market today. Wool is extremely soft and can raise the value of any home with its natural beauty. It hides dirt well and is easy to clean. On top of all that, it wears well leaving your carpet looking nice for years on end. Wools biggest downside, however, is it stains easily. Since it is a natural fiber its not chemically altered to better resist stains like other fibers can.
Polyester is your most eco-friendly choice for carpeting. Most polyester carpets you will find on the market today are made out of recycled materials such as bottles. Lots of what you recycle today can potentially become tomorrow's polyester carpet. Polyester carpet is extremely resilient to spills and stains. It also cleans well with no static effect. Its drawback lies in its wearability. Polyester does not hold well against high traffic and wear. Once the carpet is worn, it is worn. Its fibers don't have the strength to recover and furniture marks are hard to remove. Polyester carpet would be best in low traffic, sparsely decorated homes.
Last, but not least, on our list is Nylon. Nylon is a chemically formulated carpet fiber that has been on the market since the 80s. Nylon's carpet market is huge due to its high stain resistance and its array of colors and styles. Nylon also is extremely resistant to wear and tear. The fibers have the ability to recover from traffic almost immediately by bouncing back to its natural state. Nylon is also easy to clean and maintain. Nylon is a great choice for any home, especially if you experience high traffic.
