Understanding Carpet Fiber
Besides the organic wool fiber, there are many other different types of synthetic fibers that manufacturers make carpet out of. Keep in your mind that most of the carpet made in the United States is synthetic. The most common synthetic fibers are nylon, olefin (polypropylene), polyester, and triexta (PTT or Polytrimethylene Terephthalate).
Polyester (PET). The most popular carpet fibers used in homes today, which is made from recycled plastic bottles, making it eco-friendly. The PET fiber is well knows for its softness and high luster, and it has a more vibrant and rich color. It is also naturally stain resistant and more hypoallergenic than some other fibers.
SmartStrand (also known as Triexta). Smartstrand is an eco-friendly state-of-the-art technology that provides a softer touch with better coloration. Also, is well known for its stain resistance and durability altogether.
Nylon. Nylon is very soft, durable. Nylon on its own is not very good at resisting stains, which is why many different stain treatments are used by manufacturers to improve its resistance.
Polypropylene (Olefin). Is a carpet fiber that is used in many Berber carpets for commercial purposes because it has a similar look to wool. This fiber is highly stain-resistant, and relatively easy to clean.
Wool. Wool is a natural, luxurious and considered a premium carpet choice, and so it has a higher price tag than synthetic. It is a durable carpet fiber, but it can’t handle heavy traffic areas. Wool fibers will absorb water and other liquids, which means that spills need to be cleaned up quickly to prevent staining.
