Nylon vs. polyester: what is the difference?

You may have heard it said that both nylon and polyester carpets are durable, but what does that mean? There are indeed differences between these two materials, and we’re going to tell you more about that in today’s post.

Your carpet flooring is important

Since you want your carpet floors to last as long as they should, you’ll want to choose a fiber that caters to the specific traffic levels and activities that go on in your home. Consider these facts about nylon and polyester to determine which one might be best for your space.

Nylon is the most common flooring type, accounting for most synthetic fibers purchased, and offers excellent strength and "bounce-back" capabilities in heavily traveled areas. They also repel stains and offer vibrant colors, making them perfect for some of your busiest spaces.

Polyester is one of the most beautiful fibers, featuring vivid colors that seem to shine and stain resistance better than nylon. However, polyester crushes faster under heavy traffic, making it a better choice for lightly traveled areas that might be more prone to stains.
