Types of Stain-Resistant Carpet

We’re all living in these unique times in which we’re spending more time than ever in our homes. For those of us who have children, that means we’re constantly cleaning up spills and messes throughout the day. If your family has carpet and children, you completely understand the importance of having a stain-resistant carpet in your home. Stain-resistant carpet can fend off potential stains from many sources including spilled beverages, food, pet accidents, ink marks, and much more. If you are interested in stain-resistant carpets, they generally come in three different types, so you aren’t limited in your options.

  1. Wool – Wool carpet is a popular choice for homeowners who want a stain-resistant carpet option due to the fact that it is a natural material. In addition to being a natural material, wool carpet is also durable and soft to the touch, which makes it great for homes with young children. However, the downside to wool carpet is that it often comes with a price tag that is higher than other stain-resistant carpet options.
  2. Polyester – Polyester carpet is known for being soft but also quite strong. As a synthetic material, polyester carpet is coated to make it stain-resistant. There are many different types of polyester carpet including some made from recycled materials which make them not only great for resisting stains but also great for environmental sustainability and economic value.
  3. Nylon – Although nylon is not a natural material, nylon is made to be stain-resistant during the manufacturing process. This stain-resistant coating makes spills and potential stains easy to clean with soap and water. Similarly to polyester, nylon carpet is very soft to the touch. It is also considered to be the most durable stain-resistant carpet material of the three main choices.
