Carpet installation in a Calgary, AB home

Nylon vs. polyester carpet: what is the difference?

If you are currently shopping for new carpet for your Calgary home, you?ve probably heard a lot about the available fiber options. However, if you do not know the difference between them, be sure to read along with us in today's post, or give us a call!

Carpet fibers matter

Nylon and polyester are often spoken of as if they are the same and offer the same benefits, but they do have differences that may matter to your floors while they are pretty similar. For instance, both products are incredibly resistant to stains and inhibit the growth of mold and mildew, but nylon is much more durable than polyester, where crushing is a consideration.

On the other hand, polyester comes in with better ratings for comfort, affordability, and eco-friendly options, so your requirements will determine which one is better for your home. Once you consider all your needs, you will know which one you need most.

Either of these materials is an outstanding performer in a general-use situation. Still, if you have specific requirements, you will want to look more closely at their differences. For answers to your questions and to experience these materials in person, be sure to visit us at your convenience.
