Carpet Cleaning Tips For Choosing A Durable Carpet

As an experienced carpet cleaning service, we know what type of carpet is best suited for every type of room. High-traffic areas are the most important hot spots to consider when installing new carpets. Such areas get a lot of wear and tear, and require more frequent carpet cleaning. Not all carpets are suitable for that much stress, however.

Starting with the synthetic fibers, nylon is one of the best choices for high-traffic areas. It is very resilient and regains it’s original shape no matter how much wear and tear you apply to it. It has a great memory and maintaining it is easy, especially with steam carpet cleaning.

  • Polyester is one of the most affordable carpet fibers, but it’s not a good choice for high-traffic areas. It mattes a lot quicker than other carpets and is not very easy for carpet cleaning.
  • Olefin is a good synthetic fiber for carpets, but only if it’s looped. It can stand a lot of wear. Plush olefin, however, will not work well under heavy traffic.
  • A newer type of synthetic fiber, is called Triexta. It is made of corn and petroleum, and is currently one of the best synthetic options, when it comes to resilience. Some carpets made of Triexta even have warranties.
  • Wool is the classic choice and it’s the best material you can hope to find in a carpet. It can withstand a lot of traffic and is easy to clean without any complications. It’s the most durable natural fiber, unfortunately, it is also the most expensive one on the market.
  • Another natural fiber you can use, is Sisal. It’s very durable, but quite coarse and not as soft and gentle, as a woolen carpet.

Both natural and synthetic fibers have champions in resisting wear in high-traffic areas. Nylon and Triexta are the better choices when it comes to synthetic carpets and their maintenance. Wool and sisal are the leading choices if you want a natural fiber carpet. The more important thing is to get one with loops.
