Nylon vs. polyester: what's the difference?

You’ve probably heard the fibers nylon and polyester mentioned many times as you've shopped for the perfect carpeting, but what is the difference between the two? We will share a few brief facts about them today that should help you make a better-informed decision regarding your own needs, so follow along with our post.

Nylon and polyester carpeting are not entirely the same

Some homeowners believe that carpet is carpet, but some significant differences between fibers will change everything about your experience, including the lifespan. That’s why choosing a fiber that best fits your lifestyle will help you love the surfaces and extend the lifespan and save money over time.

Nylon is strong, durable, and probably the most popular fiber choice in flooring, offering many of the benefits homeowners love about this flooring choice. It’s particularly loved for its static-free character and mildew resistance as well.

While not as hard-wearing as nylon, polyester is an excellent choice for stain resistance, making it a pet and child-friendly option in every room. You'll also find the colors brighter and shinier, giving you an impressive décor match, no matter which room you add it to.
