Nylon vs. polyester: What’s the difference?

If you’ve spent any time at all shopping for the perfect carpet flooring, you’ve already heard a lot about nylon and polyester fibers. In today’s post, we’re going to dive deeper into facts about each to give you a better idea of which one will fit your flooring requirements best, so read along now for that information.

Carpet flooring you can trust

Your new carpet could last many years to come and will be more apt to do so if you choose a fiber that’s going to work well underneath all that your lifestyle throws at it. And it starts with fiber choice.

Fibers are rated for different levels of traffic and environmental factors, which is why it’s always best to consider your needs as you shop. Here’s a look at some of the differences between the most popular fibers, nylon and polyester.

  • Nylon is used in the highest percentage of residential carpets sold in the nation and features excellent strength, which allows it to “bounce back” after repetitive use.
  • Polyester is the better choice for stain resistance as it offers hydrophobic fibers that repel liquids instead of soaking them up.
