Polyester carpets offer some of the best value for money, and have a variety of uses. They are valued for their stain and fade resistance, and offer an easy to clean carpet at an affordable price.
Polyester – The Fibre
Polyester is a synthetic carpet fibre. It is commonly made from recycled materials, such as single use plastic bottles, and thus offers an environmentally conscious choice. However, not all polyester carpets are manufactured using recycled materials, so if this is important to you, be sure to talk to us and ensure you purchase a recycled material polyester carpet. This man-made material is an excellent choice for those with allergies, as it is an inert, non-allergenic material.
Why Choose A Polyester Carpet?
Polyester carpets make for some of the most colourful carpets available. Available in a wide range of colourations, a polyester carpet can be installed to match existing décor in your home or business. This is a look you can count on to last for years, as polyester carpets are highly fade resistant. They are also resistant to stains and soiling, getting high marks for easy cleaning. In addition to being non-allergenic, polyester carpets are resistant to mould and moisture, thus making them an excellent choice when concerns about hygiene or asthma exist.
One of the concerns about polyester carpets is the decreased resiliency when compared to other synthetic options. As a measure of a carpets’ ability to bounce back and keep its own shape, this low resiliency means that a polyester carpet may begin to show signs of wear earlier than others. This makes polyester carpets a good choice for low traffic areas, such as seldom used spare rooms, where resilience is less of a concern than other factors (like stain and fade resistance). Offering the best value, polyester carpets are a good choice for those on a budget.
