What is the difference between nylon and polyester?

You?ve settled on carpet for your next carpet flooring. However, the question remains: What type of carpet should I get? If you are looking at nylon and polyester, then here are a few details you should know about them.


Nylon is the original tried and true carpeting fiber. Nylon is a strong and durable fiber. When it is in the factory, a stain-resistant chemical is applied to it. It is so strong that it retains its look years after installation. It handles heavy furniture well, so you don?t see where it was after it springs back into place. It is resistant to fading, so it can go in rooms where there is a lot of daylight. It also works well in hallways, family rooms, and dining rooms. It is perfect for the heavy traffic of a busy family.


Polyester comes in an array of vibrant and beautiful colors. This is in contrast to nylon, which has a kind of dull color to it. Polyester is inherently stain-resistant, but it isn't as durable as nylon. It is better off being used in rooms where there is less traffic, like a bedroom. It is perfect for a child's or teenager's room that wants individuality with its bright colors. Polyester is made from recycled plastic bottles, making it more cost-effective and less expensive than nylon because of the low cost of raw materials and production.
