If you are considering buying new carpet for your home you should first research all of the types of carpet available for purchase. Carpets vary in terms of price, durability, softness and stain-resistance and its important to know all the facts about each fiber before you commit to one.
In order to help you make an informed decision, Waukesha Carpet Cleaning Blog is dishing out the facts about the fibers most often used for residential purposes, including olefin, polyester, nylon, wool and triexta.
It’s possible you have never even heard of triexta since it is a relatively new option in terms of carpet fibers. It was invented by DuPont, the same company that invented nylon, but it is much more similar to polyester carpet than any other fiber and is somewhat of a polyester/nylon hybrid.

Is triexta carpet durable?
Triexta is extremely durable, similar to nylon and more so than polyester, and is an excellent choice for high traffic areas in your home. It’s withstood several durability tests and is highly recommended for busy homes with pets, children and constant traffic.
Triexta is also able to resist fading caused from intense light and because the colors are dyed into the fibers during the initial steps of creating the carpet, it is the most colorfast carpet on the market today. Because the colors are dyed directly into the fibers, triexta can also withstand harsh chemicals such as bleach and others found in some cleaning products.
Is triexta carpet easy to clean?
Yes. Just like polyester, triexta carpet is extremely stain-resistant and just requires routine vacuuming and regularly scheduled cleanings from a professional carpet cleaner in Waukesha.
Is triexta carpet right for you?
Triexta is becoming increasingly popular as people start to become aware of it. In fact, many are calling it “the fiber of the future” thanks to its low cost, durability and extreme softness. It basically has almost all you could want in a carpet, the only drawback being that it is relatively new so there is no records on how it holds up after 10 or more years in a home.
If you are working with a limited budget you will probably want to consider triexta. Triexta is a cheaper carpet choice because it is extremely eco-friendly and requires much less fuel and fewer chemicals to produce. It should also be cheaper to clean and maintain than other options.
Once you have purchased your new triexta carpet, it will still be important to have it professionally cleaned once every 12-18 months in order to maintain similar quality throughout its lifetime in your home and keep the manufacturer warranty intact.
