Rhodes Carpet and Installation carries a wide range of carpet fibers. Based on your specific use, we can help you decide which is best for you.PET Polyester
– Generally the least expensive fibers. Manufactured using recycled Soda/Water bottles. This is important because this type of plastic is new and has never been used for any other purpose, making it a very strong fiber. The color goes all the away through the fiber, therefore it is inherently stain resistant, can be aggressively cleaned, fade resistant and allows for more vibrant colors. Budget friendly for gamerooms and familyrooms where stains are most likely to happen.Nylon
– This fiber has been in use for carpets for a very long time. Known to be the most resilient fiber on the market. It is great to be used in bedrooms and other high foot traffic areas such as steps and hallways. Stain resistance is applied to the fiber, however most nylons do not have the color throughout the fiber. Think Carrot vs Radish, Nylon is the Radish. This makes it more susceptible to fading and you need to be more careful in cleaning. Triexta
– Also know as Smartstrand, this fiber is newer to the market. We have been selling this product since it was first launched in 2005 and have had great success. Made from corn, instead of petroleum, the fiber has permanent stain resistance that never wears off. Also, very resilient and resistant to fading. Best used in areas where stains are a problem such as high traffic living and dining areas. Kid and Pet friendly.
