Triexta, introduced to the marketplace in 2009, is providing competition for tried-and-true nylon. Both fibers are strong and durable, and they perform well in high traffic areas of the home. Nylon, still the most popular fiber, is treated so it does not absorb liquid stains. In contrast, triexta naturally repels stains. But nylon is more resilient than triexta. It bounces back to its original look after heavy furniture or electronics are removed. Moisture-resistant polypropylene, vibrant colored polyester, and wool-like acrylic are additional types of fibers.
Wall-to-wall carpeting is installed with a stretcher that pulls it across the floor. Properly installed carpeting will lay flat throughout its lifespan. But it takes more than high-quality flooring and correct installation to ensure its longevity. Underlayment, or padding, must be placed on the subfloor before the floor covering is installed. This underlayment supports the carpet, and it absorbs the shock of everyday use. Also, it provides insulation and noise reduction and makes the flooring more comfortable to walk on.
