What is Stain-Resistant Carpet?
Unfortunately, scientists haven’t yet figured out a way to produce a completely stain-proof carpeting. The good news is that stain-resistant carpet, though not guaranteed against all staining, makes it faster, simpler, and easier to keep your carpets looking as fresh and bright as the day they were purchased.
How Does Stain-Resistant Carpet Technology Work?
There is no question that stain-resistant carpeting offers superior stain protection compared to standard carpets. But how does stain-resistant carpet work? Let’s take a closer look at the technological that makes these innovative products, so effective at protecting against spills and other messes.
Today in the United States, most interior home carpeting products are made using nylon, a synthetic “polymer” (plastic) prized for its smooth texture, waterproof qualities, and ability to withstand damage from mold or insects. Taking advantage of nylon’s durability and versatility, some carpet manufacturers go an extra step during the production process, adding a chemical coating that makes it difficult for food, mud, pet urine, and other messes to penetrate the fibers through the coating.
The result? In most cases, you can prevent spills from becoming stains simply by applying soapy water before the stain dries. Of course, you should always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations to achieve the best results. For example, most manufacturers warn against using bleach, which can damage the protective coating (or even make stains worse).
While most stain-resistant carpets are nylon-based, there are certainly other options to choose from — not to mention stain-resistant non-carpet options, such as luxury vinyl. Flooring America offers a wide range of fabrics and materials to help you find the perfect fit.
How Much Does Stain-Resistant Carpet Cost?
Without knowing the details of your flooring project, it’s difficult to estimate how much it will cost, because the answer depends on how much carpeting you need and which type of product you choose.
