Durability, standing up to everyday wear

Everyone wants a rug that looks great and performs well for a long time. Some, like big families with kids and pets, need extra durability. Others might entertain frequently and have heavy foot traffic.

When it comes to Superman Strength, nylon carpeting is hands-down the winner. Nylon also has excellent resiliency, retaining its shape after compression, like footsteps.

When a protectant is used, nylon's stain resistance is excellent. This floor covering is a terrific choice for high-traffic floors!

Stain resistance

Kids are messy. We all have those “oops” moments when we might overturn a cup of coffee or spill a glass of red wine.

All rugs are treated with some protectant. However, polyester is also hydrophobic, meaning it won't absorb.

When treated with a protectant, polyester's stain resistance is enhanced.

Softness: a main attraction of carpeting

We love the carpet's soft, warm feeling underfoot. Both nylon and polyester come in styles that are softer than ever.
