WHAT IS TRIEXTA CARPET?
We first feel we should explain what triexta carpet is as it is a relatively new type of carpet fiber available for purchase. Triexta is very similar to polyester. The root chemical of triexta is PTT which is the same as polyester. However, there are several differences between triexta and polyester that will share.
The color of triexta carpet is closer to the appearance of nylon than it is to polyester. You will notice a triexta carpet does not offer the same luster or shine you see from polyester. Instead, the surface of triexta carpet has a more matte appearance that is often associated with nylon.
One of the main benefits of triexta is its stain-resistance. The reason triexta is so stain-resistant is because it is hydrophobic and does not absorb liquids or moisture. This is because triexta features similar chemicals as the type of clothing that is “dry-fit” or moisture-wicking.
You can clean a common stain on triexta carpet with just water because the stain itself will not set deep into the carpet fibers. For deep cleaning, schedule an appointment with Champion Chem-Dry to remove soil and restore resiliency.
You will also notice that triexta carpet is fade-resistant to and maintains its color for several years after installation.
Triexta is much more eco-friendly than nylon or polyester because it is made from corn glucose instead of from petroleum. This is a major advantage when it comes to its impact on the environment and local ecosystem.
The best part of triexta is that the fiber is almost as durable as nylon carpet. Nylon carpet has long been considered the best carpet for durability but now in 2017 triexta isn’t far behind. The fiber is extremely resilient and able to be installed in high traffic areas and homes with several inhabitants and children and pets too.
Homeowners will love the benefits of triexta carpet even more when you discover the price is cheaper than nylon carpet. You have to pay more for triexta than for polyester but you receive the durability benefits of nylon too.
We recommend you call Champion Chem-Dry 12 months after your triexta carpet is installed to apply our stain protectant solution and remove bacteria and soil from beneath the surface of the carpet.
