Best Carpet Fibers For Easy Carpet Cleaning in Chicago


    At ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons, we provide carpet cleaning services in Chicago, IL for all carpet types, but there are some things you should know that can make a DIY cleaning experience successful and less stressful.

    Whether or not you have pets or your floors have a high level of traffic can influence your decision. But, when it comes down to it, you should base your choice on the durability of the fibers and the ease with which the carpet can be cleaned. The following are three of the best choices for carpet fibers you may wish to consider:

    • Nylon fibers have been used for carpets since the 1960s. This carpet type is versatile and offers the greatest range of possibilities for carpet styles. During cleanings, the dye fades much slower than other kinds of fibers, and the material can be treated to resist most spills and stains. If you want style and durability for your office carpets, nylon is the way to go to minimize continual needs for carpet cleaning services.
    • Polyester (PET) fibers are softer than nylon fibers, though just as stain and fade resistant. While older polyester carpets have been disclaimed for their lack of resilience, these weaknesses have been significantly overcome with technological carpet-making advances. Polyester may be a good choice to minimize your office needs for professional carpet cleaning because of the tight, low sitting fibers that leave dirt sitting on top to be vacuumed away easily.
    • Polypropylene (olefin) fibers are touted for their color resiliency. The fibers aren’t dyed like nylon or polyester, but are instead solution-dyed, meaning the pigment is built into the fiber during manufacturing. The benefit of this is the permanence of the coloring which will never fade, even under the duress of sunlight, bleach, or harsh chemicals. Olefin carpets will remain bright and colorful or white and pristine with minimal surface cleaning.

    With the many types of carpets fibers narrowed down to three, it should be much easier to choose a type based on your home or business needs. For professional carpet cleaning services in Chicago, IL, you can call ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons.
