If you are looking for a strong and durable carpet that is also soft and versatile, Triexta might just be the material you’re looking for. A relatively new fiber on the carpet market, Triexta also boasts good looks and affordability that give other carpets a run for their money.

Here at Floor Coverings International Orange County NY, we strive to keep our customers up-to-date on the latest flooring trends. Here we explore all you need to know about Triexta carpet, a synthetic fiber that outperforms most other carpet materials in durability, resilience, and yes, stain resistance! Read on to learn more.

Designed and created by DuPont, the same company that first invented nylon in the 1930s, Triexta is made in a process similar to that of polyester. Comprised of roughly 37% renewably sourced material, including a byproduct of corn, this carpet fiber is an eco-friendly flooring option. On top of that, manufacturers estimate that the polymer used to create Triexta requires 30% less energy than other synthetics, such as nylon and polyester. These savings are also passed onto consumers, with Triexta competitively priced to compete against the most popular carpet varieties available today.

Although it’s similar in construction to polyester, it is a much softer material, making it great for carpets. Its durability also puts it on par with nylon carpets, providing you with a long lasting carpet that you’ll love for the years to come!

Design and Applications

Homeowners will love Triexta for the versatility it provides at a relatively affordable cost. Not only is it incredibly resilient to foot traffic and the weight of furniture, it performs well in a variety of carpet styles, including plush and frieze. That means you can install any style of Triexta carpets anywhere you’d normally install carpet flooring, including hallways, stairs, and entryways.

Maintenance and Care

Triexta has stain protection built into the structure of each fiber so the carpets don’t require special coating or treatment. This ensures your carpets will stay looking new for many years with proper care. Regular vacuuming is the best way to remove dirt and particles from building up, and depending on the style of carpet you choose, more frequent vacuuming will be required. Most spills will only require cleanup with a damp cloth, and unless liquids dry and become stuck to the fibers, the use of any detergents or sprays will be minimal. This is an added benefit for homes with small children and pets!
