We are all looking for ways to make our lives easier with our busy schedules especially when it comes to household chores and tasks that need to happen but take time away from other pressing matters. We try to find the easiest and quickest way to stay on top of things so that the small stuff doesn’t get in the way of bigger things we rather spend our time on. This is why “hacks” have become so popular.
If you are looking to purchase new carpet you are probably thinking a number of things and one of them is about the care and maintenance. A popular question among carpet buyers is what carpet is the easiest to maintain or keep clean? The answer to this question will depend upon the type of lifestyle you have. There are many great durable carpets on the market that hold up better than others and the answer as to which will be best in your home depends on what goes on in your home.
Here are some carpet fibers that are easy to keep clean:
Polypropylene- this is a more budget friendly material for carpets so if you are not looking to spend a huge amount of cash this may be best. This material is actually used in about 85-90% of carpets today. A pure 100% polypropylene carpet is on the lower end of carpet types and may not have the longevity you need however. There are many polypropylene blends on the market even ones that contain wool upping the longevity while still being easy to maintain.
Nylon Frieze- this may be one of the easiest carpets to keep clean. Many people with young families and pets like to purchase nylon frieze for their homes. Nylon frieze is a good choice for high traffic homes.
Nylon- pure nylon is a great choice if you are looking for an easy maintenance carpet. Nylon costs a little more but is very durable with a long lifespan and is very easy to clean.
Of course how easily a carpet cleans up also depends on the proper care. To keep your carpet at its best you want to vacuum regularly not sporadically, clean spills as soon as they happen, and have a regular professional carpet cleaning. If you take care of your carpet correctly for the type that you have it will last and look great for as long as possible.
