3 of the best types of carpets for repelling stains
Carpets that are labeled “stain resistance” means the fibers in the carpet repel liquids. Stain “treatment” means a spray has been applied to your carpet which coats the fibers making them stain resistant. When you are buying a new carpet for your home, look for the carpets that are labeled “whole fiber stain resistance.” This type of carpeting has been treated all the way through. The fibers and the backing of the carpet a stain resistant.
Sometimes natural fiber carpets are the best. Most synthetic carpets today are treated with stain resistant, but that wears off over time. Wool is a natural stain resistant. Another benefit of wool is it is fire resistant. Keep in mind that wool is more expensive, but you won’t regret buying a wool carpet.
Consider a spill trap for your carpets. This is a barrier between your carpet and the carpet pad. It prevents liquid from seeping into the carpet pad. With a spill trap in place, it will make it much easier to clean up those stains. Spill traps save time and money and help to preserve the life of your carpet.
