1. Nylon. When it comes to carpet fibers, nylon stands out for its ability to withstand heavy foot traffic. It is also easy to remove stains from nylon carpets. Although some care is needed if you’re DIY. Nylon carpets would easily be our number one choice for its cost-effectiveness, durability and its resilience to staining.

2. Polyester is inherently resistant to stains; however, certain additives used in the manufacturing process may have a tendency to absorb stains. For instance, a polyester blend containing a significant amount of cotton may be more susceptible to showing stains compared to a polyester blend incorporating olefin. Easily our number two choice, synthetic material that breathes and fairly easy to remove stains.

3. Olyfin. For areas that are prone to moisture, stains, or mildew, olefin (polypropylene) is the number three choice. This fiber is highly resistant to staining, making it popular for outdoor areas or basements that may be damp. Its resilient, colorfast, stain-resistant and highly durable,.

4. Linen. Linen is a highly delicate fabric that requires special care. To avoid damaging the fibers, it is crucial to refrain from scrubbing the fabric. Additionally, it should be noted that linen is not stain-resistant. We are all too familiar with the potential disaster of spilling ketchup on our pristine white tee-shirts. Well, your sofa is no different! However, in case of stains, spot cleaning can be employed immediatley to the stain, which is imperative for successful removal.

5. Wool. is a natural fiber known for its exceptional quality and softness. However, it can be prone to stains. Which means that most stains must be treated immediatley, most carpets are 80% Wool and 20% synthetic can be removed using water and a non bleaching approved spot spray. In our opinion its better to buy 50% wool and 50% polyester. Thank us later. 

6. quite possibly the most luxurious carpet on the market today! normally comes in a grey colour and its so plush. Although not stain resistant and doesn’t really react well to water, they can be cleaned with a dry foam or an aerosol, but in our opinion bottom of our list
