Pure Wool Carpets are a luxury that adds significant value to your home.
Polypropylene is a less expensive synthetic fibre manufactured from man-made materials. Polypropylene carpetsare less expensive, colourfast and resist most stains. Usually manufactured into loop style carpets, they are great for low traffic areas.
Polypropylene carpets and are bleach cleanable which means for a active house hold where children or pets are using the area’s the ability to clean the carpets easily is a major factor to some people.
Of the synthetics, Polypropylene is less expensive than Nylon, stain-resistant and bleach-cleanable. Generally, most cold liquid stains will not stain a polypropylene carpet, although it should be noted that hot liquids present a different problem. If a hot drink for example is spilt, it is possible that the heat of the liquid, can in some circumstances simulate the original dyeing conditions and bond the stain. Also, as you might imagine, the fibre of these types of carpet can melt if subjected to sources of heat. For this reason, it would be unwise to use them in a room where you might have cinders spitting out from an open fire. On the other hand though, if the children drop a glass of Ribena, the stain should come out.
