Triexta (Sorona, SmartStrand) – Carpet Cleaning

About Triexta Carpets

Triexta is a new synthetic fiber used in carpeting that has gained popularity in recent years. Triexta is a modified polyester that has been designed to offer improved durability and stain resistance. In the past, polyester was marketed as an inexpensive substitute for more expensive nylons and wools. However, early carpets made with polyester fibers were problematic due to their high static attraction, which would attract pill and fluff from other fabrics and adhere to the fibers.

Today, Triexta carpets have reduced or eliminated the problematic characteristics of earlier polyester carpets, such as pile crush and static attraction. Unlike earlier versions of dispersed dyed nylons and polyesters, Triexta does not require the use of chemical stain and soil applications to enhance or maintain the stain resistance performance of the product. Triexta carpet cleaning methods are very beneficial.

One of the benefits of polyester, similar to solution-dyed nylon, is that it cannot absorb moisture. This means that Triexta carpets are highly resistant to staining from foreign dyes such as cordials, hot black tea, and red wine. Triexta carpets are also soft to the touch, making them comfortable to walk on.
