What is the Life Span of Polyester Carpet vs Nylon Carpet?
When replacing carpet you need to determine how long you want it to last then you can pick which material best fits your needs. If you are updating your home to sell it you don’t want to spend a lot, you just want it to look good so it sells. On the other hand if you are remodeling your home and don’t plan on selling it anytime soon then you want your carpet to last a long time. Typically polyester carpet lasts 5 to 7 years and nylon carpet lasts 15 to 20 years.
Of course you can make your carpet last longer by removing shoes at the doorway, regularly vacuuming and cleaning it.
