In reply to Polyester Carpet,?? by John 2000 on March 5th, 2000 11:44 AM [Go to top of thread]

Holly C,

Polyester, info the sales guy didn't mention: If
you are using a Polyester product in a potential
barefoot area (i.e., bedroom, bath entrance, kids'
room) there is a problem with the natural oils
from your body. Polyester products then to lose
their luster (color sheen) and show those traffic
areas where little and big feet have walked a path.
The oils seems to break down with time fiber structure
and leaves a dull, crush looking path.
I have study many carpets and their fiber structure,
and this is the only major down fall with polyester
Suggest, everyone to wear socks. Also, protect any
entry areas from outside oils carried on shoes.
(Kitchen grease, Garage, asphalt drives, etc.)
Suggest walk off mats at these areas.
