The benefits of ‘modern lifestyle’ carpets
In the last 5 years we have seen a massive shift towards the sale of more polypropylene carpets over more tradition wool blends. They are of much better quality than they used to be and are extremely good value.

Stain resistance and bleach cleanable carpets
Polypropylene is not dyed to a particular colour, it is made using yarn that is manufactured from the chosen colour. Like a stick of rock it has the colour all the way through.
Polyprop is bleach cleanable- you can clean using a bleach solution without removing the colour. Remove the stain not the colour.
Polypropylene carpets are the best option for a customer who has had a bad experience with carpet moth. Over the last 20 years we have seen a dramatic increase in the occurrence of carpet moth, it seems the little ‘blighters’ have become immune to treatments. Polypropylene is great because being a man-made fibre it is not part of the diet of the moths.
Polyprop is much cheaper than wool blends. The cost of Wool has increased by about a third in the last few years. Polypropylene has matched inflation and has dramatically improved in performance, looks and feel. A good quality 2-ply polyprop carpet is a viable alternative to a good wool carpet, saving about 25% on a like for like basis.
