What is Acrylic?
Acrylic is a synthetic, or man-made, material that is used for a wide variety of purposes. Essentially a type of plastic, acrylic carpeting became popular in the 1960s, where it was seen as a substitute for wool due to its similar appearance and texture. Still in use today, acrylic carpeting has become a flooring favorite for its stain-resistant properties and its ability to readily absorb and retain color when dyed.
Benefits of Acrylic Carpeting
Acrylic carpeting has a number of benefits that make it a popular flooring option for many homeowners. Besides having a soft hand feel that is similar to wool, acrylic carpeting is also stain-resistant and fade-resistant. If placed in direct sunlight, this flooring will hold up exceptionally well. This is especially handy if you’ve chosen a bright color that will more obviously show fading.
On top of being fairly easy to clean, acrylic also wicks away moisture and is resistant to mildew. As such, this flooring will work well in entryways and other areas of the home that tend to be more exposed to potential messes.
