PET Polyester Carpet

Pet Polyester Carpet in Living Room

What Is PET Polyester Carpet?

PET polyester carpeting offers a durable, eco-friendly solution that's perfect for your bedrooms, finished basements, and playrooms. PET stands for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and it's derived from recycled plastic containers, such as water bottles. Some experts say that leveraging these recycled materials in carpeting diverts millions of pounds of plastic from landfills. Though it starts as hard plastic, PET polyester carpet delivers a soft, comfortable feel underfoot that's comfortable for every member of your family.


Who says that going green has to be dull? The green makeup of 100% PET polyester carpet doesn't impact the aesthetic appeal in any way. With a full range of color and style options available, this eco-friendly style looks good in any space of your home. You can enjoy PET polyester benefits in a luxurious and bold-hued high-pile frieze just as much as a tightly-looped berber carpet in a cool, neutral tone.  

PET polyester is a solution-dyed carpet, which means the colored dye is added during the fiber creation process rather than after the fact like with natural fibers. This has the added benefit of fade resistance, so you don’t have to worry about extended periods of sunlight altering your carpet. 

Durability and Maintenance

With 100% PET polyester carpet you don’t have to trade in durability for eco-friendliness, as the recycled plastic it's made of actually adds strength. Keep in mind, though, that PET polyester is still not as durable as nylon. You may want to consider the following:

  • PET polyester carpet fibers can wear down and lose texture in high-traffic areas
  • Fibers can fuse together if compressed for long periods of time 

You can avoid this by installing in lower traffic areas and using carpet protectors under furniture legs

When it comes to maintenance, you'll appreciate that PET polyester carpet fiber s naturally protect against stains and moisture thanks to hydrophobic properties that cause it to repel liquid. This makes it a safe choice for the humid areas in your house or spots where occasional accidents can happen. (Think of your child’s bedroom, where she snuck in that mug of hot cocoa late last night.) You'll have no fear of mold, mildew, or lingering pet odors. 

To keep your PET polyester carpet in good condition, vacuum at least once a week and spot-clean when spills and accidents happen. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for care and cleaning. 


PET polyester carpet has the same life expectancy as traditional polyester carpet, which means you’re investing in your floors for years to come. Like all flooring, its lifespan depends on a few factors, including:

  • Whether it was properly installed
  • The quality of the materials used
  • The amount of wear and tear it receives
  • How well and often you maintain it
  • Whether you follow the manufacturer's guidelines

To make sure you get the most from your new carpet, look into the warranty that accompanies it. The warranty protection at Carpet One Floor & Home ensures you have peace of mind and beautiful carpeting for years to come. 


A quality installation is key for optimal life and performance, so experienced pros are the recommended way to go. Professional installers save you the headache of tracking down the necessary tools that carpet installation requires, plus they will ensure the final product is a gorgeous floor that's installed properly. 

PET polyester carpet installation requires a clean, dry floor to begin. An underlay or carpet pad goes down first, adding softness and protection for your feet. Flooring installation professionals then move to the carpet itself, measuring and cutting to perfectly fit your space before tacking it down and adhering it to the floor. 

PET Polyester vs. Polyester Carpet

No matter which one you choose, both polyester carpet options will outfit your home with similar benefits, like moisture and stain resistance. The most significant difference between PET polyester and standard polyester carpet is their chemical makeup. Polyester comes from the combination of two chemicals: purified terephthalic acid (PTS) and monoethylene glycol (MEG). The eco-friendly version known as PET polyester is composed of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) pieces from recycled plastic containers, making it perfect for eco-conscious shoppers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is PET polyester carpet safe? 

Yes! PET polyester carpet is a safe, eco-friendly option for your home. The recycled material used for PET polyester is derived from plastic water bottles and other containers featuring high-quality resins that previously met U.S. Food & Drug Administration requirements. Plus, you won't find any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in your 100% PET polyester carpet.

Is polyester carpet good for dogs?

Yes! Polyester is a pet-friendly carpet that works best in areas of your home that see medium traffic. The moisture and stain resistance make inevitable situations like messy accidents and muddy paws easy to clean. Not to mention, polyester fibers are nonallergenic and won't retain odors. 

What is BCF PET polyester carpet?

BCF stands for bulk continuous filament. PET polyester carpeting can be constructed in two ways: with short, stable fibers a few inches long or with BCF. BCF PET polyester carpet features sections of carpeting made with one long, continuous fiber. Its higher resistance to pulling can come in handy especially when you haven’t had time to trim your cat’s claws.
