Making sure your carpet floors meet your requirements

Carpet floors
come in three primary styles, offering plenty of variety for your décor and lifestyle needs. Cut pile, for instance, is excellent for areas with high levels of traffic and can take on types such as Frieze, Saxony, Plush, or Shag carpeting.

Loop pile is another popular style, also suitable for highly traveled spaces. Level loop piles create comforting uniformity, while a multi-level loop pile can be used to create splendid patterns and dimensions.

Cut-loop pile, as the name suggests, combines both looped and cut fibers that offer a beautifully sculpted appearance in a variety of shapes. It even provides a dimensional color effect as well, which hides stains and dinginess very well.

There are several different fiber types, each with impressive characteristics:

  • Wool – The only all-natural carpet material, offering stain resistance, and beautiful color.
  • Polypropylene – Also known as olefin, this impressive fiber is both stain and water-resistant.
  • Nylon – Very durable, colorfast, and resilient, and perfect for busy homes.
  • Polyester – Soft, luxurious, and affordable, and is very easy to care for.
