What to know about carpet pile and fiber

Carpet pile refers to how the fibers or yarns are attached to the backing. The pile has everything concerning style, comfort, durability, and maintenance.

Fiber is the essence of a rug and will be the most critical decision you'll make. It affects performance and longevity.

Know that carpets have three main styles

  1. The uncut loop. These are stylish and durable. The tightly woven loops even keep spills from absorbing.??

An example is San Lucas/Carmel Valley. If you have kids or pets, ask to see looped constructions when shopping for carpet in Lakewood Ranch, FL.

  1. The cut-pile. Cut-pile refers to fibers being cut into various lengths. Our professionals will guide you to the right one in our vast inventory, which carries brands like Dream Weaver, Paradiso, Mohawk, Proximity Mills, Masland, and more.?

Each type of cut pile has extra durability and maintenance levels. For example, low-pile rugs are the most durable and easiest to keep clean. However, high-pile rugs, like the shag, require more TLC to clean, so you might want to keep them in low-traffic rooms.

Add some additional carpet features

This can include textures, such as plush or textured. Saxony, a medium pile rug, comes in both versions. Saxony Plush is best for bedrooms, while Saxony Textured works anywhere.

Frieze has longish fibers that are twisted so tightly they curl. This is a great carpet for the family room.
