Types of Carpet


berberBerber carpet got its name from the bulky wool, which was textured and used by a tribe in North Africa, "The Berber Tribe". The Berber carpet, which we have today, follows this same tradition as it is made of bulky, freckled yarns, which create a beautiful carpet.

 

friezeFrieze is a smart choice for high traffic areas in your home. Tightly twisted yarns give friezés a contemporary look and make it a smart choice for any active part of your home. This style is less likely to show vacuum marks or footprints than other cut pile styles.



loopsLoop carpet has complete yarn loops that stand upright. Loops tend to wear better than cut-pile carpets because the yarn tips are not exposed. With these, yarn wears on the sides, not the ends, and the twist is automatically maintained.



plushPlush carpet, which is also known as cut-pile carpet. The looped ends of the plush carpet's fibers are evenly sheared off during manufacturing and twisted in the same direction to make the carpet perfectly flat. This process gives plush carpet its luxurious, rich look. Plush carpet often comes in a single color.

Carpet Characteristics


FOOTPRINTS: All carpet will exhibit footprints or depressions caused by foot steps. Some Texture may reveal less shading but all carpets wil exhibit footprints to some degree.

HIGHLIGHTING/SHADING: Highlighting and shading are differences in light reflection between surface areas and are not defects. Some carpet construction exhibit more footprints, vacuum/sweeper marks, highlighting or shading than others.

SEAMS: There is no such thing as an invisible seam. While some carpet styles hide the seams more easily than others, the seams can always be located by an experienced professional. Even the carpet industry definition of seam, the line formed by joining the edge of two pieces of carpet, indicates a visible line. Many customers feel that seams should be invisible but this is often unrealistic. Many times a seam is more visible immediately following installation do to the stretch which is placed on the carpet. This stretch allows the carpet backing to line up with the seam tape causeing the seam to peak. This peaking will subside as the carpet relaxes.

SHEDDING: Shedding is a normal characteristic of staple fibers and should decrease with vacuuming over a period of time.

MATTING OR CRUSHING: Texture change known as matting or crushing will occur in all carpets. Matting is usually the result of the untwisting of the yarn and intermingling of the yarn tips and is the result of foot traffic. Matting is not considered a manufacturer defect.

LOCALLY CAUSED SOILING OR STAINING: Stain resistance does not mean the carpet won't stain or soil. Locally caused staining or soiling is not a defect in the material.
