Types of Carpet Fiber
Traditionally, nylon has been the most popular type of carpet fiber—it’s durable, soft, stain-resistant and holds up to wear over time. Additionally, nylon resists rot and retains its color. With proper care, nylon carpet can last 12 to 15 years, so it lasts longer than most synthetic fibers.
Types of Carpet Pile
Cut pile carpet is a soft, easy-to clean option that’s created by shearing off exposed fibers. You can select a variety of cut-pile styles based on the different lengths, thicknesses and angles of the shearing. Additionally, unique looks are created by using different treatments on the thread before and after it is inserted into the carpet backing. This type of carpet pile works well when an entire house is carpeted because it blends well from room to room.
You’ll notice some footmarks and vacuum trails on cut-pile carpet, but this varies depending on the twist of the fibers. Individual fibers contain twist that helps cut pile carpet stand up against matting and crushing. The heavier the twist, the more resistant the carpet will be to matting. Plus, high twist also helps create texture that hides wear and dirt, which is always good!
Although cut-pile carpet is more popular than loop-pile carpet, it isn’t as durable and will need to be replaced more often. Cut-pile carpet comes in a variety of styles: frieze cut aka shag, textured and sculpted. Can you believe you have so many amazing options?
