Carpet flooring, above all else, should be comfortable. While over 90 percent of carpet sold today is made from synthetic materials, knowing more about the different categories of carpet flooring can help you conceptualize which would be best for your home. The team at FLOOR MAX follows a careful process when installing any floor, but certainly for carpet installation. We ask that you keep touch-up paint available for after the installation is complete, as certain wall spots near the floor might be scratched, though we strive to keep your home and belongings intact.
- Loop carpet, also known as Berber carpet, is made by yarns that are threaded through the mat, creating loops that are uncut. The pile can vary from low, tight loops to plush, high loops. Its natural layering and shading is a great option for busy areas, as it conceals dirt and debris. Accidental spills sit on top of the carpet, rather than sinking down into the base
- Similar to the level loop, the cut loop carpet involves threaded yarn that has later been cut. Cut loop carpet has a beautiful and visually interesting texture, which fits well in both classic and contemporary homes alike. Cut loop tends to look worn quicker than level loop, but a brief vacuum job can bring it right back to life.
- Think of pattern carpets as a combination of level and cut loop. Pattern carpets provide a more durable flooring that handle foot-traffic well, while also giving its design a chance to shine in more subtle rooms. The combination of level and cut loops give a good balance of comfort and durability.
- Plush, also considered “Velvet Carpet,” is a dense carpet that provides a formal and luxurious ambiance. Often highly-reflective, plush carpet is also offered delustered yarns to avoid lingering vacuum streaks.
Wool carpets, offered in an array of rich colors and patterns, is a natural carpet that is durable, flame-resistant and environmentally-friendly. Manufactured from short strands of sheep’s wool, it is a tough material that lasts for decades. While synthetic carpets often lose their vibrancy or thickness, wool is naturally coiled, meaning it springs back up even after heavy feet or furniture. Wool is easily dyeable and resists stains and dirt better than synthetic carpets can. This carpet insulates the floors and reduces heating costs, which should come as no surprise, as wool is known for its warming properties. Wool is also extremely helpful in the summer months, as it helps moderate humidity by absorbing lingering water vapor.
