Welcome to Carpet School. No tuition-fee needed.
Your carpet needs may be different from your friends or your neighbours. You may have kids and want something durable, or you may have dogs and want something that’s easy to clean. Or you may be looking to sell your house and just want a tidy appearance. Well, here’s the lowdown.
A synthetic material that’s budget-friendly and guards well against stains and moisture. A type of carpet to clean up a room or home before a sale, or if you’re on a tight budget.
The most durable carpet type with an eco-friendly source: sheep. It is great for any home, and is fantastic for hypoallergenic needs. Wool is one of the more expensive options, but great for long term plans.
Another synthetic material that is slightly more expensive than polyester, but will outlast polyester by a country mile. Cost-wise, this is a medium range carpet option. Great for high-traffic areas.
Twist style (all fabrics above)
Twist style is pretty self-explanatory. The carpet fibers are twisted together and lined up like a thick forest for your feet. This typically results in a soft carpet, often used in bedrooms and places of comfort.
Loop style (all fabrics above)
Loops, as you may have guessed are like twists, but looped back on themselves to create a fabric spring. This technique originated in North America, created by the indigenous people called the Berber tribe. This style is often used for style and pattern purposes.
The density of a carpet is fairly simple, but should still be considered. The more fibers you have, the denser the carpet. And the denser the carpet, the more durable and long-lasting. Ask Paul or Daniel, and they’ll be happy to further explain.
