Carpet flooring is made of fibers that are cut, looped, or cut and looped. Pile varies among these styles that are, most often, both soft and durable. Carpet pile describes the density, or thickness, of the carpet fibers as well as the length of the individual fibers.
- Loop pile - fibers are bent in a loop and bound to their backing; level loop pile and multi-level loop pile styles are available
- Cut pile - the loops are cut at the tip of the fibers; Saxony, with its straight fibers and even finish, is the most popular type
- Cut and loop pile – this combination of the two piles creates different types of surface textures
Carpet floors are easy to clean when they’re made with Triexta, one of the newest fibers available. Look for Mohawk’s SmartStrand brand if you’re interested in this technologically advanced fiber. Wool, a traditional and top of the line material, is ideal for master bedrooms. Nylon is the most popular fiber. Olefin, also called polypropylene, works well in a basement while polyester is great for bedrooms.
