Carpets Galore at Floors for Less
There are many types of carpet available today, and deciding which is best for your needs can be challenging. Floors for Less serves home and business owners in Charlotte, Rock Hill, Gastonia, Concord and surrounding areas in North Carolina for all their carpet needs. Here is a brief primer on the different types of carpeting you will find at Floors for Less:
Common Types of Carpet
It is a fact that cut-pile carpeting is the number one seller in the US. It gets its name from how the looped fibers are cut along the top, thus causing the fibers to stand straight.
The next common type of carpet is called Saxony. Generally, Saxony products are made by twisting piles that have been cut and then heating the piles so they stand straight. This type of carpet will show vacuum marks, footprints, and anything else that crosses over it.
A hybrid of the Saxony is the textured Saxony. This flooring product does not show tracks because of its textured surface. This is a very popular choice for use in areas such as bedrooms and family rooms.
In formal areas, consumers often select plush carpeting, which is sometimes also known as velvet. A soft feel underfoot and uniform color throughout are the hallmarks of this carpet type. However, like the Saxony, tracks and footprints will be seen.
Other Types of Carpet
Frieze is often seen in commercial applications where there is a lot of foot traffic. The piles are twisted super-tight and this gives this type of flooring its high-durability level. You will not see track marks on this type.
Another popular choice for high-traffic areas is the multi-level loop pile. This has a random textured look because of the various heights of the cut piles. Very durable, but it can hold dirt in its smaller looped areas.
Berber carpet is growing in popularity for a variety of reasons. Because of its thicker yarn, it is very durable and suitable for high-traffic areas. Berbers, once expensive, are now much more affordable due to the use of less expensive fibers such as nylon and olefin. The more expensive wool fiber Berbers are still available, however.
As you can see, there are many options available today for consumers and business owners when it comes to carpeting. Floors for Less carries a huge selection of carpets, and we are sure that we can provide you with the exact type of carpet that you need and desire.
