Plush Or Cut-Pile
Loops trimmed off with yarn bundles standing straight up. Repeated pre-shearing creates a luxurious appearance. A great ‘whole house’ carpet, medium durability. Popular varieties include saxony plush: short, densely packed tufts; textured plush: decoratively versatile,
textured surface helps hide footprints and vacuum marks; velvet plush: lightly twisted cut-piles with a uniform color and luxurious appearance that’s ideal for formal areas.
Newer berber look with color and interest of traditional loop berbers and the great plush feel of thick, cut-pile carpet. Very versatile. Ideal for casual rooms and kids rooms. Subtle color flecks help hide soil.
High, closed level loops stand upright, creating a nubby, rugged texture that looks natural and handcrafted. Tight loop texture helps hide foot and vacuum marks. Uncut loops tend to wear better than cut-pile.
Combined cut and looped fibers provide a variety of surface textures or carved/sculptured effects for medium durability. Multiple colors and levels hide dirt and footprints in formal or informal areas. Also available in solid colors.
Versatile styles in a durable, long-wearing surface pile engineered for high-traffic areas. Captivating color choices and textured surfaces suitable for professional and practical installations.
There are six main types of fibers used in carpet and three other, lesser known types; acrylic, nylon, olefin (polypropylene), olefin blends of nylon/olefin, polyester, wool, sisal, sea grass and coir. Nearly all carpet, about 96% of carpeting is made from synthetic fibers. Synthetic, or man-made, carpet is more resistant to stains and less expensive than natural fiber carpet. The natural fibers make up about 4% of the remaining carpet that is used and they are naturally crush resistant which helps in high traffic areas.
Acrylic fiber carpet is the artificial wool of the industry, providing the look and feel of wool at a fraction of the cost, the man-made fiber resists static electricity, moisture, mildew, fading, crushing, staining, and sun damage, but it isn't durable enough for high traffic areas.
Nylon is the workhorse of the flooring industry. It is the strongest carpet fiber with optimal durability, has excellent abrasion, insect and chemical resistance and it is less apt to mold, mildew or rot compared to other carpet fibers. Nylon carpet can last up to between 12 and 15 years. Nylon has tremendous color retention, is static free and easy to maintain. It maintains fiber height and it resists soiling and staining. Nylon is by far the most popular carpet with 90% of home owners opting to have it installed. When both residential and commercial use is considered, 65% of all users opt to have it installed. Nylon fiber carpet is in the middle of the pack as far as price is concerned; generally being less expensive than wool but more expensive than polypropylene and polyester.
Olefin (Polypropylene) Carpet
Following nylon, olefin (polypropylene) fiber carpet is the most used and it makes up 80% of all commercial carpet installations. Olefin fiber is highly resistant to fading, making it a good option for carpet exposed to large windows with direct sunlight. It is abrasion, mildew and moisture resistant. Olefin is easy to clean. It can be cleaned with bleach when manufacturer specifications state if is safe to do so. Olefin is suitable for high traffic areas when nylon is not an option, but it isn't the industry standard winner for crush resistance as some cuts are more prone to matting and crushing. Olefin generally costs less than nylon, polyester and wool.
Olefin Blends Carpet
Olefin blends are typically made from nylon and olefin (polypropylene). This blend has great resiliency, but different fibers can resist and/or absorb stains differently, leaving one with a carpet that tends to stain unevenly. Due to this dynamic, the stains can stand out prominently.
Polyester has a luxurious feel and it can look great, but it typically does not last as long as other carpet fibers as it does not maintain its fiber height over a long lifespan; therefore, it is less optimal for high traffic areas and in rooms where shifting weight is a part of the normal, frequent use of an area. Polyester can fade when installed in rooms that are exposed to bright sunlight. Polyester is easy to clean. It is resistant to water soluble stains and durable against abrasions.
Polyester carpet also comes in a recycled version. Polyester/PET (Polyester/Polyethylene Terephthalate) is the environmental darling of the carpet industry. Most carpet made with this fiber is made from recycled bottle caps so it is inexepensive compared to other carpet fibers; especially wool and nylon. It is a fiber that offers bright color selections and it is available in many textures. It is more stain resistant than nylon carpet and at least as resistant to mold and mildew. For those with allergy tendencies, it may fit the bill as it is non-allergenic. Because Polyester/Pet is plastic, before using in an entire home it is advised to first try it in one room to see how you like it.
A beauty to behold, wool is a purely natural product; luxurious, strong, and stain resistant. Wool is very durable. It maintains its fiber height very well. Soft to the touch and very dense, wool has a more comfortable feel than other carpet fibers. Wool hides soil better than synthetic fibers due to its opacity. Synthetic fibers are less opaque, so their strands are more clear and soil can be seen through them. Available in a large array of colors, it is an excellent choice for its rich and luxurious appearance. Compared to synthetic fiber carpets, it may require care to maintain its beauty over a long lifespan. It is susceptible to fading when exposed to sunlight. Wool has a low resistance to stains and to many of the chemicals used to remove stains. Because wool is a natural fiber, it can attract and suffer damage from beetles, moths and other insects.
Sisal carpet is made from fiber derived from the agave plant. Stronger and more durable than other natural fibers, it is earthy and rough-textured like jute. Sisal carpets usually contain jute, hemp, sea grass, and coconut fibers.
Sea Grass Carpet
Sea Grass carpet adds a wonderful natural look and feel to any room. It can be damaged by chemicals and is susceptible to mold and insects.
Coir carpet fiber is extracted from the husks of coconuts. Coir is one of the most environmentally-friendly fibers. It is tough, hard wearing and versatile, with natural aesthetic appeal. Coir carpet is available in rich and bold textures.
