About Carpet

The first thought that comes to mind about carpet is that it is soft and warm. Many homeowners still choose carpet over other flooring options for their home. At Angelos Carpet One Floor & Home, we’ve got what you need. What separates a carpet from a rug? Carpets are installed wall to wall and cover the entire floor of a room, where a rug only covers part of the floor.

Types of Carpet

Before choosing a carpet for your home there are some characteristics you may want to consider in your decision.  Color plays a major factor in your decision because the lighter the carpet the brighter your room but the dark the carpet the easier it is to hide stains and pet fur. Pile styles are also important. Carpet pile is the density of fibers that make up a carpet. What are the different pile types? Cut pile has fibers that are cut at the ends making the carpet denser. Loop pile is the opposite, where no fibers are left at the surface and are in a series of loops, giving the carpet an even look. Multi-level loop staggers the height of the loop fibers to create an uneven surface. Cut and loop piles also provide an uneven look but also give texture to the carpet and hide dirt.

Carpet fibers can be made out of different materials which impacts the look and feel of the carpet. It also determines the stain and matting resistance as well as long term durability. Nylon and polyester carpets are synthetic fibers that are durable and soft. Wool fibers are natural, and are found in most carpets.

Level loop carpet has a dense, low profile, which makes it great for heavily-trafficked areas.
