How to choose the type of carpet for your needs.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

Guide:

 

When considering installing carpet in your house, become familiar with the types of carpets available and the respective primary purpose of each such type.  There are three typical types of carpet:  1) Loop pile; 2) Cut pile; and 3) Cut and Loop pile, a combination of the latter two.

All the three types of carpet are the most typical-popular.  While, arguably, all three types stand to do fine for home use overall, each type serves a particular purpose more so than others, and they include the following:

  • For high-traffic use.  Of all three types, the loop pile carpet seems to best handle a high amount of foot traffic. As the name type indicates, this type of carpet encompasses loops of yarn that are very hard-wearing, strong and long-lasting.

  • For selection in a variety of styles and colors, with the camouflaging of foot marks/shoe marks coming in as a secondary feature.  Of all three types, the cut pile carpet seems to best handle the markings of shoes/feet, while being not limited to production in one color variety or style; such a carpet type commonly is available in a variety of colors and styles, yet maintains the feature of camouflaging such marks more than other types.  This camouflaging feature is primarily due to the fact that, as the name type indicates, this type of carpet encompasses cut-strand yarn.

  • For camouflaging dirt, and appearing in somewhat different varieties.  Of all three types, the cut and loop pile carpet seems to best handle the camouflaging of dirt overall, though it is often the case that there are not that many varieties of such a type of carpet compared to that of the cut pile carpet, among others.  This feature of camouflaging dirt overall is primarily due to the fact that, as the name type indicates, this type of carpet encompasses both loops and cuts of yarn, creating a pattern and different-color-shade mosaic of carpet that allows dirt to easily blend within without much visibility of it.

These are just some of the three typical types of carpet you should consider when planning the installation of your carpet.
