How to choose the type of carpet for your needs.
/ Materials (See Below
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.
