Aricarpets – Things to Consider When Purchasing New Carpet

With the wide variety of Aricarpets styles available today it’s a good idea to start by knowing the basic Aricarpets characteristics, marks of a quality carpet, fibers available and how to choose the best floor carpet for that room or living space:

The most common type of floor carpet is the loop style Aricarpets which come in four variations:

  • Level-loop Pile (loops are of equal height)
  • Multilevel Pile (two or three variable heights of simple or complex design)
  • Cut Pile (sculptured carpet in which the loops have been cut to create a more sophisticated looking carpet)
  • Cut and Loop Pile (a combination of loop and cut pile)

Some examples of these common carpet types are the Berber (multilevel pile) the shag (cut pile) and the most common wall to wall carpet (level – loop).

Carpet tiles are also becoming increasingly popular. Installation is similar to the standard floor tiles. They can be easily cut to fit, mixed and matched to provide a personal design accent, and can be a creative solution to an unusual space where an area rug is needed.

Quality Aricarpets

Determining the quality of the carpet is important in that it is directly related to how well it will hold up in the home.

The most important guide to buying quality carpet is to look for is the density or loops/yarns per square inch. The greater the density; the better quality. A simple test, known as the “grin” test can performed to identify a carpet’s density.

Fold a carpet sample backwards as if folding a piece of paper backward, look at the crease to see how much backing is showing, the less backing you see means the better the carpet quality, in other words, the longer it will retain its comfort..

Types of Aricarpets Fibers

Carpet fibers are make of both synthetic and natural materials. Price, style and quality is related the fibers use and the complexity of design. Whatever option, always choose the highest quality within the budget to ensure the best performance for the longest period of time.

Not the best choice of flooring carpet for areas of high humidity. Since it has a tendency to absorb moisture and develop a consequential odor.
  • Olefin Carpet: Otherwise know as polypropylene, this carpet fiber is make of a plastic polymer. And has easily become the most in demand for carpet manufactures. Due to its superior stain resistance, color retention and consumer affordability. One word of warning however, Olefin is a oil magnet, any oil base spill will literally blended with this carpet fiber and will be impossible to remove.
  • Nylon Carpet: This is the most common of carpet fibers and is perfect for most home applications. Nylon is the material most advertised by familiar manufacturers such as Dupont, Allied and Monsanto. Nylon has withstood the test of time and is available in a wide variety of price points. Its strongest feature is it’s ability to restore its shape after repeated pressure and thus is perfect for high traffic areas.
