LOOP - Loop carpets are marked by a continuous uncut surface that resists crushing and matting. Loop carpets are the most appropriate for commercial applications, but berbers are popular loop carpets for the home.
CUT - The loops of a cut pile are cut to expose the yarn ends. Cut piles come in a variety of styles including:
Velvet Plush: a rich and luxurious surface perfect for less traveled rooms such as a formal dining or living room (since it will show footprints)
Saxony: great for a less formal room such as a den (but which also shows footprints)
Textured Saxony: its sculpted design hides dirt and footprints and is tough enough for any room
Frieze: a smart choice for any high traffic area because it hides dirt and footprints exceptionally well.
CUT & LOOP - Cut and loop carpets combine these two piles, usually in a sculpted pattern, and are good in casual settings. Each carpet is different and each room size is different. Carpet has to be custom cut for each job and will show seams. Old carpet cushion can sometimes be utilized, but installing new carpet cushion will increase the longevity and warranty of your new carpet.
Frequent vacuuming and steam cleaning will also increase the life of your carpet.
