Homeowners have certain expectations about quality and lifespan when considering the purchase of new carpet. At Beseda Flooring & More, we’re more than aware of your expectations which is why we carry a huge variety of different types of carpet. We wholeheartedly believe carpet should fit your budget and lifestyle all while enhancing your personal decorating aesthetic. Below, we've included some of the most important insights on carpeting for you to familiarize yourself.
Most carpet styles are divided into two main types, primarily defined by the way the fibers attach to the backing material. With loop pile, the fibers of the carpet are bent into loops. This type is most resistant to stains and has a longer lifespan due to its excellent durability. However, the low profile of this type of flooring means that there is little in the way of cushion underneath your feet. Level loop carpet is best known as Berber, and features short loops that do very well under heavy traffic. Carpeting that has a patterned texture, also known as multi-level loop carpeting, has loops that differ in height. This is what actually creates the pattern.
