The three familiar styles of carpeting are cut-pile, loop-pile and cut-and-loop-pile.
Cut pile carpeting has different forms. Plush or velvet pile is a dense
and soft; it shows footprints and vacuum sweeps; it can stand up to medium-light traffic. Saxony pile carpeting has a curled twist that makes it hardwearing and footprint hiding. Frieze has tightly twisted yarns that curl over giving it an informal look that wears well. The inch-plus length yearns
of shag carpeting are immediately recognizable. Shag is suitable for a low foot traffic area to preserve its loose, unkempt look. Mini-shag has a slightly shorter pile and more dense pile, making it easier to care for and better wearing.
Everyone is familiar with a Berber carpet – the poster child for level loop-pile carpeting. Multi-level loop pile combines lower and higher loops offering a textured, interesting surface. Loop-pile carpeting is long- and hard-wearing, making it the choice for commercial applications.
Cut-and-loop pile styles combine cut-pile yarns with tighter loop-pile
yarns. Sculptured Saxony carpet combines slightly longer cut yarns with lower loop pile yarns. Sculptured shag has a longer, wilder
cut yarn alongside the lower loop pile. Level cut-loop carpets mix cut and closed pile of the same height, often in patterns. Cut-and-loop pile carpets wear well and hide footmarks.
Carpet manufacturers have refined their materials to the point where polyester
carpet has soil repellent and release incorporated into the carpet fiber. Maintenance has been reduced to regular vacuuming, spot cleaning where necessary and periodic professional cleaning.
