The front layer of carpet: types, characteristics
Sound absorption, durability, appearance, comfort carpet, ease of cleaning depend on the features of the pile. This explains the need, when choosing a coating, to pay increased attention to its shape, size, material (most often the villi are made of flocked, polypropylene, polyamide or wool yarn).
Wool, as the name implies, is created using natural raw materials, so it is quite expensive. Sometimes right after the installation of eco-friendly carpet, the smell of the sheepskin is felt in the room. It will take some time (about one or two months) for it to disappear. Wool can absorb up to 30% moisture (of its weight) and at the same time, it feels completely dry to the touch. The wool item looks very elegant but can accumulate static electricity. The quality of the wool carpet is directly dependent on the type of wool, spinning method, processing technology. The most advantageous option is the rolled material, which contains both wool (about 80%) and polyamide (20%) at the same time. Speaking about its advantages, experts pay attention to durability, antibacterial properties, as well as all the advantages,
Polypropylene pile is the most budget option. It is pleasant to the touch, but, alas, does not differ in wear resistance. If you decide to choose a carpet for the bedroom, this is a good solution, but experts do not recommend laying it in the nursery, the hallway.
Carpet from polyamide (nylon, kapron) threads is most often chosen for the house: an apartment or a cottage. This is a decent middling with excellent wear resistance. Its fibers are porous, quite flexible, with high resistance to crushing. The yarn is dyed in the most various shades and colors. Among the disadvantages is the ability to absorb moisture, accumulate an electrostatic charge. A flocked thread is tough, durable. Such carpet with ease transfers washing, damp cleaning.
If we talk about the types and shape of the pile, it is worth mentioning the loopback, combined, split (sheared). The latter is exceptionally soft, pleasant to the touch. The loopback carpet is recommended to be mounted in areas exposed to increased loads (for example, in the hallway). Combined appreciate for its bulk grain texture. Get it by combining loops of different heights. Due to this, a spectacular texture is formed on the surface, interesting voluminous graphic drawings. Do you want to choose the carpet correctly and not take care of repairing the floor for the next 4-5 years? Then remember: the higher the napped pile, the faster it will come as a result of loads, and the carpet will lose its aesthetic appearance.
