Carpet Giant has everything you need, including an excellent selection, helpful staff, professional installers, and lower prices on styles and brands of carpet.
Why Carpet is a Good Choice for Your HouseHere are a few characteristics about carpet that make this flooring type stylish and functional.
Cushions your feet.
Insulates floors against winter cold and summer heat.
Comes in many color choices.
Reduces noise in the house.
Creates a non-slip surface.
Requires little cleaning other than vacuuming. Professional cleaning once or twice a year.
Cut Pile--Like in tapestry, yarn is looped and tied to make wall to wall carpeting. For cut pile, the loops are cut, leaving a soft plush feel. This is a rich looking floor covering with a smooth, even surface.
Loop or Patterned Loop--The loops are not cut on this style, creating a varied appearance.
Patterned or Cut and Loop--This is a combination of both the other types, giving it a sculpted look.
Printed--Combining all three styles and dying methods, this stylish rug draws attention to itself with its varied patterns, textures and printing.
There are several types of carpeting to choose. They fall into two categories. Each has its own unique characteristics.
Synthetic Fibers--This is man-made from petroleum based products. It is a durable and affordable fiber that comes in three types.
Polyester--A low-priced floor covering that should be used in low traffic areas to extend the life of the fibers.
Nylon--Stain resistant, durable, holds its shape, and retains color.
Polypropylene or Olifen-A budget friendly fiber. It can, however, be susceptible to stains. It also seems to attract oil based spills quickly.
Natural Fibers--Organic, either animal or plant-based.
Wool--Made from the wool of sheep, it takes dye beautifully, and retains its shape and color. It tends to be a little more expensive.
Woven Naturals--A softer fiber, high-maintenance and more expensive. It does well in high-end houses where traffic is not constant and residents can offer more care for the flooring.
