Quality carpet in Malvern, PA

What’s not to love about carpet? There are so many great benefits that all carpeting offers. It’s soft, safe, warm, beautiful, and quiet underfoot. Carpeting is also hypoallergenic, meaning it’s proven to trap airborne allergens and pet dander, which can then be removed from your home with regular vacuuming. Depending on the type of product you choose, your carpet may also be stain-resistant, budget-friendly, and energy-efficient.

Types of carpet

Cut pile carpet is the most popular type, featuring sheared fiber strands with exposed ends. It’s available in a variety of lengths and thicknesses, so you’ll have a range of options regardless of what you’re specifically looking for. The twist of individual strands in cut pile is key when making a decision⁠—tighter, heavier twist will add texture and durability to your carpet to help it stand up to matting and crushing.

Loop pile, on the other hand, features un-sheared loops of fiber that not only add extra durability but also create opportunities for pattern and texture. Tight, heavily twisted loops offer more resistance to matting and crushing. One potential issue to watch out for when choosing looped pile is pulled out loops, which, when snagged, can cause damage to your carpet.

Cut & loop pile combines the previous two types of carpet. Having both sheared and un-sheared fibers leads to patterned surfaces and artistic use of texture. No single type of carpet is better than the others⁠—your choice will largely come down to personal design preference.
