You probably spend at least part of every day on a carpeted floor. You can see and feel its quality, which shapes your experience of the space it occupies. High-quality carpeting is comfortable, beautiful, and long-lasting.
There’s a lot to consider in selecting new carpeting for a home or business. A good place to start is with the purpose and function of the space. Some types of carpeting, while exquisitely lush and well-constructed, may be very susceptible to stains. Other types are more stain-resistant and durable. How much foot-traffic do you expect? What’s the desired lifespan of your carpeting? Will the space be used by children and pets?
High-grade carpeting offers the broadest selection of colors and styles. It’s composed of fabrics like nylon or wool. It’s the most durable, easiest to maintain, and looks newer longer. The best quality carpeting also comes with the best carpet backing. Backing is the underside of the carpeting; it gives the carpet stability and keeps it from wrinkling. Good backing is heavily constructed, tightly woven. It’s also easy on sensitive allergies and resistant to odors.
Lower-grade carpeting is made with a fabric such as polyester. It’s more susceptible to water damage, doesn’t conceal dirt as well, and wears out faster than a higher-quality product. With heavy use, lower-grade carpeting will need to be replaced in just a few years.
Strong quality indicators to look for while browsing are the face-weight, the pile density, and the tuft-twist rating. In each case, the higher the count, the better the quality. Face-weight measures the ounce of fiber per square yard. Heavy carpets are the most durable. High pile density carpeting handles more foot-traffic and is easier to clean than less dense carpet types. The tuft-twist rating measures how tightly the carpet filaments are twisted. Carpets with a high tuft-twist rating look brand-new year after year.
