At Floor Coverings International Flagstaff, we work with families in the greater Flagstaff, Sedona area to find their dream carpeting. Loop pile carpeting is especially popular in Flagstaff due to its durability and style. Here is some more information about this strong, gorgeous carpet option to help you decide if it’s right for your home.
What’s Loop Pile?
Most of the carpeting found in American homes today is tufted carpet. This simply means that it was manufactured by injecting yarn into a backing material, as opposed to woven together with no backing material. There are two kinds of tufted carpeting: loop pile and cut pile. These words refer to the final state of the yarn after it is injected into the backing material. In loop pile carpets, they form rows of loops whereas in cut pile carpeting, each loop is cut into two strands.
Strength and Resilience
Loop pile is the preferred carpeting type for areas of the home with high foot traffic. This durable carpeting type derives its strength from its loops. When you cut the loops to form cut pile, you sacrifice durability for comfort. Loop pile is so strong that it is often found in office and retail environments. But don’t worry—it is comfortable enough for your Flagstaff home.
Versatility and Style
You can find loop pile carpeting in a variety of colors and textures, from deep and earthy Berber to bright and funky Sisal. At Floor Coverings International Flagstaff, we carry hundreds of loop pile options to choose from.
