It's easy to judge the durability of carpet

 
Carpeting satisfies many needs. It can add bright color to room decor or bring softness and warmth to a child’s playroom. It can cover a basement floor while resisting mold and mildew. Whether your needs are practical or aesthetic, you can find a large selection of brands from top quality manufacturers at SJ FloorSolutions LLC. We are a carpet retailer in Carrollton, Texas, that also serves Dallas, FortWorth, Tyler, and Irving.
 

Fibers

 
The type of fiber used helps to determine the durability of a carpet. Wool is a traditional and premium fiber that, because of its cost, is usually installed in low traffic areas in the home. Nylon is the most popular type of fiber. It is resilient, stain-resistant, and able to retain its original look for many years. Triexta is a newer synthetic fiber that is as tough as nylon.
 

Density and height

 
A sample can be bent into a U-shape to judge density. Little of the backing shows on a dense, good quality carpet. The density of fibers along with their height, or the thickness of a carpet when measured from its backing to its surface, is called 'pile.' Loop pile, also called Berber, carpets are woven using a series of uncut loops. These loops can be cut to create a cut pile. Berber carpet tends to hold up better than a softer cut pile.

TPI

 
A rug's long-term performance can be measured by noting its turn per inch number. The higher the TPI number, the better the rug. The fibers are twisted around each other 4 times if the TPI is 4. Fibers usually have a TPI from 3.5 to 6.0. This number will be noted on cut-pile carpeting.
 

Padding

 
Padding provides structure and support, and without it, carpeting will degrade over time. A 7/16-inch thickness is appropriate for most carpets, but some Berber or short cut pile brands may need thinner padding. A rebond pad with an 8+ pound weight is often the best choice. Be sure to review the warranty, which may provide specific requirements for the padding.
