Wool carpets can be found under natural look and berber carpet samples in the menu.
If you want a qualty carpet which is durable, naturally resistant to staining and ideal for heavy traffic area then wool carpet may be for you. Wool carpets are becoming more and more fashionable and popular today as they look great and last for years whilst maintaining their pile height and restoring to their original shape very quickly after being compressed by furniture etc.
Wool carpet is a common choice for childrens rooms as it is resistant to fire and provides a warm and cushioned surface for young ones to explore
Wool is one of the most widely used materials for carpeting all over the world and has stood the test of time because of its fantastic qualities. The natural look of wool carpet means it fits in with modern decor and it is easily cleaned which makes it ideal for households which are very busy.
Cleaning of wool carpets should be undertaken at least once a week by using a vacuum as this will ensure your carpet stays looking the best it can and will also prolong its life in the long run. Even though wool pile carpets are naturally resistant to flames it is still dangerous to expose the pile to flames and high temperatures although the ignition temperature is generally higher than that of man-made fibres.
Cord pile carpets are manufactured by yarn being woven without a cut being made to the pile. The tightness of these loops makes the difference between a harder wearing and rougher carpet and a lighter wearing but softer feeling carpet.
One of the most loved properties of cord carpets apart from being hard wearing are the range of colours and designs available which means that there will be one which will suit every room and every taste. Cord carpet is a firm favourite with busy family households and with landlords as the maintenance of these types of quality carpets is very low.
Homes which own pets are recommended to avoid this type of carpet as animals can catch the pile with their claws and teeth which can quickly damage it. When treated in the correct way some cord pile carpets can last anything up to 20 years, so it is essential that your flooring is vacuumed at least once a week. Many cord carpets are bleach cleanable which makes these carpets ideal for households with young children. Please check on each individual carpet to check wether it is bleach cleanable and if you need more advice then please give us a call and one of our consultants will be happy to advise you.
Twist pile carpets are the most commonly used carpets in the UK because of their fantastic qualities. A twist pile carpet will look fantastic in any room and because of the extensive range of colours and weights you will be sure to find something to suit your room and your budget. The comfortable and soft feeling underfoot is also a key reason why this is a popular choice with many households.
Many of our twist pile carpets are made from synthetic fibres which make them bleach cleanable so please check each carpet to see if this is a quality you can utilise. Make sure you vacuum your carpet at least once a week to help maintain its pile and durability. Twist pile carpets can range from general domestic to heavy domestic and their pile weights can differ greatly. Each carpet sample page will tell you the wear level of that particular carpet so you can make the best choice dependant on the level of traffic in each room.
Twist carpets are a firm choice with pet owners as animal hair cannot get trapped as easily in the pile as with many other weaves of carpet. Allergy sufferers may also find this pile easier to live with as it is generally more resistant against the trapping of allergens than other pile types.
Saxony pile carpets are popular because of their pile length and softness underfoot as well as their ability to transform a room with their appearance.
Saxony carpets are twist pile carpets which are densely weaved to provide a beautifully soft and luxurious feel underfoot. It is recommended that saxony carpets are used in rooms such as bedrooms and places where you want that extra comfort. Saxony carpets are not recommended for use in high traffic areas such as the living room or hallways as the pile is very soft and may leave impressions from footprints or cleaning. If you are intent on having a saxony pile carpet in one of these high traffic areas then a heather effect saxony may be the best choice as the light is reflected in a different way than a plain saxony so as to disguise any impressions much easier.
Cleaning and maintenance of saxony pile carpets may be slightly more difficult than that of other pile tyeps because of the thick long pile. Make sure you vacuum your saxony pile carpet on a regular basis which will remove dirt, dust and also help to fluff the fibres of the carpet so that it maintains its great look.
Berber pile carpets make any room look modern and stylish whilst offering great value as they tend to have a long life span.
This hard wearing carpet is woven as a cord/loop pile parallel along the length of the carpet and are available in many designs which can add that extra touch of class to a room. Berber carpets generally have flecks of different hues within the pile which add to the natural feel that you can get from this type of carpet. The thickness of the yarn used in the manufacturing of these carpets is often thicker which means they can stay looking fantastic for a very long time.
This type of carpet is commonly used in high traffic areas such as hallways, entrance ways, playrooms and home offices. Berber pile carpets are not recommended for use in homes with pets because they are woven in a similar way to cord/loop carpets which means animals can catch their teeth or claws in the pile and cause damage. Berber carpets are low maintenance when it comes to cleaning and some can even be bleach cleaned but this can be confirmed on each individual carpet page. It is recommended that you vacuum your berber carpet at least once a week to prevent build-up of dust and dirt.
