When contractors help their clients choose a loop pile carpet, they have a range of beautiful and durable options that will work for both commercial and residential locations. However, they decide for sure on a looped carpet, it’s helpful for clients to understand what exactly looped carpet is.
Loop pile carpets are not sheared like cut piles are. Instead of woven into the backing and then cut, they are left as loops. Loop pile carpet comes in many different thicknesses and weights. The best part about loop pile carpet is that there are plenty of patterns and textures to choose from. Loop pile carpet works very well in high traffic areas like offices, family rooms, game rooms and clinics.
When cutting seams on loop carpet installation, it is important that it is done correctly. To seam two pieces of Berber carpet together, installers need to use a carpeting strip cutter to do it right. Using a straight edge, the installer presses down and runs the edge of the cutter along it through the carpeting. Loop pile carpets must be cut from the top, between rows of loops. If the cut line does not run between two rows of looped pile it can make the seams look rough and they won’t match up properly. This will make the seam more visible and the clients will not be pleased.
