The structure of the pile
Also, when buying a carpet, you need to pay attention to the pile, it can be a loop, split, or combined. The cut is called cut or trimmed pile. The product made in this way less durable, but has a refined appearance. But uncut loops are more resistant to wear.
Carpets with stitch pile are: Single levels are the all loops have the same height. This is the best choice for areas with increased operational load, as they are very durable and wear-resistant. Multi-level are loops of different heights, so you get a beautiful three-dimensional, embossed pattern. Carpet with a split pile has different properties depending on the length of the pile and the degree of torsion.
It is classified as follows: plush coating, low split pile, trimmed to one length. It has a smooth, soft fluffy surface. But it is very noticeable any dirt, as well as traces of shoes. Frieze – a high twisted yarn with a nap slightly higher than that of velour. On such a coating is not visible pollution, it is not crushed, but it is very difficult to clean. Saxony is a long and heavily twisted, thermofixed yarn. The villi always maintain their upright position, creating a woolen carpet effect with a grainy surface. Its second species is Euro Saxony, in which, the villi are especially thin. Shag is a variation of Saxony, but with a very long and coarse nap (30-40 mm).
These carpets are very expensive and have a luxurious appearance, but it is better to lay them in for bedrooms, living rooms, children’s rooms, as they are very difficult to clean.

The density of the carpet can be checked simply by bending it is as if the pile is blued through the bend. This means that the density is low and it is better to lay such a covering in a room with low traffic. The dense pile is easily restored even with a prolonged pressure of heavy furniture, but products with low density are softer and more comfortable.
