Considering Carpet Fibers & Types

When shopping, consider where the carpeting will be placed and how much wear and tear it will endure. This will help you choose a carpeting material. Here is an overview of some of the most common options. For more, please see our article, “地毯买指南。“

Carpet Fibers

Keep in mind that manufacturers often use their own brand names for the materials in their products. The specification sheet for the carpeting should list the actual name of the fiber used.

carpet types
Compare multiple types of carpeting to find the pile and style that works best for your home.

Nylonis a good general-purpose material, and it can be used in most carpet styles found throughout the home, from low-profile Berbers to thicker piles. It’s stain-resistant and resilient, which means it quickly springs back after someone walks on it.

Polyesterhas a luxurious feel and is often used in thick-pile carpets. It’s a good choice for low-traffic areas such as bedrooms.

Triexta是杜邦开发的相对较新的光纤。这是聚酯的亚类,比传统聚酯更耐用和耐污染。并非所有地毯制造商都包括其产品线中的Triexta纤维。

烯烃或聚丙烯,抵抗水分和霉菌。烯烃通常用于室内/户外地毯。

Wool被认为是一种奢侈地毯的材料,因为它是一种厚实而柔软的天然纤维,触感。然而,它不像其他地毯类型一样耐污染。

地毯削减和建筑

You should also consider the carpet’s construction. Many manufacturers use the following terms:

环形。在环形桩中,光纤的两端都附着在背衬到后侧。这产生了一个具有良好耐磨性的低调地毯。在一些地毯上,环绕的簇是相同的高度,但具有多高度环的地毯也可用。这是高交通领域的好选择。

Texture.This is the opposite of loop construction and is often referred to as cut pile. The cut fibers produce carpets with deep piles that have a luxurious feel. This is a good choice for low- to moderate-traffic areas.

Pattern.这是循环和纹理簇的组合,产生具有可辨别模式的地毯。这些地毯通常用于正式设置。

弗里泽。地毯纤维扭曲,产生纹理的非正式外观。Frieze地毯适合高交通区。

在购买地毯之前

在选择地毯之前,测量将安装地毯的房间的宽度和长度,然后将两个数字乘以一起找到所需的平方英尺。然而,地毯由平方院子出售,因此将平方英尺的数量分为9×9,以估计您需要多少码。安装人员将随访官方测量。安装程序的测量很重要,因为它允许他设计了最小化接缝数的布局。

买地毯
使用地毯样品让您更好地了解地毯的外观和感觉下的脚下。

一旦你发现了一些你喜欢的地毯,就会把一些样品拿回家,看看他们如何与家具和墙面颜色一起去。您还可以看到地毯如何在全天内受不同的光线水平的影响。

在大多数情况下,地毯安装在垫上,称为“垫子”,使其在脚下更舒适。安装前,您需要使用经销商选择合适的垫子。有关地毯垫的更多信息,请参阅地毯买指南.

About Installing Carpeting

地毯经销商通常与自己的安装人员合作,或推荐合格的公司。在安排预约之前,最好锻炼安装的细节,包括与旧地毯有关。您可以选择自己撕下旧地毯或让安装人员处理该一部分作业。

Most old carpeting still ends up in landfills, but more and more is being recycled. Recycled carpet goes into a number of products, including composite lumber, roofing shingles, and automotive parts. Some manufacturers have their own recycling programs. You may be able to find a carpet recycler near you through theCarpet America Recovery Effort是一个促进地毯回收的行业范围的计划。

Before removing the old carpet, be sure to vacuum thoroughly to keep the dust levels down.

这里有一些事情要预计在安装过程中.

  • The carpet should arrive a day or two before installation so that it can become acclimated to your home’s temperature. Check it to make sure it’s the color and style you ordered.
  • The installers will need access to electricity and an area to set up and store equipment.
  • 安装人员将移动大多数家具,但您应该在抵达之前删除任何有价值或可遗忘的东西,例如灯具,电子产品,照片和个人纪念品。如果卧室铺有地毯,请铺床。
  • The installers will remove, or ask you to remove, quarter-round molding at the bottom of baseboards.
  • 与安装人讨论接缝的位置。尝试将它们放在不太明显的区域。
  • 在有木亚空间的客房,地毯将附着在房间周围钉的粘性条。在安装过程中,安装程序将使用地毯担架将地毯移动到位。拉伸有助于消除地毯的皱纹和涟漪。在一些情况下,地毯可以直接粘合到基板或垫子上。
  • 在安装期间保持窗户和门打开或提供一些其他通风来源。“新地毯”气味 - 来自地毯制造中使用的化学品的脱气 - 应在大约72小时内消失。如果您想要一个低偏压选项,请查找符合绿色标签加标准的地毯。这些具有最低的排放水平。

In the weeks and months after installation, you may see some shedding of carpet fibers. This is normal and should subside with regular vacuuming. But if you notice wrinkles or ripples in the carpet, contact the carpet dealer. That could be a serious problem that requires reinstallation.

By selecting the right carpet and making sure it’s installed correctly, you can add beauty to your home and enjoy years of trouble-free comfort.
