Frequently Asked Questions About Carpet

The different types of carpet fibers available at AJ Rose Carpets & Flooring are polyester, polypropylene, triexta, SmartStrand, and wool. Each option comes with distinct benefits. Polyester and polypropylene are budget-friendly and highly resistant to stains, making them practical choices. Triexta offers exceptional durability, while SmartStrand boasts resilience and eco-friendliness. For a touch of luxury, consider the natural warmth and insulation of wool.

The different types of carpet construction are cut pile, loop pile, and level cut loop. Cut pile carpet has yarns that are cut at the ends, creating a soft feel underfoot. Loop pile carpets leave the yarn uncut, offering durability and resistance. Level cut loop is a hybrid construction that combines cut and looped yarns, providing a balance of softness and durability. The choice depends on your lifestyle, decor, and performance needs.

Carpet installation is a multi-step process that typically begins with the placement of a tack strip around the room's perimeter. The carpet padding is then laid and secured, followed by the carpet itself. The carpet is stretched tightly, attached to the tack strip, and any excess is trimmed. For the best outcome, it's recommended to leave carpet installation to the professionals at AJ Rose Carpets & Flooring.

The best care and maintenance approach involves regular vacuuming to remove dirt and dust, prompt spot cleaning for spills, and a professional cleaning every 12-18 months. It's also beneficial to use mats at entrances to reduce soil tracking. Rotate furniture periodically to prevent uneven wear and avoid direct sunlight that can fade the carpet. These steps will help prolong your carpet's life and keep it looking its best.

When spills occur on your carpet, it's essential to act quickly. Start by blotting the spill using a clean cloth, and working from the outer edge inwards to prevent spreading. If solid material is present, scoop or remove it from the area. For tougher stains, consider Shaw carpet cleaner, which is designed to effectively remove stains, leaving your carpet spotless. Remember, prompt action can help prevent a spill from becoming a permanent stain.
