One of the most popular carpeting options for Waukesha homeowners is loop pile carpeting. Read on for more information about this durable, versatile carpeting option and why it may be a great fit for your home.

What is Loop Pile Carpeting?

That’s a great question. There is a lot of jargon in the carpeting world, and to understand loop pile, it helps to know how it is made. There are two types of carpeting: loop pile and cut pile. Modern carpets are made by threading yarn into a backing material. This results in rows and rows of loops. When these loops are left intact, you have loop pile carpeting. Cut pile carpeting is made by cutting each loop into two individual strands.

Why Loop Pile?

Loop pile is strong and more reliable than cut pile carpeting. Cut pile carpeting sacrifices durability for comfort. That is why cut pile is more common in residential settings. That does not mean that you won’t find loop pile carpets in homes. Waukesha families know that loop pile is a great investment because with minimal maintenance, it can last for decades. Loop pile is also a very versatile flooring type with many available styles, colors, and deigns.
