Features & Benefits of Carpet in Omaha, Lincoln & Sioux Falls
Many carpet styles come with built-in features to help them perform better.
A commonly perpetuated myth is that carpeting has a negative impact on air quality. In reality, carpet is the perfect solution for those who suffer from asthma or allergies due to its tendency to trap dust and allergens within its fibers, preventing them from escaping into the air. Regular cleaning is all you need for carpet to improve your home’s air quality.
Carpetland carries a variety of nylon and polyester carpets from the Shaw Floors brand. Many of these feature Shaw’s R2X Stain and Soil Resistance System, designed to repel liquid and other staining materials. Unlike other similar systems, R2X covers the entirety of every fiber for complete protection. Coupled with Shaw’s innovative LifeGuard spill-proof backing, this system keeps our carpets looking new for years!
Types of Carpet
Learn how carpet styles differ not only in looks and softness but how well they hold up over time and traffic.
Cut Pile Carpet
Cut Pile carpet has sheared strands with exposed ends. This is the most popular type of carpet, available in many different lengths and thicknesses. A key component of cut pile is twist, or the individual twisted fibers in the carpet. Tight, heavy twist gives a carpet added texture and durability, helping it stand up against matting and crushing.
Loop Pile Carpet
Loop Pile, on the other hand, has fibers in an un-sheared loop construction. This leads to more variety in pattern and texture, plus added durability. Like in cut pile carpeting, tighter and more heavily twisted loops lead to better matting and crushing resistance.
These two types can also be combined into Cut & Loop Pile, an intuitive combination that features patterned surfaces
