In Providence RI carpet can be found in over 70 percent of all homes. It’s also a popular flooring choice for schools, businesses and industrial areas.
About 90 percent of all carpet sold for residential use is made of nylon, an inexpensive manmade fiber that comes in nearly limitless hues. Other carpeting materials include olefin (common in commercial settings), polyester, wool and acrylic.
Carpet comes in two general categories: staple and bulk continuous filament. Staple carpet has short strands of yarn that are twisted together to create a tuft. This style tends to shed, but it also has a softer look and feel. Bulk continuous filament is made of long, continuous strands of yarn that are bulked and twisted together.
