Here at Fairbanks Cleanpro we know about all the different types of carpet, how they are made, and exactly how they should be cleaned. Our knowledge of carpet is extensive, and we would like to take this opportunity to share some factoids about what exactly is a carpet and how is it constructed.

Description

Carpeting is a floor covering made up of a layer of textile pile attached to a fiber backing. Normally, the pile is made of twisted cut or looped strands of wool, nylon, polyester, or polypropylene that are then heat-treated to maintain their structure.

History

The Middle Eastern nomadic tribes were one of the first people to make carpets and lay it in their tents over 2,000 years ago to insulate from the cold. Today, more than a billion square feet of carpeting is produced in the United States each year.

How its Made

Carpets today are made with a method that mechanically weaves fiber yarn into a  stiff backing. A needle pushes the carpet fibers through the underside of the backing. A hook holds the fibers in place as the needle goes back down into the backing, forming a loop. This looped carpet is called “tufted carpet.” If a “cut pile carpet” is wanted, then the tufted carpet goes through one more step in the process. The hooks holding the fibers in place is pulled over sharp blades, cutting the loops into individual strands which are what makes up a cut pile carpet. Once the carpet is finished, it is washed, dried and vacuumed. Stray strands are trimmed and then it's rolled and ready for sale.
