How durable is carpet?
You can expect your new carpet to last 10 to 15 years, although high-quality carpeting installed in a low traffic area of your home will last much longer if it is well-maintained.
Highly stain-resistant pet-friendly brands are your 'best bet' if you're looking for the most durable one. Braid Flooring & Window Fashions is a respected retailer that offers a wide selection of durable carpet in Saskatoon, SK.
In general, a high-quality soft surface features durable fibers that are tightly woven onto the backing. Nylon has been known for its durability for decades, and newer triexta carpet is comparable in longevity.
These fibers are looped onto the backing, and it is this loop style that is most durable, especially short loops that are easily cleaned since dirt stays close to the surface.
Turns per inch
Fiber loops are cut at the tips to create additional carpet flooring styles, and then each fiber is twisted or turned to increase durability. The number of turns, or turns per inch, is listed on the label, so it's easy to determine the durability of any cut style carpeting.
For example, one with a TPI of 5.0 or 6.0 is considered good and is unlikely to unravel after it is laid.
Padding is always installed, or it won't take long for a carpet to wear out. The manufacturer's specifications list the type of padding needed for optimum durability, and usually, the warranty is void if instructions are not followed.
Along with preventing wear, padding offers a cushion that provides comfort underfoot as well as thermal and sound insulation.
