CARPET IN EDMONTON
Twist carpets in Edmonton aren’t as densely bundled as texture carpets, and they have a very soft feel. Twist refers to how many times the yarn is twisted. When the twist in the carpet is tight the tuft curls slightly, giving it a pleasing and contemporary look. Light hits the yarn in different spots, leading the carpet to have an interesting multi-shaded look. Two-toned yarn and an uneven surface give it a casual look suited for any room. Its tight twist construction helps resist soil, so it's a good choice for family rooms. Twist carpets are actually great in any room in the house because of their durability and minimal display of footprints. BORA Flooring giving Carpet installation services in Edmonton as well.
Textured carpets are popular in every carpet store with dense, level-cut pile clipped to about 1/2 inch high or less in Edmonton. The closely packed yarns give a soft, smooth surface with an elegant, classical look that is perfect in more formal settings. A textured carpet with a smooth finish is often referred to as plush.
Loop carpets in Edmonton contain tufted, uncut loops of equal height, resulting in a very smooth surface. Loop carpets are durable, easy to maintain and great for high-traffic areas and informal rooms. Level loop is harder and stiffer than other options, and tightly tufted loops create a very dense texture. Just keep cats and small children off loop carpets!
Pattern carpets offer a combination of the above, allowing more options of textures and patterns. Cut and loop achieve a sculptured pattern with varied levels of uncut low loops and sheared top loops. The pattern looks like it has been cut into the carpet, and usually features several tones from the same color family. Patterned carpets elevate any room’s level of sophistication and make a personal and unique design statement. You can buy these types of carpets from BORA Flooring in Edmonton.

Olefin (or polypropylene, a synthetic fiber) was originally designed for outdoor carpeting and basements due to its resistance to moisture, mildew, water damage, staining, pilling, shedding and static. Now it's more widely used for its durability and wool-like feel and appearance, so due to its softness Olefin becoming famous for outdoor carpet flooring in Edmonton. Olefin is dyed before it's made into a fiber and is therefore colorfast, though some olefin can flatten and fade in direct sunlight. Olefin is highly stain-resistant, but not very soil-resistant. Olefin is generally more suitable for lower traffic rooms in a home; in commercial settings, olefin is recommended for light to medium traffic areas.
Acrylic is closer to wool in appearance and feel than other synthetic carpets; it also offers some of wool’s appealing properties, but none of wool’s drawbacks. Acrylic is made of acrylonitrile, a clear plastic, and manufactured primarily for commercial use. Acrylic is not as durable as wool, and is easily stained by oil and grease, but it wicks moisture away while wool traps it. Acrylic is soil, static, moth and mildew resistant, plus it’s super easy to clean. Acrylic is available from carpet store in Edmonton in a wide variety of bright colors, and is less likely to fade in bright sunlight than nylon or polyester.
Wool carpet in Edmonton is generally made from the hair of sheep, and offers a deep, rich look and feel with excellent resilience and durability. Wool is easy to dye in rich colors, does not burn, and resists dust mites, which can exacerbate allergies. Wool absorbs and diffuses moisture, working as a natural humidifier. It is also naturally stain resistant, and its tightly packed fibers resist dirt. For these reasons, wool carpet tends to be more expensive than synthetic options.
Carpet Tile Glue-down or peel-and-stick carpet tiles are a good do-it-yourself carpet flooring option in Edmonton. These durable carpet tiles normally measure 1-2 feet wide, and give you the ability to create any design. The adhesive system keeps the carpet in place and eliminates curling. And, since the tiles are all-in-one (padding plus carpet), a separate carpet padding purchase isn't necessary. Maybe the greatest advantage to carpet tiles in installation is that if there is a spill you will only need to remove the stained square, not the entire carpet.
