Despite its status as beautiful flooring staple, many Brentwood homeowners worry about the durability of carpet. At Floor Coverings International Brentwood we can help you find the perfect, durable carpet style for your home. Frieze is a low-maintenance, casual, and comfortable carpet. Keep on reading to find out if it is right for your home.
What Is Frieze Carpet?
Known for its unique construction, frieze is a high twist, cut pile carpet. Each carpet fiber is twisted seven to nine times. Typical carpets fibers are twisted three to five times, which is why frieze has such a distinctive look. The high twist offers a textured surface and gives the carpet a comfortable aesthetic. The result is a modern take on the classic shag carpet.
Where Frieze Works Best
The distinctive carpet texture means that frieze is durable. It is the perfect option for any areas of your home with high foot traffic. From living rooms to hallways, you won’t have to worry about your carpet showing dirt or debris. While you may be hesitant to install carpet in a home with pets, frieze can stand up against any challenge. You’ll be especially grateful for frieze carpet in the colder months, as it will help keep your home warm and cozy throughout the winter.
Cleaning & Maintenance
The twisted pile of frieze keeps the carpet looking brand new, even in busy households. However, the pile can trap dirt and allergens, so regular maintenance is a must. We recommend vacuuming your carpet twice a week and deep cleaning it at least once a year.
Our experts can help you find a great stain-resistant carpet fiber, like nylon, so you won’t have to worry about a spill damaging your carpet. With any stain-resistant carpet style, be sure to still quickly clean up the spill and dry the area.
