Berber carpet has been around since the 1980’s and has continued to grow in popularity ever since. Today, we have so many Berber options when it comes to style, colors and quality levels. Here at A1 Carpet, our experts will help you choose the right style of Berber carpet in Encino, CA for your home.
What is Berber Carpet?
Berber carpet is a style of carpet that consists of multiple small loops that are woven together rather than cut. The term Berber began to be associated with looped carpet and as looped styles became more popular, the color choices became more varied. The origin of Berber carpet has been traced back to the Paleolithic era (also known as the Stone Age) and is actually named after the “Berber Tribe” of North Africa. Berber carpet is now one of the most popular flooring choices in home and offices today
Which Carpet Fiber Is Right For Me?
When it comes to selecting the right carpet fiber for you, there are two main things you must consider: cost and longevity. Our experts at A1 Carpet will work with you when selecting your Berber carpet in Encino, CA.
- Wool – It is a natural fiber derived from sheep and is the most expensive. Though very soft and durable, it is also the costliest to maintain. It must be cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner who specializes in wool carpet.
- Nylon – Nylon is a very durable fiber and costs less than wool. It cleans easily and resists stains very well. Nylon is the most resilient fiber which gives it the ability to retain its like-new appearance longer than any other synthetic fiber. Depending on the traffic of the area, a good quality nylon carpet can last up to 20 years or more if well cared for.
- Olefin – An inexpensive fiber to manufacture and the fiber is prone to matting and crushing because it’s not very resilient. Berbers made with olefin are very reasonably priced and can last up to 10 years if well cared for and traffic is low to medium.
- Loop Size Matters – Berbers made with larger loops tend to mat down more quickly, so choosing a Berber made with smaller loops may be a better choice to avoid matting.
