Barber carpets: Descriptions, advantages and disadvantages
Berber? What's Berber? The Berber is a very flexible carpet and can be used with many kinds of decorations. Berber used to refer to a carpet that had a bright colour and contained stains of lighter colours (usually grey or brown). The web styling of the North African Berber peoples was the subject.
The Berber spot was most often found in slung carpets, and the word Berber was associated with slung carpets. With the increasing popularity of the loop style, the choice of colours became more diverse, so that instead of only being available in stain or multi-colours, they were also available in plain colours.
The name Berber, however, remained hanging, and so today the name most often relates to the loop and not to the colour. Berber has become one of the main drivers of its popularity because it has a good record of being cheaper than other home rugs. Berber carpet is indeed available in many different pricecategories, some of which may be similar in priced to other types of trimflor.
However, it is the case that Berber tends to provide more "bang for your buck" in comparison to other style, which means that at the same cost you will probably get more longevity from Berber than from chopped fabric. Firstly, many berbers are made from the fibres of olefins.
A further explanation why Berbers tended to be cheaper than their cutting edge equivalent is that they are cheaper to produce. Every carpet starts as a loop style. Obviously Berbers remain in the loop, so that this part of the production cycle can be overlooked. A further factor in Berber's fame is the beliefs that Berber is more durable than other types of home rugs.
It' truth that a fibre is generally thicker in loop shape than in chopped shape, but that does not mean that all Berbers are more resilient than other Berber types. An inferior Berber will not be as long-lived as a mediocre Saxon. Like anything else, to really be able to measure the value of a Berber carpet against another type of home carpet, you need to be able to measure two different items of the same standard.
As well as the relatively low costs, a big benefit of the Berber carpet is that it is quite simple to remove debris and spots. Due to the twisted structure, burials have a tendency to settle on the carpet so that if you can reach them early, you are likely to be able to avoid them falling into the fibre.
Most Berbers are multicolored or have the vernacular spot, which makes them great for concealing dirt and spots. A drawback of Berber is the ability to get caught and/or run. Actually, it takes a great deal of strength to catch a Berber. You can do this by putting a item of cabinetry over the carpet; it is not likely to be done when you put a toysuit on the carpet.
My greatest worries I am hearing are whether the nails of the animals will harm the carpet, or whether the carpet will injure the animals by trapping its nails. The carpet would not cause me any worries about pain in the dog; it is very unlikely that an dog walking over the carpet would catch its talon in a noose.
But if you have a kitten that likes to hone its nails, it may find the Berber structure attractive and cause some harm by repeated mending.
A lot of people wonder if, if something gets caught in a bow, it leads to a "run" in the Berber and dissolves the carpet. It depends in part on the carpet type, but in general this is not a very likely outcome. An example in which a run could actually take place is the use of a drive unit or a percussion beam cleaner on a Berber carpet.
When there is already a hook in the carpet, the drive unit could readily get to the slack string and wind it around the spinning rod and is strong enough to untangle the string. Therefore, when sucking Berbers, do not use club pole tops.
A further disadvantage of Berber is that it is simply not as smooth on the legs as a carpet with a chopped nap. A few berbers, especially those made of olefins, can even be harsh. Softfibre rugs, such as the Mohawk SmartStrand range, make for a much more comforting feeling. The Berber has definitely left the cellar and is used today in all areas of the house.
It can even be used on staircases and around balusters - if correctly mounted, the back of the carpet cannot be seen between the loop lines as it curves around the edges of the staircase. Simply make sure you select an appropriate carpet grade for the amount of Traffic it receives.
If you' re looking for more functional areas such as your lounge, choose a spot colour to help diminish the relaxed feeling a multicoloured Berber can have.
