Carpet / April 18, 2018 / Hollie Sweeney
It's easy to tell how good the twist is on any kind of carpeting. When you have a sample on hand, look at its ends up close. If they appear to be neat and tight, they have probably been twisted many times. Carpeting with great twist quality has a uniform and level appearance; the end of each tuft matches closely with the ends of other tufts. The end result is neat and orderly. If the ends are frayed and loose, though, the carpeting doesn't have a high twist level. This means that it will get damaged with ease and it won't last you for very long.
You can buy special stain resistant carpets that can be useful for those areas that people frequent. You need to decide if the extra cost is worth it, or if having your carpets professionally cleaned every now and then would be as effective. You can also pay extra for water-resistant carpet, which is a good feature if you think there will be a lot of spilling on your carpet. Whatever it is that you need, think about what features will be best for your family's needs regarding your new carpet and you will likely find a carpet to suit your needs.
