Level Loop Carpet

Level loop is a type of carpet pile that uses loops of the same size; creating a smooth surface. The durability and ease of cleaning makes it a great choice for high traffic areas. It is often chosen for public places where foot traffic and constant cleaning may take a toll on a less durable carpet.

Level loop comes in a variety of colors and thicknesses. While most carpets of this type are solid in color, some have flecks of color to provide a textured look or to hide debris. There are also manufacturers who make level loop carpets with patterns with multiple colors. It does not have the flexibility of some other styles and so may not be on the cutting edge with designers, but it still comes in a variety of colors.

Level loop carpet is constructed through weaving or tufting. Tufted carpet is produced by attaching loops to the backing of the carpet with knots. Weaving is accomplished with a loom with a threaded backing. The density of the loops will affect its appearance and life span. Closely looped carpets help keep dirt from going deeply into the carpet as well as providing a sturdy carpet that wears well and holds up to heavy traffic. Check with the manufacturer to make sure that they level loop you are interested in has the density you want. The quality of the carpet will be reflected in the ratings provided by the manufacturer and the warranty they provide.

Some people avoid level loop carpet it because it tends to have a hard texture. If you want a soft carpet that is comfortable under foot, this may not be the best style for you. It does not have the soft feel of a cut pile. Of course, fiber types can influence the texture and feel. For example, a soft nylon fiber will produce different results than a cheap, synthetic fiber. Samples from the sales floor can help you determine if the texture meets your standards for comfort.

Level loop is not the ideal carpet if you want to 'cuddle' on the floor in front of the fire, but it can be an excellent choice for someone looking for a highly durable carpet that is easy to clean.
