Carpet's appearance


  • Shading or vacuum cleaner marks are normal in most cut pile carpet, particularly in velvets and saxony style. This visual effect results from the light in a room reflecting differently from the tips of the carpet to the sides of the fibers.
  • Seams are more noticeable in berbers or low profiled carpet than in cut  pile carpets.
  • Footprints are most noticeable in deep cut pile carpet. A low profile dense carpet will not show footprints
  • as easily. Texured saxonies and friezes show footprints less than dense carpets.
  • Dents in carpet fibers are noticeable when heavy objects are on the carpet for extended times.’
  • Move your furniture around. Brush the dented areaby using a grooming tool or fork to gently stand the
  • fiber up again.Steaminng the fibers and brushing the tufts upward will help lift the fibers.


Over time traffic can cause the tips of the carpet fiber to untwist and splay open, or Bloom.  Look for carpet with dense pile and tightly twisted tuft to minimize blooming.


Crushing results from the compression of the tufts of  carpet fibe from heavy traffic and heavy furniture.
