Carpet is made by looping fiber through a backing material. The loops are called 'pile.' Loop pile can be cut at the tips to create a cut pile. The look and feel of a carpet, or its texture, is defined by more than whether it consists of a loop or cut pile. Variation to the pattern loops are in, the density of fibers, length of individual strands of fiber, and whether these strands are tightly twisted or looser are some of these factors.
Most often, carpet is made of durable and resilient nylon. But it can also be made of equally durable and inherently stain-resistant triexta as well as wool, acrylic, polyester, and olefin. Carpet installation includes placement of padding on the subfloor. The padding absorbs impact from foot traffic to increase the lifespan of any type of carpet.
