The knotted carpet that is also known as supplementary weft cut-loop pile a very popular example of a knot in the old days called the shag is the best example that has been used in the 1970s. The shag is forming a "pile "or "nap" of the carpet. Structural wefts and supplementary wefts are alternately threaded to form exactly 90 degrees with respect to the surface of the weave. Oriental rugs such as the Kashmir are knotted by hand. A tufted carpet has "pile" injected to the backing material. Then the backing is attached to another backing for a stronger base. There are many other ways to produce carpets but these processes are not so reliable or the results have more disadvantages than the positive outcome of the finished product.
Of course one of the most important tips to remember about caring for your carpet is to vacuum it regularly. Carpets not only pick up the dirt from the number of passengers that walk over it but it also collects dust particles. Vacuuming your carpet sucks up the dirt from the carpet and also eliminates the bacteria and dirt that can stick in the textile of the carpet when left un-vacuumed for a long period. It is however important to note that vacuuming does not completely clean your carpet. The dust that collects in a carpet could cause serious diseases such as asthma and some vacuum cleaners send the dirt flying into the air only for the dust to re-settle back on and into the carpet once again; it is therefore important for one to set the vacuum to the correct pile setting so that the dirt absorption and deep cleaning is efficient. With vacuuming it is also critical to remember to change the filter and vacuum bag regularly.
Gone are the days when your only choice for outdoor carpeting was cheap looking grassy green stuff. I remember the salesman saying "You can choose any color you want as long as its green." Nowadays outdoor carpet comes in a wide variety of both colors and styles. There are so many types available that it helps to be informed before making a selection. Whether its for your deck the patio or for around your pool you need to be familiar with the main types of outdoor carpeting currently available. Most outdoor carpet is made from Olefin (Polypropylene). While not being a very good choice for indoor carpet due to Olefins rough texture it is an excellent fiber for application outdoors.
Another installation related issue creating havoc with installations is lack of adhesive being used to hold the carpet to the substrate. If there is one place where corners can be cut its by cutting back on the amount of adhesive used to hold down the carpet. You can double the "savings" if the carpet is a double-gluedown installation. This type of installation is when the carpet is affixed to the underpad and the underpad is affixed to the concrete. There are charts that clearly outline what kind of trowel to use to apply the adhesive on different styles of carpet backings. Unfortunately its rare that installers to abide by this chart. The rule of thumb for a properly affixed carpet is that it would be extremely difficult to peel back a carpet and if you could that there would be legs in the adhesive. Legs in the adhesive means that the where the glue separates from the concrete there are strings of adhesive between the floor and the carpet backing.
