                                 Berber Carpet

 

Berber carpet has become one of the most popular carpet styles over the past several years.  Like other carpet styles Berber carpet has a wide variation in product quality and performance characteristics. (To bypass this section and go straight to our Berber carpet gallery, click here or any of the Berber carpet links in this document.

Prior to 1985, most Berber carpet was constructed of nylon fiber and most were subdued, beige tones.  The increase in popularity of Berber carpet probably started with the introduction of Berber carpetDuPont StainMaster in late 1986.  Prior to the StainMaster launch, few consumers would take the chance on buying a light colored carpet, because of soiling and staining tendencies.  When StainMaster launched, many consumers started buying lighter carpet shades (even white) and as I recall, the next three years became an unending blur of visiting every consumers home (or so it now seems) home to explain that the Stainmaster treatment did not mean the carpet would not get dirty, it just meant that carpet cleaning would be easier. I remember telling more than 30 exasperated consumers, "Did you think that white carpet would not show dirt?"

At about the same time as the Stainmaster launch, a number of olefin extrusion plants came on line and olefin (polypropylene) fiber capacity jumped considerably.  

Both nylon and olefin Berber carpet have advantages.  Olefins resist all stains, with the exception of oil-based stains, but have the tendency to flatten or crush with time.  In choosing an olefin Berber carpet, make sure you understand carpet construction.  Olefin cleans remarkably well, but fibers tend to gray due to soil abrasion.  Olefin Berber carpet  is one of the best carpet values in terms of cost.

 Nylon Berber carpet has become harder to find due to the popularity of olefin.  They are a bit pricey due to their scarcity, but Nylon Berber carpet are treasures.  To a true diehard carpet romantic, nylon Berber carpet now has the mystic formerly held by wool Berber carpet.  New StainMaster fibers have made nylon Berber carpet easier to clean and stains are easier to remove, if immediate removal is attempted.

 

This description may sound like I have an affinity for nylon, but this is not necessarily true.  This past weekend, I just cleaned my 11 year-old olefin Berber carpet and much to myBerber Carpet wife’s disappointment, it seems to have 9 lives.  My wife already has tired of the piece, but I am certain there are 11 more good years left.  With a six-year old, more than half its life has been a trial under fire (and Kool-aid, and cookies, and milk, and ………) I actually have my wife convinced that the Berber carpet in our family room is "test" carpet and if it is replaced prior to 15 years, we will have to pay a penalty for premature replacement.  Actually, the penalty is related to installing new carpet with a spill-prone six-year-old. 

In choosing the Berber carpet  I made all the right choices.  Look for a high density construction with a crushing warranty (rare).  This Shaw Carpet Berber (Cabin Craft) was a 55 ounca six-inch seam iron can eliminate some peaking of seams and reduce color change at the seam.e, four-ply olefin (most are two-ply)  and was a high density construction.

While beautiful, many Berber carpet styles are difficult to install, even for a seasoned pro.  Seams are rarely invisible and pattern match can be tricky.  Always order 10-15% extra for pattern match and insist on a six-inch seam iron to minimize seam peaking.

As always, whether you need help buying your Berber carpet or installation of it, give us a call or email us today.
