What is Frieze Carpet?

When shopping for carpet, you will find a dizzying array of styles and options. It is easy to get overwhelmed by all your choices, but the professionals at Elite Carpet Cleaning stand ready to help. We understand that you do not buy carpet often enough to remember the nuances of carpet fibers, but we do. We help customers purchase the right carpet for their budget and their personal style. One popular type of carpet is frieze carpet, which has both pros and cons.

What is Frieze?

Made in a manner like shag carpet, manufacturers make frieze from long, twisted fibers. All this twisting makes the carpet dense and durable, making it an excellent choice for high traffic areas. Frieze hides dirt well and lasts for years. It also has a flexible price point. You can expect to pay between $1 to $8 per square foot when choosing frieze.

Frieze Pros

If you like your carpet to maintain a plush look without a lot of maintenance, frieze is the way to go. Footprints, vacuum lines, and carpet seams do not tend to show on frieze like they do on many other carpets. Another perk is that frieze is durable without being harsh. It is strong enough to last but soft on your bare feet.

Frieze Cons

Frieze does not demand a rigorous cleaning schedule, but it can prove difficult when it is time to clean. The carpet's open weave makes it easy for dirt to find its way through the fibers and embed itself deeply in the carpet. If you choose a frieze carpet, select a stain-resistant material. Note too that frieze carpet creates a casual look and feel. Although it is great for play, bed, and family rooms, it will look out of place in a formal living room.

If you want a carpet that offers durability without sacrificing comfort, frieze fits the bill wonderfully. Whether you choose frieze or another type of carpet, you can count on Elite Carpet Cleaning to keep it looking its best.
