Benefits of Frieze Carpet
Frieze carpet flooring in St. Louis homes will generally last for many years because of the high twist present in each of its fibers. Unlike most carpeting that will wear down due to foot traffic over time, frieze strands rest on their sides, and this keeps them from sinking and from untwisting at the tips, also known as blooming.
When your room is larger than the standard width of a roll of carpet, it will require a seam. This normally creates a line through your carpet, but with frieze this is not the case.
You can easily carpet your stairs, edges, hallways, and family rooms beautifully with frieze carpet flooring, and it also hides dirt, stains, footprints, and vacuum lines.
Spilled beverages can easily travel between the Frieze carpeting strands, creating a stain that is harder to clean than on many other types of carpeting in St. Louis homes. To counteract this, it will be necessary to purchase stain resistance, usually a solution dye that has been added to the fibers during the manufacturing process to ensure the highest level of protection.
The fibers can also be crushed if they are under a heavy piece of furniture for a long period of time, never regaining their shape again. You will also need to use a vacuum cleaner that allows you to turn off the roller, as it can be hard on you Frieze flooring.
