It’s a real advantage knowing how carpeting is made, because clients are always going to have a lot of questions about how carpet is made. When flooring contractors can answer their questions, they will be better able to steer them toward the floor coverings that will be best for their needs. Whether carpet is being installed at the office or at a home, it pays to learn about the process.
One of the key aspects to understanding carpet is knowing about the fibers. Most carpets today are made from either nylon fibers of poly propylene. The material to make the fiber is put into its liquid state then pushed into the spinneret. The spinning process starts with the flow of spinning fluid within the spinneret. The fluid undergoes high stress as it is pushed through the holes off the spinneret, creating a long string that solidifies as it cools. The holes in the spinneret vary in size and number, so the type of carpet fiber that is being extruded depends on that.
Knowing all about the different pieces of the manufacturing process that make up carpets can really help flooring contractors understand each type’s performance aspects. They will then be able to recommend the best kind of carpet and recommendations for care and cleaning.
