How to assess carpet density?

The carpet density is determined by the number of tufts – or the number of hairs – on one square meter. The standard carpet density is 100,000 – 500,000; the highest density, for example, for silk rugs is 2 million points. The density of rugs is impossible to compare factor – the number of bunches in rugs woven e.g., from viscose, will be relatively viscose carpet Singapore higher than that of rugs even from wool. However, there are woolen rugs with fewer bunches: they are soft, fluffy rugs called “shaggy” (shaggy, hairy).

Dust, dirt, and mites

As already mentioned, woolen rugs are resistant to dirt to some extent; unfortunately, they are also a great habitat for microorganisms. It may be surprising that dust and dirt do not reach so easily silk rugs, despite the delicacy of this precious material. It is used to make high-end carpets that come from countries such as Iran. Fun fact: silk is the only natural fiber that is harmless to allergy sufferers. Those who want to buy carpets that get dirty as little as possible are advised not to buy cotton rugs. Not without advantages (which include, for example, maintaining the color for a long time), but their visible disadvantage is that it is difficult to keep them clean, viscose carpet Singapore they are also quickly damaged.

Important: the term “resistant to the dirt” by no means entitles us to believe that we will be able to remove absolutely any dirt from the selected carpet. It only means that the carpet has an increased degree of resistance to dirt. This does not protect the fabric against stains that are not easy to remove.
