Saxony carpet will bring warmth and comfort to your Ottawa home. This smooth and inviting floor covering is perfect for creating cozy spaces and will stand the test of time when properly installed and cared for. Our team at Floor Coverings International Ottawa East has gathered the facts about Saxony carpet to help you decide if it might be right for your home.
Benefits of Saxony Carpet
Saxony carpet is what comes to mind when many people think of wall-to-wall carpeting. It has a traditional cut pile construction and is densely woven to create a very soft, smooth surface that feels velvety underfoot. Often referred to as plush carpeting, Saxony carpet is a popular option for bedrooms and other lounging spaces in your Ottawa home, as well as formal spaces that are less frequently used.
Saxony carpet comes in straight and textured varieties, making this carpet a versatile option for any area of your home. The fibers of a straight Saxony carpet stand upright in the same direction, and thus have a tendency to show footprints and vacuum tracks. Many people avoid placing straight Saxony carpet in high traffic areas for this reason.
Textured Saxony carpet has fibers that are kinked or twisted and therefore much better at hiding traffic. Textured Saxony is not as soft as the straight variety, but it will be a worry-free surface for any room in the house.
Care and Maintenance of Your Carpet
The care and maintenance, as well as the cost, of a Saxony carpet are really dependent on the fiber you select. Wool and nylon are popular options for their softness and durability, and other synthetic fibers are available as well.
Regular vacuuming is important to keep dirt and debris from damaging the carpet over time. Deeper cleanings are recommended once a year. With straight Saxony carpeting, it is also a good idea to move furniture occasionally to prevent permanent marks on the carpet. The plush construction of this floor covering makes it susceptible to crushing.
