saxony carpet Downers GroveIf you are looking at new carpet floors for your Woodridge area home, you might be overwhelmed with the vast number of materials, textures, and colors to choose from. Fear not! Floor Coverings International Downers Grove is here to help you make the right choice for your next carpeting project. Here is everything you need to know about soft, luxurious saxony carpet.

Saxony is a soft cut pile carpet with an even surface and plush feel. Its fibers are woven tightly and densely, which gives it that soft feeling that we all love under our feet first thing in the morning. Saxony carpet is typically made out of nylon fibers, but its cut and softness mimics that of more expensive wool carpeting, and it comes in a variety of colors to elevate any home design. Because it has a more luxurious look and feel, it is a great carpeting option for bedrooms and more formal living rooms.

Due to its softness and upright fibers however, saxony carpet does show footprints and vacuum marks more than loop pile carpets, such as Berber. We recommend moving your furniture around more regularly to avoid leaving permanent marks, as well as avoiding this type of carpeting in areas that receive high traffic. Because of its denser fiber count and softness, it is also more expensive than other options.

Saxony carpet is an elegant choice for any home, and simple, routine maintenance can help it last and keep it looking at its best. Because it has a thick pile, it should be vacuumed weekly to remove any dirt and debris trapped in its fibers. To reduce the amount of vacuum marks, homeowners will often use a vacuum or attachment that doesn’t have a beater bar, which tends to have more noticeable mark. Lastly, an annual deep cleaning should help it last for years to come.
