Berber repels spills really well and a simple blotting over a spill usually does the trick to take out the stain. With its clean lines, berber can be used to help open up a space and make it appear larger. This type of carpet is also easy to vacuum and doesn’t leave marks or footprints.
Berber Carpet Construction
Most berber carpeting is light in color with darker flecks (usually brown or gray) and is available in many different patterns, textures, and designs. Berber is identified by its looped construction. The loops in berber make the carpeting more comfortable under your feet while providing firm support. While many berber carpet flooring options come with a looped construction, berber can also be found in cut pile form. Cut pile berber is known as California berber and does not have loops. Cut pile berber is great for households with children and pets as there are no loops to cause snagging. Just like the traditional carpet making of the Berber people, modern-day berber helps insulate temperature and sound.
