For the best effect, it is important that the area to be carpeted is measured and correctly fitted. Do not be tempted to use your old underlay as it will have worn in the heavily used areas, and in some cases even disintegrated. Underfloor heated rooms require a special underlay.

Carpets usually come in 4m and 5m widths in cases where your room is larger the carpets need to… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Fitting Services”

Regency Carpets – Carpet Types: Tufted

Posted on 29/07/10, filed under News | No Comments

With advances in manufacturing technology, 95% of all carpet produced today is tufted. It takes about an hour to make a roll of carpet that might take eight hours to weave. To make tufted carpet, hundreds of yarn-threaded needles are pushed through the primary backing fabric to form loops or tufts, which may be left as is or cut. A heavy adhesive coating is applied to hold the tufts in… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Carpet Types: Tufted”

Regency Carpets – Troubleshooting: Soiling

Posted on 27/07/10, filed under News | No Comments

Soiling is usually the result of some local condition to which the carpet has been subjected to, or maintenance, or lack of maintenance programme. There is nothing we as manufacturers can do to prevent soiling in use. There are several types of soiling which are quite common:

Spillages – Liquids such as soft drinks, cordials or any drink which contains sugar, particularly hot drinks, is likely to leave a… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Troubleshooting: Soiling”

Regency Carpets – Troubleshooting: Flattening

Posted on 19/07/10, filed under News | No Comments

Flattening will occur as a result of traffic which eventually flattens the pile particularly in the main areas of use. All pile fabrics will flatten to greater or lesser degree dependant on the amount of traffic to which it is subjected and the construction (tuft density/pile fibre/height/weight) of the product concerned… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Troubleshooting: Flattening”

Regency Carpets – Troubleshooting: Pile Reversal

Posted on 19/07/10, filed under News | No Comments

(SEE SHADING)
Like shading, this occurs when the pile or nap of the carpet changes direction and thus reflects light at different angles showing the effects of shading which can become permanent. It is also described as ‘watermarking’. This can happen to every carpet construction be it Axminster, Wilton, Tufted, Hand Woven, Persian, Chinese, Indian or even Coir Matting. Like shading it can be more apparent on plain carpet because… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Troubleshooting: Pile Reversal”

Regency Carpets – Troubleshooting: Indentations

Posted on 13/07/10, filed under News | No Comments

When a carpet is subjected to a heavy point load, such as under the legs of furniture, it is unreasonable to expect the carpet not to indent. Usually, the longer the load is in place, the longer will be the time for the pile to recover. In the case of very heavy loads in place for a considerable time, the recovery time can be very considerable.

It must be… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Troubleshooting: Indentations”

Regency Carpets – Troubleshooting: Fading on Wool

Posted on 08/07/10, filed under News | No Comments

Carpets made from wool can and do fade in use. The degree of fade can vary depending on the colour chosen and the local conditions to which the carpet is subjected.

Fading can be caused by exposure to ultra violet light which is found in daylight, but is accelerated when sunlight shines directly onto the carpet. This has the effect of lightening or “Bleaching” the colour just as exposure… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Troubleshooting: Fading on Wool”

Regency Carpets – Troubleshooting: Static

Posted on 06/07/10, filed under News | No Comments

Carpets do not produce static but like other household fabrics and objects have the capacity to store it. Static is caused by the build up of static electricity upon personnel in a dry environment and is discharged when a person makes contact with an object which can conduct electricity (i.e. door handle or filing cabinets, etc).

The static charges will vary in intensity depending upon the individual, air humidity… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Troubleshooting: Static”

Regency Carpets – Troubleshooting: Shading

Posted on 05/07/10, filed under News | No Comments

Shading occurs because the pile of the carpet has become crushed, flattened or brushed in a different direction to the natural lie of the pile whilst in situ. This causes light reflection at differing angles resulting in the creation of light and dark patches on the carpet. This will occur on all pile fabrics but can be more noticeable on plainer carpets because the shadows created by pile pressure will… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Troubleshooting: Shading”

Regency Carpets – Troubleshooting: Sprouting

Posted on 01/07/10, filed under News | No Comments

Occasionally an odd tuft or two can work its way to the surface and stand proud of the rest of the pile. This is probably due to one end of the tuft being longer than the other i.e. J shaped tuft instead of V shaped. Remedial action merely requires that the offending tufts be scissor trimmed level with the rest of the pile. They should never be pulled out… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Troubleshooting: Sprouting”

Regency Carpets – Troubleshooting: Pulled Loops

Posted on 29/06/10, filed under News | No Comments

Pulled loops occur only in looped pile carpet where one or more loops in the continuous pile is pulled through the primary backing of the carpet. This is usually due to some local condition, possibly some sharp object which has caught in a loop in situ and has resulted in a pull. Pulled loops are easily dealt with by trimming the offending end level with the rest of the pile… read the rest of “Regency Carpets - Troubleshooting: Pulled Loops”
