Carpet will shed fibers when it’s new, through foot traffic, from dogs and other pets, and because of normal wear and tear. Plush carpet can also take on a fuzzy or hairy appearance (fuzzing) if the fibers become loose from the bundle as a result of dust and dirt embedded in the fibers, poor quality coating in the yarn bundle, or overall poor manufacturing.
While most carpet tiles will shed for a bit when brand new, you can stop the worry and headache caused by carpet shedding by installing one of many carpet tile products available at Greatmats. They are made of durable, nylon and similar material varieties that are designed not to fray or pull away. They perform much like berber or other commercial grade carpet products do.
The following carpet tiles available at Greatmats will shed some when freshly installed, but you’ll see that reduce significantly with each vacuuming:
- Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile
- LCT Plush Luxury Carpet Tile
- Champion XP Carpet Squares Tile
- Intellect Commercial Carpet Tiles
