Common Carpet Damage Characteristics

Seeing your floor covered with carpets sure is nice but aside from spills and stains, carpets are also subjected to different kinds of damages that can risk the quality of your carpet. Knowing the signs can prevent further damage to your carpets.

Static Damage

Static is created through friction and as a result, the carpet snaps, crackles and pop as you walk across. Due to the dry weather and low humidity, static charges are formed within the carpet thus resulting to static damage. Although new types of carpets have anti-static agents like conductive agents and fine metal wires that protects the carpet.

Pilling Damage

We cannot deny that we subject our carpets to foot traffic, moving furniture and different types of agitation that leads to fuzzing. Aside from fuzzing, it can lead to an entire fiber removed, this is called fluffing or shedding.

Pilling is a common problem and occurs when pills break or pulled out by the vacuum cleaner during the process of cleaning. Depending on the used material for the carpet like nylon, it will resist breaking or pilling. This damage usually shows on the part where traffic usually takes place.


The color differences between carpet areas caused by every day deterioration through physical contact and resulting random differences in pile lay direction; usually referred as shading.

Shading is a characteristic especially for all cut-pile carpets and others refer to this as a manufacturing defect but it’s not. It is caused by the physical difference between cut end lustre and side lustre of the fiber. The side of the fibers reflects more light and will appear brighter and lighter in color while the end will absorb more light and darker in color.


If two adjacent areas have different identical tension during the manufacturing, unevenness and rippling will develop. Ripples can also be caused by dragging heavy furniture across the carpet which creates friction between the two objects.

Sunlight Damage

Carpets are dyed to achieve the desired color and design. Sunlight exposure can deteriorate the color of your carpet but there are also several factors to consider when it comes to sunlight damage namely location, length of exposure to sunlight and the dye used for the carpet.

Given the situation, lighter colored carpet fades faster than darker colored carpets because of it contains smaller amounts of dye used in the carpet. The best way to prevent sunlight damage is keeping the windows covered with draperies and protective coating, filtering UV rays that damages the carpet.
