Carpets do you know were also called “Geotextiles”? This is something that was bought to the limelight after a pressure cleaning company in Vancouver decided to dive deep into the evolution and enrichment of carpets over time. The reason why carpets were called geotextiles was that it was usually made with fabric sometimes combined with geo-based material like soil, rock, and limestone.
Geotextiles existed more than a century ago, the basic function of a geotextile was to prevent the entering of hydration and moisture into the interiors of the household. While carpets and geotextiles may be varying in their usage their purpose of use was the same to protect the underlying floor between them.
A popular Carpet cleaning in Vancouver that is keenly dedicated to studying the evolution of carpets says “it is difficult to say whether geo textiles emerged from carpets or carpets emerged from geotextiles. But what we know is though both are different in usage and area of application, they are both quite similar. It’s just like butter and cheese both being milk”.
UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WOVEN AND NON-WOVEN CARPETS
- Woven carpets refer to the process when the thread yarns are woven together with the means of a weaving yarn to derive a defined shape and structure whereas non-woven carpets are carpets that are derived by combining the yarns of thread without the process of passing them through the weaving yarn.
- Woven carpets are weaved into a similar kind of fashion which is uniform throughout the fabric whereas non-woven carpets are carpets that are compressed under immense heat or pressure, the most common example of non-woven carpets is the existence of tufted grass that is used in several places for decoration.
- Woven fabrics have a stronger internal structure because they are combined using effort whereas non-woven carpets are compressed and kept under force and anything which is kept under force cannot sustain for long. The air will gradually tend to get into the internal structure and thus with the passage of time and the gradual movement of air the carpet will tend to wear out and lose shape. The most common example of this can be seen when tufted grass tends to lose its layers one by one with time.
- If one keenly tends to absorb the structure of woven carpets then we can notice the structure being a unique blend of wool and mainly a blend of wool and fabric, sometimes wool and fabric, woven carpets help reduce noise pollution, clean air quality and also provide resistance against slips, and falls and accidents.
- Non-woven carpets, on the other hand, are combined by machine-made efforts hence the number of options is many unlike woven carpets but the longevity in terms of a woven carpet is comparatively lesser. The non-woven carpets are usually combined using an adhesive hence the problem is the adhesive tends to dry up very soon, which is why they tend to loose their structure with time.
