Zippering is one of the most common problems with loop-pile carpet.

Zippering of Loop Pile Carpet
 

Zippering occurs in a loop pile carpet in which tufts are pulled from the backing resulting in long, lengthwise pulls out of the carpet. This happens when someone pulls a loose tuft or a vacuum cleaner grabs a loose tuft and pulls out the entire length of tufts.

Zippering is the ripping out of a row of loose carpet loops

Three Other Construction Problems You May See in Carpet:

  • Carpet Roll Crush may occur during shipping where rolls are loaded several rolls high.
  • Delamination is the separation of the primary and secondary backings.
  • Pooling also known as Carpet Shading, Watermarking, Pile Reversal
  • Rippling is usually due to failure to power stretch the carpet.
