High Pile Rugs vs. Low Pile Rugs

The density of the rug fibers is referred to as a rug pile which is basically the thickness or thinness of the rug. This density is determined by the type of fiber used in the tiny loops at the back of the rug. High pile rugs, also called shag rugs, have longer fibers and loops making them softer and warmer than other rugs but when it comes to cleaning, they are more difficult to clean. A standard vacuum cleaning will not remove all of the dirt and dust.

Low pile rugs, on the other hand, are flatter and easier to clean due to their smaller fibers and loops. They also require more frequent cleaning because they cannot easily hide stains or blemishes.
