Pulled loose loop pile tufts

I saw a couple of inspections back to back last week that had to do with pulled loops. Both inspections have dogs.

The first inspection was in a brand new home in a small town. This subdivision like most new developments in central Ontario encourage hardwood floors on the main level of the home. This customer knowing her two larger dogs would scratch the heck out of hardwood decided to go with carpet on the main floor and tile on the hallway. She asked for “dog friendly” carpet. The builder then put in loop pile olefin berber. I have never heard of this style of carpet being dog friendly. Of course there are about a dozen pulls on the main floor carpet.

The next day I see a similar inspection in a family room of a large suburban home. The carpet has already been replaced because of loose loops. The retailer, installer and mill rep all believe its damage from her dog. Of course when I get to the house at supper time the “dog is not home”. The lady says to me “trust me his nails are not long”. A simple analysis of the situation should show retailers that paw nails will snag loops on carpet. Yet the retailers are selling loop pile carpet to these prospects. I just don’t understand.
