WHERE CAN I PURCHASE CAVALIER BREMWORTH PRODUCTS?
HOW CAN I TELL IF I'M BUYING A GOOD QUALITY CARPET?
The most trusted way to check that you're buying a good quality carpet is to see if it has an independent performance grading from ACCS – the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme. Carpet manufacturers have no influence over what grading their carpets receive once they have been sent off for testing – providing consumers with a truly trustworthy source of information. If quality and longevity are important to you, look for a ‘Residential Extra Heavy Duty Plus Stairs, 6 Stars’ rated carpet.
WHO WILL INSTALL MY CARPET?
Carpet must be purchased through one of our retailers. They will help you select your underlay and they will organise one of their carpet layers to complete the job.
WHEN BUYING CARPET, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BROADLOOM (LINEAR) METRE AND A SQUARE METRE?
A broadloom metre is the standard width of a carpet roll – 3.66 metres. To work out the square metre price from a broadloom metre price, just divide the broadloom metre price by 3.66. Alternatively, ask your retailer to quote the job in square metres.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF WOOL CARPET/RUG?
Wool carpets and rugs have stood the test of time and they have many amazing natural properties that synthetic carpets/rugs cannot match. Wool regulates humidity within your home (absorbing moisture when the air is wet and releasing it when the air is dry) essentially meaning it can breathe. Wool is also naturally hypoallergenic (absorbing and filtering VOCs) which is a great benefit for asthma sufferers. Wool is the safest carpet fibre as it's very difficult to ignite, it burns slowly and it's easy to extinguish. Wool is a 100% sustainable fibre and is easy to clean because wool has a very thin, waxy coating chemically bonded to the surface – meaning anything water based (most common food and drink spills) will bead and roll off before they're absorbed into the carpet. As long as you get to a stain immediately, you should be able to get it out. Take a look at our handy Carpet Care guide for more information.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF A SYNTHETIC CARPET?
Synthetic carpets and rugs are relatively new and they have one key advantage over a wool carpet, being that most have fantastic fade resistance properties – great if your home is north facing and prone to lots of direct sunlight. We use only solution-dyed nylon fibres (SDN) in our synthetic carpets/rugs, as we believe this fibre is the best in the industry. In SDN carpets, the colour runs all the way through the fibre whereas standard nylon carpets are over-dyed, meaning they have colour on the outside of the fibre but are still white on the inside. We strive to innovate in synthetic offerings and have a range called Siren that is made using a fibre that is created using 100% recycled plastics including fish nets that have been recovered from around the world.

How accurate is the rug generated on the Virtual Rug tool?
The virtual rug tool generates a rug that is designed to give you an idea of the size/shape of your rug. The illustration is indicative only. Due to individual settings on computer screens, monitors and printers, colours will always vary. The size of the image is also an indication only. Cavalier Bremworth recommend ordering a sample before purchasing to ensure you are happy with the colour and design before purchasing.

How long will it take for my custom size rug take to arrive?
As custom size rugs are designed to your requirements it takes time to create your unique rug. Please allow 5 business days for the rug to be dispatched. We will send you a confirmation email once the rug has been shipped including tracking details. Freight can take 3 – 5 business days depending on where you are in New Zealand. Note: we cannot control delays by freight companies.
Can I put my rug on carpet?
Cavalier Bremworth recommend placing the rugs on hard flooring. When a rug is placed on carpet it appears to wrinkle. This is because carpet does not provide much support for the rug. When heavy items such as dining tables are placed on top of the rug this will show more.
