I'm getting ready to put new frieze carpet (similar to a shaggy carpet). I have a dyson vacume cleaner I have heard that it doesnt vacume that well on frieze carpet. Is that true? Is that type of carpet durable? Thanks for your feedback.
I can't answer for the dyson question, but I have frieze carpet in my house and love it. the husband wanted full blown shag and I compromised (I wanted berber) any way, it is durable, tough and does not mat.really happy with it and we have it in the highest traffic areas of our house - the hallway and stairs as well as the master bathrooms. every time I vacuum, it looks just like it did the day they put it in. I have a kirby and vacuuming it is a breeze. I have not had any issues other than not being able to find earrings in the carpet if I drop them. It cleans beautifully as well.

Cut pile carpets (frieze, shag, plush) clean well, but sometimes don't wear well. A frieze gets even wear, due to how it lays. Loop pile (berber) wear very well, but is more difficult to clean. One thing to consider is what is the carpeting made of (nylon, acrylic, olefin/polypropylene, wool, etc.) as this also determines how well it will clean up. As for a dyson vacuum cleaner, it'll be like cleaning any other type of cut pile carpet, not a problem. The best way to keep carpets looking great is for regular vacuuming and getting a good carpet cleaning company in 1 couple times a year. When you're ready for that, let me know and I can give you some questions to ask when you're calling around to find someone.
