Since we have been writing our blog every week, we have already told you a lot about rugs. We have told you how to differentiate a quality carpet, which carpets to use for the summer, or know how to differentiate between types of carpet.
Today, we want to tell you about the different materials that exist to make a rug. In this way, you will have a global vision of this beneficial decorative element, and more so in winter.
And it is that there is such a variety of materials to make rugs that one can end up confusing when making the best choice. That is why today, we want to make everything clear to you, and in this way, you can choose with all the information at your fingertips.
Most Used Fibers
There are continuous fibers, both natural and synthetic, with which rugs are made. On the one hand, we have natural fibers such as wool, cotton, silk, jute, linen, or bamboo.
Carpets made with natural fiber have the particularity of improving the characteristics of the air in the area of the house where they are placed since they absorb excess moisture and restore it when the environment is dry. They also prevent electrostatic charges from building up.
On the other hand, we find synthetic fibers such as acrylic, polypropylene, nylon, polyester, or viscose.
The rugs made with synthetic fiber are a great ally in cleaning since they are easier to clean on a day-to-day basis, as well as not accumulating so much “dirt.”
Some Questions To Ask Before Purchasing A Carpet Material
Before buying a carpet material from Green Mats we need to ask some questions. These questions are:
1) Is it made by hand or machine?
2) Is it made of natural fiber or synthetic material?
3) What size is it?
4) Do you have a guarantee?
