Oriental Rug or Synthetic?

If the fiber is natural, it will burn away, smell like hair and leave some ash behind. Matter of fact, oriental rugs are expensive, not just because they’re made up from a natural fiber, but because they’re hand woven. Even more, the edges of a natural fiber rug are typically woven tightly.

In contrast, synthetic rugs are typically made of polypropylene, polyester or nylon. Furthermore, a burn test on synthetic material will melt and ball up, as well as smell like plastic. As a final point, synthetic materials are made to be much more durable than natural fibers. Most synthetic rugs are cleaned in customer homes using the hot water extraction method.

Lastly, in the nature of natural fibers, the cleaning process consists of more due to its delicacy than a heavy durable synthetic rug.
