Synthetic carpets - practicality and comfort in your home
All people have a stereotype that there is nothing better than natural materials. Of course it is. Who would want to buy fruits grown on various fertilizers and nitrates than those grown in the bright sun at my grandmother's garden?
But this pattern most likely applies only to food products, and not to synthetic carpets. If you look closely, you will notice that polypropylene carpets are easier to maintain and more practical than those made from natural materials. The best option would be to lay carpets of different quality materials in different rooms of the room. In one room, it will be appropriate to lay a carpet made of natural wool or silk, and, for example, in a kitchen or corridor, where the flooring is most exposed to dirt, the best option would be polypropylene carpets. In such places, the carpet needs to be cleaned of dirt much more often than in the bedroom or living room, so polypropylene carpets are ideal for frequently dirty parts of the house. To all other, you will change the carpet in the kitchen or in the corridor to another much more often than in the bedroom or nursery, and the cost of a carpet made of natural material is much higher than the price of a synthetic carpet. That is why synthetic carpets are very necessary in everyday life. All carpets differ in their properties: carpets containing different types of synthetics have the same stain, some are washed, while others leave an unwanted shade.
What is a synthetic carpet
Artificial fibers are those that are the final product after artificial processing of natural raw materials. For example, viscose, which is often used as a material for making carpets, is made from cellulose.
Synthetic materials are those materials that are obtained as a result of using the method of chemical synthesis. synthetic materials are polyamide, polypropylene, polyester, acrylic.
Properties of synthetic carpets
When a person is going to buy a carpet, he will definitely pay attention to the tag, which gives basic information about the composition of the carpet. If you see "acrylic" on the label, it will give you the following information: the carpet is of good quality, the pile will retain its shape and height for a long time, the service life is average, and the feeling is soft when touched. But it also has a couple of drawbacks: it is very whimsical in cleaning, it needs to be cleaned often.
If you see the name "polyester" on the label, it means that such a carpet will be easy to clean, without much effort, it will not get dirty for a long time, it is used in the manufacture of high-pile carpets. You can also pay attention to carpets, which include polypropylene. They do not absorb stains well due to their smooth surface, which makes them easier to clean, they do not fade, they hold the color very well and for a long time, and have high durability. Even such a wonderful synthetic carpet has its drawbacks, it can easily catch fire.
The most widely used method to complement your interior design is to buy synthetic long pile carpets to decorate your home. Long pile is not a hindrance when cleaning polypropylene carpet, it does not absorb dirt well, which makes it easier to clean. You need to remember only one condition for the correct operation of a synthetic carpet: you need to clean such a carpet regularly, then the dirt will not have time to be absorbed, it will remain on the surface, which can be removed by a regular vacuum cleaner. If this nuance is observed, a polypropylene carpet will serve you for a very long time without losing its abilities.
We have already talked about the complete interconnection between the room where the carpet will be laid and the long pile of the carpet. Treat yourself to a high-pile carpet in your bedroom, living room, or nursery, but it is more practical to use a low-pile carpet in the kitchen or hallway.
What to look for when choosing a carpet
The first criterion is density. The denser the carpet, the longer it will serve. You can visually assess the density of the carpet from its back side. If the threads fit tightly to each other, then the density is high and the carpet is of high quality.
The second criterion is the weight of the carpet. If the carpet is light, then its density is insufficient. If the carpet is heavy, then it is dense.
The third criterion is the elasticity of the pile. Checking the elasticity is very simple: press on the pile and quickly release it. Now look at the result: if the pile is not aligned, then its elasticity is poor. If it immediately acquired its original shape, then the elasticity of the pile is in order.
The fourth criterion is the material of the carpet. Long pile indicates synthetic and woolen threads.
Considering all the criteria when choosing a carpet, one can easily conclude that the prices for carpets will differ significantly from each other.
If you are in doubt about synthetic material, we can assure you that they are no worse than natural carpets and have a number of their advantages:
polyester carpets do not cause allergies;
they are easier to clean;
moths and other microorganisms will not start in synthetic carpets.
