Will this rug resist hot sparks from the fireplace ?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 11, 2014
Answer:Olefin rugs are indeed very spark resistant. Small embers that go out within a few seconds after contacting the rug will usually not leave any damage at all. Larger embers will only lightly singe the fabric. Olefin is very good about retaining its original appearance, even in an area that has had contact with hot embers.
