How do you clean this rug?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 30, 2013
Answer:This rug can be cleaned by vacuuming, then steaming it. Because it can damage the fibers, the rug should not be machine washed.

I have hardwood floors and I'm looking for a good fireproof rug. Can you please tell me which rug is the best to help protect my floors?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 15, 2013
Answer:Any of our olefin hearth rugs will be an excellent choice and feature outstanding resistance to flame. Olefin fiber does not burn and requires a great deal of heat to smolder. Our olefin rugs can be located by searching the key word "olefin" in our search bar at the top of our website.

I have a glass-front gas fireplace (the embers not an issue). Our area rug, which lays approximately 15 inches in front of the fireplace, began to disintegrate from the heat.
I'm not certain about the makeup of our rug but it's not wool. Would your wool hearth rug cover our rug? Would it withstand the heat itself so as to protect our rug?

Answer:This hearth rug will indeed serve as a heat barrier to protect the existing rug. The wool rugs are chemically treated to prevent them from absorbing too much radiant heat and transmitting it to the floor material below.

I want to know if the rug is soft. Is it?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 4, 2013
Answer:Unlike some of the woven fiber rugs, the wool hearth rugs do feature a soft pile that will give under pressure.

How does this rug hold up to sparks?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 26, 2013
Answer:Wool is the least resistant material to sparks, however this rug does meet the current fire resistance code for hearth rugs. The code states that any ember that makes contact with the rug will not cause the rug to smolder more than three inches in any direction. Unlike naturally fire resistant materials, such as Olefin, this rug is likely to allow smoldering to occur closer to that 3 inch limit.
