Bucks County Oriental Rug Store, Brandon Oriental Rugs - www.BrandonRugs.com - Reminds Rug Shoppers That When It Comes to Tufted Rugs"Good enough" Almost Never Is

"Good Enough" certainly isn't when we're talking about "tufted" area rugs.

These handmade-rug look-alike's (unfortunately confused by the unwary buyer with REAL handmade rugs) are "attractively priced" compared with the price of a REAL hand-knotted rug. But their cheaper price masks their long-term costs.

*   They have much shorter useful lifespans (five years average) compared with REAL rugs (generations).
*   They're sometimes promoted as a "Green" product, but the landfills won't welcome all of the tufted rugs that will be clogging them in a short time.
*   They can damage some pre-finished floors.
*   They are difficult to clean, and when cleaned often no longer will lie flat on the floor.
*   Vacuuming soon gives them a fuzzy, "cheap garment" appearance.
*   They have an unpleasant odor (high rubber content). [Kinda strange though that with all the rubber in them, these "rubber rugs" don't bounce.]

This is definitely a product where "good enough" really is not.
