Day-to-Day Care

Our natural floor coverings retain their appearance very well - even if you don't clean them regularly!

You will find that our pure sisal and coir floor coverings have a greater resistance to soiling than woollen and synthetic carpets.  They tend to hold less dirt and dust than conventional tufted carpets due to their tight woven structure and natural anti-static characteristics.

However, they can still trap fine dirt in the fibres close to the surface.  This may not be immediately apparent but, over time, this fine dirt could damage the fibres or, if mixed with water, cause a stain.

Vacuum cleaning

Regular vacuum cleaning is the most important step in preserving the fine appearance of your floor covering.  Vacuum cleaners with power brush heads are the most effective at removing dirt from within the fibres.

Never steam clean your natural floor covering, in particular sisal or coir.  Steam cleaning, or any other overall cleaning method that uses water, will saturate the natural fibres in your floor covering, causing sisal to shrink and coir to expand. Natural fibre floor coverings are not generally suitable for damp areas.

Heavy furniture

Over time, heavy furniture will create indentations in any carpet material.  These indentations are superficial and do not affect wear.  Using furniture caps and regularly moving heavy furniture can assist.
