Durable And Beautiful Sisal Rugs
We all like having beautiful things in our houses and apart from that, we would also want them to last long. Sisal rugs are some of the most durable items that we can use in our houses. There are many benefits of sisal rugs over carpets made from synthetic material. Sisal is naturally stain resistant, so you don’t need to use any chemical treatments around your pets or children. It also doesn’t build up static electricity, as we all know carpet does on dry, windy days. Sisal rugs are also very durable and won’t compress or show as many wear patterns as wall-to-wall carpeting. Even when compared with other natural fiber rugs, sisal rugs are a smart choice. They are extremely strong and versatile, ideal for high traffic areas like hallways. They also have the unique ability to be tightly woven with other textiles, such as wool or seagrass, to give the combined benefits of both fibers. Many prefer a rug of 60% wool and 40% sisal because it is warm and soft.
For care and maintenance of sisal rugs, manufacturers recommend dry-cleaning methods only; steam and water should be avoided. To take care of stains, spot-clean with dry cleaning fluid or alcohol. Moisten a cloth with either solvent and blot out the stain; it may take several applications, depending on the type of stain you have to remove.
