How to Clean a Sisal Rug

Sisal rugs derived from agave plant fibers sisalana in Central America, become colored, dirt and stepped on, just like any other carpet. Cleaning a sisal rug is easier than it looks or sounds! (Sisal is pronounced see-Szal or sai-Szal.) Just consider the following tips, and you can also have a sparkling clean yet rugged natural sisal carpet.

Sisal is harvested and stripped of their sustainable fibers, allowing a highly flexible, strong blanket. But while your carpet can be firm, it can still be affected by external forces. When it comes to cleaning, cleaning your carpet with care to avoid damaging the surface and uneven coloring. Do not clean your carpet with an excess of liquid; sisal rugs tend to shrink when this happens. Keep your carpet away from moisture or high humidity areas. The wetness can distort your area rug, warping to a shadow of its former self. Instead, keep your carpet in its current form by lying down in a dry place, preferably an area where spills are less likely. If you spill on your area rug to clean it as soon as possible by blotting with a dry cloth and without rubbing the liquid into the fiber. Say something that you can clean your sisal carpet stains with a mild soap and water spills. Alternatively, you could take a half vinegar half water solution, or try to spot cleaning with a cleaning product recommended by the manufacturer of your carpet. Dip the cloth in the soapy substance and dab the carpet, but keep in mind to pat it dry. And remember to use a small amount at a time so that your carpet does not absorb the liquid. Repeat on the bottom of the carpet as you need to.

Clean dry materials like dirt by scraping them off with a blunt edge, like a wooden knife. Special cleaning powders for sisal rugs are useful too. Do not forget to vacuum your carpet regularly so you pick up accumulated dirt and the like immediately. Vacuuming often also prolongs the life of the carpet, since dirt embedded in the carpet can destroy the carpet fibers. Even though the sustainability of a sisal rug can not save themselves from poor maintenance. If you are really concerned that your carpet is looking less than perfect, many manufacturers suggest dry cleaning. Consult the manufacturer of the first, and certainly not too wet shampoo or steam clean your carpet! Again, all that excess moisture will carpet your frown into something unrecognizable. Sisal rugs are tough, rugged and versatile, but only if you let them be. Spot clean when needed and keep your sisal rug dry, and you’ll enjoy it for years to come.
