Sisal carpet is a natural carpet fiber extracted from Agave plant’s long leaves. Sisal is a highly durable carpet often used in heavy traffic areas and higher end homes. It can be used as a wall to wall carpet, an area rug, or runner. High-end homeowners are turning to sisal because of its berber-like texture, and also because it is an environmentally friendly fibre.
There are many different benefits that come along with purchasing a natural fibre carpet. Sisal is naturally stain resistant, doesn’t trap dust or allergens, is heavy duty, durable and good for heavy traffic areas, and won’t compress or show wear patterns like a typical wall to wall carpet. Sisal does not need to be installed just inside your home. We have outdoor rugs that are perfect for sunrooms and patios. Sisal comes in neutral colors and can be added to any room in your home without sticking out.
Sisal is naturally stain-resistant and does not require too much care. It is important to note that sisal is not entirely waterproof. Sisal is easily cleaned, because dirt will not cling to the hard, non-static fibers. Vacuuming a sisal carpet regularly will keep it clean. If you happen to spill anything that is liquid, make sure you blot it with a cloth to make sure there is no stain left behind.
