Cleaning and Maintenance

All natural floorcoverings need to be cleaned at some point, so why not have your maintenance program in place. After all, you clean your bathroom floors weekly, you would clean the floorboards every time you notice dust on them and probably this would be weekly.

Just because your natural floorcovering such as Sisal, Coir and Seagrass does not appear to be soiled, does not really mean that you don’t need to professionally clean it on a reasonably regular basis.

By regular we don’t mean weekly but at least annually. Natural Sisal Carpet should be professionally cleaned in conjunction with the vacuuming that you are doing on a weekly basis.

All of our products are natural, eco friendly and different to the synthetic nylons etc…Therefore you treat them differently when cleaning.  Natural Sisal floorcoverings are easy to keep clean with weekly vacuuming but we often get asked about red wine and pet urine and how to clean it.

These are the two most difficult liquids that will stain any soft floorcovering and urine with its high acid content will stain.  However, if you can get to them quickly then you can lessen the chance of a possible stain.

With any spill, the secret is not to rub to get the liquid out but to blot the floorcovering to try and draw the moisture up and out.  We are talking about the two most difficult types of potential stain. In most cases, a clean white rag will blot up anything liquid to a good extent if you get to it fast.

However, for the best protection we suggest that you invest in a small kit of Envirodri Microsponges spot cleaning kit which you can tip onto the spot, let it soak up the liquid and then when it is dry vacuum up the tiny micro sponges.

Envirodri contains a balanced blend of moisture, detergent and a small amount of safe-to-use solvents.It will deep-clean spots, spills and traffic areas if used as directed.It is safe to use and is an organic product which can be put on the garden after use.

If your flooring requires an annual clean then you can contact:Karl 0415 138 763

We sell the Envirodri Microsponges spot cleaning kit at $65.00 per pack (ex postage) which will last some time and it is important to have this on hand at home for those unexpected accidents.

Any Natural Sisal Fibre Floorcovering should be DRY cleaned. Do NOT steam clean or shampoo as natural fiber products can shrink or expand depending on the fiber and amount of water used.

Natural Spray Protection (with added UV Guard)

In high traffic areas or dining and food service locations it is advisable to consider protecting your floorcovering as this is as investment in your home. When ordering, we can apply the natural spray pritection to your floorcovering or rug. The life of the protection will vary with the amount of usage.
