Sisal rugs are particularly difficult to clean as they are made from natural fibres like dried grass. Being made from natural fibres, they require a more delicate approach to cleaning and extra care must be taken. Traditional rug cleaning methods are, therefore, not appropriate and can even ruin a sisal rug. Unfortunately, many less experience rug cleaners are not familiar with their temperamental nature of sisal rugs, we are often met with clients who are seeking our help in restoring their already ruined rug. The expected outcome of such a remediation can only be judged on a per case basis.
Below outlines the process that we take to clean Sisal Rugs. This process can be time consuming, but is very effective.
The first step involves the rugs being pre-vacuumed to ensure that as much as possible of the dry soiling from within the rug fibres are removed.
Through this process any sprouting from within the rug is exposed. Our technicians then trim this off before applying the absorbing compound.
Once the compound has been applied thoroughly from top to bottom, it is left to sit. This is to ensure that as much of the embedded dirt and grime is absorbed from the sisal rug’s fibres as possible. Once the compound reaches its absorption limit, it is then vacuumed off. This process is then repeated several times to ensure the soiling is removed.
Once these steps are completed, the rugs are hung to dry and highspeed air movers are placed under and around them to facilitate the process.
When the rug is dry, a final groom and inspection is carried out to check for any further sprouts. If sprouts have occurred, they are trimmed.
