The practical uses of a sisal rug

When   we look at the purpose of having rugs we have to acknowledge their   practicality. They are needed for several reasons but some of the materials   that they are made of are better for use because of their cost, toughness,   and durability. One very good material used in rug making is Sisal. We will   discuss some of its advantages here.

What Does Sisal Rug Made   of?

The first thing that I need to know as a consumer is exactly what   I am getting when I purchase a sisal rug. Sisal is a tough plant which is   harvested for the fibers that it provides. Because the fibers are so tough   they are used in many different applications for private and commercial use.   It is often used to make rope, hemp, twines, paper, cloths, and even   scratching posts. This is just a small list of the uses of this wonderful   product.

One of the most practical considerations of purchasing a sisal rug   is the low cost of the material. The fibers are extracted from the plant   through a process of crushing and beating the leaves until everything other   than fiber has been removed. Sisal is grown and harvested on large   plantations and costs very little to grow and maintain. It is grown naturally   for the most part and when insecticides are used they only need to be used in   small amounts which are completely removed at the time of   harvesting.

Advantages of Sisal Rug:

Advantages of purchasing a sisal rug are their effectiveness, lack   of necessary maintenance, and durability. There rugs will do the best job if   you are looking for a protective covering. They are so tough that they will   allow very little damage to be transferred onto the surface that you are   using them to protect. If you are looking for low cost durability I highly   recommend using a sisal rug. Sisal also requires almost no maintenance at   all. The dense tough fabric repels moisture and dust and dirt will sit on top   of the dense fiber rather than being ground down into it. Whenever the rug   becomes dirty it will simply need to be vacuumed. When a wet spill has   occurred you will only need to use a dry powder to remove all traces of a   stain. This rug will also almost never have to be replaced. Even when the rug   remains in a heavy trafficked area for years the observable damage done to it   will be minimal.
