Sisal is a form of carpet, made from the agave plant. It is an eco-friendly option that is 100% natural, free of harsh chemicals, and biodegradable.
Sisal provides a durable tough surface, meaning it stands up to even the highest traffic areas in a residential home.For homeowners with allergy concerns, sisal can be a great option. A strong, tight weave means that the material can help resist allergens and dust.
Sisal will absorb moisture, which makes it more vulnerable to mold and mildew without proper care. Sisal carpets are usually for indoor use only and shouldn’t be placed in rooms like bathrooms and basements that are prone to moisture and humidity. However, some can be chemically treated to allow for outdoor use.
