Seagrass carpets are increasing in popularity for a number of good reasons: first, they are made from naturally occurring materials which makes them good for the environment, second, they are extremely durable, and third, they are fairly easy to clean and maintain.
But even though seagrass carpets are easy to clean and are low maintenance, that doesn’t mean that they need to cleaned at all. Just like other carpets, they need to be cleaned, too, if you want to keep them for a long time and you want to avoid getting contaminated air indoors.
Here are some ways you can keep your seagrass carpet dirt-free:
Vacuum regularly – Even when you don’t see any visible soil or dirt buildup, it is important that you vacuum your seagrass carpet on a regular basis. Sometimes, dirt particles can be extremely small that they’re basically invisible to the naked eye.
Scrape stains off of your carpet as soon as possible – If you have spilled something on your seagrass carpet that could result in stains, scoop or scrape the spill first to prevent the entire thing from seeping into the carpet fibers.
Blot the remaining stains using warm water – After scraping the stain off, you might be left with residual stains. You can get rid of this by blotting the stain with warm water.
Avoid using colored cloths in blotting stains on your carpet – Colored cloths and rags might bleed into your seagrass carpet and cause discoloration. Instead, use paper towels or plain white cloth to remove stains.
Mix vinegar with water for tougher stains – There may be times when stains won’t easily come off. If you come across this problem, simply mix white vinegar with warm water and use the mixture to blot stains.
Call in the professionals – Have a professional carpet cleaner dry clean your seagrass carpet at least twice a year to keep it thoroughly clean.
