Sisal Rugs Are a Healthy Choice
Rugs made with natural fibers, including sisal, are a heathier choice for your family. Synthetic carpeting can release harmful volatile organic compounds, including formaldehyde, into the air in your home. Sisal rugs are made only with natural materials, keeping your family safe from potentially dangerous toxins. What's more, sisal doesn't build up static the way that synthetic rugs can, making natural rugs a welcome relief during dry months.
For most allergy sufferers, natural sisals rugs are also a great choice. Dust and mites can easily get trapped in wall-to-wall synthetic carpeting, worsening asthma and allergic reactions. Furthermore, full room carpets — especially those with a deep pile — can be very difficult to keep clean. With sisal carpets, you'll breathe easier knowing that the rug both helps prevent dirt and pollen from circulating in the air and allows it to be easily vacuumed away. Place sisal rugs strategically around your home in seating areas, bedrooms, and near doorways.
Sisal is a species of agave plant, and the fiber has been used for thousands of years to make rope and twine. Today, it's often found in paper, carpet backing material, and even clothing accessories like hats and bags. Because the plant biodegradable and can be grown without the use of fertilizers, sisal rugs are healthy for the planet in addition to being safe for you and your family. Other natural rug options include seagrass rugs and jute rugs.
