In recent years, the public’s push to be kinder the planet has made our customers wonder what they can do to go green with their flooring projects.

Advantages & Disadvantages
Our customers have found that the main advantages of sisal carpet are that it is easy to clean, sturdy, and non-toxic. Because it is made from natural materials, sisal carpet is a great choice for homes with people that have allergies and/or asthma. Additionally, sisal carpet is very easy to dye, which allows it to come in a vast array of colors, patterns, and prints.
However, the flipside of being easy to dye is that sisal carpet is easily stained. So, don’t plan on having sisal carpet installed in an area that is frequently at risk for stains, such as a kitchen or playroom. Also, sisal carpet can feel rough underfoot so you won’t be able to sit or lie as comfortably as you would on a plush weave carpet.
Because we have partnerships with premier manufacturers, we have access to the best brands and widest range of colors and patterns of sisal carpet. Give us a call at FCI Vancouver today to explore our eco-friendly sisal carpet products.
