How to give your Alternative floorcovering an 'all round' clean & refresh

What happens when it comes to professionally cleaning a sisal flooring? How do you clean a seagrass flooring? How should you give a natural un-dyed wool carpet an all round clean? These are questions we are asked regularly, especially when it comes to the natural plant fibre floorings which are known to be 'trickier' when it comes to cleaning.

The great news is that Woolsafe have the answer, their extremely thorough education and training programmes mean that a WoolSafe approved professional carpet cleaner will also be conversant with natural fibre floorcoverings, not just conventional or wool carpets. They will offer expert advice when it comes to those stubborn marks on your floorcovering as well as provide periodical maintenance cleaning services to keep your flooring looking beautiful for longer.

How do you clean a Faux flooring? 

Unlike our natural plant fibre floorcoverings or wool carpets, our Faux Collection of floorcoverings are made completely from synthetic fibres. However, this is not a problem when it comes to cleaning them. WoolSafe have this covered with a certification called CleanSeal, specifically developed testing for synthetic fibre floorings. Any carpet cleaning product that has a CleanSeal Certification Mark means that the product has not only passed the testing to achieve a WoolSafe Certification Mark, it has also passed additional testing to achieve a CleanSeal Certification Mark.

Plus, all WoolSafe approved professional cleaners will have access to CleanSeal products which means that you can confidently have your Faux flooring professionally cleaned by a WoolSafe approved professional cleaner.
