Where can I put these carpets?
These carpets will add a textured, durable feel to your interior and may be used in any part of the home except for ‘wet’ areas. We do not recommend the use of seagrasses on stairs because they can become slippery with concentrated wear. Natural floorings are very practical because they easily shrug off day to day dirt. However, to protect them against liquid spillages in particular, the carpets can be treated with an Intec Stain Inhibitor prior to despatch.
What about an underlay?
These carpets are made from natural plant fibres and whilst they have a latex backing for added strength and to prevent dirt dropping through, the manufacturers strongly recommend fitting to a contract underlay suitable for the ‘double stick’ method to prolong the life and give it a softer feel underfoot.
