Coir Cleaning Maintainance

Maintenance Instructions

A periodic and tailored maintenance programme will prolong the design life of your covering and preserve its original appearance.


Daily cleaning by means of vacuum cleaner. A thorough cleaning of the covering is recommended every 6 months, or once a year, depending on how much foot traffic it receives.

Dry - cleaning

The covering is cleaned by sprinkling it with a powdered shampoo of a reputable proprietary brand. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to the letter.

Wet - cleaning

  • First vacuum thoroughly, removing any stains.
  • Dilute the product as little as possible.
  • Don't drench the carpet. Keep it as dry as possible.
  • Use a reputable cleaning product to which you've added some vinegar.
  • Distribute the product evenly. Pay particular attention to stained parts.
  • Let it dry, avoiding all foot traffic on the (wet) covering.
  • Vacuum thoroughly.
