What is Tencel?

This trademarked material is a good choice for people who want a no-fuss rug. It is considered a top-performing cellulose fiber floor-covering. Carpets and rugs made from this material can easily be wet-cleaned with cold water. Since the fibers are both biodegradable and sustainable, they do not negatively impact the environment. Tencel is also resistant to moisture and bacteria.

Cleaning a Tencel Rug

Like viscose, Tencel rugs will weaken when wet, so are not recommended for homes with pets. Additionally, though these rugs are easy to clean, cleaning should never be attempted at home. If your Tencel rug needs to be cleaned, it’s best to hire a certified professional who knows the proper techniques required to clean your rug without causing any damage.
