Easy to keep clean - just vacuum or shake the mat. The backing keeps the doormat firmly in place and reduces the risk of slipping. The mat is machine-tufted.
PLEASE READ: The doormat should be kept in a sheltered area such as a covered entryway, garage, patio, or similar where it's not getting saturated with rain, snow, sprinklers, etc. Wet shoes are fine, but complete saturation of any coir doormat can cause fading and discoloration. Applied Coatings, LLC is not responsible for any damage caused by using the doormat incorrectly. If your mat gets wet, make sure to let it dry out completely or the natural coir fibers will stay darkened in the areas that are still wet.
