We have a sisal (or some kind of natural grass type fiber) area rug with no backing, and it seems as if a significant amount of very fine dirt accumlates underneath it quickly. The amount doesn't seem proportionate to the amount of traffic it gets, but I'm not certain. Is this from the sisal itself, or is it just really good at catching then sifting through the dirt?
Is the hardwood damaged?
