Pile knot Moroccan rugs, are extremely durable and retain their beauty for a long time with proper maintenance. In their original, tribal environment, a Berber rug serves several generations. Care for your rug does not require any special treatment, only a dry room and careful, regular cleaning.
To keep your carpet clean, vacuum it on a weekly bases (without using the beater brush) and combine this with dusting or airing it out on the sun from time to time. In case of the new rugs is important to vacuum them gently, at a lower level in the first few months as well as while the rug is compacting.
If something spills on the rug, the most important thing is to absorb it as quickly as possible (without rubbing) and let it dry perfectly. Avoid chemical cleaners in stain removal, as they can damage the wool fibers and colors. Try to tick to natural cleaning materials like baking soda or vinegar – they work great on most household stains. Always do a patch test first in a small area that can’t really be seen and make sure to dry your rug completely at the end of the process.
Every year or two, we recommend using a professional carpet cleaner to give your rug a thorough clean. Choose a cleaner that has experience with hand-knotted Moroccan rugs. Ask for gentle, manual cleaning, preferably chemical-free. All our customers get a detailed cleaning guide and the contact details of our cleaning partner who has lots of experience in Berber rugs.
