How to clean your carpets and extend their lifespan?

Rugs play an essential role in interior design, adding warmth, texture and character to any room. Whether traditional, such as Moroccan Berber carpets like the beni ouarain or beni mrirt, or more contemporary, these precious pieces of craftsmanship deserve regular maintenance to preserve their beauty and durability. In this article, we present a practical guide on how to clean your carpets effectively, highlighting the appropriate techniques for different types of carpet.

1. Identify the type of carpet

Before you begin the cleaning process, it is crucial to know the type of carpet you have. Moroccan Berber rugs like beni ouarain or beni mrirt and other wool rugs are often made by hand and require delicate treatment to avoid damaging the natural fibers.

2. Regular cleaning

Regular maintenance is essential to preserve the beauty of your carpet . For wool rugs, vacuum regularly in the direction of the pile to remove dirt and debris. This will help prevent the buildup of dust and particles that can damage the carpet fibers in the long run.

3. Stains and Spills

If stains or spills occur, it is important to act quickly to prevent them from penetrating the carpet fibers. Use a clean, damp cloth to gently dab the stain, avoiding rubbing, which could make the situation worse. For stubborn stains, consult a carpet cleaning professional for advice on the best treatment methods.

4. Deep cleaning

For a deeper clean, consider using a steam carpet cleaner or hire a professional for professional cleaning. Be sure to follow the carpet manufacturer's instructions and test any cleaning product on a small, inconspicuous area before applying it to the entire carpet.

5. Damage prevention

To protect your rug from damage, avoid placing it in areas where it is exposed to direct sunlight, excessive humidity, or heavy traffic. Use non-slip rug pads to prevent the rug from sliding on smooth surfaces and to reduce wear and tear.

By following these simple but effective tips, you can extend the life of your precious rugs and continue to enjoy them for many years to come. With regular maintenance and proper care, your Berber rugs will continue to beautify your home and enrich your living space with their timeless beauty and exceptional craftsmanship.
