Beni Ourain Rug Cleaning

Beni Ourain rugs are among the most beloved rugs in modern decor.  They can instantly ground a space while bringing a beautiful sense of serenity or a fantastic pop of color.  Their long pile gives a space a warm texture which complements both traditional and more contemporary decorating styles.  In all my years visiting clients' homes, I have not seen any space that isn't well served by a gorgeous Beni Ourain rug.  

Beni Ourain rugs can be a challenge to professionally clean because they usually have an ivory or white background with dark or vibrant colored motifs.  The contrasting colors can be risky to clean as the dark colors can sometimes bleed into the pale background.  This could mar the appearance of an otherwise fine rug.  For this reason, it is important to contract a company that has experience professionally cleaning Beni Ourain and other Moroccan hand made rugs.  Ask the company about the color run tests they perform.  Note that there can never be a guarantee that there will not be any color run as that is an inherent risk in the cleaning process.  However, there should be steps taken to minimize the risk.  Experience and skill will go a long way into making sure the cleaning process will result in a cleaner and brighter rug that can be enjoyed for years to come.
