Maintenance and cleaning of Zellige

Zellige is a magnificent material that brings a touch of presence to your space. To maintain its beauty over time, proper care and cleaning is essential.

Here are 8 tips for properly maintaining your Zellige.

Tip 1: Clean Regularly

To prevent the build-up of dirt and dust, clean your surfaces regularly with a soft, dry cloth to wipe away dust and light particles.

Tip 2: Avoid abrasive products

Never use abrasive cleaning products, such as rough sponges or scouring pads, as they may scratch the surface of the Zellige.

Tip 3: Use a gentle cleanser

For a more thorough clean, opt for a gentle cleanser, such as a solution of warm water and mild soap.

Tip 4: Dry immediately

After cleaning, be sure to dry the surface of the Zellige using a clean, dry cloth. This will prevent the build-up of moisture, water stains and limescale.

Tip 5: Avoid Stains: It is important to note that while natural Zellige or Bejmat can be porous, this is not the case for glazed Zellige.

Glazed zellige features an enamel-coated surface, making it less likely to absorb liquids and therefore more resistant to stains. However, for natural Zellige or Bejmat, which retains its porosity, it is advisable to avoid spills of liquids such as wine, coffee, or juice. In the event of an accident, it is recommended to clean up immediately to prevent unwanted absorption.

Tip 6: Protect table edges

The edges of Zellige tables are particularly vulnerable to shocks. Use caution when using hard objects near these areas to avoid chipping.

Tip 7: Consider Location

If you use Zellige outdoors, be sure to take the weather into account. More frequent cleaning may be necessary to remove accumulated dirt.
