Stephen (Dusty) Roberts-owner/operator- travels the world for the rug industry and speaks at many industry events and conventions.
He is one of the most qualified cleaners in Canada, and has been certified by the Oriental rug cleaning company in Dallas Texas as a MASTER RUG CLEANER. He has also completed the rug cleaning program with the National Institute of Rug Cleaners(NIRC) and the International Institute of Carpet and Restorations Cleaners (IICRC).
With all the years of training Dusty knows how your rug is woven, the safest cleaning for your rugs and the history of where and how your rug was made.
He started Lug-A-Rug in 1986 and had Luggie greeting Victorians for years. In 2004 the name was changed from Lug-A-Rug to Luv-A-Rug to better reflect our passion for area rugs and Luggie retired but has never been forgotten.
Dusty knows a lot of knowledgeable and influential people in the rug world, Barry O'Connell is one such person. Barry has turned his passion for area rugs into an obsession. He has written hundreds of webpages about every kind of area rug made. Check out one of his websites to learn the history of Persian rugs. He can tell you where a rug was made based on the colours of the dye used. It is amazing the depth of his knowledge. He has composed a list of all the people in the Rug and carpet Cleaning Industry that he trusts and whom he knows are qualified to do rug and carpet cleaning. Here is a snippet of what he has to say about us:
"Dusty has all methods of rug cleaning at his finger tips from full immersion washing to complete dry cleaning with no chemicals. He custom matches rugs to the safest and most effective process for the individual rug and never cleans in a tub or machine with other rugs where cross contamination or colour bleeding can occur. All rugs are cleaned with fresh and clean water and cleaning solutions.
I highly recommend that you check out Dusty's office Manager, "RugloverMary's" blog, she always has great advice for her readers and is a wonderful person that I have had the pleasure of meeting personally when I visited her hometown in Canada!"
What a wonderful recommendation from Barry, someone we also respect and trust.
We love it when clients love their rugs after we clean them. Most tell their family and friends, some give us online reviews and some even write about us. Here is a blog post testimonial from a happy client that found us through my rug blog.
Vacuuming is your area rug's best friend when done correctly.
To remove the maximum amount of dirt from your area rug turn your rug upside down and vacuum the back of the area rug first, this vibrates the loose dirt and debris to the top of the fibers. Using a rotating/ beater bar type of vacuum cleaner works the best.
For Wool area rugs it is best to use suction only to vacuum the topside of your area rug. A rotating brush/beater bar vacuum can remove the finer fibers and make your area rug fibers wear away faster.
For Synthetic rugs it is okay to use a rotating brush/beater bar on the top and back side of the area rug. The fibers of a Synthetic rug don't shed like a wool rug.
To vacuum the fringes either use suction only or vacuum side to side across the area rug instead of lengthwise. The fringes are less likely to get sucked into the vacuum.
Vacuuming your area rugs once a week and doing a front and back vacuuming at least once a month extends the life of your area rug.
We would Love it if you would tell everyone about your experience with Luv-A-Rug.
