Antique Persian Sarouk Area Rug Carpet

Hanging on the wall of our reception area here at Luv-A-Rug is an antique Persian Sarouk carpet.

This particular rug we have displayed on our wall is over 130 years old and has a fairly prominent feature you no longer see in younger Sarouk rugs – and that is the center medallion.

Follow along with Dusty as he describes some of the other features of the Persian Sarouk so you can easily identify one yourself next time you see one in a shop or on a friends floor.

Here at Luv-A-Rug we really know our rugs and we love having people bring theirs in so we can tell them all about the history, places, people and stories that wrapped in their rug.

If you were ever curious about the history or value of your rugs, be sure to bring them to Stephen “Dusty” Roberts at Luv-A-Rug and he’ll tell you all about it.

Luv-A-Rug’s Home Service Discovers Hidden Treasure

Luv-A-Rug’s Home Service Discovers Hidden Treasure

It’s amazing what a home service (much like what Luv-A-Rug provides) can uncover for a customer.

Recently a customer came in with a rug she had inherited from her mother.

Now the story behind this rug is that it was buried underneath a lot of stuff and virtually forgotten for years. But nothing can stay hidden in a house forever.

Especially when you’re moving to a new place.

That’s when you have to pack up everything and suddenly discover those things you forgot all about.

Like an area rug carpet you got from your mom that was buried under a lot of stuff.

So because this rug a lot of sentimental value you bring it in to be cleaned but then get the shock when you get it back.

What kind of shock?

Well to answer that you’ll need to take a quick look at what the customer wrote in her own words.

home Services carpet cleaning Aug 20 2016“It looks like a different rug” is something we hear a lot at Luv-A-Rug.

It’s because we’ve taken a simple home service and found a way to elevate to an art.

We don’t just clean rugs. We restore them AND help our customers discover the hidden value locked away inside their beautiful piece.

Very few rug owners know the true value of their rugs, the history behind them or the people who made them. But at Luv-A-Rug that’s exactly what we help them discover.

Luv-A-Rug’s home services saved a customer a lot of grief

How one of Luv-A-Rug’s home services saved a customer a lot of grief.

When moving into a new home things don’t always go as planned.

Sometimes you have an issue with the movers. Or the closing date. Or one of a thousand other things that can go sideways on you when you undergo a major change like this in your life.

At Luv-A-Rug we understand all about that kind of thing.

As one of Victoria’s premier home services provider we have our own shares of problems to deal with. That’s why when our customers need us to help them out a bit – we’re more than happy to accommodate.

Take for example what happened not that long ago.

A customer brought one of their carpets in for cleaning and we had it ready for pick up on the date promised.

However…the customer was stuck. She couldn’t get into her new home, which meant there was no place to put her freshly cleaned area rug carpet.

Once we heard about her dilemma, we were more than happy to help.

Which in turn made our customer happy – check it out below (click on image for a larger version)…

Tunisian Mergoum Area Rug Carpets

Impressing people all the time can be pretty difficult.

But by having a consistent way to do business, it helps us make sure that everyone goes home happy.

Take for example one of our customers who came in recently with a gorgeous Tunisian Mergoum Carpet to be cleaned.

As you can see by their review below, they were really pleased with how their carpet turned out. That comes from the fact that we not only care about doing a good job with the rugs, but with the customer themselves.

Personal attention upfront and meticulous attention in the back resulted in this fine review of our company Luv-A-Rug.

Cleaning Area Rug Carpets From Rugs from Turkey, Iran and Mexico

They say if you stay in one place long enough you’ll see the whole world go by.

I’m not too sure about the whole world, but I am sure that I see a lot of rugs from around the world

Sometimes all at once, like what happened recently when customer came in with a few area rug carpets from their father’s home.

Some carpets were from Iran, some from Turkey and even some from Mexico.

All of these beautiful area rug carpets needed cleaning.

I could tell they’ve been on the floor for quite a few years without being cleaned. Considering what the customer said after they got them back you can imagine just how dirty they were.

Now high quality area rug carpets are made to stand up to quite a bit of abuse. However there does come a point where if they are not cleaned they will break down.

And if your parents or grandparents own rugs that have a bit of age to them, there’s a good chance they may have some value to them.

What’s the best way to preserve that value?

Yup, that’s right. get them cleaned (at Luv-A-Rug of course!)

They brought in a rug that fends off snakes

It may not look like it but I’m more in the story-telling business than the area rug carpet cleaning business.

It sounds like a really strange thing to say, right?

But here’s the thing about what I do.

I know a lot of history that’s behind many of the hand woven rugs that come into our studio for cleaning.

And the history of these rugs are wrapped up in incredible stories and are nearly impossible for me to keep to myself.

Stories of nomadic tribes.

Of far away exotic countries.

Of betrayal and intrigue.

And of course, love.

There is more to your handwoven rug than just a pretty pattern.

And once you hear the story behind your area rug carpet, I can pretty much guarantee you will NEVER look at it the same again.

If you don’t believe me, then bring your carpet to Luv-A-Rug at 445 Beta Street here in Victoria BC and let me tell you the story you have woven within it.

Who knows, maybe you’ll discover how your rug can be used to fend off snakes just like this customer did…

They wanted their rugs cleaned but got something unexpected instead

Recently I had a customer come in with area rug carpets that once belonged to their mom but who had just passed away.

What they wanted to do was get the rugs cleaned so they could donate them to one of Victoria’s local charities called WIN (Women In Need).

I carefully inspected the carpets and saw they were quite soiled but in really good condition.

Which meant they were going to clean up really well and look almost like new again.

That’s when I dropped an unexpected surprise on them.

What exactly did I do?

Check out the review they wrote below to discover what exactly I did.

Why this is the second time they used Luv-A-Rug

Experiences speak volumes and tends to influence us in many ways.

I mean if you went to a restaurant and had an awful meal smothered with horrible service you’re likely not going to back there again, right?

Right, the bad experience will prevent you from ever going there again.

But if you had a great meal, over the top service and left really happy – would you go back?

Of course you would – the experience there would chatter on in the back of your mind trying to convince you to return and have more.

Then there’s the whole realm of other people.

The experiences other people have had can be just as powerful.

Whether it’s a conversation with a  friend or one you overheard two people having any positive experiences they tell about a business they went to makes it easy to decide if you’ll go there to.

Speaking of overhearing someone talk about a positive experience they had at a place recently – here is one about a traditional rug they had cleaned you might be interested in…

The Rugs Were Brought Back To Pristine Newness

You know it’s amazing what words customers use to describe their area rug carpets after we’ve done all the cleaning and repairing.

I mean, I would never have thought of using the words “brought back to pristine newness” to describe how an area rug carpet turns out after going through our process here at Luv-A-Rug.

But apparently that’s the kind of work we are able to do around here.

Who knew?

Well, you do now – check out the review below to see what I’ve been talking about.
