As more people make the switch to hardwood and linoleum flooring, many still rely on stylish area rugs to bring warmth and ambiance to their homes. From woven heirlooms to modern day luxury rugs, these accents can become a central part of any room, adding color and meaning to the mundane.
Because luxury rugs are made from high-end fibers like silk and wool, maintenance for these woven works of art vary from how you clean the average area rug or carpet. Just like you wouldn’t throw a cashmere sweater into the washer or dryer, luxury rugs require specialty care from experienced hands.
With more than 30 years of experience cleaning residential and commercial rugs, carpets, upholstery and more, Steve Short of A Steve’s Professional Truck Mounted Steam Cleaning knows how to care for even your most precious woven floor art. “I’ve been in business since 1982,” says Steve. “I’m familiar with all sorts of specialty rugs.” With this level of experience, luxury rug owners can rest assured knowing their runners and shags are in good hands.
Steve says the time it takes to clean a luxury rug varies depending on the size and fiber content of the rug, but most cleanings typically take around an hour, and that’s only because Steve uses top of the line equipment that cleans more in less time.
In the more than 30 years that Steve’s been cleaning carpets, he’s learned that nothing is more important than the equipment used, which is why he uses a state of the art truck-mounted rotary machine for all of his cleanings.
Because the rotary machine has more revolutions per stroke than more common handheld devices, the rotary machine gets the job done better, faster. It also extracts water as it cleans, which helps cut back on dry time. In addition to using top of the line equipment, Steve also brings decades of industry experience to each job and takes care to use a gentle cleaning solution and lukewarm water when cleaning luxury rugs, ensuring that no harm is caused to the delicate fibers.
Steve recommends having your luxury rugs cleaned at least once a year — or more if the rug is located in a busy part of your home.
