Can I Just Steam Clean My Rugs?

If you have a hand made rug there are several risks/results of doing steam cleaning.  The solution used in steam cleaning is an extremely high PH which is very aggressive and meant to cut grease on wall to wall carpeting, NOT Rugs.  This will dry out/damage the wool over years as it remains in the wool.  In addition, the aggressive solutions will often make the dyes run and bleed.  If a rug starts bleeding few know what to do to stop the bleeding and not have major damage to their beautiful rug.  IF you are still willing to take the risk, be sure and ONLY clean the direction of the nap.  Do not go against the nap when wet… you can damage and make stripes on your rug that will be difficult or impossible to remove.  We do NOT recommend steam cleaning unless the fiber is synthetic:  Olefin, Polypropylene, Nylon, Polyester

Have you asked yourself, “What could possibly go wrong if I wash my wool rug at home?”

This customer found out the very hard way on his 80 year old family heirloom.  Luckily he rushed his valuable rug to us where in just a short amount of time was brought back to its vibrant colors and cream background.  Not all rugs with bleeding can have such an amazing transformation but we will ALWAYS give it everything we have for the rug to live another 80 plus years!

Great service!! My rugs look amazing! I’ve been bringing rugs for cleaning to Imperial for 2 decades. They have always been fast and thorough. They have helped restore rugs from pet damage, water stains, moth damage and more.

I'm extremely happy with the job on my four rugs that Imperial just cleaned. It was only after I brought the cleaned rugs home that I realized how much they needed cleaning. Imperial was great to work with and they did exactly what they said they would.

We have two sheep pelt rugs which are amazing and comfy cozy on top of wood floors. The one in our living room was getting pretty beat down and dirty from a couple years of use despite our best attempts to keep it brushed and blown out. It also had some areas where the pelts meet that we’re looking like it was ruined. I didn’t have much hope when I dropped it off other than just coming back clean. I will say they far exceeded my expectations and it looks nearly new! If I had t waited so long maybe the damage at the pelt seems would have never happened. Thanks for the excellent work! They also had excellent turn around time, way faster than expected.

We had a SUPER old dirty/smelly/gross rug that we inherited. It had been used by the dogs as a potty spot, folded over and had crease that started to crack. Was hard as a rock. We thought we had to say good bye to it and send it to the dump. But after working with Imperial Rug Cleaning they said they could save it!! They did!!! It again has COLOR, does not smell, and the memories of it will live on!! They are awesome!!

I was extremely pleased with the initial contact, follow-up conversation at the store about the work on the rug would that would be completed in the cleaning process. They called with other decisions I had to make when they called about some other considerations about cleaning I had to make. I was pleased they called before the work was completed. Very happy with the results and fits great on our new floor.

I bought the rug posted while living in India 10 years ago. Over the years, the rug had collected a lot of dirt and some of the tassels had frayed. When I picked up the rug from Imperial, I almost didn't recognize it. The colors were vivid and quite honestly, it looked better than new, if that is possible. Dave seems very dedicated to his craft and to his community. Dave also will tell you if a rug is not worth cleaning. Highly recommend this company.

This establishment is extremely rude and unprofessional. My encounter with the employees and staff at this cleaning service was horrible. They were unnecessarily aggressive after I tried to ask them several questions. I do not recommend going to this place. I would rather throw my rugs away then pay these people to clean them.

just a warning that the man that owns this shop is very mean and unkind. my car happened to break down in front of his shop, 30 minutes before they closed and he came out, without a mask, tried to open my car door and get closer to talk to me and told me I had to leave because I was parked in his only spot. when I explained my situation (in tears) and that a tow was on the way, he said “nice” and walked away. he then came out once more when help arrived and asked me again when I would be leaving. really disappointed with his negative vibe and lack of basic empathy.

Imperial did a great job of cleaning our rugs several years ago, so when we recently needed repairs on some old family rugs, we took the rugs here. They did an excellent restoration on all three of the rugs we brought them; you cannot tell they were ever damaged. One was severely damaged around the edges, and we had to reduce the length, but unless you knew this, you would not be able to tell. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.

We've used Imperial twice. First, we had purchased a wool rug at a furniture store and discovered a small cut on it after a few weeks. They made a repair and gave us great advice about caring for the rug. Fast forward a few years later...I took it in for a routine cleaning - and to check it for pet "surprises" in case we missed something. They called before doing the clean to let us know they hadn't found anything tough to remove. Just picked up the rug and it looks great! Really friendly business owners who know what they are doing. The cost of the service is worth the piece of mind knowing they are honest and professional.

Just had my rug cleaned by Imperial Rug Cleaning. It is a rug that has literally never been cleaned once, that I purchased 18 years ago. It is a wool rug that I purchased in Nepal. It has a lot of sentimental value to me. It's condition began to concern me. I saw the sign for Imperial Rug Cleaning and decided to give them a try. I figured what could it hurt at this point. The rug didn't appear to me that it could be cleaned, in its entirety. When I got to the store, they came out, assessed the rug, got me all set up and told me that this rug would look beautiful after a good cleaning. They told me about the process and said they would call in about two weeks when it was done. About a week later I got a call the rug was done. When I got it home and rolled it out I was absolutely astonished. They did a superb job. The rug looked brand new. The degree to which the rug got cleaned was far far beyond my expectations. I really couldn't believe it. It smelled fresh, felt fresh and clean. Some of the wear problems and such had all but vanished, spots of spilled oil that dotted the rugged were gone. Just a superb job. My rug has new life and is again a warm addition to the home. Thank you so much for the outstanding professional clean job performed on my rug. I will be back and would suggest this service to anyone needing rug cleaning services.

We have an antique rug that belonged to one of my husband's late relatives. It came to us with a corner ripped and looked faded, and it was full of dust and cat hair. We took it to Imperial Rug Cleaning, and it came back to us looking like a brand new rug! The colors were bright and they even fixed the ripped corner! I would highly recommend Imperial if you have a valuable rug that is starting to look old. They do a great job.

When it comes to getting your rug cleaned, Imperial Rug Cleaning in Longmont is the BEST! We have a sheepskin rug that had a couple of pet stains that I thought would not come out, but Imperial Rug Cleaning got the stains out. What's more, the stains haven't resurfaced and the rug has been creamy white ever since it's been cleaned.

Imperial was very helpful in providing information about my rugs and how to identify quality rugs when a replacement should be needed (the ones I have are not heirlooms but ones I picked up because I liked the print and colors). I would highly recommend Imperial especially if you have high quality or heirloom rugs.
