Pet safe carpet cleaning

Sep 2, 2015   //   by Ema   //   Blog Topics  //  No Comments

Many household cleaners can have a negative effect on human health, but did you know they can be just as dangerous to your pets, too? This is especially true when it comes to cleaning your carpets.

Steam cleaning, the method Environmental Carpet Care specializes in, is the safest around pets.

Steam cleaning, the method Environmental Carpet Care specializes in, is safest for pets.

Unlike people, dogs and cats spend a fair amount of time close to the carpet, whether they’re walking or laying down for their afternoon nap. Some carpet cleaners contain toxic residues that animals can pick up on their paws and fur and then ingest during self-grooming. Steam cleaning, the method that Environmental Carpet Care specializes in is the safest.

So ensure you use only safe, yet effective, products to keep your pet healthy around carpet cleaning. When we say safe, we mean non-toxic, natural ingredients, no harsh irritants and friendly for the environment. Our steam cleaning meets all these standards.

Water is typically the best choice for pet safe carpet cleaning, natural cleaners are safer than their commercial alternatives. If you need to remove a light stain and odor in the house, apply an even layer of baking soda on your carpet, let it sit for an hour, and then vacuum thoroughly. It’s safe for most pets and just as effective as commercial carpet powders. Diluted white vinegar or lemon juice mixed with salt can be used to remove stains or as a pre-stain treatment right before you use a wet vac for cleaning.

There are numerous pet-safe deodorizers and stain removers that you can use for quick spot cleaning, as detailed here on Cesaer Milan’s website.  The two main ingredients to avoid for your pet when using a stain remover or household product are:

chlorine – can irritate eyes and skin.

ammonia – can cause sneezing and watery eyes.

We all love our pets and want the best for them, so if you need your carpets cleaned and you have animals in the house, call us for pet safe carpet cleaning.


Expert service for Malibu carpet cleaning & rug care

Aug 14, 2015   //   by Ema   //   Blog Topics, Latest News  //  No Comments

Area rugs add character and warmth to a room.  They often reflect your personality, taste in art, and may even carry a bit of your ancestry, so naturally you want to care for them and keep them looking great.  Whether it’s your luxurious Gabbeh, priceless Nain, precious Serapi or Kilim, or your favorite Shabby Chic, you want your fine area rugs to glow with all their original character and beauty.

Malibu carpet cleaning

Call the Malibu carpet cleaning experts to clean and care for your area rugs.

The only way to protect your investment and maintain its beauty is with regular professional cleaning. Environmental Carpet Care, the leading service for Malibu carpet cleaning and rug care, provides safe, effective, and powerful area rug cleaning by experienced technicians.

Our complete care process guarantees the proper servicing or your fine area rugs each and every time.

First, we’ll measure your rug and carefully inspect for spots, stains, and other soiling requiring special attention, and we’ll determine a price for cleaning.  We’ll also assess wear patterns and repair needs which can help you make informed decisions about how best to prolong the life and beauty of your rug.

When your rug arrives at our facility, we first give it a dry treatment commonly called ‘dusting’.  This is the most important step in our process of cleaning any rug.  Air dusting machines use compressed air blown into a rug combined with gentle machine vibration.  This dislodges and blows dust and soil out from underneath and between fibers.  A powerful vacuum then sucks up the dislodged dust and particulates. This process is commonly used to clean fine area rugs of a delicate construction that would be unable to withstand the shampooing process.

Dusting can remove pounds of dirt and soil from your rug.  We monitor the process and control the duration and level of vibration for each rug; we repeat the process as needed for rugs with problematic areas or large amounts of soil.

We use environmentally friendly, safe cleaning agents to ensure that your rug colors are restored to their best and that dyes remain stable and do not transfer.  The nature of the rug will dictate the actual process we use to shampoo it.  Your rug may be wet with power sprayers and shampooed with brushes that scrub and deep clean the rug.  Alternatively it may require immersion in a special washtub that provides gentle agitation without the use of brushes or power spraying.  Either way, our process and systems are safe and you can trust your heirlooms and precious pieces with us.

When your rug is clean we use a state of the art rinse and wring machine process to gently and quickly remove the cleansing agents and any excess water.  This speeds the drying process, so your rug will be back in your home without waiting weeks as is sometimes the case with other methods.

Finally, we dry your rug on special racks designed to support your rug while circulating large volumes of clean air.  Supporting your rug prevents distortion of the shape and eases stress on the weave and fibers of the rug while it dries.  Continuous circulation with fresh air speeds the drying process.

We monitor your rug throughout the cleaning and drying process and once completely dry your rug undergoes a final detailed inspection by our professionals.  When the rug looks perfect, it will be wrapped and delivered to your home.

Environmental Carpet Care recommends deep cleaning most area rugs every two years to remove allergens, dust mites, sand, dirt and hair that are trapped in your area rug fibers. Regular area rug cleaning will prolong the life and beauty of your area rug.

Malibu carpet cleaning- offices

Jun 13, 2015   //   by Ema   //   Blog Topics, Latest News  //  No Comments

This week we were in Malibu carpet cleaning at a local office. The stains were extensive and had been embedded in the carpet for a long time.

One of our goals as professional cleaners is to help businesses save on their initial carpeting investment and prolong the life of the carpet.

Office or commercial carpets are always much more soiled than residential carpets. The carpet stains at this Malibu office ranged from deeply embedded coffee spills to dark dirt and grime in high traffic areas. There were some ink stains as well.

Our team easily coordinated around business hours and did the carpet cleaning in the evening.

The wall-to-wall carpets received an extra long and thorough steam cleaning and the results were dramatic. The entire office looked better and it was back to business the next morning.

See the before and after photos of this Malibu carpet cleaning job below.
