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.

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.

Dusting
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.

Shampooing
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.

Rinsing
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.

Drying
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.

Eco Friendly Carpet Cleaning

Dear EarthTalk: My carpets need professional cleaning, but I don’t want chemicals and fumes in my house. Some companies advertise “safe,” but I’m not sure.
— Suzie Franklin DeFazio, via e-mail

Traditional commercial carpet-cleaning solutions contain a cocktail of noxious synthetic chemicals. One, perchloroethylene, commonly called “perc” in the industry, is a notorious dry cleaning additive known to cause dizziness, fatigue and nausea if ingested or inhaled. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also links perc to kidney and liver damage. Another chemical, naphthalene, a solvent manufactured from coal tar, is considered toxic to the human central nervous system and a possible carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Read more >>

Carpet Cleaning in Malibu, Agoura, Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks CA

New carpet can improve the appearance of any room, but how can carpet that is walked on every day continue looking new? To keep your carpet clean, it’s necessary to vacuum regularly with a strong, well-functioning and properly-filtered vacuum cleaner. Unfortunately, due to traffic, children, pets and normal wear, carpet fibers inevitably become soiled, and a dull appearance results. And no matter how much you vacuum, eventually you will need to call a professional carpet cleaner.

Regular professional cleaning using a Certified Firm is as important to your carpet as having a trained mechanic perform routine tune-ups on your car. While your carpet may appear clean on the surface, periodic cleaning by a certified technician can remove what you can’t see and help your carpet retain its fresh, beautiful appearance.
