Carpet cleaning is something that can improve the appearance of your entire home and extend the overall life of your carpet. However, there are even more benefits that you are going to get from area rug cleaning on a regular basis. In this article, we will be going over some of the clear benefits of getting your area rugs professionally cleaned regularly.
Benefits Of Area Rug Cleaning.
- Area Rug Cleaning Gets Rid Of Pollutants That Are Trapped.
According to the EPA, a dirty carpet is one that can retain all kinds of indoor air pollutants. These air pollutants include pet dander, lead, particular pollution, and cockroach allergens. Also, it can contain all kinds of everyday dust and dirt. Thus, toxic gasses can ultimately be released into the air through various activities including vacuuming, walking across the carpet, and more.
All of these activities can end up contaminating the air and causing all kinds of problems. Professional carpet and area rug cleaning is the only way to kill the bacteria in your carpets and area rugs through special shampoo formulas, and they can even help to remove deeply trapped pollutants stuck in your carpets and area rugs through the use of high-powered vacuums.
- Carpet and Area Rug Cleaning Can Clear Out Dust Infestations.
Another benefit that you are going to be able to get from professional carpet and area rug cleaning is the ability to clear out dust-mite infestations. The truth is, a lot of homes suffer from these dust-mite infestations which can cause a lot of different problems in your home. While dust mites aren’t themselves allergens, the feces and fragments that they leave behind are.
Since these particles are microscopic, they are easily inhaled when their area is disturbed. This means that you might suffer from allergies, or anyone that is in the home might suffer from allergies due to having infestations within your carpets and area rugs.
The good news is that a professional carpet cleaning service can effectively eliminate these infestations through the use of a technique that is referred to as steam cleaning. This is a technique that exposes your carpets and area rugs to extremely hot temps that dust mites are going to be unable to survive.
As you can see, there are plenty of different benefits that you will get from investing in a professional carpet and area rug cleaning service. Be sure to choose to get your carpets and area rugs cleaned regularly in order to really experience the benefits of them.

Offsite Rug Cleaning
Beverly Hills Carpet Cleaners boasts its own state-of-the-art rug cleaning facility which is located in the Palms area of Los Angeles. We offer our customers the option to either drop off rugs for cleaning or, have us pick up and return the rugs. Our highly skilled technicians are trained to clean and care for your rugs with the utmost of care. Each rug is treated with special attention and our 4 step cleaning process is customized for each particular type of fiber, whether natural or synthetic, such as wool, cotton, jute, silk, polyester, nylon, acrylic and more. We are fully prepared to clean and restore any rug, no matter what size, or how soiled. With over 1,000 square feet of facility space, Beverly Hills Carpet Cleaners can clean, sanitize, and dry up to 20 rugs at once.
Packaging and Returning
Once your rug is completely dry, we will do a final inspection to make sure stains, spots and odors have been treated as best as possible. After it passes inspection, we then roll it up, wrap it in industrial strength plastic, and hermetically seal it. We will contact you once your rug is ready for pick up or schedule a delivery date and time to return your rug(s).
The Cleaning Process
Upon receiving a rug, we immediately remove all insoluble soils with a high-powered vacuum. We make sure to extract as much dry soil as possible before getting it wet to avoid wicking, which is when soils resurface after cleaning. Then we extract insoluble soils through hot-water extraction, or steam-cleaning. Our facility has an abundant water source and is well-powered, allowing us to use as much water needed to make each rug as clean as possible while also adjusting the pressure and heat of the water to any high PSI and temperature needed. After the cleaning process is complete we focus on any specific issues the rug may have, primarily removing stains/spots and bad odor. We hand-remove any stains or spots to the best possible results using proper chemicals and techniques. Usually all rugs, whether they smell bad or not, are treated with the proper enzymes to improve odor. But odors that smell particularly bad, whether due to pets, urine, feces/poop, or any other protein-based substance such as food, beverages, or blood, are given extra attention and can all be eliminated.
The Drying Process
Once the cleaning process is completed, rugs are usually wet and must be put to dry immediately. Our drying process is what makes Beverly Hills Carpet Cleaners unique and stand-out from the competition. Each rug is put onto our hanging rack, which can hold up to 12-14 rugs at once. By keeping each rug suspended on the rack, every last fiber and inch of the backings is exposed to air. This alone exponentially increases drying time compared to anywhere else. We then blast multiple fans at once onto the rugs, maximizing ventilation. Hanging the rugs on the rack and ventilating them with fans is generally enough for drying synthetic rugs. For natural rugs such as wool, silk, and cotton, they take longer to dry and because of this are more prone to wicking. To compensate for this, we use a dehumidifier that absorbs all the moisture out of the rugs. This eliminates all dampness that usually remains deep in natural fibers. Our process combined with our technology allows rugs to dry completely in 2-3 hours on average.
