Area rugs act as a filter for your home, trapping dust, dirt, and bacteria that can accumulate in your home. These particles can cause allergies, respiratory issues, and even aggravate certain medical conditions. Regular cleaning of your area rugs is essential to maintaining a healthy living environment. Be Green can help to ensure that your area rugs are thoroughly cleaned, sanitized and refreshed, providing a healthier living environment for you and your family.

Area rugs are a popular and versatile floor-covering option for many homes and businesses. In addition to adding warmth and texture to a space, area rugs can also help to protect your floors and reduce noise. However, like any other type of floor covering, area rugs can become dirty and stained over time. It is essential to clean them regularly to maintain their appearance and extend their lifespan.

One of the primary reasons for cleaning area rugs is to remove dirt and grime that can build up on the surface. Dirt and dust can be tracked into your home on the soles of your shoes and quickly accumulate on your area rugs, especially in high-traffic areas. Over time, this can cause the fibers of your rug to become matted and discolored and can lead to the growth of mold and bacteria. Regular cleaning can help to remove this dirt and grime and can help to keep your rugs looking fresh and clean.

Another important reason for cleaning area rugs is to remove stains and spills. Spills and accidents can happen in any home, and if not dealt with promptly, they can lead to permanent stains on your area rugs. Regular cleaning can help to remove these stains before they become difficult to remove and can help to restore your rugs to their original condition.

In addition to maintaining the appearance of your area rugs, regular cleaning is also vital for preserving their longevity. Over time, the fibers of your rug can become matted and worn, which can shorten its lifespan. Regular cleaning can help to prevent this from happening and can help to keep your rugs looking like new for longer.

Overall, cleaning your area rugs is an important part of maintaining the appearance and longevity of your home or business. By regularly removing dirt, grime, and stains, you can help to keep your rugs looking their best and can help to extend their lifespan.

Specialized Equipment

Be Green's expert area rug cleaners are equipped with specialized tools and equipment that are not typically found in a regular household. This includes advanced cleaning machines that use low moisture, specialized solutions, and suction to remove dirt, stains and odors from the fibers of the rug, as well as specialized tools for grooming and agitation.

The Be Green Area Rug Cleaning Process

Your Be Green area rug cleaner can safely and quickly clean your area rug right at home. They will use our same very-low moisture process that is non-toxic and entirely safe for children, pets, and our environment. Our proven rug cleaning process is carefully hand-detailed and, as with our carpet cleaning method, uses 70% less water than traditional steam cleaning.

After carefully examining your rug for stains, condition, and material type, your Be Green area rug cleaning professional will take a 5-Star approach to clean.

  1. Power Rake:
    Our Very-Low Moisture (VLM) area rug cleaning service begins with a dry extraction. During this initial step, your technician will vigorously rake the rug using a nylon pile rake. In this crucial step that will dislodge trapped particles from the base of rug fibers
  2. Professional Vacuum
    After the area rug fibers have been power raked and agitated, the dust and dirt are ready to be removed with a high-powered vacuum cleaner. Your Be Green area rug cleaner will be meticulous, paying special attention to the corners and edges in order to ensure that your rug will not be damaged. If necessary, the rug may be vacuumed from the top and bottom repeatedly. During this step, you may also request for your rug to be trimmed if necessary.
  3. Pretreatment Enzyme: A pretreatment will be applied directly to everyday household stains (such as food and drink spills and high-traffic areas). In addition to being eco-friendly, this enzymatic solution is 100% safe for children and pets. Please note that pet accidents and bodily fluids typically require applications of DeoGerm (a powerful deodorizer with disinfectant properties) to neutralize stubborn stains and odors. Before any work has begun, your carpet cleaning technician will inform you if this is necessary.
  4. Very Low-Moisture (VLM) Cleanse: After the enzyme has digested the oils and proteins, a dry foam cleaning solution is applied by hand and worked into the area rug fibers with a sponge. The VLM method relies on natural encapsulation chemicals that surround and capture dirt instead of “wet“ cleaning, which uses detergents to loosen the dirt. With 70% less water and waste, carpets and rugs are less prone to mold and mildew, and suctioning water out of the carpet is unnecessary.
  5. Final Grooming: This last step, your area rug cleaner will groom the rug pile. This gives your area rug back some of its original luster and fluffiness. As the rug dries, the all-natural enzymes crystallize and are encapsulated by the natural polymers in the cleansing foam. The final results are clean, fresh-smelling rugs that pets and children can safely enjoy until your next appointment. You may also choose to apply a stain Guard for additional protection between professional cleanings.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should rugs be cleaned?

Rugs should be cleaned along with your regular household schedule to keep them looking their best and to extend their lifespan. In general, it’s a good idea to professionally clean area rugs at least once every year or two, depending on how much they are used. A rug in a high-traffic area may need to be cleaned more frequently than a rug in a low-traffic area. Additionally, if a rug is visibly dirty or stained, it should be cleaned as soon as possible to prevent the stain from setting in. When cleaning a rug, it’s important to use the appropriate cleaning methods and products to avoid damaging the rug. For best results, it’s generally recommended to have a professional rug cleaner handle the cleaning process.

How often should rugs be replaced?

Rugs should be replaced based on their condition and level of wear and tear. High-quality rugs can last for many years, but it’s essential to inspect them regularly for signs of damage or excessive wear. If a rug is starting to show signs of wear, such as fraying or discoloration, consider replacing it. Additionally, if a rug is beginning to lose its shape or become uneven, it may be time to replace it. Ultimately, the decision to replace a rug will depend on its condition and how it is used. A rug in a high-traffic area may need to be replaced more frequently than a rug in a low-traffic area.

How much does it cost to have an area rug cleaned?

The cost to have an area rug cleaned will depend significantly on several factors, including the size of the rug, the type of rug, and the type of cleaning method used. Specifically, using a very-low moisture method of cleaning, you can expect to pay between $80 and $150 to have a small to medium-sized rug professionally cleaned. The cost may be higher for larger rugs, ranging from $150 to $300 or more. You may also add a deodorizer or stain guard protection at additional costs.

Is professional rug cleaning worth it?

While it may be tempting to clean your rugs yourself, there are several reasons why professional rug cleaning can be a worthwhile investment, and only reason why it’s not. A professional carpet and rug cleaner will have experience, greater knowledge, and specialized tools that makes it well worth the area rug cleaning cost. However, if your rug is inexpensive, having a professional come out might not be the best solution. There are definitely times when it is cheaper and less hassle (thank you Amazon) to just get an entirely new rug.
