At Dave’s Carpet, we take a professional approach to determining cost for carpet cleaning in Los Angeles. We never employ tricks or gimmicks. With that in mind, here we share a few important factors to help customers understand what goes into the cost of carpet cleaning in Los Angeles.

The most common types of carpet materials are nylon, polyester, wool, cotton, and olefin. Each has unique characteristics that affect the cleaning process.

Natural fibers like cotton and wool can be challenging, especially when stains are involved. Wool must be quick dried while cleaning, or immediately after. Also, the natural fibers in cotton like to cling to soapy residues if left behind and can then cause discoloration in the rug’s base. A high-powered vacuum is essential to remove stubborn soap.

Nylon is used in about half of all carpets. These wear well and resist stains and spots as long as the proper cleaning solutions and methods are used. Nylon carpets respond very well to steam cleaners and detergents. Steam cleaning is the only method that removes dirt deep in the pile of the carpet.

The use of olefin fiber in carpets (sometimes called polypropylene) is gaining popularity for its strength, durability, and easy cleaning. However, it has poor resilience and is prone to crushing. Olefin absorbs oil. Oils can be tracked onto carpets from garages and asphalt driveways or roads. Olefin-specific preconditioners are used to remove oily spots. Oxidizers are also effective on smaller soil particles.

Steam Cleaning is the Recommended Remedy

The best method of carpet cleaning in Los Angeles is typically steam cleaning, which removes more than 90% of dirt and bacteria. Hotwater extraction or steam cleaning uses hot water applied to carpet fibers with a high-pressure wand. The hot water and pressure both work to dissolve loosen thick dirt, mud, dust, and other debris from carpeting, allowing it to be extracted easily. Steam also “fluffs up” matted carpet fibers so that your home’s carpeting looks fresher and feels softer underfoot.

Steam cleaning is also an excellent choice for people with allergies or sensitivities to detergents and shampoos. Steam kills bacteria, germs, mold, mildew, and other irritants, another benefit for those with sinuses issues.

We also offer carpet cleaning solutions for various businesses such as offices, clinics, museums, hotels, buildings, and stores.
