What you need to know about your carpet
If you have carpet in your home, you know the kind of abuse it endures on a daily basis. And all of that dirt, dander and other debris that gets trapped in your carpet fibers not only creates a dingy, dirty and even smelly home, it can also create an unhealthy one. As a matter of fact, the American Lung Association has indicated that dirty carpets are the number one contributor to a range of breathing problems from asthma to snoring. And while regular vacuuming can help, at the end of the day, regular steam cleaning is necessary to remove the debris and create a happier, healthier home for everyone. Experts recommend that you have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once per year. Here are some of the benefits of professional carpet cleaning.
Carpet cleaning eliminates trapped pollutants.
The EPA has conducted studies that have shown that there are a number of indoor pollutants lodged in your carpet fibers. Some of these include pet dander, insect allergens, various particle pollutants, dirt and dust. Every time you walk across your carpet, you release some of these pollutants into the air where it can travel to your nose and cause your respiratory system to go haywire.
In addition, toxic gases such as cigarette smoke, VOCs and more can also be trapped. When released, these gases can cause a variety of problems for those breathing them in.
Professional carpet cleaning works in a number of ways to reduce and remove these harmful pollutants from your carpet and from your home. The steam produced by professional carpet cleaning machines have the ability to neutralize a number of pollutants while the shampoo can dislodge and remove many contaminants.
Carpet cleaning can clear out dust mite infestations.
Dust mites are common in many homes and their presence can trigger a range of respiratory problems. Neither they nor their feces can be removed in any way other than having your carpets professionally cleaned. Once again, the steam can kill off existing dust mites while the shampoo and suction action can remove the mites as well as their feces and more. This is the only way that you can rid your home of dust mites and reduce your reliance on allergy medications.
Carpet cleaning can help prevent mold growth.
Mold is a common problem for people who have carpet and live in climates that are exceptionally moist. Mold spores are released in the environment and can easily become trapped in your carpet fibers where it can take hold and begin growing, releasing even more spores into the environment, triggering a range of allergic reactions. This can be especially dangerous for people who already have respiratory issues or have mold sensitivities. Professional carpet cleaning can remove these spores from your carpet and eliminate any mold growth.
