The benefits of carpet cleaning reach beyond extending the life of your carpet and keeping your home fresh and looking its best. One of the best benefits of professional deep carpet cleaning is that it provides a healthier environment for everyone in the home. Allergy sufferers, people with asthma, toes who snore and anyone else with a respiratory difficulty will greatly benefit from a clean and well-kept carpet. In fact, it is recommended that if anyone in your home has respiratory issues you should vacuum at least three times a week.
Here are three ways a home can change for the healthier with regular carpet cleanings:
Eliminates Trapped Pollutants
The Environmental Protection Agency states that a dirty carpet can hold several different indoor pollutants such as pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution and everyday dirt and dust. On top of these things there are toxic airborne gasses that can attach themselves to things hanging out in the carpet and get released with daily activities like walking across the floor. Professional carpet cleaning can kill these deep embedded irritants with the use of special cleaners and powerful equipment.
Clear Out Pesky Dust Mites
The all too well-known and feared dust mite is a common resident in your carpet. There are many homes harboring dust mite infestations in the carpet. Dust mites themselves are not harmful it is the droppings and body pieces they leave behind that cause irritants and allergens. Since dust mites and their left behind parts are so tiny it is easy for them to get kicked up into the air and inhaled causing even more unpleasantness for respiratory sufferers. Carpet cleaning uses hot temperatures that kill dust mites and eliminates the issue.
Prevents Mold Growth
In humid and wet climates like here in the Puget Sound it is not uncommon for carpet to take in moisture. Moist carpet will mold with time. Having carpet professionally cleaned on a regular basis will get deep down to ensure all moisture and mold causing dirt get sucked away and carpet stays clean and healthy..
The cleaner the carpets are in the home the cleaner the air will be. Carpet can work as an air filter in the home, but it will not keep taking in pollutants and trapping them. It works like any filter and when a filter becomes over loaded it ends up in even dirtier air. Keep your home healthy by keeping its biggest filter, the carpet, as clean as possible with a regular professional cleaning.
