Your Carpet is the Biggest Air Filter in Your Home

You can prevent particles and allergens from re-entering the air by trapping them in your carpet.

Carpets have the ability to trap and hold onto airborne particles such as dust, dirt, pet dander, and allergens. When these particles settle onto the carpet, they are less likely to become airborne and circulate in the indoor environment. This can potentially lead to improved indoor air quality by reducing the number of particles that people breathe in.

Did you know experts recommend having your carpets cleaned at least once a year, and as often as every 3-6 months if your family has young children and pets? That’s because carpets trap all sorts of dirt and debris, which can cause odors, staining and even reduce the life of your flooring.

All Kleen uses truck-mounted cleaning systems that sanitize your carpets safely and effectively with OSHA-certified environmentally friendly products.

Our systems create steam by heating water to 220 degrees, and then they simultaneously inject and extract water from your carpet. This provides superior cleaning and also limits the amount of moisture left behind, so your floors are dry in a matter of hours.

However, it’s important to note that while carpets can help capture some particles, they are not as efficient as dedicated air purifiers or HVAC filtration systems. Over time, carpets can become saturated with particles and allergens, and if not properly maintained through regular vacuuming and cleaning, they could actually contribute to indoor air pollution.

So while carpets do have some air filtering properties, they should be considered as just one part of an overall strategy to improve indoor air quality, which might include proper ventilation, air purifiers, and regular cleaning routines.

Testing indoor air quality is important for ensuring a healthy living environment.

The Pacific Northwest is known for its damp climate, which can lead to increased humidity levels indoors. High humidity can contribute to mold growth, dust mites, and other allergens. Testing for moisture levels and mold spores can help identify potential issues. The combination of consistent rainfall and mild temperatures in the Pacific Northwest can create conditions conducive to mold growth. Testing can help you detect mold early, preventing it from becoming a larger and more expensive problem. The region’s lush vegetation and flora can lead to higher pollen counts and allergen levels. Indoor air quality testing can help identify the presence of allergens and guide strategies to reduce their impact on your health.

Poor indoor air quality can lead to discomfort and health issues, especially for individuals with respiratory conditions or allergies. Testing can provide peace of mind about the air you and your family are breathing.
