Professional carpet cleaning can improve the appearance of your home and extend the life of
your carpet, and it also has health benefits. While the American Lung Association recommends
that a carpet be vacuumed at least three times each week, cleaning carpets annually provides
additional health benefits.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a dirty carpet can retain indoor air
pollutants including cockroach allergens, lead, pet dander, everyday dirt and dust, and
particle pollution. Toxic airborne gasses stick to the particulate matter and become
trapped in the carpet. Activities such as vacuuming and walking across the carpet can
cause pollutants to be released and contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet
cleaning services kills bacteria through special shampooing formulas while high powered
vacuuming removes trapped pollutants. You’re not just getting a cleaner looking carpet
you’re getting rid of those pollutants!
Dirty carpets are high risk of developing mold when exposed to moisture. This is
especially true for high humidity areas where the carpet is exposed to moisture. Moisture
frequently gets tracked into the home and can sink deep into carpet fibers. Cleaning your
carpet regularly can prevent mold and mildew growth. Professional carpet cleaners have
high powered drying tools to annihilate moisture, which will also prevent mold growth.
Dust mites are microscopic, making it hard to become aware of an infestation. Dust mites
aren’t allergens, but they leave behind feces and body fragments which are. These can
easily be inhaled which can aggravate allergies. Steam cleaning exposes dust mites to
high temperatures they can’t survive. Dust mites can be cleared out with professional
Sufferers of asthma and allergies find breathing easier after carpets have been
professionally cleaned. Vacuuming removes contaminants from the surface of your
carpet. When these contaminants penetrate deep into the carpet, it can make breathing
difficult. Allergen induced attacks can be reduced by improved indoor air quality. Having
carpets cleaned professionally can remove these allergens, making it easier to breathe.
