WHY IS PROFESSIONAL CARPET CLEANING SO IMPORTANT?
Professional carpet cleaning is important. Carpet is one of the few things in life that we use every day. We walk on it, our children play on it, our pets lie on it. It’s easy to forget about the fact that we are constantly contaminating our carpets with materials that we would never think of. Things like motor oils, grease and dirt from our shoes. Pet hair, dander and insects like fleas from our pets. Mold spores, allergens, skin cells, and more. Regular professional carpet cleaning can reduce these contaminates greatly.
According to research done by the American Lung Association, “Carpets may trap pollutants like dust mites, pet dander, cockroach allergens, particle pollution, lead, mold spores, pesticides, dirt and dust.”
An article in USA TODAY states that there are “over 100 different kinds of creepy freeloaders” within even the cleanest homes.
The Daily Mail .Com states that researchers have found over 100 species living in the average home. Of the 50 American homes researched, they found 579 species of spiders, beetles, mites, flies and ants.
Many of these creepy little critters think of your carpet as paradise. Just think of them throwing a party with a couple million of their closest friends right under your feet.
These unwanted visitors can cause a number of problems. Indoor air quality can be affected. Allergens get stirred up every time you walk on the carpet. When you vacuum your carpets, you can stir up everything lurking within, sending it floating into the air and eventually you breathe them in. Some of them even feed on your carpet fibers. Over time this is all just plain bad for your carpet.
Regular professional carpet cleaning can reduce these contaminates greatly. Here are 6 reasons why.
1. PROLONG THE LIFE OF YOUR CARPET
Professional Carpet cleaning is something that must be done on a regular basis to get the full use out of your carpet by prolonging its life. Carpets are constantly being spilled on, and stepped on, and this can often result in permanent stains or soiling. Regular professional cleaning can prevent stains and spots from becoming permanent and shortening the life of your carpet.
2. SPOT AND STAIN REMOVAL
When your carpets get spots and stains and they are allowed to soak into your carpet, it becomes harder to remove them. They can soak into the padding under your carpet and even into the underlayment. This can cause mold spores, bacteria, and germ contamination. Without proper treatment, these contaminates can become airborne and cause allergic reactions and health problems. Prompt removal of these stains is essential to prevent permanent damage. Professional carpet cleaning can get those stains out before they set in.
3. AIR QUALITY IN YOUR HOME
Carpets can trap pollutants like mold spores, dust, dirt, pesticides, and other contaminates that can affect the air quality in your home. Pollutants could even affect your family’s health. In addition to airborne pollutants, carpets are also a breeding ground for bacteria, mites, and germs. When carpets become moist and begin to soil, bacteria and germs have the opportunity to build up even further. This buildup may affect your family’s health, resulting in days home from school or work, and visits to the doctor’s office. Regular professional carpet cleaning can maintain good air quality, eliminate harmful bacteria, mites and allergens, and protect your family’s health.
4. CLEAN, HEALTHY APPEARANCE
With professional carpet cleaning, your home will have that fresh, clean look and smell that you love. Have guests over with confidence and take pride in the beautiful, clean look, and smell of your home.
5. YOUR CHILDREN ARE ON YOUR CARPET
Children love to lie on the carpet. They will play, color in coloring books, read, watch TV, and many other activities. When they do, their little faces are closer to all of the allergens, dust mites, mold spores, and other contaminates. Professional carpet cleaning at least once a year, can protect your little ones from these dangers and help to keep them safe and healthy.
6. PETS ARE ALSO ON THE CARPET
Kids are sometimes on the carpet. Your pets are ALWAYS on the carpet. They shed hair, dander falls off of them, and they may even share a few fleas with your carpet. Eventually these contaminates from your family pet can lead to odors, allergens, and flea infestations.
Whether your carpet is brand new or a few years old, you really should keep it as clean as possible. Your family will be healthier when your carpet is free of allergens, dust, and dirt. Your pets will appreciate the clean environment as well.
Regular professional carpet cleaning will prolong the life of your carpet and have your family breathing clean healthy air. Children can play on the carpet without concerns for their health and your pets will love the clean environment you have provided for them.
IMPROVE YOUR HOMES AIR QUALITY
Cleaning your carpets is an excellent way to remove allergens, dust, and all of the little critters that make themselves at home there. However, you can do more to improve your homes air quality.
Air Duct Cleaning is an affordable and effective way to reduce airborne contaminates. You see, when your furnace or air conditioner turn on, they do two things. They blow hot or cold air into your home stirring up all of the dust, allergens and contaminates. They also draw in air from other vents in your home. When they do this they suck in all that unwanted stuff. The furnace filter is designed to catch these air pollutants and keep them from circulating throughout your home. The hard truth though, is that it is not a perfect catch all. A lot of contaminates get past the filter and into your homes ductwork. Over time there can be build up in your ductwork that just keeps getting blown into your living space, then sucked back into the HVAC system. All of this, while you and your family are breathing it in. Those who suffer from allergies or asthma are particularly at risk from these contaminates.
The NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) says that dirty air ducts may contribute to health issues for people with respiratory problems, autoimmune disorders, or asthma and allergies.
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) says that homes can be two to five times more polluted than the outdoors. Just let that sink in for a minute. It may be time to consider getting your carpets and air ducts cleaned.
