How does Carpet Cleaning Improve your Indoor Air? A comprehensive Look
Almost every home in the world has carpet somewhere, and at some point it will actually require cleaning. Some people put this off because the carpet does not look as if it needs cleaned, or because they simply do not have the money. Believe it or not, failing to clean your carpet regularly can be a health hazard that you may not have even considered.
A carpet contains everything, believe it or not. Anything that falls on the floor, from dirt, to dander, all the way to micro-bacteria. These are all things that could sit hidden within your carpet and not all of these things create obvious stains. Quite frankly, your carpet could become a mine field of disease and bacteria if you don’t clean it often.
When we say clean the carpet, we don’t just mean sweep it, though that couldn’t hurt. We do, in fact, mean a deep cleaning using a professional service.
So what makes a professional cleaning service better than your sweeper exactly? First of all, when you use a carpet cleaner, you are steaming the carpet which heats it, thereby freeing the dust, allergens, and germs from the carpet. Once they have been loosed, they can be sucked into the carpet cleaner and the healing can begin. The carpet will then be completely cleaned using a special formula, giving you carpets that look like new once again.
It’s up to you in the end, but you will prevent illness and infections along the lines of .coli, salmonella and staphylococcus if you keep your carpets cleaned. In addition to that you will deter dust mites which often take up residence in residential carpet. The ball is in your court now, so keep it clean!
