Professional carpet cleaning helps your family breathe easier and reduces the risk of health problems. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a dirty carpet can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution, and everyday dirt and dust. Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and also get trapped within the carpet. All Pro Floor Care carpet cleaning services kill these bacteria through special shampooing formulas and can remove deeply trapped pollutants with high-powered vacuums.
Scientific evidence shows that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Therefore, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
Carpet cleaning removes trapped pollutants. According to EPA research, home carpets provide a place for germs, bacteria and mold to grow. Carried in through the air, allergens can be found on furniture, floors, and other surfaces around the house. Norovirus, a germ linked to stomach flu, can survive on an unclean carpet for more than one month. While no home can be completely allergen-free, professional carpet cleaning can help reduce the number of allergens.
Humans shed skin scales which in turn feed dust mites. Carpeting, bedding, and fabric upholstery provide them with a safe place to live. As a result, rooms that are used most in the home such as bedrooms, play rooms and living rooms are ideal breeding grounds for the dust mite. Dust mites that can inflame your lungs can also give you red eyes or a runny nose ; buildup in your carpet can aggravate an allergy attack.
Dust mites themselves aren’t allergens, but they often leave behind feces and body fragments which are. Because of the microscopic size of these particles, they can easily be inhaled when the area is disturbed. Many professional carpet cleaning companies like All Pro Floor Care use steam cleaning. Dust mites can’t survive these high temperatures.
Having a clean carpet is not only good for your body but your mind as well. A clean home is more relaxing and less stressful. You can relax and enjoy your guests without worrying about stains or odors. Moreover, cleaning your carpet regularly will greatly improve your sleep.
One of the best but intangible benefits is a fresh smelling home. Sometimes, moisture can get underneath the carpet and carpet pad, leading to musty odors. This dampness can come from humidity, spills or even potted plants that drip onto the carpeting. A flood can also carpet odor, such as when a finished basement floods during a rainstorm. And any home with pets is susceptible to smells from hair, dander, and skin oils that you four foot friends share on comfy carpet.
