Carpets are an indispensable accessory in a typical North Carolina home. Carpets provide a lot of benefits other than improving the aesthetics of your home’s interior. It has thermal qualities, it’s an effective sound barrier, and it protects your family from slips and falls. The least known benefit of all? It helps maintain the quality of indoor air by acting as a passive filter for micro particles, such as dusts and pollens. The downside of this, however, is that your carpet also houses disease-causing microbes.
For this reason, regular carpet cleaning is important. While carpet cleaning may seem like a task you can handle yourself, it is best done by professionals who are trained to comb through every inch of your carpet, and get rid of the most stubborn dirt. After all, your carpets may be dirtier than you think.
Humans shed dead skin cells almost every hour, which your carpets can trap. Add sweat and food drippings, airborne dust, soil, and pet dander and you have a grand buffet for dust mites, molds, and other tiny insects that can’t be seen with the naked eye. This food source makes these insects and mites stay, along with the nocturnal pests that feast on these particles when the lights are out.
These harmful microbes can cause nasal irritation, breathing difficulty leading to asthma attacks, chronic skin rashes and skin asthma, and fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot. These health hazards make dirty carpets the least safe place to lounge on, particularly for family members with weak immune systems. This doesn’t mean you should get rid of your carpet, only that you should make sure it is cleaned regularly and thoroughly.
While vacuuming two to three times a week is important, a typical vacuum cleaner’s suction and rotating beater brush can’t reach deep into the carpet. The only way to remove this deep down dirt is to subject your carpet to deep cleaning.
