Although carpeting offers many benefits including withstanding heavy foot traffic and improving the appearance of any room, unfortunately, it can also accumulate dirt and other unwanted microbes. Here are the top reasons for carpet cleaning.
Eliminate Pollutants by Carpet Cleaning
As beautiful as carpet may be, it is great at retaining pollutants like pet dander, allergens, dust, bacteria, lead and general everyday dirt. Even toxic airborne gases can adhere to the carpet fibers are be released when vacuuming and walking. These gases, when released, pollute the air within the home. Professional carpet cleaning uses special shampoo formulas for killing these bacteria and removes the pollutants using specially designed, high-powered vacuums.
Carpet Cleaning and Dust Mites
Dust Mites are a major concern for asthma and allergies, especially in children and elderly. However, most people don’t realize that dust mites not only reside in bedding but also on carpeting. In fact, dust mites can live anywhere your hands land. With winter approaching (meaning less airflow within the home), dust mites will only get worse. Although you can wrap your mattress in plastic, that is not feasible for carpeting. The simplest way to eliminate dust mites is by steam cleaning your carpets. Professional steam cleaning exposes your carpet to high temperatures that kill dust mites and the high-suctioning power of the vacuums rid the carpeting of dust mite feces and body allergens.
Mold Prevention from having your Carpets Cleaned
While most home owners recognize the important of preventing mold throughout their homes, especially in bathrooms and kitchens where moisture is an issue, most do not realize that in high humidity areas (like Greensboro, NC), dirty carpets are at risk of developing mold. Plus, in rainy weather, water is tracked in and soaks through the carpeting, developing an ideal area for mold to grow. Having your carpet cleaned professionally on a regular schedule can prevent mold and mildew from developing. The tools used by professional carpet cleaners provide high-powered drying tools that destroy both mold and mildew.
In addition to the reasons listed above, professional carpet cleaning also enhances and protects your carpeting. Although most manufacturers recommend a professional carpet cleaning at least every two years, it is also dependent on many other factors. For example, a household with two children and one pet will require more cleaning than a household of one. A good rule of thumb is to schedule a professional carpet cleaning twice a year for a typical family home.
