Carpet Cleaning and Your Well-Being

When you cross a carpeted room that has not been cleaned in a while, you can profess your apprehension against pollutants, dust mites, mold, and mildew. If you have not had a professional come to your home to do a professional carpet cleaning in quite some time, then we can guarantee that those things (and much, much more) are what is lurking beneath your feet. If you have any pets, then you can add pet dander to that list as well!

Children and people with allergies and asthma are the most at risk when it comes to the adverse conditions that result from the lack of carpet cleaning. Even the EPA cautions that a dirty carpet can retain pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution, and everyday dirt and dust. Toxic airborne gasses have the ability to stick to these particles and get trapped in the carpet. These toxic gasses are then released through everyday activities and contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet cleaning services are able to kill these bacteria.

Dust mites are pretty much everywhere in your home and while they are not an allergen, their waste and body fragments can easily turn you into Sneezy Dwarf. Couple that with mold and mildew which is brought on by humid conditions and you could be wheezing in between sneezes. Mold exposure has also been linked to developmental and behavioral problems. You and your family can breathe easier with a professional carpet cleaning.

Professional Carpet Cleaning vs Renting a Machine

If you believe that you and your family could benefit from a carpet cleaning, it may be tempting to rent equipment at a local store. Be advised that this equipment tends to be significantly less effective than the tools available through a certified professional. Without the proper training and education, you may do more harm than good. That is because if you leave behind too much water, it can provide a hot spot for mold and other microbes to flourish. If the cleaning solution is not completely removed, it can speed up the rate at which the carpet gets dirty.
