Health Benefits from Rug Cleaning
Carpet and rug cleaning removes bacteria and trapped pollutants.
The Environmental Protection Agency state, that a dirty carpet will hold various sources of interior air pollutants, such as pet dander, lead, dead skin, particles, and everyday dirt and dust. Airborne toxic gases can stick to these particles and be trapped within the carpet or rug. These gases are released via daily activities like vacuuming and foot traffic, which causes them to contaminate the interior air in your house. Professional cleaning services are able to successfully kill these bacteria via specialized shampooing formulas and are able to remove deeply embedded pollutants with the help of high powered vacuums.
Carpet and rug cleaning can kill dust mite infestations.
Most houses have dust mite infestations in them, and yet most homeowners are not aware of these infestations; this is due to the fact the creatures are microscopic. Dust mites aren’t allergens; however, they do leave feces and body parts that are allergens. Because of the size of these particles, they are easily inhaled when a surface is disturbed, as this serves to exacerbate allergies. Most professional carpet cleaners use a method referred to as steam cleaning; when used for carpet and rug maintenance, this process exposes your carpets and rugs to high temperatures which dust mites are not able to survive.
Carpet cleaning helps prevent mold growth.
More so in areas that have high humidity levels, dirty carpets and rugs are at high risk of developing mold when constantly exposed to moisture. In precipitous weather, moisture will be brought into a home, and seep deep in carpet and rug fibres should they not be dried and vacuumed immediately. Getting your carpets and rugs cleaned often will stop mold and mildew from growing. By removing the moisture, you can stop mold from growing, which is extremely harmful to your health when ignored for too long.
