What's in Your Carpet?
Do you know what’s really hiding (or worse - living!) in your carpets? Here are the top three reasons to have your carpets professionally cleaned:
Carpet cleaning eliminates trapped pollutants.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, dirty carpets retain many sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, bug and insect allergens, lead, particle pollution, and everyday dirt and dust. Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and also get trapped in the carpet.
Everyday activities like vacuuming and walking across the carpet release these particles and contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet cleaning services kill bacteria with high heat and special shampooing formulas and remove deeply-trapped pollutants with high-powered, truck-mounted vacuums.
Carpet cleaning can clear out dust mite infestations.
Many homes have dust mite infestations but most homeowners don’t know it because they are microscopic. Dust mites themselves aren’t allergens but they leave behind feces and body fragments that are.
When the area is disturbed, these microscopic particles are easily inhaled and can exacerbate allergies. Steam cleaning at high temperatures will ensure dust mites don’t survive.
Professional carpet cleaning enhances the value of your home.
Carpet is expensive to replace. But regular professional cleaning removes stains and refreshes fibres, giving old carpets new life. Newer carpets can be “perked” up and kept looking new for lasting enjoyment.
