Health Benefits of Carpet Cleaning
When carpet starts to look dingy, stained or water damaged, that is when most people call in the carpet cleaning professionals. However, even carpet that appears clean should be treated by carpet professionals on a regular basis. Aside from a nicer looking appearance, there are a number of health benefits to having your carpet cleaned by Carpet Keepers.
Here are just a few of the health benefits provided by a thorough, professional carpet cleaning service:
The Environmental Protection Agency notes that dirty carpet can harbor a number of different pollutants such as dirt, dust, pet dander, lead and particle pollution. These particles can transport pollution deep within the carpet by latching on to the particles and becoming embedded. These toxic gases are then released during normal activities such as compression from walking or vacuuming. Once the toxic gases are released they make their way to the air you breathe and affect the air quality of your home.
A professional cleaning service, such as Carpet Keepers, is able to eliminate or minimize these toxins and bacteria by using specially formulated carpet cleaning solutions and extremely high powered vacuums.
Hire a professional carpet cleaning company after water damage event to can help prevent mold growth. Once the mold is present you will need to hire a mold remediation professional which can become very costly. However, if a carpet cleaning service is utilized immediately for water damage restoration jobs or used regularly in damp or moisture-prone areas, the mold may not have the chance to grow.
At Carpet Keepers, we use high powered drying tools and vacuums to remove all the moisture from the area, helping prevent mold growth from occurring. Paying to have moisture prone areas treated regularly can save your health from the effects of mold, and your pocketbook from the heavy expense of mold remediation services.
Dust Mites and Allergens
The high temperatures of a thorough steam clean by a carpet cleaning professional can get deep within the carpet to help kill dust mites. If your carpets are infested with dust mites can cause extreme allergies and breathing difficulties for some individuals. A thorough carpet cleaning service can help remove these allergens and provide fresher air for the home.
