Unclean carpets equal unclean air
Your home might feel clean but is it? You might be surprised to learn that sometimes the air quality in our homes can be just as bad, if not worse than it is outside. Pollution is one thing, but you’ve dirt to consider too. When you or your family treads in pavement dirt, mud and dust and goodness knows whatever else is out there, it often ends up coming inside your home on the bottom of your shoes. Now, naturally most of the time you’ll notice mud or dust on your carpet and sweep or vacuum it up. However, what you can’t see are the tiny, microscopic bits of dirt, dust, food and pollen that get trod in and settle on your carpet.
As you move around your home or your children crawl or play on the carpet or rug, these particles escape into the air, circulating and we end up breathing them. The result? The particles bring on conditions such as asthma and other related allergies.
Unfortunately, even the strongest of vacuums daily is not enough to completely remove harmful particles. The answer is to use a professional cleaning service, which with specific cleaners and technical knowledge can remove these unseen particles, thereby improving the quality of your air and transforming your carpets.
How does using a professional carpet cleaning service care for your family’s health? By removing:
Mould and mildew
Food, drink and anything that gets damp will produce mould and mildew. The smell of mouldy, wet carpet is bad enough, but when you combine this with the dangerous spores, you are asking for trouble. Regular carpet cleaning will remove mould and mildew spores which are responsible for causing mild to severe respiratory illnesses and are also known to trigger diseases.
Uninterrupted sleep is a must for everyone, especially your children. When they’re blocked up or chesty thanks to pollutants and dust in your carpet it can seriously affect their sleep (and yours). Cleaning carpet on a regular basis will help them to sleep more soundly and to wake re-energised, invigorated and ready to face the day’s challenges, whatever they might be.
While vacuuming gets rid of any dirt and dust particles in your carpet, a thorough deep clean is essential as it gets rid of pet dander, pollutants and other toxic gases. A clean carpet will reduce airborne contamination in your home and improve the air quality, leaving you free to enjoy fresh, unpolluted air.
Microscopic mites will breed and infest carpets if left untreated. If the thought of them isn’t bad enough, the mites’ faeces are responsible for causing allergies and reactions such as a runny nose and itchy eyes but can also generate serious respiratory illnesses such as asthma, wheezing and difficulty breathing.
Gives you back energy
Dirty carpets can zap energy, even that of the youngest and otherwise healthiest of kids. As you care about your family’s health it’s important to notice if they are feeling lethargic and out of breath. Using a professional carpet cleaning service on a regular basis will mean that your family breathes easier and feels more energetic.
How to maintain your carpets
We recommend that you regularly vacuum your carpet to remove everyday dirt and dust. Doing so will help to reduce the build-up of illness-causing allergens. However, you still need to use a professional carpet cleaner to eradicate allergens and microscopic matter. By creating a healthier environment for your family, you will notice how they breathe more easily and are unhampered by runny noses, sneezing or lethargy.
