Aside from improving the longevity and aesthetics of your carpet, perhaps the most important reason why you need to have your carpet regularly cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner is related to health – especially with regards to breathing and other respiratory issues. This service (or moving-in moving out cleaning in particular) becomes more important if you are moving into a new property.
•Removing Trapped Pollutants. Carpets, both thin and thick ones, can harbor a wide array of indoor pollutants including pet dander, allergens, and everyday dust and dirt. Even toxic particles like lead and others can get trapped in the carpet’s fibres, which can then rise to the air (as you walk over the carpet) and be inhaled. This can trigger asthma attacks, allergic reactions, or even lead to serious respiratory problems.
•Eliminating Dust Mite Infestation. Dust mites are microscopic creatures that thrive indoors especially in furniture, beddings, and carpets. In general, a female dust mite can lay up to sixty to one hundred eggs in five weeks – and the speed by which they multiply can lead to an infestation in no time. In addition, a dust mite can produce up to 2,000 pieces of fecal matter in their ten-week lifespan. Both the eggs, the fecal matter, and other enzyme-covered dust particles can trigger asthma and allergic rhinitis
•Preventing Mold and Mildew Growth. In places with high humidity levels, mold and mildew are common occurrences. They can grow on almost any part of the house – from the basement to the attic, as well as on the furniture and other items like your carpet. With regards to carpets, mold and mildew growth are often due to the natural moisture absorbed by the carpet, or if the carpet is washed but not thoroughly dried. Mold and mildew are dangerous to health since they can cause nasal stuffiness, wheezing and even worse conditions like fever and obstructive lung diseases.
•Improving Your Indoor Air Quality. Removing the dirt and dust on the surface of your carpets alone will help very little in improving the air quality of your home. In order to truly achieve cleaner and healthier breathable indoor air, you need to have your carpets cleaned thoroughly by a professional carpet cleaner.
As you can see from the above paragraphs, there are certainly many benefits that can be had from a professional carpet cleaning service. Not only will is help to preserve your investment, but also help to keep you and your family healthy. So when moving to your new home or office, don’t skimp on initial cleaning services – the benefits to be had from this service definitely worth spending on.
