Yes, carpet cleaning makes your home look cleaner and will lengthen the life of your carpet, but perhaps the most valuable benefit from the process is improving your and your family’s health.
According to the American Lung Association, if anyone in your household suffers from conditions that can affect breathing, such as snoring or asthma, it’s especially crucial that you vacuum your carpets at least three times a week.
Beyond vacuuming regularly, you may also benefit from having your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. If you’re not fully convinced of the benefits of professional carpet cleaning, consider the following top three ways the process leads to a healthier home:
1. Carpet cleaning eliminates trapped contaminants.
The Environmental Protection Agency says a dirty carpet can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution, and everyday dirt and dust.
Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and also get trapped within the carpet. These toxic gases can be released through everyday activities such as vacuuming and walking across the carpet, which can cause them to contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet cleaning services kills these bacteria through special shampooing formulas and can remove deeply trapped pollutants with high-powered vacuums.
2. Carpet cleaning can remove dust mite infestations.
Many homes have dust mite infestations, yet most homeowners aren’t aware of the infestation, because the creatures are microscopic. Dust mites themselves aren’t allergens, but they often leave behind feces and body fragments which are. Because of the microscopic size of these particles, they can easily be inhaled when the area is disturbed, which can exacerbate allergies.
All-Star Chem-Dry offers Dust Mite Anti-Allergen treatment to eliminate the allergic condition from dust mites.
3. Carpet cleaning can help prevent mold growth.
Especially in areas with high humidity levels, dirty carpets are at a high risk of developing mold growth when exposed to moisture. In precipitous weather, moisture frequently gets tracked into the home and can sink deep in the carpet fibers if not dried and vacuumed immediately.
Having your carpet cleaned regularly can prevent mold and mildew growth with Chem-Dry’s drier system. It cleans the carpet, but does not get the pad wet. By eliminating moisture, you can prevent mold growth that can be harmful to your health if ignored for too long.
