We all know the health damages that dust particles can cause especially on people with breathing complications such as snoring and asthma. There are many benefits to regular carpet cleaning to ensure a healthier living environment for your family and pets. If not for anything else, carpet cleaning will help remove pollutants that are trapped on the fiber. When you have a carpet in your house, you could be harboring any of these pollutants: dust particles, lead pollution, pet dander and cockroach allergens to mention but a few. Also worth a mention is that some toxic airborne gases also tend to find themselves trapped within carpets and rugs. The worst thing is when you have all these pollutants, and your HVAC system is on.
Did you even know that a dirty carpet could be a huge contributor to high energy bills? Think about this for a moment, when you have a dirty carpet, and the HVAC unit is on, chances are high dust particles will be trapped in the system, meaning the performance of the unit will be compromised. Every time you switch on your unit, it means the energy will be used twice as much.
As previously mentioned, toxic airborne gases that get trapped in the carpet will be released every time there is some activity such as vacuuming and walking on the carpet. The good news is you can avoid air contamination by having professional carpet cleaning companies come and do their job of killing the bacteria by use of good quality cleaning detergents and specialized cleaning equipment. Dust mite infestation on your carpets also calls for professional carpet cleaning services. Sadly, dust mite infestation is something that often passes many people due to their tiny nature. Note that these dust mites are harmless until they start leaving behind feces and tiny body particles that are equally microscopic and invisible.
Of course, the microscopic nature of these particles means they can easily get inhaled each time they are disturbed. When you bring in professional carpet cleaning services, they will employ cleaning techniques such as steam cleaning to expose the carpet to extremely high temperatures that the dust mites will find hard to survive. Last but not least, you want carpet cleaning done when you live in extremely humid areas as it means your carpet could be prone to mold growth. Show me a dirty carpet, and I will show you the perfect breeding grounds for stubborn mold. You don’t want to incur an extra cost of having to deal with mold remediation services, now do you?
