Carpeting is the most common floor covering in the country. Nearly every home in America has carpeting in at least one room of the house. Many are covered wall-to-wall throughout the entire home, with the exception of the bathroom and kitchen. We are surrounded by carpeting and keeping them clean (and not just vacuuming once in a while) will benefit your physical and mental well-being.
Allergies and asthma are common in today’s world. We are surrounded by pollen and other pollutants that affect our health on a daily basis. However, no matter how much you clean, how often you dust, and what other measures you take to ensure a healthy environment in your home, those same pollutants are trapped in your carpet. Vacuuming alone isn’t enough to remove them. Only serious, deep carpet cleaning will remove those harmful particulates.
Remove Dust Mites
Dust mites are microscopic pests that thrive in the dusty environments of carpeting, mattresses, and furniture. Even though you can’t see these tiny insects, they affect your health and can cause damage over time to your home. A thorough carpet cleaning helps to remove dust mites and other insects that you can’t see.
Help Prevent Mold
Mold is one of the most common forms of toxins to family health. In areas of high humidity, moisture is easily trapped in carpeting. Just because you assume that it evaporates doesn’t mean that it will. When moisture lingers long enough, mold is often the result and while you may not see or smell it, mold spores enter the air and into your lungs. Regular carpet cleaning will help ensure that mold is the last thing you need to worry about.
Helps You Feel Better
When you have a clean and orderly home, you feel better. When you have clean carpets, you tend to want to spend more time in the room, together with your family. Coming home to a nice, fresh, clean home can help set your mind at ease and invite you to kick off your shoes and unwind more easily.
Extend the Life of Your Carpet
Every carpet wears down over time. The more foot traffic it experiences and the more dirt that it is exposed to, the more rapidly it will wear out. Cleaning your carpets regularly helps to lengthen the life and appearance of it. A small investment in cleaning increases the value of the carpeting in your home.
Basic Carpet Cleaning Recommendations
It is recommended that you vacuum at least three times a week. Most of us simply don’t have time for that. Even if you are able to keep up with that schedule, a professional carpet cleaning at least once a year is good for your health, your home, and the durability and longevity of your carpets.
