Did you know the air in your home can be up to one hundred times more polluted than the air outside? Carpeting acts like an air filter, trapping the pollutants tracked into your home. Regular carpet maintenance is imperative to remove these allergy-causing particles from carpeting and to maintain indoor air quality.
The textiles in your home build-up accumulated soils and debris from every-day use. This accumulated soil comes from:
• soils and debris we bring in on our shoes including pollen, pet dander, dust mites, pesticides, bacteria, and even mold spores;
• spills from food, drinks, and who knows what else;
• all the air borne dust, oil and grease from cooking, smoke and every other pollution that gets deposited in the carpet.
With these drawbacks, why use carpet? Wouldn’t it be better to remove the carpeting and just have hardwood or tile floors? After all, many children suffer from asthma and other allergies. Even many doctors suggest removing the carpet to help with these kinds of problems.
Pollutants are tracked onto all types of floor coverings, but carpeting traps more lint and dust than smooth surfaces. The truth is carpet acts like a giant filter on the floor which traps and collects soil. Compare this with a hard floor surface that cannot grab these same contaminates. They continue to swirl around the room like dust bunnies or become air borne with the slightest air movement.
Poorly maintained carpet can allow large quantities of dust and debris to build up on carpet, causing significant quantities of particles to be released into the air during the course of daily activity. Regularly removing these particles through regular vacuuming and periodic steam extraction cleaning extends the life of the carpet, removes many of the allergens which can trigger asthma and other allergies, and provides a healthier indoor environment for the home’s occupants.
