How Can A Professional Carpet Cleaning Help My Health?

No matter the number of times that you clean your carpet with your vacuum, it may not be enough to eliminate harmful allergens and toxins. You may not think much about the impact that the cleanliness of your carpet can have on your health and wellbeing. However, neglecting routine cleaning of your carpet or poorly cleaning your carpet can leave you with unwanted microorganisms that could put you and your family at risk for certain illnesses. A professional carpet cleaning that goes deep beneath the surface can aid in keeping you healthy. The question is, how? Keep reading to learn more.

Helps to Improve Air Quality 

There are a lot of hidden dangers in a carpet that is poorly maintained. Your carpet may trap pollutants such as dirt and dust, allergens, dust mites, mold spores, pet dander, particulate matter, and lead. Without a warning and your realization, contaminants can readily absorb into your carpet fibers and later transfer from person to person, and into the air circulating in your home. This leaves you breathing the contaminated air. Professional carpet cleaning can help eliminate harmful bacteria and allergens trapped in your carpet. Some professional cleaners employ the use of an EPA-Approved hospital-grade sanitizer to effectively rid your carpet of roughly 99.99% of household contaminants.

Prevention of Mold and Mildew Growth

The location of your carpet and your method of cleaning can cause your carpet to develop mold and mildew. The steam method of carpet cleaning can cause water to remain in your carpets for an extended period, and the longer it takes to dry out, the greater the likelihood of creating an environment that’s conducive to mold and mildew growth. Also, if your carpet is sitting in a space that is humid and subject to temperature swings, or below ground, like a basement, this can increase the risk for mold and mildew to take over your carpet. Mold and mildew can trigger allergic reactions in some people, from hives to an asthma attack. Professional carpet cleaning can involve the use of hot carbonated extraction (H.C.E.), which sends countless microscopic bubbles into your carpet to extract dirt from your carpets, relying on a super-heated, low-moisture process. Less moisture means a lower risk for growth and mildew development in your carpet.

Removal of Residue That Attracts Dirt & Germs

Oftentimes, your method of DIY carpet cleaning, like steam cleaning can leave residue from soaps and cleaning chemicals behind on your carpet. Residues create a problem of their own, attracting dirt, grime, and germs into your carpet. Professional cleaning solutions can prevent this residue build-up, using little or no harsh chemicals and soaps. You may be able to find some professional carpet cleaners who offer green cleaning solutions and use only natural cleaning products that won’t leave behind any nasty residue.
