There are those who believe the only benefit of having their carpets deep cleaned or professionally cleaned is the appearance of the carpet. Nonetheless, they are missing some other major perks. There are actually many advantages including health benefits when your carpets are cleaned correctly. American Hometown Services will share some of these unknown benefits of having your carpets cleaned that go well beyond just having cleaner looking carpets.
Deeper Carpet Cleaning
One benefit of having carpets professionally cleaned is that professional equipment cleans deeper than carpet cleaning machines you can buy or rent at the store. This means we can efficiently remove more of the trapped pollutants located within the carpet. Reports from the Environmental Protection Agency tell us there is dirt, pet dander, cockroach allergens, and particle pollutants that are trapped inside the fibers of carpets. As the carpet is walked on or other similar activity on the carpet, the activity releases these indoor pollutants. Often those with breathing or lung conditions such as asthma or those who suffer from allergies are affected by these pollutants found within our carpets. By having your carpets cleaned with professional grade equipment and training, you will remove much more of these indoor air pollutants, thus improving your indoor air quality.
Get Rid of Infestations of Dust Mites
Secondly most carpet traps dust and dirt and even dead skin flakes. Many homes are unknowingly infested with tiny pests known as dust mites. Dust mites do play a vital role in feeding and removing much of the households dead or shed skin. Dust mites live with you and are in your home; however a major population of dust mites has their negative affect within the household. Dust mites will shed their skin and leave behind feces that also lead to many indoor allergies. Most carpet cleaning companies will steam clean carpets to kill many of the dust mites and remove the allergens they leave behind. Killing the dust mites that reside in your carpets can help reduce the pollution within your home. However there are many other places where dust mites can be found such as air ducts and mattresses.
Bacteria, Mold & Mildew Removal
Most homeowners don’t realize how much bacteria is in their carpets, and when exposed to moisture or even high humidity, this will trigger mold growth. When homeowners replace their carpets they quickly discover how much mold growth was actually underneath them. Those that regularly have their carpet cleaned greatly reduce mold growth within their carpet. There are many harmful molds which can release spores into your indoor air just by a household member walking across it. You can provide a healthier living environment by cleaning your carpet often. Professionals use cleaning agents that kill molds and mildews, especially when water or high levels of moisture have occurred.
