You know that carpet cleaning gets rid of carpet stains, but can dirty carpet affect your health?
Indoor air quality is one of the leading health risks in our society today. Indoor air may contain allergenic particles, VOCs, and other particulate matter that may trigger allergic reactions, asthma attacks, or headaches, nausea and other "sick building" symptoms. Indoor air can easily be between two to five times more polluted than outdoor air.
Americans tend to spend a lot of time indoors, whether it is at home, at work, shopping, or in the car, bus, train or other vehicle. In fact, studies have shown that Americans may spend up to 90% of their time indoors.
Carpet collects all these other particles in addition to dust. While a good HEPA filtering vacuum can remove many of these particles without re-releasing them into the air, it won't get them all. You can remove more particles from within carpets with professional carpet cleaning.
If your carpet is installed over concrete, chances are that dust mites are thriving. This is because the concrete holds in moisture, making for a higher relative humidity in the floor area, right where the carpet is. Higher humidity means more dust mites. You also may be more likely to have more dust mites if you have a pet - dust mites do well in dander-rich environments.
Carpet steam cleaning can be used to get rid of dust mites in the carpet. Together with air duct cleaning, mattress cleaning, and upholstery cleaning, they can constitute a whole house cleaning solution for dust mite allergies.
