It’s a brand new year, and many people are making the resolution to get healthier in 2023. Eating right, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep – all of these things can improve your personal health. But have you ever thought about making your home healthy in the new year, as well?
Dirty carpets can affect indoor air quality, which in turn can affect the health of our lungs. Here’s how professional carpet cleaning can help you improve the health of your home (and that of you and your family)!
Removes Pollutants and Allergens
Over time, carpets accumulate a variety of pollutants and allergens, including dust, dirt, pet dander, and mold spores. This is a particular problem in high traffic areas, where the dirt and other contaminants can get ground deep into the carpet fibers and become extremely difficult – if not impossible – to remove by just vacuuming.
If you or someone in your family has allergies, asthma, or other lung conditions, these contaminants can make it hard to breathe. Professional carpet cleaning can remove these pollutants and allergens and improve the air quality in your home for you and your loved ones.
Eliminates Bacteria and Germs
In addition to dust and dirt, bacteria and germs lurk in carpets, especially in areas that get a lot of heavy use. Most professional carpet cleaning services utilize high-temperature water and specialized cleaning solutions to kill these microorganisms, thus helping to prevent the spread of illness. This is especially important during the cold weather months, when we’re spending a lot more time indoors!
Reduces the Risk of Pests
Pests such as fleas and dust mites are a major health hazard; they thrive in dirty carpets and can cause allergies and other respiratory problems. Fleas can also bite and cause skin irritations. Keeping your pet up-to-date on its flea medication will help, but to rid your carpet of both fleas and dust mites, your best bet is to have it professionally cleaned.
Extends the Life of Your Carpet
Your carpeting is a major investment in your home – keeping it clean beyond just vacuuming will not only make your home healthier, it will extend the life of your carpet by removing built-up dirt, dust, and grime that can wear down the fibers.You won’t need to replace your carpets as often, saving you a significant amount of money in the long run.
