Improve Indoor Air Quality with Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Why Carpet Cleaning is More Important Than You Think

Did you know the cleanliness of your carpet actually affects the quality of the air in your home? It's true. A dirty carpet throws allergens and other irritants into the air every time it is stepped on or vacuumed. 

If you don’t have your carpets professionally cleaned, you may be inadvertently breathing in contaminants every day. Your carpets can hide a lot of harmful substances that can cause serious illnesses. Vacuuming can even exacerbate the problem by releasing these substances in the air as you go over your carpets.

Dust, Dirt & Allergens in the Air

Harmful substances can be launched into the air from your carpets in a number of ways, fouling your indoor air.

What are the possible allergens and contaminants that you may be ingesting because of this? Here are some of them:

  • Dust mites – Found deep in the fibers of your carpet, these pests are often released into the air when disturbed via footsteps or vacuuming. These can cause breathing problems as well as allergic reactions.
  • Mold spores – When carpets are cleaned with liquid cleaners, included soap and water, molds can grow underneath if the carpet is not properly dried. Spores from these molds can be released into the air and affect the indoor air quality of your home, triggering respiratory issues, allergic reactions, and other problems.
  • Bacteria – Harmful bacteria like E.coli, Staphylococcus, and Salmonella can live in your carpets and be released into the air when your carpets are not cleaned the right way. This can cause an outbreak of illnesses in your home.
