Health Benefits Of Carpet Cleaning

Posted by Hughes Dry on May 1st, 2018

 The air quality has degraded substantially over the years. If you’re thinking this fact holds true only when you step outdoors, you’re mistaken! According to a report by the USEPA (the United States Environmental Protection Agency), carpets contribute to major indoor pollutants that may become airborne during indoor activities, posing a serious threat to your family’s health.

Carpets are made of synthetic fibers and can be best described as giant sponges that attract dust, mites, bacteria, and allergens. These deep entrenched harmful particles are extremely difficult to get rid of, even with regular vacuuming since they tend to percolate deep within the material. This calls for a need to invest in regular cleaning treatments by experts. This practice is essential in order to eliminate the embedded harmful contaminants and ensure that your carpets are germ and dust free.

Here are a number of health benefits that a professional carpet cleaning Atlantabased service, like ours, can provide you with-

  • Improvement in the Indoor Air quality: Contrary to what many might believe, indoor air pollutant levels are generally 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor pollutant levels.

The EPA ranks indoor air quality among the top five environmental risks to public health. Professional carpet cleaners can exponentially alleviate the effects of dirty, disease-laden carpets that affect the indoor air quality, allowing you to breathe fresh, uncontaminated air.

  • Dust and Allergens prevention: Carpets act as a repository for pollutants and biological contaminants. Dust mites are also known as the ‘silent killers’. Many toxic airborne gases tend to get trapped in the soils of carpets and release when the fibers undergo any tension. If inhaled, they can be highly toxic to health. Professional cleaners can help you defeat these pollutants by exposing them to a high temperature in which they cannot survive.

  • Mold prevention: The carpeting area is at a high risk of becoming a breeding ground for mold that produces allergens and irritants and, in some cases, toxic substances like mycotoxins. They mostly thrive in areas where the humidity is high and exposed to moisture, like the carpeting that is located in the basements where the environment is damp. The most effective way to eliminate mold growth is through a cleaning service that purges the carpets of moisture, thereby also removing odours from the fibres.

  • Safe for toddlers and children: Children, especially toddlers spend a majority of their time playing on the floor on the carpets. These floor mats are unfortunately the perfect haven for bacteria growth. Exposure to the suspended particulates proves harmful to children as their immune systems are not strong and fully developed. Whether it’s home, kindergarten or preschool, it is essential to keep the carpets clean and hygienic on a regular basis to ensure small children have a healthy surrounding.

Carpets, whether used on an everyday basis or for the purpose of embellishment, presuppose utmost care and cleaning. Fret not! This can be easily tackled by a professional upholstery cleaning Atlanta and carpet cleaning Atlanta based service, like ours, helping you stay healthy and make the entire cleaning process hassle-free.
