We guard our health from risks and challenges everyday. We choose healthier food choices. We drive cars with safety features and play sports with safety equipment. However, within our homes and offices, we are exposed to environmental pollutants that pose a degree of risk. Indoor air pollution is one risk that you can do something about. How? Carpet cleaning.
Scientific evidence shows that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Therefore, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
Humans shed skin scales which in turn feed the dust mites. Carpeting, bedding, and fabric upholstery provide them with a safe place to live. As a result, rooms that are used most in the home such as bedrooms, play rooms and living rooms are ideal breeding grounds for the dust mite.
Carried in through the air, allergens can be found on furniture, floors, and other surfaces around the house. Home carpets provide a place for germs, bacteria and mold to grow. Norovirus, a germ linked to stomach flu, can survive on an unclean carpet for more than one month. While no home can be completely allergen-free, professional carpet cleaning can help reduce the number of allergens.
Mold and dust mites that can inflame your lungs can also give you red eyes or a runny nose if you are already battling allergies. Buildup in your carpet can easily aggravate an allergy attack. And it is more than just annoying; it can lead to disease. Microscopic dust mites, flea eggs, larvae and other organic debris collects with airborne contaminants and soil deep within your carpets.
Itchy skin, rashes, athlete’s foot, and eczema are all dirty carpet dangers that can be triggered or made worse by dust mites in unclean carpet. Even if you maintain a regular cleaning schedule, dust mites are small enough to evade the most diligent home cleaners. Prevention.com recommends running a humidifier and regularly having carpets cleaned to protect sensitive skin.
According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, mold is even more common in basement carpeting. Your carpet could even be a host for salmonella, putting your household, especially children, at risk.
If you wait for your carpets to look dirty, fiber damage can occur due to the embedded soils. Your carpets might look “clean” after a quick vacuum but their overall appearance may suffer and require replacement sooner than expected.
