Carpeting is an excellent choice for a home when you’re looking for comfort and appearance. But it’s not a set-it-and-forget-it feature. Like most things in your home, carpeting should be cleaned regularly. Not only will frequent cleanings prolong the lifespan of your carpeting and keep your home looking inviting, they benefit your health.
Here are a few of the health benefits of professional carpet cleaning.
Your carpet is like a grandmother’s purse, collecting all sorts of things. But, unlike nana’s purse, which is filled with fun things like hard candies, restaurant sugar packets, tissues, and old lipsticks, your carpet collects dirt, dust, pet dander, mold spores, and insect particles. These pollutants, released into the air in your home through daily activity, can cause and exacerbate respiratory and allergy problems.
Prevents mold and mildew.
Mold and mildew can grow on carpet and go undetected for years. You might not even know it’s growing underfoot unless you pull up the flooring. Mold growth can lead to ailments such as chronic allergies, bronchitis, and asthma.
Prevents an infestation of dust mites.
Dust mites are tiny bugs that thrive on the dust and dander that accumulate on household items like furniture, bed linens, and carpets. While they might be visible only through a microscope, they can cause enormous health problems. Your carpet can house as many as 2,000 dust mites. Each of those mites may leave as many as 20 droppings a day, which you unknowingly kick into the air. 2,000 x 20 x the last time you had your carpet cleaned. We’ll let you do the math.
Keeping your carpets clean benefits the look of your home and, most importantly, the health of you and your family. Contact Rugsies today to schedule an appointment at email@example.com or call us at (305)867-3279.
