There are many reasons to get your carpet cleaned from the aesthetic to health. Your carpet is like a net that catches everything and that can lead to asthma problems, colds and flu and more. It’s important to vacuum you carpeting regularly and get a yearly cleaning. Professional carpet cleaning isn’t just about getting out stains and making it look like new. It’s about keeping you and your family healthy. You probably don’t know everything that sinks into your carpet.
Dirt and Grime
This is the most expected item to become trapped into your carpet. People walk all over it in shoes and bare feet, bringing in the dirt, mud and who knows what else from outside. Even with regular vacuuming, dirt can get trapped deep within the fibers. This is reinforced if the carpet ever gets wet because of rain or something being spilled. While no one wants to have dirty carpets, the impact of the dirt can lead to health issues over time.
We love our pets whether they are cats or dogs, but they shed everywhere. The more pets you have, the more hair they lose. If you’ve taken the time to brush them, you have an idea of how much they can shed. Now, imagine that in your carpets. Regular vacuuming can help, but it’s hard to keep up with all that they shed. Pet hair and dander can cause aggravation to allergies, problems with asthma and more. No one is going to get rid of their pet because of dander and hair, so have regular scheduled professional cleanings to get as much out as possible.
Bacteria and Mold
No one wakes up and says, “Man, I wish I felt horrible today.” We go through great links to keep ourselves healthy and reduce our exposure to nasties like viruses and bacteria, but you carpet could be teeming with them. It’s more than just dirt people can bring in. If someone sneezes, nasties fall into the carpet. Skin and hair are constantly shedding from people. Your carpet could be an ecosystem filled with bacteria and viruses that can make you sick.
Mold is another problem many people don’t think about with carpets. If you use a carpet cleaner that leaves large amounts of water in the carpet or have an area that is regularly moist, then it could begin to grow mold. The mold may not even grow on the top of the carpet and instead grow underneath or in the foam padding. Mold has long been known to cause serious health problems.
