Benefits of Professional Carpet Cleaning

You may not think about how truly clean your carpets are until perhaps someone spills something and leaves an unsightly stain. Sure, you vacuum religiously and make sure everyone takes their shoes off at the door. You may even periodically steam clean them using rented or store-bought equipment. However, these methods only clean the surface of the carpet. But, is it enough? How clean are your carpets, really? What about dirt and bacteria lurking near the nape? Professional carpeting cleaning is the best way to ensure your rugs are not only fresh, but healthy. Here are all the benefits of professional carpet cleaning.

1. Reduces Indoor Air Pollution

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) dirty carpets absorb, then release a plethora of indoor air pollutants. Toxic airborne gases get trapped in your carpet easily. Professional cleaning in conjunction with high powered vacuuming can effectively remove these issues.

2. Prevents Mold

Mold is a common allergen and may cause problems like asthma and other respiratory conditions. The mold generates airborne spores, which are inhaled, thus causing allergic reactions. Dirty carpets are the perfect breeding for these spores. This is especially true in areas where your carpeting is exposed to high humidity and moisture. Regular professional carpet cleaning removes these allergens and prevents mold and mildew growth.

3. Dust Mite Elimination

Microscopic dust mites are tiny bugs that are a leading cause of allergies. They are close relatives of spiders and ticks. They eat skin cells shed by people and thrive in warm, humid conditions. Additionally, carpeting is the perfect housing for dust mites. Many people with dust mite allergies also experience signs of asthma, such as wheezing and difficulty breathing. When you have your carpets cleaned by a professional, it eliminates dust mites, thus making your home healthier.

4. Extends Life of Carpeting

Just as regular auto maintenance extends the life of your car, so too does professional carpeting extend the life of your rugs. Give your carpet a hot water extraction cleaning at least once a year. However, if you have a family of four or more, consider every six months. Another trick to make your carpet last longer? Periodically rearrange your furniture. This tip also helps the pros clean your all areas of your room.

5. Kids and Pets

Dogs and cats, regardless of whether they strictly live indoors still bring in pollutants from outside. Animals shed their fur, which further contributes to trapping allergens in your home. Now, if you have small children, they probably spend the majority of their time on the floor. Regardless of whether your children have allergies, you certainly want your home to provide the healthiest environment for your family. Professional carpeting cleaning will eliminate pet odors and dander.
