Carpet Cleaning Is Good For Your Health Too!


Do you constantly have itchy eyes, allergy problems, breathing issues, or a poor night’s sleep?

The culprit to your troubles could be right beneath your feet.

Carpeting, be it wall-to-wall or area rugs, are the largest filter in our home, and by design, will trap and hide allergens until vacuumed or professionally steam cleaned.  Carpeting harbors dirty secrets beneath its fluffy exterior, and Tru-Clean Surface Care knows how to get them out.

Do you live in Lee, Charlotte, or Collier County, Florida? Find out how a thorough carpet cleaning from Tru-Clean Surface Care will improve your indoor air quality, not to mention the look and feel of your home.


Imagine a one-pound pile of dirt, dust mites, pollen, and other contaminants. Now, imagine it’s all squeezed into one square foot of carpet. Researchers have found that carpets are, indeed, capable of such feats.

We walk on them, cough over them, spill food on them and pull out our hair when our pets use them for the bathroom.  A thorough carpet cleaning once every 12-18 months can improve indoor air quality and help make our home inviting.

If you were able to magnify your carpeting and look to its foundation, here are a few things you’d find.

  • Food
  • Skin flakes
  • Campylobacter
  • Salmonella
  • Shigella
  • Listeria
  • For those who have a pet as a member of the family – pet dander and perhaps urine salts
  • Dust mites and pollen
  • And if you’re a smoker, tar, and nicotine

The good news is that Tru-Clean Surface Care’s certified carpet cleaning professionals have the tools and allergen-free cleaning solutions to remove even the toughest soils, contaminants, and bacteria.

Moisture And Mold

One spill might lead to leftover moisture in your carpet, especially if it sinks to the padding or sub-floor. From that moisture, mold grows and attracts other allergens.

You then breathe all these things in.

Mold is problematic because it drastically impacts air quality and health. Mold can lead to respiratory issues, agitated eyes, sniffles, and flu-like symptoms.

Regular vacuum cleaning doesn’t eliminate moisture.

Fresh Smells

Nothing shouts “unclean” like a foul-smelling house. And area rugs and carpeting hold odor like no other material.

If you want a clean, fresh-scented house, start with your carpets. By minimizing the soil and other contaminants and allergens, your indoor air quality improves and your carpeting looks great..

If you’re tired of feeling exhausted and want to breathe better, get a good night’s sleep, get rid of odor, that stuffy nose, or watery eyes, give Tru-Clean Surface Care a call.
