Advantages of Professional Carpet Cleaning Throughout SW Florida.

Why is it most of us will wear a garment once and then place it in the laundry basket for cleaning yet we’ll wait years to clean our carpeting?

Regular vacuuming will take care of the loose dirt and sand but is ineffective at mold spores, dust mites, the oils tracked in from our driveways and parking lots, and don’t get me started on bird poop, etc. we track across our carpeting on more than one occasion weekly.

Many homeowners prefer carpet or area rugs in living rooms and children’s playrooms, but carpeting is more of a challenge to keep clean than other floor surfaces. Beyond vacuuming regularly, you will also benefit from professional carpet cleaning at least once a year.

According to a report by the American Lung Association, dust accumulation in carpet and rugs can adversely affect members of your household who suffer from allergies or other conditions that can affect their breathing, such as snoring or asthma. If you’re not fully convinced of the benefits of carpet cleaning, consider the following top three ways the process leads to a healthier home:

1. Carpet cleaning eliminates trapped pollutants

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a dirty carpet can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution, and everyday dirt and dust. Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and also get trapped within the carpet. It’s also interesting to note that carpeting is the largest filter in your home and provides health benefits because of its ability to trap allergens and dust that otherwise would float around freely.

These toxic gases can be released through everyday activities such as vacuuming and walking across the carpet, which can cause them to contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet cleaning services kill these bacteria through special shampooing formulas and can remove deeply trapped pollutants with high-powered vacuums.

2. Carpet cleaning can clear out dust mite infestations

Many homes have dust mite infestations, yet most homeowners aren’t aware of the infestation because the creatures are microscopic. Dust mites themselves aren’t allergens, but they often leave behind feces and body fragments which are.

Because of the microscopic size of these particles, they can easily be inhaled when the area is disturbed, which can exacerbate allergies. Many professional carpet cleaning companies utilize a technique known as steam cleaning when performing carpet maintenance work, which exposes your carpet to high temperatures that dust mites can’t survive.

3. Carpet cleaning can help prevent mold growth

Especially in areas with high humidity levels, dirty carpets are at a high risk of developing mold growth when exposed to moisture. In precipitous weather, moisture frequently gets tracked into the home and can sink deep in the carpet fibers if not dried and vacuumed immediately.

Having your carpet cleaned regularly can prevent mold and mildew growth, because professional carpet cleaners have high-powered drying tools that annihilate moisture.
