Dirty Carpets Can Affect Your Health in Winter. Here’s how…
Professional carpet cleaning helps to remove dust mites, bacteria and other allergens from your environment. Carpet acts like a large filter collecting particulate matter, thereby keeping it out of the air that you breathe. It’s important to clean this filter before it becomes saturated and can no longer absorb these contaminates. When you have your carpets cleaned, your family will breathe less of these contaminates, reducing the risk of colds, allergies and other respiratory problems.
Soiled carpeting also has a greater potential to create the dreaded “traffic areas” in your carpets. This discoloring is caused by dirt and soil that penetrates the carpet to the base of the fiber. The soil acts as an abrasive to scratch up the fibers, and a scratched fiber will not reflect light to your eyes as much as a new fiber will. If left too long this will cause the more heavily trafficked areas to appear dark or dingy compared to the surrounding areas even after a thorough professional cleaning. This is a result of premature wear to the fiber, not soil or oils in the carpets and can be prevented when carpeting is properly maintained.
