Breathe easier with professional carpet cleaning
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, more than 50 million Americans suffer from nasal allergies. If you are one of the 50 million living with allergies, you know all too well about sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes. But, did you know there are some simple ways to help alleviate these symptoms?
The substances that cause these symptoms are called allergens. Carpets act as an air filter and trap allergens such as pet dander, pollen and dust mites. And, while carpet helps take allergens out of the indoor air, over time the carpet becomes full and no longer has the capacity to trap additional allergens.
There are several ways to help reduce and remove allergens from your carpets including vacuuming two to three times a week with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter and removing shoes before entering your house.
But, vacuuming alone is not going to eliminate all the allergens. Vacuuming removes surface dust, but it can’t remove most dust mite allergens. Mites are small enough to pass through the vacuum cleaner bag. And, ultimately dust mites will only die in hot water temperatures of 130 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, which cannot be achieved through vacuuming.
In order to safely and effectively remove all the allergens stuck in your carpet, it is strongly suggested you have your carpets professionally cleaned. Steam cleaning removes not only germs from surfaces it also kills dust mites and other allergens.
The Institute For Inspectors Cleaning & Restoration Certification (IICRC) recommends homeowners have their carpets professionally cleaned one to two times a year. IICRC states, “Clean carpet doesn’t just look good, it promotes indoor air quality, reduces health risks and extends the carpeting’s life as well.”
