Carpeting can make a home quiet and comfortable, but it also tends to trap pollutants that can affect the indoor air quality (IAQ) and cause mild to severe health problems. Fortunately, regular carpet cleaning can remove these issues. Here, Mr. K's Carpet Service in Goshen, NY, explains how dirty carpets negatively impact your health, as well as how cleaning can help.
How Dirty Carpeting Affects Your IAQ
Every day, common pollutants like pet dander, pollen, and dust get caught in the fibers of your carpet. From there, they can exacerbate allergies, causing congestion, coughing, and headaches. Dust mites in particular are tiny, microscopic insects whose feces and decaying bodies can cause severe discomfort if they are inhaled. Mold too, can cause severe respiratory conditions, and carpeting that is moist or in an area that is humid is the perfect breeding ground for it.
How Carpet Cleaning Can Improve Your IAQ
Frequent vacuuming can improve your indoor air quality, but it’s not enough. A thorough professional carpet cleaning every six to 12 months can completely remove these allergens and make your home a more comfortable living space for everyone.
During carpet cleaning, all pollen, pet dander, dust, insects, dirt, and crumbs are carefully scrubbed out of your carpet and sucked away. The carpet is then thoroughly rinsed, and all excess cleaner and water are vacuumed up. Then, your carpet is completely dried with fans to prevent mold and mildew from growing.
