Regular carpet cleaning not only means cleaner carpets, but can also contribute to a healthier home environment. Truck-mounted carpet cleaning can improve the appearance of your home and massively extend the life of your carpet, but perhaps the most valuable benefit from the process is improving yours and your family’s health.
According to the American Lung Association, if members of your household suffer from conditions that can affect their breathing, such as snoring or asthma, it’s especially crucial that you vacuum your carpets at least three times a week. Beyond vacuuming regularly, you may also benefit from having your carpets professionally steam cleaned at least once a year. If you’re not fully convinced of the benefits of professional carpet cleaning, consider the following top three ways the process leads to a healthier home.
1. Carpet cleaning eliminates trapped pollutant
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.
These toxic gases can be released through everyday activities such as vacuuming and walking on the carpet, which can cause them to contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet cleaning services from XL Cleaners kills these bacteria using special cleaning solutions and removes the deeply trapped pollutants with high-powered truck-mounted carpet cleaning machines.
2. Carpet steam 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 faeces 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 utilise 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 mould and growth
Especially in areas with high humidity levels, dirty carpets are at a high risk of developing mould growth when exposed to moisture. In precipitous weather, moisture frequently gets tracked into the home and can sink deep in the carpets fibres if not dried and vacuumed immediately.
Having your carpet cleaned regularly can prevent mould and mildew growth. XL Cleaners have high-powered drying tools that speed drying up to help annihilate moisture. By eliminating moisture, you can prevent mould growth that can be harmful to your health if ignored for too long.
