Dust accumulation in rugs and carpets can negatively affect members of a household, especially those suffering from conditions such as asthma or snoring. It is no wonder regular carpet cleaning services are highly recommended by doctors from all over the world. For starters, you can rest assured once a thorough carpet cleaning session is over, all pollutants trapped in the carpet fiber will be no more. When you have a carpet in your house, you could be harboring any of these pollutants: dust particles, lead pollution, pet dander and cockroach allergens to mention but a few. Also worth a mention is that some toxic airborne gases also tend to find themselves trapped within carpets and rugs. The worst experience in your household would be to have all these irritants and pollutants in your carpet yet your HVAC unit is blowing air all around the house.
Are you experiencing extremely high energy bills; it could be because of your dirty carpet. Think about this for a moment, when you have a dirty carpet, and the HVAC unit is on, chances are high dust particles will be trapped in the system, meaning the performance of the unit will be compromised. This means each time the unit is on, it is consuming more energy than it should otherwise have consumed were it not for the trapped dirt and particles from your carpet.
The toxic gasses trapped on your carpet get released on a daily basis through activities such as walking and vacuuming and of course this leads to contamination. The good news is you can avoid air contamination by having professional carpet cleaning companies come and do their job of killing the bacteria by use of good quality cleaning detergents and specialized cleaning equipment. Dust mite infestation on your carpets also calls for professional carpet cleaning services. Alas, many people will not even know they have a dust mite infestation because these mites are very tiny and invisible to the naked eye. Note that these dust mites are harmless until they start leaving behind feces and tiny body particles that are equally microscopic and invisible.
Of course, the microscopic nature of these particles means they can easily get inhaled each time they are disturbed. By working with a professional carpet cleaning company, you can have techniques such as steam cleaning done to expose the carpet to high temperatures and kill the dust mites in the process. It is also important to have your carpets cleaned regularly when you want to avoid the growth and multiplication of mold. Show me a dirty carpet, and I will show you the perfect breeding grounds for stubborn mold. Again, only a professional cleaning company will know the right carpet cleaning supplies to use to ensure the carpet does not attract and trap in moisture.
