 How Do You Benefit From Cleaner Carpets!

How do you benefit from cleaner carpets? There are big benefits – health, lifestyle,etc-to be had from keeping your carpets clean and maintained good condition!  This is particularly more so in homes with families were the children who prone to allergies. Homeowners and business owners should be aware that a carpet (s) acts as a large filter/sponge by absorbing large quantities of dirt.

The carpet will absorb different dirt over a long period of time and will hold this dirt deep within its fibres. The households everyday activity (walking) will agitate the pile/fibres which loosens the dirt particles up into the air. This dust, dander, and other micro-organisms are only a few of the dirt particles that are dispersed into the air and cause a potential health risk.

Why Parents Must Maintain Clean Carpets?

Parents must be aware that their kids are most at risk from many air-borne dirt micro-organisms within the home. This is probably due to the modern-day fact that kids will spend a lot of time indoors and close to or on the floor. Moreover, this is also due to their immune system not being as mature as an adult’s. They may experience breathing problems, e.g. asthma that can be triggered by poor indoor air quality and is why parents will notice a general health improvement in their children after a deep cleaning of their carpets.

Harmful mould fungus is considered a big threat to some building interiors. Mould spores can be formed and spawned by exposing interior material fibres (carpets, underlay, rugs and upholstery) to moisture. Once wet the process of mould forming can take only a couple of days to form. Furthermore, these fungi can worsen respiratory problems,e.g. asthma.

This is because of the mould spores being released and that when airborne are easily breathed in by household members. There are many, various articles that state that prolonged exposure to mould spores also contribute to behavioural and developmental problems.  Once the formation of mould is identified, and if not dealt with immediately, it can be very difficult to remove from most material fibre types, i.e carpets

The Best Person To Clean Carpets?

The cost of carpet/upholstery cleaning is a major consideration by homeowners and businesses.  Furthermore, it may be attractive to ‘hire’ this type of equipment (‘Rug Doctor’, etc); but it must be stressed that this type of equipment is much less efficient than that available to a professional carpet cleaner. And as a ‘layperson’, without any carpet cleaning training, you could cause damage to the carpet you are cleaning!

An easy example is where you (usually) use too much water and not enough water is then extracted back out of the carpet being cleaned (or upholstery for that matter). Most of the popular DIY machines are, in my experience, notorious for their lack of vacuum!. This can lead to mould spores forming (as explained above). In addition, if too excessive detergent is also used and not fully flushed-out it will lead to the carpet quickly re-soiling- The overuse of carpet cleaning detergent is a common mistake by DIYers.
