There are many benefits to having clean carpet. These include a great looking home, a positive first impression for guests and an overall fresh appearance. While carpet can be difficult to keep clean, there are some motivating factors to keep it as clean as possible. Keeping your carpet clean offers many health benefits that you may not have been aware of. Your carpet can act as a magnet towards dust, dirt, grime, allergens, insects and other harmful materials that can affect the air within your home. When these materials and insects are left alone, they can quickly multiply, causing even a bigger problem for you and your family.
Killing Mold & Fungus on Carpet
When you implement a regular carpet cleaning program in your home and a professional carpet cleaning twice a year, you can ensure that your carpet remains clean and healthy. When most home owners hear the words mold and fungus, thoughts of the bathroom tub, shower or even the kitchen sink may enter into their minds. Very rarely does one immediately associate carpet with mold and fungus. The area of carpet that is at greatest risk for mold and fungus is the carpet sitting right outside the kitchen area, and the bathroom area as well. The wettest rooms in the home can be invaded by mold and fungus. Mold spores will trigger allergy and asthma attacks for those that suffer from respiratory issues. Mold is also dangerous to those who do not suffer from any respiratory illnesses, as it can also trigger headaches, eye irritation, nose irritation and discomfort in the throat. If mold is allowed to linger in your carpet, it will eventually spread throughout the rest of your home, becoming an even larger problem to deal with.
Dirty Carpet Causes Hayfever
Carpet holds many materials that can trigger hay fever as well; these include dust mites, cockroaches, mold spores and animal dander. If you have a pet, then it is most important that you vacuum every day to eliminate the hair and other materials they leave behind.
Mats, Area Rugs & Runners in Entry Ways & High Traffic Areas
One smart and popular option many home owners invest in is mats, area rugs and runners. The great benefit that comes with these options is that they reduce the amount of dirt, dust and toxins that are tracked into your home. Put a mat on both the inside and the outside of your main entry doorway. This will greatly reduce the amount of toxins that are let into your home.
