Health Benefits Of Professional Carpet Cleaning

From removing old, set-in stains to eliminating nasty pet odors, there are several obvious benefits of having your carpets professionally cleaned. However, what you might not realize is the negative impact your dirty carpets are having on your health and the health of your family, especially family members who suffer from allergies and asthma. Here are a few of the health benefits of having your carpets professionally cleaned.

Prevent Mold and Mildew Growth

In order for mold to grow, it requires the right environment. This includes organic matter, such as dirt, air, and moisture. Unfortunately, if your carpets are dirty and they become damp, such as after a flood, a leaky pipe, or even wet shoes walking across the carpets, your carpet can quickly become infested with mold.

Bleach is a typical treatment for mold but unfortunately, bleach will ruin your carpet. Instead, hire a professional to regularly clean your carpets. The professional will have the skills and tools necessary to eliminate any mold spores found in your carpet. Scheduling regular cleanings can help ensure that mold is stopped before it has a chance to spread.

Eliminate Allergens and Pollutants 

Nothing beats a soft, fluffy carpet under your feet on a cold winter morning. Unfortunately, while carpets are comfortable, allergens, pollutants, and dust mites can become trapped in the fibers. For example, if you have pets, dander can collect on the carpet and can be tricky to completely eliminate with your vacuum cleaner.

Dust mites are also found in every household and if you do not eliminate dust mites on a regular basis, the mites can trigger an allergic reaction in many people. Regular carpet cleaning by a professional can help eliminate these allergens and keep them in check.

Protect Your Kids Against Illness

Finally, if you have small children, you know how much time your kids will spend on the floor playing. This is especially true if you have a toddler or an infant. Unfortunately, while your child is playing with their toys on the carpet, they are also being exposed to the bacteria and other germs that become trapped in the carpet fibers.

A regular professional deep carpet cleaning can help eliminate these nasty germs, which will help prevent your child from getting sick while they are playing in their own home.

From eliminating mold and mildew before it has time to spread to ensuring your carpet is a safe place for your children to play, there are several health benefits to hiring a carpet cleaning professional.
