How Carpets Influence The Quality Of The Air You Breathe:
Did you know that having your carpet cleaned can increase the quality of the air you and your family breathe? Carpets act somewhat like air filters and trap particles that are later released in the air. A carpet in need of cleaning can release a significant quantity of allergens in the air.
Dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander and other particles will become trapped in carpet fibers very quickly. Vacuuming a carpet at least once a week reduces the quantity of particles rapped in the carpet fibers but vacuuming only removes the particles that are still on the surface of the carpet. The particles already trapped in carpet fibers have to be extracted by a professional.
Particles trapped in the carpet are released as the carpet undergoes wear and tear. Carpet fibers break because of traffic and dust, dirt, pollen and other allergens are released into the air.
The air quality of your home should be a serious concern. Young children are more likely to develop conditions such as asthma or respiratory allergies if the air they breathe is not clean. If you suffer from asthma or allergies, the particles released by your carpet could trigger some attacks.
You should have a professional clean your carpet regularly. This is the best way to get rid your home of allergens and other particles trapped in your carpet. You can also have a professional apply a carpet seal to protect your carpet from spills and prevent most particles from becoming trapped into the carpet fibers.
