How carpet and flooring can benefit you and your family’s well being.
Carpet as an Air Filter
For anyone who has allergies in their family they can understand how carpet cleaning is a factor to good quality health. As long as carpets are kept clean they can improve the quality of the indoor air by working as another filter adding to the other filter in your central cooling and heating system. Carpets are able to trap particles that are circulating in the air because of the pull of gravity towards the floor of the rooms. But once they are saturated, until they are cleaned, any benefit becomes greatly reduced. You will need to have the carpet cleaning done by professionals in order to ensure that the accumulated pollen, soils as well as other contaminants are completely removed.
Clean the Carpet Air Filter
Regularly scheduled professional carpet cleaning is done for more reasons than just appearance – it is also about health. Individuals coming in and out of your house; pets living there; eating, sleeping and breathing there all add to the contaminants in the carpet. This means that the air control is significant. A carpet that is clean traps the circulating particles easily. This improves the air quality indoors by removing all these contaminants from the air. Then the carpet as well as the filter in the unit becomes saturated and one needs to be changed and the carpet needs to be cleaned. By changing the filter in the unit every month you ensure that the carpets do not have to be cleaned more than once or twice a year.
House dust mites are also found in homes. Carpets help control these dust mites that is another reason that you need to have professional carpet cleaning performed at least once or twice a year on your carpet.
The problem with dust mites is that most individuals are allergic to them, especially young children. Symptoms linked to dust mite allergies include itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, nasal congestion, stuffy ears, runny nose, eczema and in some cases asthma. But, dust can also contain other allergens such as dog and cat dander, cockroach droppings, cigarette ash as well as mold pollen and spores. So you can see why the professionals need to do carpet cleaning at least once or twice a year – perhaps more if the allergies in your family are bad.
Here are some of the weekly actions that you need to do to improve indoor air and minimize the breathing of allergens. Change the heating and cooling system filters monthly. Install outside and inside entry mats to reduce the amount of dirt entering the house. Vacuum the carpets regularly and finally have professionals regularly do carpet cleaning so as to renew the carpets which also serve as a medium of filtering.
All of this information should help you to understand the health benefits of carpet cleaning on a regular basis. Call Carpet Cleaning Hobsonville for further information on keeping your carpet cleaned for better health.
