Many home owners will invest in having their carpets professionally cleaned regularly. Most do it to help maintain a clean appearance and to extend the life of their carpets. However there is much more to having your carpets cleaned than just that. Keeping your carpet cleaned professionally also has many health benefits. Steam Masters will share some of these benefits so you understand why it is important to have your carpets cleaned properly.
Pollutants Found in Carpet
The Environmental Protection Agency reported that there are many indoor air pollutants trapped inside carpet fibers. These pollutants include pet dander, particle pollutants, cockroach allergens, lead, and of course the every day dust and dirt. But if that isn’t bad enough, many of the pollutants will have toxic airborne gases that adhere to them, which of course, get trapped in your carpets. Through daily activities such as walking or even vacuuming your carpets can cause these toxic gases to release into the air which through your HVAC system can then pass throughout your home. The benefit of having a professional carpet cleaner like Steam Masters is that we come with powerful truck mounted vacuum and carpet cleaners and cleaning solutions that can penetrate deep into your carpet killing and remove most of these pollutants that are inside your carpets.
Carpet Beetles, Bugs & Pests in Carpets
There are dust mites infested in your carpets. They are in very home. Most don’t realize that they are infested with these microscopic pests. They themselves aren’t the problem. In fact we co-exist with these pests because they eat the hair and skin that people shed every day. They play their part and in most cases they don’t bother people or their homes. However, as these microscopic pests feed, they leave behind feces and their own shed skin, which can lead to air borne pollutants that can cause allergy. For those with allergies you will find having your carpets professionally cleaned will remove these allergen caused by dust mites and even kill a portion of the dust mites.
Mold & Mildew Growth in Carpet
For carpeted areas in or near high humidity has a high potential of growing molds and mildews inside the carpet fibers and under the carpet as well. Especially if the carpet was exposed to water and heat. If a bathroom, kitchen or laundry room flooded or had a leak and pooled onto your carpets, expect mold to grow. When you have your carpet cleaned, their steam machines will also dry the carpets with high heat. They will remove all the moisture out of the carpets and prevent any mold or mildew growth.
Dog Urine Stains on Carpet
Pet urine contains a high amount of ammonia which could lead to many health problems. Those exposed to ammonia will feel a burning feeling in their lungs, as well as headaches, light headedness and can even faint. For those with asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems will suffer from exposure to pet urine. Some of the worse cases in constant exposure to ammonia can lead to blindness, and skin irritations and diseases. That is why home owners with pets that seem to make constant messes must have their carpets cleaned often. Again, professional carpet cleaners will have powerful machines that penetrate deep into the carpet and extract the urine out properly.
