Aug 11, 2016

When considering your family, safety is probably your top priority. You take all of the obvious precautions to keep your loved ones safe at home, because you care about them and their safety above all else. Perhaps you have a security system in your home, working fire alarms, locks on the doors, etc. But there may be hidden dangers you aren’t aware of, such as mold, bacteria, infestations. One thing most homeowners overlook is the cleanliness of their carpets, which can carry dirt and other harmful things. Let’s take a quick look at some of the ways your home’s carpet could be affecting you and your family’s health.

Build up of Bacteria and Allergens

Carpets can be a great addition to any home: they offer comfort and insulation, but if not properly cared for, they can pose a threat to you and your family. Over time, carpets can collect dirt, bacteria and allergens that need to be removed on a regular basis by deep cleaning. If left uncleaned these bacteria and allergens can multiply and cause health issues for you and/or your family.

Air Quality

Dirty carpets can diminish the air quality in your home by trapping dirt and dust that are later released into the air you are breathing. As you walk on your carpets, you stir up any dirt, bacteria and allergens trapped inside, making them airborne and contaminating the air you breathe. For those sensitive to allergens or diminished air quality, such as those with asthma, this can become a dangerous problem.

Bedbugs and Dust Mites

Another unwelcome visitor to unclean carpets can be bedbugs or dust mites. If carpets are left unclean, the dirt and bacteria create a perfect environment for bedbugs and/or dust mites to thrive. A deep carpet cleaning on a regular basis can remove any pests that have taken up residence in your carpets, while discouraging any new visitors by removing the dirt and bacteria they thrive on.

Other Benefits of Carpet Cleaning and What You Can Do

In addition to the health and safety benefits of regular carpet cleaning, proper care can also extend the lifespan of your carpet. Regular maintenance can help your carpet last longer, look brighter/cleaner, and can even maintain the carpet’s warranty if it has one. So what can you do to protect your family and keep your carpets in peak condition? A deep carpet cleaning using the extraction method will remove these dangers hiding in your carpets and leave you with bright, beautiful carpet. Simply shampooing will not remove all of these dangers, and can often lead to quicker dirt build up. A deep steam clean will use heat and moisture to extract any dirt, bacteria and pests that may have accumulated over the months. Deep cleanings like this should be done on a regular basis, as your carpets continue to see repeated use.

"WOW, WOW, WOW. I don't know what else to say. With two dogs and a 2 year old running around the house, our carpets and furniture need cleaning on a regular basis. It's nice to know that all I need to do is pick up the phone and I have no more worries. In this day and age, it is a very pleasant surprise to come across a company who will do what they say they will do when they say they will do it and with very little supervision.
