Top 4 Health Reasons to Have Your Carpets Cleaned Regularly

We rarely forget how important it is to keep our homes clean. We scour countertops, wash thoroughly, and scrub diligently. Yet we may forget how important it is to have our carpets cleaned regularly.

Here are five reasons to have your carpet cleaned often and professionally, to help you remember!

  1. Dust Mites / Creepy-Crawlies:  Carpet is notorious for harboring pesky creepers like dust mites. Dust mites feed on skin cells that we all shed naturally. Dust mites do not feed directly on humans, and are not known to carry disease, which makes them less frightening than some other bugs. However, they are known to aggravate allergies, which is no fun for anyone. A thorough professional carpet cleaning at least twice per year helps to keep dust mites down, and removes all those shed skin cells and creepy crawlies, too!
  2. Mold / Mildew – We might think that mold and mildew are limited to bathrooms and under the kitchen sink in most households, especially in drier climates. But the fact is, spills, pet accidents, rainy or snowy days, and kids can all contribute to soggy spots in carpet. Even if we blot diligently, moisture can stay deep in carpet and padding, which may lead to mold growth. Not only is it smelly, it can also trigger allergies. Professional, thorough carpet cleaning can help to eradicate mold and mildew.
  3. Bacteria – Dust, pet dander, and the everyday stuff that we track in on our shoes can harbor bacteria. Having your carpets cleaned regularly will cut down on bacteria, which will help you and your family stay healthy.
  4. Indoor Air Health – Pollen, dander, dust and other allergens can build up in your carpet over time, even when you vacuum regularly. Vacuuming alone simply doesn’t clean carpet thoroughly enough. Periodic professional carpet cleaning removes build-up that your vacuum may have missed, and helps to ensure that the air in your home is allergen-free.

Keeping your carpets clean through regular professional carpet cleaning will help keep you, your family, and your carpet healthy!
