How Regular Carpet Cleaning Improves the Air Quality Inside a Home

There are many benefits to getting your carpets cleaned professionally. Not only are you left with a renewed, fresh looking carpet, but you also eliminate the allergens that can get trapped in the fibers of the rug.

Clean Flooring in a Home

Think about a hard floor. You can sweep it each week, but removing the dust is just not enough to feel like your floor is clean. You add soap and give it a good mop regularly to thoroughly get up the dirt and grime. The same is even more critical with the carpet. All the dirt falls to the bottom and doesn’t get picked up by a regular vacuum. Here are some allergens that may be trapped inside your carpet:

  • Dog and cat dander
  • Dust mites
  • Bacteria
  • Mold

When you vacuum, often those allergens are blown up and circulated into the air. By choosing to clean your carpet professionally, the soap and cleaning substances will take care of the trapped allergens, and the commercial-grade vacuum will suck it all up and dry the carpet.

Good Air Quality Inside

In order to maintain clean air inside your home, there are a few other things you can do:

  1. Open Your Windows: Every home needs a breeze running through it to circulate fresh, new air from the outside. Be sure you are regularly opening your windows to flow through outside air.
  2. Clean Your Vents: You want to be sure your HVAC system isn’t spreading dust particles throughout your home. When was the last time you got your ducts cleaned? We highly recommend doing this to improve indoor air quality.
  3. Regular Carpet Cleaning: Make a schedule and don’t procrastinate cleaning your carpets every 6-months to a year. Proper professional cleaning of your floors will improve the air quality in your home.
