How often do you get your carpets cleaned? Odds are it’s probably not enough. Carpets need to be maintained on a regular basis to keep them looking good. They also need to be maintained to keep your home healthy.
At Dr. Chem-Dry Carpet & Tile Cleaning, we pride ourselves on our ability to turn any carpet into a good-as-new, pristine flooring dream. If you haven’t had a professional carpet cleaning done in awhile, don’t delay: Give us a call today! Here are some of the benefits that come with getting your carpet cleaned on a regular basis.
It Prevents Mold Growth
Dirty carpets can develop mold when they’re exposed to moisture. They are especially at risk in areas with high humidity. Moisture can get tracked into the home, sinking deep into the carpet fiber if it’s not dried and vacuumed immediately. Professional carpet cleaning can root out and eliminate the moisture in your carpets, preventing the growth of mold and mildew.
Aside from the fact that mold and mildew can smell and are visually unpleasant, you don’t want either in your home because they can pose a major health risk. Mold can be very harmful to your health and the health of your pets and loved ones.
It Improves Air Quality
Vacuuming and cleaning your carpets removes contaminants that cling to your carpet’s surface. When those contaminants get deeper into your carpet, they become harder to remove. Often times these contaminants are allergens like dust or pet dander. They make it harder to breathe in your home, especially if you have asthma or allergies.
Toxic airborne gases can also get trapped in your carpets. These gases will usually cling to dirt, lead, and other particles to work their way into the carpet fibers. These gases can get released and plague your health through simple everyday activities like walking across the carpet. Each step on a dirty carpet can pollute and contaminate your air with all manner of unhealthy and unpleasant substances.
It Eliminates Dust Mites
Dust mites are one of the most powerful and pervasive allergens that can be found in carpets. Dust mites are microscopic organisms that leave a tremendous amount of waste behind. It’s their body fragments and feces that are allergens, not the mites themselves. This waste can kick up into the air when your carpet is stepped on or disturbed, making it easy for you to inhale them and inflame your allergies. But don’t despair: You can get rid of dust mites with a professional carpet cleaning.
It Eases Muscle Strain
A major benefit of getting a professional carpet cleaning is that it takes a lot of strain off of you. Cleaning a carpet involves a fair bit of heavy lifting: It has to be clear of furniture in order to get every square inch of carpet cleaned properly. Doing this on your own can be exhausting and possibly painful if you don’t know how to handle heavy objects properly. Getting a carpet cleaning means that you’ll have professionals on hand who can safely and efficiently handle that heavy lifting so you don’t have to throw your back out doing it.
