Most people think of the indoors as a place that is safe from allergens, bacteria and the other dangers that merely float freely outside. This is one reason as to why Americans spend an estimated 90 percent of the time indoors.
What they fail to realize, however, is that contaminants tend to travel indoors. They will situate themselves in various areas, but they tend to reside deep in the carpeting that makes your home or business a welcome and comfortable place.
Let’s examine how carpet cleaning can help alleviate the symptoms of respiratory conditions like allergies and asthma.
The Uses of Topical Carpet Cleaning
Regular cleaning of your carpet will help to remove many of the contaminants that may find their way into your home or business. This will help prevent these particles from traveling deeper into the carpet, where they can become a veritable nuisance.
The best way to reduce topical contaminants is by utilizing some sort of cleaning that utilizes suction. Vacuuming is one example, but it is worth noting that larger vacuums will tend to perform better.
If you are worried that cleaning will stir contaminants and force them into the air, then a type of cleaning that hydrates contaminant particles before removing them will perform the best. Steam cleaning is one example of a cleaning method that we use at ProGreen Carpet to reduce free contaminants after cleaning.
Going Deeper Into Your Carpet
While topical cleanings will dramatically reduce the allergens and dirt particles that reside in your carpet, it will not eliminate all of these unwanted residents. They may still reproduce deep within your carpet, which in turn allows them to wreak havoc on any people inside of your property.
Deep cleaning, which we offer as one of our services at ProGreen Carpet, will remove these potential problems. This type of cleaning will also help to make your carpet look cleaner, extend the life of your carpet, and make your building’s interior more friendly to people.
You should generally opt for a deep cleaning every 6 to 12 months in a residential situation, and sooner within a commercial setting.
Keeping Your Carpet Appealing
Cleaning is the first step to ensuring that your carpet stays beautiful and safe for your building. It extends the longevity of your carpet, which means that professional carpet cleanings are something that you should opt for on a regular basis.
