Keeping your carpet clean is a good way to keep your family healthy.
The truth is carpets and rugs can look clean to the naked eye but still clinging to dirt, dander, bacteria, and other irritants. When these irritants make it into the air you breathe they can cause serious health issues for you and your family.
Accumulated irritants can cause health problems such as respiratory issues and skin problems. It’s important that your carpets are deep cleaned professionally regularly to slow down the accumulation of irritants in your carpets.
Below are some tips to keep your carpet from making your family sick:
Use a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuum.
The National Center for Healthy Housing recommends vacuuming your carpet weekly. A HEPA vacuum has filters that help reduce dust and pet dander for those in your family that are prone to allergies. Our carpet cleaning technicians offer green cleaning. Green cleaning may be a good alternative if you or your family is highly sensitive to harsh cleaning chemicals. Green cleaning techniques and products avoid the use of products which contain toxic chemicals, some of which emit harsh organic compounds causing respiratory, dermatological and other conditions.
Take notice of unusual smells in the home.
A musty, unpleasant odor around your house could be a sign of mold. Mold can live in walls, basements, insulation, and under carpets. Indoor mold has the potential to create health problems. If you suspect mold issues, take action immediately to have it checked by a mold expert. Contact Golden Glove, if you have had recent water damage in your home. We offer complete restoration services for your home.
Replace heavily soiled or worn carpet in the home.
Irritants build up on carpets through the years and replacing them with new, low-pile carpet is a good option for many homeowners. Get your home ready for spring with our Spring Special: a free room (up to 150 square feet) of carpet protectant (normally $32.00 value).
