Q: Why should I clean my carpet?
A: Volatile organic compounds, biocontaminants and combustion products, as well as dust mites, chemicals, pollutants, pesticides, allergens, bacteria, and a host of other unhealthy contaminants will make there way into your carpet throughout its life. Quite simply, your carpet acts like a sink. It collects and filters all of the above mentioned contaminants. This collection and filtering process traps these contaminants within your carpet, which in turns cleans the air you breathe and allows you to live a healthier life. Hard surface floors may allow contaminants to “roam” throughout the indoor environment.
However, like any other filter, your carpet needs to be cleaned on a regular basis, or it will lose its filtering ability. If these contaminants are in your home, they could be contributing to your family’s health and allergy problems.
