3 Health Benefits from Huntington Beach Carpet Cleaning
For those of us who live in Southern California and specifically Huntington Beach, carpet cleaning will undoubtedly make your carpet look better and last longer. But perhaps the most important benefit from carpet cleaning is health benefits you, your family and your guests will experience.
This is especially true if anyone living in or visiting your home suffers from breathing conditions such as asthma. Consider these…
3 Ways Carpet Cleaning Yields a Healthier Home
1) Carpet cleaning can prevent mold
Dirty carpets have a higher risk of developing mold when exposed to moisture. This is because water clings to dirt like wet sand on a beach. This is especially true in homes where temperatures are kept cool and windows are rarely opened to allow carpets to air out.
Having your carpet cleaned regularly can prevent mold and mildew growth but it does depend to some extent on the carpet cleaning method used. Steam cleaners and other high-water-volume techniques can leave carpets wetter and can lead to more mold and mildew problems if carpets do not dry properly, That is one reason, low-moisture carpet cleaning methods like the one Heaven’s Best uses, are a better option.
2) Carpet cleaning removes trapped pollutants.
A dirty carpet can retain many types of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, insect body parts, smoke and dust. Toxic airborne gases can also adhere to dust particles and also get trapped in a carpet and then released when vaccuming or walking on the carpet. Professional carpet cleaning removes many of these pollutants.
3) Carpet cleaning removes dust mites.
Did you know many homes have dust mite infestations? And in most cases the homeowners aren’t aware of it? That’s because dust mites are so tiny, they are usually too small to be seen with the naked eye. While dust mites themselves are not allergens, they often leave behind feces and body fragments which do cause breathing problems. Most carpet cleaning methods kill and remove dust mites, freeing your home of these alergens.
These are the ways carpet cleaning can give you a healthier home. As you might imagine, mold, pollutants and dust mites are not limited to carpet and can affect other fabrics like upholstery and area rugs. So, if you or anyone in your household has issues with asthma or allergies, doing upholstery cleaning and area rug cleaning along with your carpet cleaning will provide the cleanest environment for your family.
