Improve Indoor Air Quality with Regular Carpet Cleaning
When you think about air quality, what do you imagine? Perhaps a big city that is choking on smog? Maybe you envision a big factory with plumes of black smoke coming out. Remember, this is also such a thing as “indoor air quality.” Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality within buildings and structures. IAQ is known to affect the health, comfort, and well-being of building occupants. If you’re talking about the indoor air quality of your house, it is you and your family who are affected. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to sick building syndrome, reduced productivity in work environments, and impaired learning in schools. The last thing you want is for your family to get sick from breathing in the air in your own home!
So, the question becomes: how can you ensure the air inside your home is clean and safe? Look down! Yes, look down at your carpets. Carpets acts as a filter that traps bacteria, allergens, and other small bits that originate from both the indoor and outdoor environments. Cleaning is a key component in prolonging the life of the carpet, maintaining its air filtration effectiveness, and contributing to the quality of the indoor air. You don’t do this just one time. Your carpets need to be cleaned over and over again, on a regular basis.
The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) recognizes the benefits of routine cleaning with high performance filtration vacuuming and periodic wet extraction utilizing a low moisture, green-certified process that has been verified by independent laboratory testing. Chances are pretty good that you don’t own and know how to operate this kind of equipment. That is precisely why the IAQA also recognizes the value of using a professional carpet cleaning company trained and certified in these methods to deliver a deeper carpet cleaning and healthier indoor air. Don’t attempt to do it yourself. The health and happiness of your family is at stake here. Bring in the professionals!
Indoor air quality is also a significant health concern because the average home can harbor as much as 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet. That is both shocking and disgusting. As the bacteria lurking in your carpets gets stirred up, it circulates in the air and your family breathes it in. That is…unless you properly clean the carpets.
