What’s Hiding in Your Carpet?
Did you know that over 10,000 types of airborne pollutants could be lurking beneath the surface of your carpet? It’s no secret that carpet fibers lock pollutants and other allergens deep within the interior of the material, making it easy for them to contaminate the indoor air you breath throughout the day. Some of the biggest sources of carpet pollutants are: pollen, pet dandruff, dirt, mold & mildew spores, dust, bacteria, and dust mites.
University researchers estimate that millions of microscopic dust mites could be living in the carpets of your home, depending on the frequency of cleaning and vacuuming. Dust mites themselves generally pose little to no health risk, but the harmful waste they disseminate could be making you feel sick. You can substantially reduce their health impact with timely and professional carpet cleaning.
