Health Benefits of Clean Carpets And Upholstery

Health Benefits of Clean Carpets and Upholstery

According to the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, one in every three individuals residing in the United States suffers from a respiratory problem be it allergies, asthma, bronchitis or sinusitis, among others. The good news is, Flat Rate Carpet can help!

Spring is more often than not the most difficult season for allergy sufferers and many parts of the country are already seeing high levels of tree pollen, the most prevalent springtime pollen. This means more sneezing for people with allergic rhinitis, and more wheezing for people with asthma.

Did you know?

Carpet and upholstery cleaning can actually have a positive impact on allergies if proper cleaning is performed. Dust mites, mold, mildew, fungi, and allergens are easily and effectively removed with proper carpet cleaning. Prior to removal these allergens are trapped out of the breathing zone within the carpet pile fibers. Other flooring surfaces allow allergens to become airborne with each footstep.

With extra attention given to carpet and upholstery during springtime, many allergy symptoms can be greatly reduced. Carpet and upholstery should always be deep cleaned every six months. This will ensure a much happier and healthier home!

On a Regular Base

It is healthy to keep your carpet and upholstery as clean as possible on a regular basis. Not only do clean carpets, rug and upholstery provide health benefits, but a clean home will also allow you to enjoy your carpet and furniture for a longer period of time providing you considerable savings in the long term. Be aware that dirt in carpet and upholstery is a great deal like the action of a thousand small knives. In other words, whenever you walk or sit on your carpets, any dirt is pressed down further into the deeper layers of the carpet, much like tiny blades and they serve to tear into the carpet fibers and will result in a shorter lifespan for your carpets.

By professionally cleaning your carpet, you protect your valuable investment.

You should make sure to always vacuum your carpets and upholstery. It is recommended that you vacuum at least once a week (and more if you have small children or pets) and it is best to choose a vacuum that has an allergen-filtration system.
