Why clean your carpets
Need a carpet clean...
...it's probably worse than you think!
Has the dog burst through the back door covered in mud- and straight across the carpet?
Has your bundle of joy thrown the rattle off the feeding chair-along with the bottle of milk and bowl of pureed spag bol?
Kids rushed in and haven’t taken there shoes off…again. That’s not to mention the spilt tea and a whole host of little marks whose identity are a mystery to you!
Looking over your carpet you can’t help but feel depressed. They look dirty and tired and bringing the rest of the house down.
You’ve had enough!
But the worst is still to come.
It’s what is bubbling away deep down inside the carpet-away from sight. You may have heard people speak of ‘unhealthy carpets’… let’s take a look at what’s really going on!
Would you like to know the real problem
Carpets retain several sources of indoor air pollutants. Pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead particle pollution to name but a few. Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and get trapped in the carpet.Everyday activities can release these gases into your home. Vacuuming or simply walking can contaminate the air for you and your family.
Are you aware that carpets are a haven for dust mites? Especially dirty carpets! The mites feed on your dead skin cells, bacteria and fungi. This promotes an ideal breeding ground. As they ‘re microscopic you will not see them.
Dust mites themselves aren’t allergens-but the faeces they leave behind are…and they produce around 20 dropping a day. Dust mite allergy is extremely common and is most associated with asthma, eczema and rhinitis. Unfortunately, young children who play on the floor can be most at risk
These can develop in a dirty carpet and are also connected to damp and mould. This can cause you some very unpleasant reactions including stomach infections, reduced immune system and further triggering of allergies.
For a while now it has been known that outside contamination levels, especially in soil, can reach the same concentration levels in your home.
Studies show that soil gases- such as the harmful decay products of radon plus organic compounds including pesticides-enter the micro environment and adhere to the surface
It goes without saying...you do not want ANY of these in your carpets
