Many people believe that the only reason to clean carpets is to get he dirt out. But that’s not the case.
The outdoor air contains pollens, fungus, bacteria, air pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust – and literally hundreds of other chemicals that can absorb into your carpeting. When you and your family members come into your home, you carry those pollens, bacteria and chemicals in your hair and on your skin, clothing and especially your shoes. Not surprisingly, all those contaminates end up in your carpet.
If you have allergies, asthma, emphysema, or other breathing problems – one major source of your problem could be the pollens, fungus, and chemicals in your carpet.
In addition, as you may know, tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 different chemical compounds, 43 of which cause cancer. And even if you don’t smoke, those chemicals get in your shoes, you track them in to your home and leave them in your carpet.
If you’re sensitive to cigarette smoke, you might find that you’ll breathe easier after you hire a company to get those harmful chemicals out of your carpet.
So in addition to getting rid of dirt, another important reason to clean your carpet is to get rid of pollens, fungus, bacteria, chemicals and the tars and residue from tobacco smoke.
