Many allergy sufferers find themselves experiencing severe allergy symptoms when inside their own homes due to poor indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality can be the result of mold, fungus, mildew, dust, dust mites, chemicals or pollens that have been tracked in from the outdoors taking up residence in the home. One of the most likely places for these allergens to live is in carpets, where they can settle and become trapped. People who are exposed to moldy carpets for prolonged periods of time can develop allergies and become more sensitive to mold in their environment. By cleaning the carpet (i.e. at least twice a year), this onset of allergies can be prevented.
Carpets can become heavily soiled from exposure to pets, children and daily life. When vacuuming no longer gets a carpet clean, the solution is to clean the carpet with extraction cleaner. Carpet cleaning will help family members who suffer from allergies or asthma. It will also get rid of dust mites and fungi. Aside from benefits for allergy and asthma sufferers, a thorough cleaning can help a carpet last longer, look beautiful and remove any odors that become trapped in it.
