Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality is a Silent Global Epidemic
Indoor air pollution causes 4,000,000 premature deaths a year from lung cancer, pneumonia, cerebral infarction, lung disease or heart disease according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Other mild and/or chronic diseases such as skin, throat, nose, eyes, headache, fatigue, allergies or respiratory difficulties are also associated with indoor air quality. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) The quality of air inside buildings, offices or single-family homes is usually 2 to 5 times more dangerous than the air outside. One of the factors that heavily damages the indoor air quality is dirty carpet and upholstery.
Dirty Carpet: An epidemic taken for granted
Indoor air Quality does not get the importance it deserves, even though we spend 80% of the time in closed spaces. The quality of indoor air in hospitals, homes and work centers are evidently the worst. All the companies have an obligation by law to maintain optimum air quality in buildings for public and/or private use, where air conditioning systems are greater than 70kW. However, there are no regulations for maintaining the indoor air quality of homes. This leaves us with a bigger responsibility of keeping our indoor air clean along with the factors that damage it, such as your carpet, furniture covers and upholstery.
The situation of Eden Prairie, Minneapolis
More than 30% homes in Eden Prairie, Minneapolis are likely to have pets and we love them to bits. However, pet dander is something we should all be careful about. Pet dander and other air pollutants can greatly worsen the air quality and lead to asthma, growth of molds, dust mites, and mycotoxins which have terrible health impacts on us and our endearing pets at home. The best solution to get rid of all these issues is regular cleaning of your carpets, rugs and upholstery. Today fewer people understand the importance of breathing clean air, especially when you’re at a place like home where you are supposed to be “secured”.
Myth: Carpet is bad for people having Allergies and Asthma
One misperception about carpets is that the people with asthma and allergies should avoid carpets in the house. In fact, the reality is entirely the opposite. The studies carried out in many countries including USA, England, Holland and others, where the use of carpet is common have shown that properly cleaned carpets help reduce symptoms and they are the best option among precautionary measures for those who suffer from asthma and allergies. Moreover, clean carpets also help reduce the exposure to Radon, which is one of the most dangerous radioactive indoor pollutant. People with asthma and allergies “need” carpets, but only the clean ones.
Reality: Carpet is good for your health and Indoor Air Quality
Although we do not usually associate rugs, upholstery and carpets with a better quality of indoor air, the truth is that both have a very positive effect on the overall health of human beings. Under the action of gravity, the commonly floating particles in the air, such as dust, pollen, pet dander and insects inevitably fall to the ground. The function of the fibers of carpets or carpets is to trap these particles preventing them from circulating through the air and consequently improve the quality of the air that we breathe. Our only mission should be to perform a proper and complete cleaning to effectively remove dust and allergens that get trapped.
Where is the problem?
The real problem lies in “not cleaning” the carpets and upholstery as frequently as we should. Imagine when was the last time you cleaned your clothes, then think about the last time you cleaned your sofa covers where you sit and the carpet that you walk on. What would you expect if you don’t clean your clothes for months at a time? Obviously, you will start getting some serious health issues. It is the same case when it is about your carpets and upholstery that you are exposed to every single day.
How carpets cleaning improves indoor air quality?
It is only necessary to frequently clean the carpets and upholstery to eliminate all allergens and dust that have been trapped between them. As long as carpets and carpets are kept clean, the symptoms of allergies and asthma will not be triggered and you will be more secured. Therefore, if you have been hesitating to install carpets and upholstery in your home because of asthma or allergy, it is high time that you consider getting your home carpeted. This will be significantly helpful if you regularly schedule for getting them cleaned.
The Solution to Indoor Air Quality is Cleaning
Cleaning your carpets and upholstery removes dust, allergens and chemical agents which are harbored in your carpet. We can use a disposable filter vacuum to clean floors, carpets and upholstery. However, the effectiveness of cleaning greatly depends on your approach to getting your carpets cleaned. There is no better approach for carpet cleaning than to get it done by the professionals and experts.
Why Hiring a professional carpet cleaning service Ensures Optimal Indoor Air Quality?
We can keep talking about the DIYs and how to clean your carpet by yourself at home. However, even after all that effort and time you will put into this tough errand, you will not end up with results as effective as you would by using a professional carpet cleaning service.
The vacuum cleaner can remove dirt at the surface level, but odors, stains and deeply embedded soil can remain in there persistently. That’s where professional carpet cleaning comes into play. It is certainly recommended to regularly vacuum and clean the stain spots, but it is also true that these approaches are not enough to keep your carpets, upholstery, your indoor air quality and your health in perfect condition. Deep cleanings are also crucial to restore the beauty of your carpet. Here are the reasons why using a professional carpet cleaning service regularly would be a good move for you.
• Added value:
Calling in a professional carpet cleaning technician is the best way to achieve a truly clean result. A trained technician will know in advance the importance of localized treatment and will understand exactly what specialized products and tools will be used to keep your carpets protected.
As a standard, carpets from different areas require a different cleaning regime. Since area rugs are composed of different fibers, materials and dyes, we recommend leaving the cleaning to professionals to ensure that each area rug gets the individualized attention it deserves.
• Guaranteed security:
In general, the hiring of professionals ensures that the carpets in your living room are beautifully restored without the risk of shrinkage, fraying or other damages that can permanently destroy your investments.
• Importance of a cleaning professional:
Carpet cleaning can be a labor-intensive task, but even if you have the time and patience to clean them yourself, you could cause damage without realizing it.
