Carpet cleaning transforms the indoor atmosphere

Air pollution is often associated with the outdoors — smog, industrial fumes, haze recommended reading. Did you know our indoor air is just as, if no more, polluted? The air in our homes, whether it’s the quiet areas of northern beaches or the urban apartments we live in, needs to be cleaned. What is the key player in indoor air quality? Our carpets. Discover the relationship between air quality and carpet cleanliness.

Carpets are silent air quality influencers

The thick and plush fibers of carpets are great at trapping particles. Even pollutants like pollen and pet dander can be trapped in the fabrics that we walk on every day. This trapping ability prevents larger particles from circulating, but without regular cleaning carpets can become saturated reservoirs for potential pollutants.

The Carpet-Air Connection – What Happens Under Your Feet?

Particle Playground: When you walk, sit or do the fun carpet angels, airborne particles can be inhaled.

Microbial Metropolis : Moisture, food particles, and bacteria can transform carpets into thriving eco-systems that can affect air quality.

Have you ever heard of VOCs? Chemicals that are released from carpeting and cleaning products can contribute to indoor air pollution.

Improve air quality by cleaning carpets

Routine Vacuuming – Make vacuuming a weekly or biweekly ritual. Make sure your vacuum cleaner has a HEPA filtration system to capture even the smallest of particles.

Deep Cleaning Regularity: At least once per year, aim for a deep cleaning by a professional or thorough steam cleaning. This cleaner can go deeper than a vacuum.

Select Natural Carpet Cleaning Solutions: If possible, choose natural carpet cleaning products to reduce the amount of chemicals in your home.

Keep indoor humidity at 30-50% to prevent the growth of moisture-loving bacteria.
