Professional carpet cleaning prevents a build-up of allergens and bacteria. It will be much more effective at lifting dust and dirt out of the carpet. In return, this creates a higher indoor air quality for you and your family. Since indoor air has been shown to be much more polluted than outdoor air, it is important that homeowners do what they can to purify their air.
FACT: Bacteria can live for over four weeks in your carpet, therefore ruling the “5-second rule” a myth. Every year, several pounds of soil can accumulate in your carpet. As well, it accumulates the 1.5 million skin flakes each person sheds an HOUR (another not so fun fact). Vacuuming should be done at least twice a week; however, microbiologists have identified that the air being blown from a running vacuum is in the top 5 places with the highest number of germs in your home. This is why it is so important to have your carpets professionally cleaned regularly. It is recommended to be done at least every 12 months and more often if you have pets or children.
