Maintaining clean carpets is great for making your home look esthetically pleasing, vacuuming two to three times a week will help you achieve this. The most important reason to keep your carpets clean is to protect your family's health. If you have a family member with athsma, allergies, or a snoring condition; it is crucial to keep you carpets in tip-top shape.
Dirty carpets can retain all sorts of discusting indoor air pollutnants including pet dander, lead, particle pollution and everday dust and dirt from skin cells, shoes and more.
Regular vacuuming can actually engage these allergens into the air and spread them around, rather than picking them all up if you have not sanitized your carpets in the recent past. This is one of the reasons why regularly scheduled carpet cleaning is strongly recommended every 12-18 months. Carpet cleaning with specialized shampoos can prevent the growth of mold growth as well as clearing out any potential dust mites & particles living in your carpets. Dust mites themselves aren’t allergens, but they have a tendency to leave behind feces and body fragments that are.
