Your Carpets Are an Important Filter
Carpets are a critical element to the health of your indoor environment as they act as a filter, trapping dust, pollen, skin cells, bacteria, food particles, pet dander and other contaminants. Regular carpet and rug cleaning from Advantage Carpet & Upholstery Care in Campbell River does more than keep your home looking clean, it protects your health.
Your air quality is important to you, your family, guests and pets. Your carpet will trap the circulating contaminants that are pulled to the floor by gravity. By doing so, your carpet improves your indoor air – until it becomes saturated. At that point, your carpet’s ability to act as a filter is reduced and particles are released back into the air. With professional cleaning, your carpets will continue to be an effective filter and help protect your health. We also recommend replacing your furnace / air conditioning filter on a regular basis.
Dust Mites – Controlling
It is estimated that 70% of people who have dust allergies are also sensitive to airborne dust mite parts, which includes protein in the pest’s fecal pellets and dead body parts. Dust mites are a common problem for homeowners and feed on microscopic fragments of human skin, fungi and bacteria.
Dust mites always have an abundant supply of food in dirty carpet. We lose approximately 50 million skin cells each day through normal movement. Regular carpet, upholstery and rug cleaning from Advantage Carpet & Upholstery Care will not only reduce the number of dust mites but also reduce their food source. Regular cleaning is especially important for families who have asthma or allergy issues.
