Carpet Cleaning Health Benefits

Acorn Carpet Cleaning

Carpet Cleaning has a range of health benefits many people simply aren’t aware of. While many people focus on the serious aesthetic benefits of cleaning, health is often seriously impacted overtime by the spread of dust and bacteria through carpets.

In this article we’ll detail some of the serious benefits that Acorn carpet cleaning can offer your carpet and your health. Acorn Carpet Cleaning has been providing professional services for years, and knows the best way to help you get the most out of your carpet.

Carpets – A major source of Pollutants and Debris

Various studies have found that failing to maintain your carpet can produce a huge build-up of dust and other harmful debris within your carpet. Overtime, these will release into the air of you home, and you’ll inhale them, which can end up being harmful. Young children and the elderly are especially at risk; carpets are often a source of colds and other illnesses which impact them.

A lot can hide in your carpet, building up a range of gasses and particles that’ll pass into the airflow of your home. This includes,

  • Dirt
  • Dust (Carpets hold a huge amount of dust)
  • Bacteria
  • Mould spores
  • Cockroach and Dust Mite allergens
  • Pesticides and other chemical debris tracked in on your shoes

The best way to prevent these kinds of pollutants and debris entering the air of your home is via regular cleaning – but often this isn’t enough. While norming hoovering is good, it cannot remove all the dirt, dust, and grime in your carpet. Furthermore, it will rapidly build up again soon. In the worst cases, some commercially available vacuums can push this debris into the air. The result is that the problem is made much worse.

Acorn Carpet Cleaning offers the best choice for ensuring your home is kept free of these problems and that your carpet is kept truly fresh. Our team at Acorn makes use of a huge range of professional grade equipment to ensure your carpet is kept properly clean. This equipment includes professional vacuums, whose high-suction vacuum and filtration unit guarantees none of the debris escape into the air. Our appliance of a biodegradable molecular spray and hot water extraction technique furthermore ensures no debris or chemicals are left.

Air Quality and Clean Carpets

Carpets will release much of the dirt, dust, and grime they pick up into the air overtime. There’s not much we can do about this – but what we can do is cut down on what can enter the air. Traditional hoovering can only stop so much; it can certainly cut down on dust, but bacteria and other grime is harder to remove.

Acorn’s techniques will ensure your carpets are cleaned down to the fine fibres,

Dust Mites

Dust mites are tiny, microscopic creatures which feed on skin cells and thrive in carpets. Dust mites are an allergen, and can cause problems like sneezing, congestion, and coughing. There are some studies which indicate Dust mites may even worsen asthma, resulting in a difficulty breathing and chest pains.

Dust mites are tough to remove; normal hoovering will struggle to remove them and will rarely cut down a population to have any noticeable effect on health. In some cases, hoovering can cause the Mites to spread to other parts of your home.

Acorn Carpet Cleaning’s use of powerful cleaning technology and methods will ensure any Dust mite population in your home is cut down to size. Our use of powerful vacuums and hot water extraction will ensure any dust mite population is eradicated.

Preventing Mould Growth

Spills and moisture can cause mould to form in your carpet. In other cases, mould spores can be tracked to the carpet by accident. If they’re allowed to remain undisturbed, it will result in the spread of mould. If your home is subject to changes in humidity, this can result in a serious moisture build-up and in turn the emergence of mould. Mould causes some serious allergic reactions – indeed mould is a very common allergen that impacts many people. Worse, the effects of mould are often not easily seen – it weakens the immune system, and so its effects will often be felt in other illnesses and such.

Long term exposure to mould has the potential of causing a range of health issues. These include,

  • Asthma
  • Respiratory ailments

It’s difficult to remove mould spores via traditional cleaning, while removing mould is even harder. The best means to prevent it is through professional cleaning. Acorn uses powerful cleaning methods to ensure that your carpet will be kept clean of any mould. Whereas traditional methods won’t be able to pull out or remove the mould spores entangled in the fibres of your carpet, Acorn Carpet Cleaning will guarantee your carpet is kept truly clean.
