Carpet Cleaning MD and Your Home’s Air Quality

Clean Carpets and Your Home’s Air Quality

Every state has its pollution problems and Maryland is no exception. Most people are surprised that indoor air is two-to-five-times more polluted than outdoor air and is one of the top 5 environmental risks to public health according the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA has been on the rampage to clean-up outdoor pollution such as smog, ozone, and other noxious pollutants but homeowners find themselves in charge of the air quality in their home. Americans are said to spend about 90% of the time inside their homes and because of pollutants, inside air quality has been linked with increasing numbers of asthma and allergy cases. The EPA also reports that cold viruses are caught indoors 90% of the time. Home carpets can be a major source of indoor air pollution because they act like giant filters which trap and collect many types of indoor air pollutants.

Carpets are a paradise for dust mites because they trap dead skin and pet dander which the mites feed on. Dust mites are harmless to most people but cause allergic reactions in asthmatics and others allergic to their feces. Allergens trapped in the carpet may be more hazardous for young children because immune systems are not sophisticated and they spend more time closer to the floor. Animal dander accumulates in carpets and vacuuming does not capture all of the dander. Mold spores can also be found in carpets if mold spores have landed on a damp spot that contains any dust. Basement carpeting is at higher risk for mold, as well as, carpeting in homes located in moister climate areas.

The EPA and the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) state that carpets should be cleaned first for health and then for appearances. Professionals recommend that homeowners vacuum at least three times a week with a High Efficiency Particulate Air filter. Vacuuming will not capture all dander, but there are carpet treatments available that neutralize dander that has been left behind. These treatments, used monthly, should have a positive impact on your allergies and asthma symptoms.
A really good deep professional carpet cleaning can rid your carpet of dust mites, dead skin, pet hair, and mold spores. Some studies have reported that professional carpet cleaning reduces the amount of mite allergen in carpets by more than 90% with each cleaning. Regularly scheduling carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning can help reduce the accumulation of dust mites as they tend to breed more heavily in the spring and summer months and less during the winter. New treatments have also been developed that effectively eliminate dust mites.

People in Maryland who love carpets, love their pets, but have allergies or asthma should not despair. Symptoms can be greatly eased by following the suggestions of carpet professionals and now with newer technology and products Green Choice Carpet Cleaning can significantly improve your home’s air quality.
