Importance of Professionally Cleaned Area Rugs
Area rugs are among the most frequently used items in the house. Over time, they can become a hotbed of germs, dust, dirt, allergens, bacteria, pet dander, and human hair. Due to constant foot traffic, these microbes and bacteria can stay hidden in rug fibers for a year if they are not regularly cleaned.
Here are just some of the many benefits of professionally cleaning your area rugs.
According to the EPA, a dirty rug can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including dust, dirt, pollen, mold spores, bacteria, pesticides, and other allergens. When you vacuum or walk across your rug, these pollutants get released into the air and can lead to a wide range of respiratory and other health problems, especially in children and the elderly. Professional rug cleaning helps to remove dust mites, bacteria, and other allergens, and ultimately helps your family breathe easier.
Increase Longevity of Your Area Rug
Dirt and dust build up in the area rug fibers can cause them to appear dull and grungy, and lead to wear and tear. Running, crawling and other regular activities can further push dirt and debris deep into your carpet. Regular carpet cleaning gives rugs the refresh they need to remain healthy and fresh.
Additionally, compared to carpets, area rugs are actually quite delicate, and cannot handle regular cleaning solutions, chemicals, and approaches. They should be professional cleaning depending on their type, material, and condition.
Improves Air Quality
Even the best vacuum cleaners can only clean the top 1/4 of the fibers of rugs. When you walk or do any other activities on your carpet, it can get released into the air and negatively impact your air quality.
Removes Dust Mites and Bedbugs
Many homes have dust mite infestations. But because the creatures are microscopic, many homeowners are unaware of this problem. While dust mites themselves aren’t allergens, their feces and body fragments are. Bedbugs can also find a home in your rugs and can bite you, any small children, and pets in the home. You must clean your rugs regularly to avoid health problems from dust mites and bedbugs.
