Carpet Cleaning & Indoor Air Quality

 According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution is 2 to 5 times more polluted than outside. In fact, indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top 5 environmental risks to public health.

Effects of indoor air pollutants may be experienced Immediately or years later. Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue are all symptoms. Respiratory diseases, including asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and humidifier fever also show up with exposure to air pollutants.

To reduce energy costs, new buildings and homes are designed to be more airtight.  this prevents “fresh” indoor air from circulating into the home and allows “contaminated” air to recirculate.

Ventilation systems can introduce bacteria, viruses, and mold via the uncleaned ducting. So what may have been an isolated cases of the flu, could be more serious if allowed to run uncleaned.

As a residential and commercial carpet cleaning company, we can help local businesses and families improve indoor air quality. Although carpets dampen sound, make standing more comfortable and give a warm appearance, they also have downsides. Carpeting holds dirt, dust, moisture, and microscopic bugs within the fibers. They are circulated throughout the building or home via the heating and cooling system. Impurities in the air contribute to poor health and reduced productivity and work days. Illnesses like asthma, flu, cold and sinus infections can be prevented with our steam cleaning extraction system.
