How Professional Carpet Cleaning Can Improve Indoor Air Quality
As homeowners, we all want to ensure that our families are safe and healthy. That's why we do everything we can to keep our homes clean and tidy. One often overlooked aspect of a healthy home is the quality of the air we breathe. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has even identified indoor air pollution as one of the top five environmental health risks.
That's where carpet can help.
Did you know that your carpet acts as the largest air filter in your home, collecting dust and allergens out of the air? In fact, studies show that carpeted areas have been reported to lower allergy and asthma symptoms. But, like any air filter, to be effective, it needs to be cleaned regularly.
Pet dander, dust mite matter, and other allergens can accumulate in carpets. One study found that carpets can hold up to eight times their weight in dirt and dust, making them a breeding ground for allergens and bacteria.
Regular vacuuming and spot cleaning can help, but they won't remove the deep-seated dirt and stains that lurk in the fibers. That's where professional carpet cleaning comes in. Professional cleaners use powerful equipment and specialized cleaning solutions to reach deep into the carpet fibers and remove dirt and non-living allergens that vacuuming and spot cleaning can't. The result is a healthier home with improved indoor air quality.
At Zerorez®, we use a patented cleaning process that involves our unique ZrWater® cleaning solution, which is completely safe for people, pets, and the planet. The ZrWater is applied to the carpets using high-pressure cleaning wands that extract the dirt and grime from deep within the fibers, leaving zero residue from soaps or harsh chemicals behind, allowing your carpets to dry in record time. This process leaves your carpets looking and feeling like new, while also improving the indoor air quality in your home.
Ultimately, professional carpet cleaning is an essential step in improving indoor air quality and creating a healthier home. With regular professional cleanings, you can reduce the number of allergens and pollutants in your home, resulting in better health for you and your loved ones. So, if you're concerned about the air quality in your home, consider scheduling a professional carpet cleaning with Zerorez today.
