Top 5 Potential Health Issues Associated With Not Cleaning Your Carpets.

1. Damp carpets can cause asthma.
The Kuopio Regional Institute of Occupational Health conducted a recent study which conclusively found that damp carpets increased the incidences of asthma in an environment where people were constantly exposed to the carpet. Organisms known as volatile organic compounds and microbial growth were found able to flourish in an unclean, damp carpet, and the results were increased cases of bronchial asthma, one of the deepest forms of the disease.
2. Dirty carpets house dust mites.
Dirty carpets are well known to be a breeding ground for dust mites, in the same way that dirty hair is a breeding ground for lice. Dust mites feed off of the same fungi, bacteria, and human skin cells that naturally filter into a carpet and stay if the carpet is not cleaned on a regular basis. Studies have also shown that most people are allergic to dust mites, and as they die, their carcasses are inhaled by humans who come into contact with the dirty carpet. Inhalation of the dead bodies has been known to cause rashes, and eye and nose irritation.
3. Dirty carpets house mold.
Mould has not been proven to link to asthmatic attacks, but this does not mean that mould does not cause humans great discomfort if left unattended. Bacteria and allergens which live on the mould can build up on uncared-for carpeting, and when ingested, can cause allergies to surface via the respiratory system. Worse problems can arise if the body succumbs to the bacteria which live on the mould spores, which it is especially prone to do if already weakened by another disease. If you are experiencing cold-like symptoms more often than normal, it is most likely time to get your carpet cleaned.
4. Athlete’s foot.
As before mentioned, dirty carpets house an incredible number of parasitic organisms which, if ingested into the respiratory system, can cause a number of health issues. The dust, fungi, and other organisms are kicked back into the air by movement on the carpet. However, another risk arises even if the movement on the carpet is not violent enough to move the organisms into the air, they can still cause athlete’s foot by entering the body through tiny cuts in the foot.
5. Mycotoxins.
More serious health issues can arise if the body is exposed to too many mycotoxins, which dirty carpets are an attractive environment for. Buildings are a source of mycotoxins and people living or working in areas with mould increase their chances of adverse health effects. These can range from stomach infections to fatality, depending on the initial health of the exposed person, or over time, as the mycotoxins wear down the body’s defences. For example, Stachybotrys chartarum contains a higher number of mycotoxins than other moulds grown in the indoor environment and has been associated with allergies and respiratory inflammation.

Kids and Pets Can Ruin Your Carpets

White Shag Edit

If you have a hectic home life, chances are that children and pets are the most common cause of this. You fantasize about the day when you didn’t have a care in the world and your home was a tidy, blissful place to be. Of course, things can’t stay like that forever and when you do have children and pets, things can get out of hand pretty quickly, which is why a carpet cleaning service should be high on your list of priorities.

Carpet cleaning is not only a great way to keep your home clean, but it also has health benefits. With children crawling on the floor and pets shedding hair, carpets can soon get dirty and the dirt accumulation can be quite invisible to the eye when it is buried deep within the carpet pile. You might not be aware of the allergens that can be caused from dirty carpets, so considering a carpet cleaning service is definitely the best way to combat any health issues. In addition to this, you can feel safe in the knowledge that your home looks clean and tidy for when visitors come round.

For anyone still unsure about why they should get a carpet cleaning service, just think about how many carpets you have in your home and how many feet tread on those carpets. Shoes that have been worn outside are worn inside and spread the dirt around the house. If you have pale coloured carpets, the dirt is quite often visible, but with darker carpets, you might find it difficult to tell what areas are dirty. Of course, that doesn’t mean there isn’t any dirt, it simply means that it is buried quite deep within the carpet and little hands or paws can easily pick this up if they play on the floor quite often.
Every homeowner takes pride in the appearance of their home, but with children and pets running around, it can be hard to maintain high levels of cleanliness. With a professional carpet cleaning service, it leaves you to focus your attentions on some of the other aspects, and with many companies now promising clean carpets that will be dry in 2 hours, you don’t have to worry about any fuss or mess during the cleaning process. Many homeowners will agree that this is one service worth taking advantage of. Call us, and we will get that done.

Do You Care For Your Sofas

In a perfect world, all couches would be created more or less equally when it comes to cleaning. Of course, this is not at all a perfect world, and couches like to be cleaned in different ways, which is why couch manufacturers created a cleaning code or legend. To find out what type of couch you have, check the care tag, which is usually sewn onto the underside of the seat. #Microfibrecleaning call us today on 0722/0733 427341
