Some of the most horrible environmental hazards exist in your carpet. Things like mites, allergens and germs hide in the fibers and contribute to poor indoor air quality. Although regular vacuuming helps, a thorough carpet cleaning will promote a healthier home or business.

INVISIBLE ENEMIES OF INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Even though you may not see certain dangers on your carpet, it doesn’t mean it’s free of harmful debris. Mold, dust, hair and pet dander are some invisible enemies that create poor indoor air quality. When people walk on it, these particles grind into the carpet fibers.
MOLD & MILDEW
A filthy carpet poses a variety of health problems. Massive amounts of water, a common problem in Tallahassee, results in mildew, even if you can’t smell or see it.
Mold is a classic culprit when mysterious breathing issues develop. This can result in permanent respiratory damage if left untreated.
Dust mites are more of a problem than most people realize. Mites are actually microscopic insects that can burrow into your carpet. They’ll eat anything and produce waste up to 200 times their own body weight every day. This can cause incessant sneezing, breathing problems and allergic reactions.
All kinds of bacteria embed deep within carpet fibers. This includes, but is not limited to, salmonella, E.coli and staphylococcus. Things like beer and pet soils allow for this kind of bacteria growth.
If bacteria is a major concern, you should consider contacting professional carpet cleaning contractors.
KEEPING CARPET CULPRITS AWAY
Vacuuming is the first step when attempting to rid your carpet of contamination. You should always vacuum at least once per week. Use a quality vacuum with powerful suction and a HEPA filter. This will give you a fighting chance against dust mites, dirt, allergens and bacteria. Unfortunately, not even the best vacuum will clean everything hiding in your carpet.
