Carpet Cleaning and Upholstery Cleaning Health Impacts 

carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning is something that is usually done when we decide to improve the appearance of your home. Its main purpose is to improve the interior state of a property by removing dirt, stains and odors. There are, however many other positive effects of carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning which are not widely recognized despite of their great significance. Some of the most important health effects of carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning are associated with its effect on indoor air quality and on dust mites.

Dust mites

Dust mites are microscope bugs that feed with dead skin cells which shed from human and animal skin. Although dust mites do not carry diseases themselves, they can trigger allergic reactions in people suffering from asthma and other allergies. Skin cells accumulate in places like mattresses, sofas and carpeted areas and consequently those are the places with higher concentration of dust mites. Tens of thousands of dust mites are present in an average house, particularly in households with pets like dogs and cats.

Although it is almost impossible to completely eliminate dust mites from your house, there are several ways to reduce their amount. 

Simple measures like hovering your carpets and mattresses airing your bed and the whole place can help. However, professional carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning can significantly reduce dust mites and control the health problems linked to them.
Carpet can also be favorable palace the development of other pesticides and fungi which might irrigate existing eczemas or influence appearance of new ones.

Indoor Air Pollution

Indoor air quality is directly influenced by the state of your carpet. Carpets trap various solid matters and small particles and can be source of chemical emissions and pollution if they are not properly maintained. This may lead to eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, skin irritations and cough.

It depends on the type of the property and the traffic patterns how frequently a carpet needs to be cleaned to avoid extensive levels of indoor air pollution. The chart provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) specifies the recommended carpet cleaning frequency.
