Cleaning your carpet could improve the indoor air quality of your home or business.
When it comes to indoor air quality, the basic law of gravity causes common particles like pollen, dust, pet and insect dander, to fall to the floor. Your carpet fibers can trap these particles and remove them from the air that you breath. The air that you breath is normally higher than the floor and the benefits could be noticeable with less air-born particles being circulated around. Good vacuuming on a regular basis, with a Carpet and Rug Institute(CRI) approved vacuum can aid in removing dust and other allergens from the air that is breathed.
Asthma and Allergies:
There is a misunderstanding about what people with asthma and allergies should do about avoiding carpet. There have been studies done that have proven that this is not true at all. The reality is that a carpeted flooring is the best choice for reducing the amount of air born particles. With less air-born particles, people can actually find less symptoms related to there allergies.
Mold and VOC misunderstandings:
The best things for indoor air quality is to keep your carpet clean and dry. Mold simply cannot grow on synthetic fibers. Carpet is one of the lowest emitters of volatile organic compounds compared to other possible flooring types. To make sure that you also have carpet cushion and adhesive that meet or exceeds the Carpet and Rug Institute’s Green Label Plus Indoor Air Quality Standard and the government standards for indoor air quality, visit the Carpet and Rug Institute website for more information.
